Last week, Gear Patriot published a post on the 101 Twitter Accounts Every Gun Lover Should Follow. I was pleased to see I made number 55, but also a little let down to find that he had only listed 88.
So, I decided to offer here the original 88, plus 32 more. These are accounts I follow, and I find consistently tweet about shooting, even if they also tweet about other things from time to time. I have even had the good fortune to meet some of these folks, and those are underlined.
DISCLAIMER and up-front apology: To my Twitter friends, if I left you off my list, please don't be offended. I tried to list all the accounts that consistently tweet about shooting, that I thought every shooter would like. If I left out someone who should be there, please let me know in the comments, or, on Twitter at @FillYerHands.
ALSO: Some of the Twitter accounts are of bloggers, but I have left off the addresses of the blogs they write, to save time and space. However, if you go to the Twitter bio, they will have their blog link there.
