Wanna Win WON? Bang Bang Boutique’s ‘Lucky’ range bag and goodies!

Bang Bang Boutique’s giving of the green …

The Celtic knot symbol is also referred to as the mystic knot, or the endless knot. The more esoteric or spiritual meaning of this symbol alludes to beginnings and endings. A less spiritual representation is also related to the knot’s endless nature. Some may use this symbol as a charm of sorts – warding against pistol jams, wind blowing targets away, flying hot brass, no room at the range, or running out of ammo too soon.

For this St. Patrick’s Day give away, Bang Bang Boutique is offering up a range kit that will prepare you for a day of shooting, with all the necessities and a wee bit of good fortune.

A little Celtic bling to make you feel lucky and happy all year long!

First there is a hunter green small range bag, reminiscent of the color of a lucky four-leaf clover.  Atop the bag is a glittering Celtic knot design – only hinting at the treasures found inside.


Comfy all day, so she say!

To protect those ears is a pair of EarPro Sonic Defenders to protect your hearing without interfering with your ability to hear routine sounds or conversations. Providing a NRR of 24 dB, sounds at safe levels are allowed to pass through the ear canal, while potentially harmful noises (above 85 dB) are reduced via a proprietary design.  No luck is needed in trying to guess if these ear plugs will fit in your wee ear holes, since they are available in three sizes and are comfortable enough to wear all day long.


Wowzers! Lookin' at the world through marmalade glasses!

For your eyes, included is a pair of Ruthless Color Safety Glasses with EVA vented foam in orange.  These glasses are designed to make you feel like a winner all day long.  Not only do they look fantastic on, they are perhaps the most comfortable safety glasses you have ever worn.  The EVA foam provides increased protection from airborne debris and gasses.  They are ANSI Z87.1-2003 certified.

Can you find the lucky leopard rug in the mix? It'll be yours if you win!

Finally, to cradle your firearm in the style it deserves when not in use, Bang Bang Boutique is including a Lucky Leopard medium pistol rug.  This pistol rug will fit up to a large frame auto /4” revolver.

Even if you are note fortunate enough to win this give away – there is still treasure to discover at Bang Bang Boutique!  We are committed to providing women firearm accessories that are both stylish and functional both on and off the range.  To get you started on your shopping adventure, use the following coupon code to get 10% off your order this weekend: WON31712

    When I go hunting, I have a pair of lucky socks I wear. They first became my lucky socks when I wore them during crew races in college. I’m hoping one of the four leaf clovers I’ve found will help me win this fantastic range kit! (I have a knack for finding them.)

  • Barbara Daca says: March 14, 2013 at 7:09 pm

    Clearly there is no Celtic Charm better than the Celtic Knot! Such a treasure once lost and forgot! A bag of Irish green to see you through, any range day whether skies are grey or blue! Surely the wee people will see, this beauteous bag of treasure is all any woman truely needs!

  • Denise Burrows says: March 14, 2013 at 4:51 pm

    My shooting mat is my comfort zone. I can get in my shooters bubble and squeeze….

  • Laura Koehler says: May 16, 2012 at 3:31 pm

    No lucky charms, just pure dumb luck. That is why we shoot so much.

  • Sharon says: March 20, 2012 at 7:41 am

    Im just getting back to shooting after 5 years. I don’t have a lucky charm.

  • Mary Beth Bien says: March 19, 2012 at 8:57 pm

    My lucky charms are my buckeye my boyfriend found, and a family friend I took hunting. He is 9 and I grunted in and shot my first buck ever with him in the stand. Best feeling ever! It was even more special because he got to experience it with me!!

  • Anne Vinnola says: March 19, 2012 at 3:30 pm

    My family….My husband has taught me tons, my son called my first turkey in and my girls are a blast to hunt with!

  • Jodi says: March 19, 2012 at 3:27 pm

    I just pick up the first rock I see when I go hunting and put it in my pocket. When I get home I throw it in a big bowl with the other rocks. (Sometimes it even makes it into the bowl BEFORE I accidentally run it through the washer!)

  • Kathryn Karcher says: March 19, 2012 at 12:52 pm

    I need a lucky charm. My shooting is definitely sub-par. Maybe this green bag with the bling would help me shoot better!

  • Hollie Neighbors says: March 19, 2012 at 10:53 am

    Ha, high heels. I just spent a day at the range proving that whatever men can do, women can also do it in heels.

