Pretty and Packing: Women Who Own Guns
Pretty and Packing: Women Who Own Guns

Listen
AIR DATE: January 11, 2012

You don't have to be Annie Oakley to pack a pistol.  That's what photographer Lindsay McCrum found out, when she started snapping portraits of female gunowners.  The resulting book, "Chicks with Guns," show women from all walks of life, owning every sort of steel from semi-automatics to long-range rifles.  From a bride holding a pistol against her white satin, to a single mother with a Glock, to a Texas beauty queen with a 20-gauge, the stereotypical ideas of who owns a gun are changing.  We talk with Lindsay McCrum about her art, and two local female gun owners on the appeal of firearms.

GUEST
Lindsay McCrum, photographer, "Chicks with Guns"
