A Girl and Her Gun: Re-Post

Wednesday, March 14, 2012


Man, I mention a problem and I get swarmed with solutions.  I pretty much know how to email and type in a word document.  That covers my knowledge of computers, so thank you all for helping me!!

Maybe you can help me with my other problems like who is currently running our country, the other people that want to run our country, taxes, little boys that don't remember to put the toilet seat down...anyone???

Here is the missing post from yesterday(edited slightly).  Thanks again!!!!!

I have struggled to find the words to express what I am feeling.  I don't want to accidentally insult anyone, but at the same time, I want to be sure that everyone understands my motivation.

I know 100% that this community is made up of very generous, caring people.  People who have been giving back and doing for others long before I came along, just as I have been giving back and doing for others in communities outside of the gun world for, well all my life.  I realize that those who offer up additional prizes to the Give-A-Ways,  are doing it out of pure kindness and desire, and that you aren't doing it because of me, but I do want to mention, that I am NEVER expecting anything from anyone.

I received an email from someone saying "I am sorry, I can not contribute this time."   I don't want anyone to be sorry or feel bad.  If you gave to last time wonderful and if you didn't wonderful.  I never dreamed anyone would donate last time.  Not because I didn't think others are generous, just because my mind doesn't think like that. I was simply doing what I could to give because I am crazy passionate about empowering woman. I wasn't looking to get anything from anyone.  

The Give-A-Ways I do are out of my desire to do what I can to give back to a community that has given much to me and to help educate and encourage women.  That is it.

I am thankful for the support and for the team work, but please know that I am not asking or expecting anyone to give anything to me or to the the events that I plan. 

To be honest, I used feel guilty a great deal of the time.  I felt like I was constantly taking and not offering much back.  Up until Anastasiya, I didn't even have a cool gun for people to shoot, I don't have any expertise to offer, I have nothing, but supportive words and encouragement.  I DO NOT do the Give-A-Ways out of guilt.  I do them out of love and a desire help others, like I have all my life, but I wanted to make it clear that I am never trying to get anything more from anyone.

Regarding boys and toilet seats: install a urinal. No, I'm not being facetious. That way the boys can use it for peeing and there's no discussion about the toilet seat being permanently down.

YES - I AGREE - OUR LITTLE BOY DID THAT!!! NOT ME!!!!!!! Of course he hasn't lived at home for 4 years, and was not home a few weeks ago . . . . . . . . . perhaps the cat, Ms. Daisy???????

Already planned a urinal for our three boys and a walk in shower in the house remodling!

Regarding the give-a-ways, I am very glad you are willing and able to help other women obtain something that they might not otherwise be able to do!

You are so well prepared. No remodel in our future, so he's gonna have to put it down because his sisters are gonna take him out if he doesn't:)

Why do you think icky acrylic crocheted toilet seat covers were so popular once upon a time? If made properly they force the seat to fall, and, well, let's just say they're nearly indestructible and highly washable.

The 3 1/2 yr old was potty trained peepee anyway by going off the porch.

Love the post. I'm in a house full of girls, so I really don't have the option to not think about this.