  • Anita Leach says: March 19, 2012 at 7:47 am

    My lucky charm is an old old St Hubert medal we found in my Great Aunt’s apartment after she passed away. She was a little tiny lady with a lot of medical issues, but she loved to hear all about our hunts and what we had seen. So I wear it when I hunt for her and for the fact that St Hubert is the patron saint of hunters.

  • denise williams says: March 18, 2012 at 2:35 pm

    My lucky charm I take out on the range with me is def my husband, aka my best friend. It might sound cliche’, but it’s true. When I shoot with him, I always do my best! Thanks for the opportunity to possibly win this awesome giveaway!

  • Kerri says: March 18, 2012 at 11:34 am

    My Glock G26. It’s such a reliable gun, I carry it (almost) everywhere and just knowing it’s there makes me feel luckier than someone who doesn’t carry.

  • Andrea says: March 17, 2012 at 12:32 am

    My husband seems to be my lucky charm. I shoot much better when he’s around. Maybe it’s just the competition, since I am the better shot 🙂

  • Katherine says: March 16, 2012 at 3:54 pm

    I always take my hubby – he’s the one who really rekindled my interest in shooting and always brings me luck!

  • Scott taylor says: March 16, 2012 at 12:07 pm

    My lucky charm is a silver ring that was my great uncles. He was in the 1st Marine Division from The Battle of Peleliu till the end of the war. After his tour was over he became a career Marine and while he was stationed in China, him along with some of his buddies got Eagle Globe and Anchor rings made that say Peiping China 1946. He passed years ago but it is my lucky charm and reminds me every day of him and the sacrifices made by so many for our freedom

  • Cindy Heiser says: March 16, 2012 at 9:11 am

    I don’t have a lucky charm yet!

  • Barb says: March 16, 2012 at 8:15 am

    My lucky charm is taking my husband to shoot along with me at the range. When we shoot together, we do awsome.

  • Melynda says: March 16, 2012 at 7:04 am

    LOVE that bag!

  • Melynda says: March 16, 2012 at 6:58 am

    It came about sort of by accident. I just got married (for the second time) and had to combine my house into my new husbands. I was packing and moving boxes and my childhood jewlry box dumped out. I saw a little clover pendant that my dad had brought back for me from a golf trip when i was about 14. I scooped it up and stuck it in my pocket and kept packing. ( My father had passed a year before, and I sort of did not want to think about it) I forgot about the little glass clover, until a few months later.remembered it!, and really though had lost it for good.. Then while folding clothes in the basement, I opened the cabinet, and and there it was. My Husband had fished it out of my jeans a few months earlier while doing the wash and sat it on a high shelf. I never saw it there. My knap sack that I carry my target gun and cleaning kit in was sitting there and I ZIPPED it inside a little pocket. So now any time I head out to shoot, Daddys little clover is hiding in my bag. I think he’d get a kick out of that….he used to tell my brothers–saftey is number one–” count them in and count them out!…that is my little concentraition tip from Dad too.

  • michelle d says: March 16, 2012 at 6:03 am

    My lucky charm is my Ruger mark 2, it was my grandfathers. I love the gun and someday I will pass it down to my daughter.

  • nicole burrage says: March 15, 2012 at 10:26 pm

    I have a pair of lucky shoes that I wear to the range….. Although the shoes do not make me shoot better, that comes from skill and practice. I do stand a little taller in them, and they do give me a little more confidence. 🙂

  • Kimberly Walsh says: March 15, 2012 at 3:49 pm

    My husband buys me some great ball caps. I love them and hate to shoot without one. I feel like his confidence and accuracey is helping me pull the trigger when i have one of them on.

  • Lori says: March 15, 2012 at 12:54 pm

    As a serious shooter, it is important to wear rose lipstick and my maroon “Doeville” ball cap when I shoot my XDM9 or coral lipstick and my black “Doeville” ball cap when I shoot my shotgun or Ruger 1022 rifle. I also bring my daughter and my three favorite men (Hubby, Son and Son-In-Law)-they are my lucky charms. They remind me to pack everything we’ll need and to bring plenty of ammo! Thank you for the opportunity to win this fabulous prize!

  • Janet K says: March 14, 2012 at 4:26 pm

    I am a newbie at this…..so far, just a quick prayer..

  • Rachel Baker says: March 14, 2012 at 9:00 am

    Mine is not a lucky charm but a prayer for safety before stepping into the field to hunt or field trial and gratitude for the opportunity.

