Last Saturday, March 31, Cat went to check out a different kind of accessory — one that fires fifty-caliber bullets. You see, while she loves fashion and frippery, she also writes about homelessness, zoning, land-use and, yes, sometimes even guns. So when theRocky Mountain Fifty Caliber Shooting Association
called and offered to have her up to its machine-gun shoot just south of Fort Morgan, she agreed.
You see, Cat is a Blue State island in the middle of a Red State family, and her father and brother have often fired these weapons of mass destruction (just check out the slideshow). So Cat decided it was time to fire a few big guns for herself.

Tomorrow we return to our regular diet of shoes, clothes and style news.
Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
