WHAT'S IN YOUR SCOPE?



There’s just something sexy…
About seeing a guy in fatigues…
With an automatic rifle…
In Wal-Mart.
OK, OK….
Perhaps being attracted …
To an assault weapon is over the top…
But there really were two Mexican marines…
With M16’s slung across their shoulders…
In line ahead of me at Wal-Mart...
And they looked hot.
What can I say?
Am I bad?
And what about you?
When it comes to the opposite (or same) sex…
What pulls your trigger?
And do any of your novels include weapons?
What kind?
Any of them sexy?

P.S. There’s a marine base close to where I live.
      They patrol the waters. Makes me feel safe.

My books are about space battles so there are weapons galore!
I'm a military brat so used to seeing people in fatigues. Although not with M16's in WalMart.
And my wife could dress in just about anything and be sexy.

I don't do much with guns, but my characters are often extremely handy with a knife. Also, their bare hands.

I always find it startling when I see anyone sporting an automatic weapon in public (like at foreign airports and such)! If it was in a Wal-Mart? Yipes. What were they purchasing?

They were buying takeout lunch and snacks. No bullets.

Most of the AF guys I see are dressed in baggy fatigues. Not all that sexy.

Sleeveless t-shirts (not tank tops) do it for me.

As in everyday clothing, I do like seeing women dress like ladies. T-shirts and jeans look fine, but people always trade comfort for looks.

I love arms--well not the weapons that hurt. The muscular ones that hang from the shoulders.

LOL!! I do like a guy in uniform for some reason. Doesn't matter the uniform. :)

Hmmm. I think Clint could have used any weapon on the planet and my pacifistic tendencies usually flew out the window.
I actually have the word gun and revolver in my manuscript but the bad guy is pointing it and he's stinky and gross.

I know what you mean, Leigh! There's something about that -- just saw similar men patrolling the train station in Marseilles. I feel conflicted about being attracted to that, which just makes it more attractive!?!!