  • Nicole says: March 13, 2012 at 10:04 pm

    My lucky charm is also my husband. I seem so shoot much better when he comes with me!
    Love this giveaway! Thanks for the chance to win!

  • Brittany Fountain says: March 13, 2012 at 9:50 pm

    Sounds like a lie, but my husband is my lucky charm. He knows how to keep me calm so I don’t flinch or make any small mistakes. Learning new techniques while hunting takes patience and he is so soft spoken and clear that I can usually take after him and then I can be patient too. At the range he calms me down and critiques me when I start getting irritated at my own shots. I’m lucky to have him. Blessed that we enjoy the same hobbies!

  • Diane Hassinger says: March 13, 2012 at 6:16 pm

    My lucky charm is my son Mathew’s Savage 30-06. This gun goes on all hunts with me, and has helped me take many trophies. The reason this gun is so special is that my son died 15 years ago, and by taking his rifle, I am “taking my son” with me. We do a lot of hunting together this way, and my lucky charm has not let me down!

  • Lisa Lovelace says: March 13, 2012 at 5:54 pm

    I’m lucky my daddy taught me how to shoot at a very young age….and that I still get to shoot with him today. It’s great bonding time for us.

  • Katrina Dauzat says: March 13, 2012 at 5:54 pm

    As a “newbie” at range shooting, I like to have everything neatly organized… That way I’m not worried about needing something, and getting distracted.
    The excitement of shooting and seeing the growth in myself is the best feeling ever!

  • Yvonne says: March 13, 2012 at 5:35 pm

    I have a special outfit I wear each month for my IDPA competitions. I wore something different this month and didn’t shoot well at all. Back to the good ole standby in April

  • Jamie Schwenn Herda says: March 13, 2012 at 5:17 pm

    Not to sound too sappy,but my lucky charm is my hubby:) He got me into hunting and bought me my first rifle and most recently my first Glock<3. He is my biggest fan and always encourages me–he is just as excited as I am, when I hit the kill zone.

  • Tanya Cioffi says: March 13, 2012 at 5:13 pm

    I always take the antler from the first deer I ever shot with me when hunting!! My daughter always gives me a kiss and wishes me luck too!!

  • Yvonne Davila says: March 13, 2012 at 5:08 pm

    my lucky charm is my husband. Oh, and my Taurus Judge!

  • Eq4bits says: March 13, 2012 at 4:56 pm

    My dragon pendant purchased at a renfaire several years ago.

  • michelle decker says: March 13, 2012 at 4:44 pm

    My lucky charm is my gun ruger mark 2 it was my grandfathers. I love shooting and showing up the guys.

  • Karen says: March 13, 2012 at 4:25 pm

    I have over 125 lucky charms….the lovely ladies of Austin Sure Shots!

  • Melissa I. says: March 13, 2012 at 4:24 pm

    My lucky charm is my hubby. I like to take him to the range with me. He is so supportive and has helped me perfect my new obsession. Glad to have my best friend be intereseted in the same things I am. I used to shoot when I was a kid and my husband helped bring the hobby to light again.

  • Karen says: March 13, 2012 at 4:22 pm

    I have over 125 lucky charms….the wonderful ladies of Austin Sure Shots!! How can I not shoot better with them and their friendship?

  • Heidi says: March 13, 2012 at 3:03 pm

    My lucky charm is my mother/son charm my oldest son gave me which I put on a Marine Mothers dog tag my youngest son gave to me. I also always go with my husband who reminds me to relax and enjoy our time at the range. I love to go, especially after a long hard week of work. And I always say a prayer thanking God for another day. Happy St. Patty’s Day.

  • Donnette says: March 13, 2012 at 2:32 pm

    The first Sunday of every month is my IDPA match. I decide on one thing to improve on this day. I customized my electronic ears by painting them a country blue and put a damask design, with rhinestones. They make me feel feminine and special! I can do anything with them on!

  • Jen says: March 13, 2012 at 12:57 pm

    I have my fathers old range bag that I carry with me every time I go to shoot, and quite a bit of his old hunting clothing of his, I wear a piece everytime I go out. It reminds me to be patient. He would always tell me “Slow even breaths, be patient and they will come.”

  • Ellen Benitz says: March 13, 2012 at 12:49 pm

    Everytime I go hunting, I say this prayer ” thank you lord for giving me the opportunity and the ability to hunt and enjoy your creation today. If you bless me with a chance to harvest one of your creations today please bless my shot, make it a clean quick kill so that I honor your creation with a quick and painless as possible passing. Thank you for helping me to provide for my family and friends, amen.”
    It helps to put me in the right frame of mind to enjoy hunting, whether I harvest anything or not. If I don’t ‘see’ anything it’s becuase today it was not meant to happen.

