Chicks with Guns

There's something intoxicating about a woman who can handle a firearm and not make an issue out of it. As though it's a part of her. We've got them in spades down here, though the population (15-20 million strong) certainly isn't restricted to Texas...
Lindsay McCrum has captured just a few of them in her new book Chicks with Guns. No politics, no ideology, just a smattering of armed women that cuts across demographics, young to old, east to west, well-heeled to hard-scrabble, and all-confident and in their element in these self-styled portraits.
Ms McCrum will be on-hand tomorrow at Sloan/Hall for a book signing. I'll be there, just to see who shows up.

... and yes, I realize that this will appeal to some of you more than others.

It's so much more appealing when they aren't all dolled up in some Barbour getup like it's time to bust pheasant or something...
