Today, my boyfriend of 2 months broke up with me after finding out that I reload my own shotgun shells and I shoot competitively. His reasoning? He didn't want to date a "cheap and dangerous woman." Seriously? FML
kiss98367 tells us more :
Haha, thanks for the support everyone. To add to my FML story, my ex knew by our third date that I go shooting. I found out from our mutual friend that he didn't think I was "cheap and dangerous" until his ex before me (at a party where I was unable to attend) started talking trash when she overheard him telling a couple of buddies that I shoot targets and reload my own shells. I'm 22, I have a full time job, and I have my own 2 bd apartment and a truck payment (among other bills). If I can save a little money, I will. Traveling for competitions and entry fees can get expensive. The thing that makes me laugh is his ex is my age, works about 15 hours a week, and has all her bills paid by her parents (she doesn't go to school or anything either). She uses the cash she earns to buy expensive clothing and what not (which according to her, I could "never afford"). Sorry I have different priorities in my life? Lol. As an update, two of my ex's friends (and yes, this includes his best friend) have asked me out since our breakup. My ex also sent a txt to me this morning saying that he messed up. I guess his friends talked some sense in to him. It's too late though. Goes to show that you probably shouldn't take advice from a jealous ex girlfriend. Just saying.

Or maybe he's one of those people who want to break up for something, but they give their reasoning as the first stupid thing that comes up instead.

Even though he's against firearms, it is still weird to break up simply because of that! I could understand if he wouldn't commit to her in the first place (if he'd known) but to break up afterwards just seem harsh!

Basically, instead of buying new ones from the range or store, OP takes the empty casings, refills them with new primer and buckshot and basically makes her own ammo.

Yeah, it's not saying she reloads her shells into her shotgun, but instead literally reloading the shells with new gunpowder and a primer. I do the same, but with rounds for a glock. It's much more cost effective.

Good thing you didn't waste any more of your life with that jerk! And your hobby seems awesome and badass I'm sure guys would kill to have a kick ass girl with great aim! Hope you find the RIGHT guy soon!

That sucks OP. People constantly put me down for liking learning about and using firearms, and because I'm in the UK it's a ridiculously difficult hobby to take part in anyway. Screw it, the guy was probably an asshole anyway.

“Perhaps you are thinking: 'But a tank costs several million dollars, not including floor mats. I don't have that kind of money.'
Don't be silly. You're a consumer, right? You have credit cards, right?
Perhaps you are thinking: 'Yes, but how am I going to pay the credit-card company?'
