As National Breast Cancer Awareness Month comes to a close, we are reminded that survivors come in all shapes and sizes. Yet they all share one distinguishing trait—the ability to overcome whatever challenges that may come their way.
Keeping in the pink spirit of October, we decided to hold a contest for the ladies. The prize you ask? Since there are more and more female gun enthusiasts out there, we decided that it should be a pink range bag from Bang Bang Boutique (pictured below).
All you have to do is comment below with your best survivor quote. Do you have a personal mantra? Share it with us and it could win you this chic piece of shooting gear.
There are just a few guidelines. You must be 18 and a U.S. resident. Also, all quotes have to be approved, so it might take a day for it to appear underneath this post. The deadline to enter is Nov. 22, 2011. We’ll be picking the winning quote and announcing the winner through our Facebook and Twitter accounts.
Kim Bortz, Bang Bang Boutique owner, explained that her passion for guns all started with a day at the range in January 2004. That was the very first time she fired one. And she discovered that she was a pretty good shot.
From that point on, she was hooked.
However, soon she realized that there was a distinct lack of shooting accessories tailored for women. “It seemed like my only choice was to suck it up and be one of the guys,” shares Kim.
But then inspiration hit. Coming across a lavender range bag, she decided that there had to more stuff out there for the markswoman. “Not just stuff that was girly, but stuff made for women’s specific needs. Shooting doesn’t need to be masculine – it can have a feminine side too,” she says.
So she started Bang Bang Boutique, an online store dedicated to serving the needs of the lady shooter.
This one is for the girls. Enter by Nov. 22, 2011 to win a pink range bag.
