February is here and you know what that means … it’s the month of LOVE! Yep, Valentines Day … The day we profess our feelings of passion with roses, chocolates and jewelry. You might be surprised that there are actually a number of sites out there that can help shooters bedazzle their dearests with some firearm forward bling. Not attached? There’s nothing wrong with giving yourself a little love this February 14th.
For the lady hunter and outdoors woman, click on over to Doeville. Proprietor Kim Pezzeminti finds one-of-a-kind pieces featuring semi-precious stones, copper, leather and antlers make this jewelry perfect for the woman who loves the natural beauty of the outdoors.
Athena Means, at GunGoddess.com, offers bullet casing jewelry for both men and women. For the ladies, jewelry in this collection uses brass that has been cut and rolled back, forming pretty petals around the case head. There are even options for the primer pocket to be filled with a variety of colored Swarovski Crystals. For men, be sure to check out the cuff links and personalized pendant options.
Another site for the ladies, check out Addie Mia on etsy.com. The shop features jewelry designed by Natalie Foster of Girls Guide to Guns. Like Natalie, this jewelry is pretty, feminine and modern. Whether you go for a pistol pendant or a more traditional piece, you have the satisfaction of buying from someone who shares shooting with the world.
Looking for something a bit more subtle? Check out Hot Caliber. Proprietors Kelle and Manos Phoundoulakis feature flattened bullet jewelry in sleek and modern settings. Offered in both gold and silver, from everything from earrings and pendants to keychains and lapel pins, this jewelry is an elegant way to show that you and your loved one are shooters.
Of course, there are plenty of other ways to say I love you too. Ditch the restaurant and take your honey on a date to the range. Who needs a chocolate when you can shoot up a box of these?
On a budget? You can always pen your sweetie a little love note.
Speaking of pens and the month of love, share the moment you fell in love with shooting for a chance to win a Smith & Wesson tactical pen!
And, if that’s not enough, our sponsors at Smith & Wesson added a throw and coffee cup that will be yours and only yours at the office or home!
Editor’s note: We think another very fine gift idea is Julie’s new book, hot off the presses — Shoot: Your Guide to Shooting and Competition.
If you’d like to win this bundled package of goodies from Julie G and Smith & Wesson, please let us know the moment you fell in love with the shooting sports or traditions! Deadline is midnight on Valentine’s Day!
