Do Women Automatically Get More Attractive If They Know How To Use A Gun?

One of the most important questions I often ponder is whether or not knowing how to use a gun automatically makes a woman more attractive.

I contend that it does indeed raise a woman’s level of attractiveness. In fact, I’ve often argued it’s worth two extra points on a 10 point scale.

A seven instantly gets bumped up to a nine the moment she picks up an AR-15, racks a round and hits the bullseye.

It’s hard for me to explain, but there’s just something great about a woman who knows her way around a firearm. And before people start accusing me of sexism, I honestly love women who can outshoot me. It forces me to raise my game and bring my skills to the next level.

I once watched a female friend of mine strip an AR-15 in a matter seconds, and she did it with the smoothness of a trained operator. I think it’s the closest I’ve been to falling in love.

If I’m married and somebody breaks into my house, I want my wife to be able to give me covering fire as I move into position to take out the assailant. After all, what is love if it’s not the ability to provide covering fire?

I’m also notorious for never rating a woman a perfect ten. My logic for this is pretty simple. The moment you rate anybody a ten, it eliminates the possibility of somebody better existing. There are a few 9.5s out there. Not any tens. However, I’d make an exception to this rule if we add in the two point bump for firearm knowledge.

Feel free to sound off in the comments with your thoughts or shoot me a tweet. As of right now, I’m firmly in the camp that believes women who know how to use weapons are simply more attractive.
