  1. I honestly did not know you were an artist Kirsten. That is awesome. I just recently took up acrylic painting but nothing close to what you do.

  2. You should team up with Jeff of Taofladermaus and offer up a series of gun art. You could offer paintings and he can offer sculptures and at times you can cross over. He can shoot all sorts of crazy shotgun slugs at buckets of paint and you could shoot ARs and .22s at blocks of clay. Or, better yet, a collaboration piece, Taoflaedermaus can shoot a block of clay, and once it dries you could shoot containers of glaze over it to color it; one done, chuck that bad boy into a kiln and you'd have yourself a nice and unique sculpture.

  3. Awesome Kirsten! Look how good you are at drawing.. picture displayed at the Cody Museum! Good at anything you put your mind to! 🙂

  4. I am a 4-H shooter and state comp is in 11 days and your tips are helping me a lot thank you and please keep posting tips they help me a lot maybe something  positions
    it would help me a lot  thanks…

  5. 308 with 2oz paint pots is toooooo much pressure 😀 it blows out the back of the canvas. However 22lr with 1oz paint pots is awesome, especially when you shoot glitter pots over top. My daughter and I had a very creative day at the range.

  6. Hello people. We need to try again! The last petition was unsuccessful by just a few thousand sigs or so. This time let's get all the sigs in to help repeal the full auto ban and support the 2A community. Jump on the team and come in for the big win! Sign the petition, no account registry and do not forget to confirm email. It's that simple and quick. Don't forget to share and tell your freedom loving friends about it, heck, tell the anti gunners to sign it also. We can do this.

  7. Hey Kirsten, you remind me of the main character in the new Horizon game! She looks like you and I wonder if that's what was intended?

  8. Your art is freaking amazeable. I know it's a gun channel but it would be pretty sweet if you made a video showing more of it.

  9. Be very interested in seeing some of your art work. that brief glimpse of a sketch looked very excellent. Seems to be consistent with your amazing eye-hand coordination etc. Just amazing skill at holding and aiming. Heck, even seeing. What is your eyesight? Better than 20/20 i would assume. Keep up the great work breaking the steriotype of a shooter and firearm enthusiast.

  10. All my life I have had a deep interest in art and a deep love for weapons of every kind, specially black powder ones so for me it has been a beautiful surprise to find in this video my two favorite subjects interacting. Thank you Kirsten, for your postings. I love to watch them but also you have created in me a feeling I did not have before and that is envy because I will never be able to shoot as good as you do.
    Make God bless you and happy shooting!

  11. Enjoy your videos a lot! Im so jealous of your gun collection and the fact that you have so many nightforce and other high end optics. It would be amazing to shoot with you

  12. I just recently subscribed to your channel and Love it. You are a breath of fresh air for gun lovers. I am an AR-15 nut, how about you shooting a video about AR's? Maybe show and describe your AR's if you have a few. Thanks for the great videos and you are a great shooter and a beautiful Lady!

  13. get a large box or build a box with the canvas and hang the paints inside mid-air…..that way all the sides get painted …..might take a lot more cups of paint but should look great !

  14. is it possible to get these picture maybe? Its very beautiful and very unique. U do a very good job. Greetings from Germany

  15. You are just wickedly fun to watch! You are an artist and all facets.. And that is why you've just won yourself one more subscriber

  16. Beautiful, pretty awesome, cute, colorful, dorky-ish (me too though),depth, did I say beautiful? Fierce, caring, lethal, I could probably go all day. Do you know what ,"yellow blue bus" means?

  17. Kirsten Joy, você é um show, quero te conhecer um dia , é um sonho meu, espero que se realize algum dia , te adoro, com todo respeito

  18. I was watching Kirsten's video where she shot the foam can and I had the idea of painting using a gun so I searched "painting with guns" on youtube and I find this video that is also by Kirsten. I'm a new subscriber and I really like this channel.

  19. Hey Kristen I'm about to start some more gun videos on my channel and I want to make sure your channel is advertised.
    Love the pumpkin carving. This one is awesome as well

  20. You have quite a number of 22 rifles can you do an episode where you line them up and tell us a little bit about them and what mods you prefer?

  21. Yeah looks like one of hubbles deep space photos ,, i knew it was a stoner flicking paint at a blackboard in his shed all along

  22. She's beautiful. She loves America. She loves guns. She retches at Justin Beiber. She does Monty Python. KJW has ruined me for all other women. And I have never been in the same room with her.

  23. Throw a silencer on the gun and you could make a name for yourself as a painter.
