Since she was 12 years old, Tonya Greenwood knew she loved to shoot.
Shooting became much more than a hobby, and her passion for it remained when she enlisted in the military.
Greenwood is a United States Navy veteran who served as an Aviation Electronics Technician. She was deployed numerous times, including for Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Tomadachi.
In an interview with Task & Purpose, Greenwood describes her favorite guns, biggest pet-peeves when it comes to non-gun people, and her disdain for the term “gun bunny.”
“I think it’s a derogatory phrase that’s been commonly thrown around the industry to describe a woman whose affiliation with the firearm community is more likely for attention instead of actual interest in the sport,” says Greenwood. “It’s often a term used to dumb down the person’s knowledge as well, and it instantly resonates that they do not take the female seriously.”
