Since moving back to Texas in 2017, I have been trying to acclimate to the Texan lifestyle—at the top of the “How to be a TRUE Texan” list is gun-shooting. After all, Texas is a state that has a town named Cut and Shoot, just north of Houston. My friend, Amanda, helped me with the cutting part by buying my first pocketknife; I walked around for weeks looking for reasons to use it. Recently, my friend Leatha introduced me to a few of her guns. Yes, she introduced me—each one has a name.
