The Rush

Story Rush, a kindergarten teacher from Greenwood, Arkansas, fires an M1919 Browning .30 caliber machine gun on the first night of OFASTS. "It is such an adrenaline rush," she explained with after stepping back from the weapon. She had traveled to OFASTS for the first time with her husband and 8-year-old son. "I grew up hunting with my dad, so guns are nothing unusual for me," she said. She expressed an interest in owning a fully automatic weapon at some point in the future.
