Not that gun enthusiasts need an extra reason to fan out over social media posts that feature all things firearms, but when those same firearms are in the hands of beautiful women? Yes, please!
That is a genre of consumer that gun companies are targeting with female gun influencers. The gun companies are smart about using these ladies, because by law they can’t advertise directly on social media sites. The partnership is a win-win for everyone involved.
It’s clear that these gorgeous women love their Second Amendment rights, and aren’t afraid to show off their gear. Some of these women are former military veterans, others love to hunt, and many were raised in responsible gun-loving families. Here are three of today’s top female gun influencers that you should follow right now on social media platforms like Instagram.
Kimberly Matte (@kimberlymatte)
With 85,000 Instagram followers, one of her most famous posts is her holding an AR-10 battle rifle. She grew up in Canada, but a few years ago moved to the United States when she married a former military man from Michigan. Her posts are mainly of her in various positions with a variety of weapons, not wearing a whole lot of clothing. Considered a “fitness model,” there are also sponsored posts about protein powders and other fitness related items.
Lauren Young (@misslaurenvictoriaa)
One of Lauren Young’s favorite posts is of her holding a Seekins Precision SP10 6.5 Creedmoor. It’s her own gun. With 192,000 followers on Instagram, she is considered a “top tier” influencers in the firearms category. As an Army veteran, specifically a military police officer, her love of guns comes from her southern heritage and training. She’s gorgeous by the way, with many of her posts featuring heavy artillery, as well as all different types of tactical gear. Currently, she is working on getting into law school and is engaged to Bobby Hill, who photographs many of her Instagram posts.
Liberte Austin (@liberteaustin)
This Texas girl knows her guns. With 202,000 followers, Ms. Austin is easily the most popular on the list. She’s also a director and paralegal for HunterShield, a Texas-based group that protects and defends the rights of sports hunters. Her posts feature all sorts of firearms, but one of her most popular shows her holding a STI International .45 caliber pistol, one of the many guns she owns. That gun she nicknamed “shadow.” The reason she got into purchasing guns was after a traumatic home invasion incident. Now she’s channeled her fear into activism.
There are also gear companies that love to see their products featured in sponsored posts. One of those big companies is Liberty Safe, a gun safe company. Their “presidential safe” is featured prominently in her posts which house her extensive firearm collection. It’s located right in her living room. That safe is worth $4,000 which she got for a sponsored Instagram post from the company. There are some other posts that feature patriotic athletic gear, protein supplements, and even beauty products like teeth whitening kits.
