I Carried a Gun and Loved It

    The most memorable Valentine’s Day gift I ever received was a black nylon fanny pack designed to hold a gun. For my live-in, gun-nut boyfriend, it was a grand romantic gesture and an encore, of sorts, to his Christmas present, a .22-caliber semi-automatic pistol. I had hoped for the new “lady friendly” hammerless Smith & Wesson .38 revolver, but the fanny pack would have to do.

    It definitely topped his gifts from years past: a can of pepper spray and a tactical pocketknife. And the timing was perfect. I had just qualified for a concealed-handgun permit under a recently passed state law-the state, of course, being Texas.

    Great to see positive firearm articles in mainstream magazines.