  • Jane says: March 13, 2012 at 12:24 pm

    It really never occurred to me that I might need a “lucky charm” or “spiritual habit” to improve my marksmanship. But after reading the comments above, I am clearly “out of the loop”. Thanks to WON I am now in search of that secret something that will improve my capabilities. I wonder what it will be???? A giraffe??? hmmmm…..

  • Amanda MacDonald says: March 13, 2012 at 12:02 pm

    My lucky charm is the handmade red glass charm my friend Julie made for me before Nationals last year. It clips on my quiver and looks awesome.

  • Gretchen Steele says: March 13, 2012 at 11:46 am

    My lifelong lucky charm.. that old worn buckeye in my pocket.. it calms my nerves, gives my hand something to do when I’m cooling my heels and can’t smoke, and it was a gift from my late best friend. With it in my pocket, I always have a little bit Skippy along 😉

  • Collette Anderson says: March 13, 2012 at 11:29 am

    My lucky charm is my S&W .38 Special… No worries while hunting turkeys alone!

  • Morgan Ganske says: March 13, 2012 at 11:25 am

    My lucky boots, don’t do anything without them. I swear they help me hit the target every time.

  • Christine says: March 13, 2012 at 11:21 am

    No lucky charm! Actually the less I think about it the better I do!

  • chantal says: March 13, 2012 at 10:59 am

    All the other answers are so good!!, I don’t know that its my lucky shirt but i do like wearing my “Group Therapy” shirt it has a picture of a bulleye with a very tight grouping on it . Maybe more wishful thinking than lucky charm! 😀

  • becky friedrich says: March 13, 2012 at 10:54 am

    I like to have everything arranged just right at the shooting bench , everything has a place and i think (?) I shoot better when I am organized

  • becky friedrich says: March 13, 2012 at 10:54 am

    I like to have everthing arranged just right at the shooting bench , everything has a place and i think (?) I shoot better when I am organized

  • Stacey Breeden says: March 13, 2012 at 10:41 am

    Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!! Yes, in fact I do wear a lucky charm. It happens to be a necklace my son made me when he was younger. It’s a leather cord with a hanging bird on it. When I asked him why he chose a bird he said “because you are like a bird mom. You are always traveling on business”. He said it would keep me safe when I was away. Now, I wear it for every hunt. My lucky bird keeps me safe so that I can fly home to Matt.

  • JoAnna Zurinsky says: March 13, 2012 at 10:37 am

    I am just about as silly and superstitious as anyone when it comes to my rangetime or field-days. I have a whole system worked out…On hunt days, I will put a feather or shell casing from my previous hunt in one of my pockets. This reminds me to be ever thankful for the bounty I received on my last hunt. For shooting days, I have my lucky visor, both for clays, and for the pistol or rifle range. This mortifies my mom. She sees me in it, and says: ‘Oh gracious! You aren’t going out wearing that?!’ Yup, ‘fraid so… the visor is THAT ratty, but has always worked for me!

  • Angela Hermes says: March 13, 2012 at 10:31 am

    I feel lucky when there is a an open shooting bay and I don’t have to wait!
    We go to the range as a family, which is all male, so my lucky charm is my pink hearing protection, I know no one else will use them so they are all mine!

  • Stacey Huston says: March 13, 2012 at 10:26 am

    My husband is my lucky charm. But when he can’t be with me, I have a neck knife I wear when I am out and about on my own.

  • Leslie McWhorter says: March 13, 2012 at 10:09 am

    I have a knife that my dad gave to me on my very first hunting trip when I was 10 years old. His dad made it out of deer antler and stainless and had given it to him and he passed it on to me. I carry whenever I am out in the woods and will not go unless it is in my backpack.

  • Dee says: March 13, 2012 at 10:07 am

    No lucky charm, but a little chant. I always say, “I can do this, just breathe in, breath out” as I pull the trigger. Helps me relax and make a good shot!

  • Andi Schwartz says: March 13, 2012 at 10:07 am

    My lucky charm may be kinda strange to some, but I have a little wooden box with some of my brother’s ashes. I carry it in my pocket. I always wanted Randy to someday go hunting with me. Now, I can take him with me, and take him to places I am fortunate enough to see.
