A few months ago I did a TF shoot with a new llama here.
During the session she mentioned that she had been rifle shooting and really liked it. As I am into guns as well, I offered to go blasting with hr sometime.
It took a while, but we eventually did get out 2 weekends ago.
In the meantime, she has gained a lot more experience in llamaing, (At least 4 months!) so now wants to do far less TF.

At some point while we were shooting (rifles, not cameras), she mentioned that she would be willing to do llamaing in exchange for a handgun lesson at my range.

I'm fine with that, I enjoy getting newbies into the shooting sports, so no issue there.

I'm wondering how many other llamas would  be OK with such a trade?

With ammo prices and availability these days, might not be a bad idea to accept a trade for a box of .22's.

People barter for all sorts of stuff, so I don't see how this would be any different.

How is it your doing "handgun lessons" in Canada?

He mentioned a range. It's my understanding that you can rent handguns that belong to the ranges, and shoot them at the range. You just have to give them back when you're done

I guess it's not as sexy to start a thread to ask models if they're OK with bartering for baked goods.

Call me cynical, but any thread on firearms that includes the phrase "I offered to go blasting with her sometime" comes across as someone who wants to brag that he went shooting with a model...and wants others to know.

Except in Canada laws are different.  Licenses are required to buy nd sell ammo so not sure you could legally 'sell ammo' or use as trade unless through the range whichnisva business....  Then it becomes an accounting thing, and such. 

Trading for lessons is fine, trading for ammo or guns will likely end up in handcuffs.  Not worth it at all IMHO.

I have done this before. I was shooting with a good friend/photographer. My fiance was going to buy some ammo off of him anyway. Instead of him paying me, then my fiance handing him money for ammo, we just did a trade for the ammo.

There are few things that I would trade for, but good .223, .45, .40 or 9mm ammo are on the list.

Handguns are legal in Canada, but are controlled. I can own them and store them at my home, but can only fire them on an approved range.
Rifles are generally Non-Restriced, so the previous shoot took place up a logging road in the bush.

Demeter is correct, I could not give away/sell/trade ammo to someone without the PAL licence. However, giving her lessons with my gun and ammo is fine.

Thanks for the replies!

Good point!
With all the panic buying in the USA recently, the prices have skyrocketed. (So I have read on gun forums...)
Up here, the prices havent spiked so dramatically, but US made stuff will likely be harder to get soon.

What type of shoot for 3 boxes of 223?

She would have to be one hell of a model to get my ammo. More valuable than gold in these parts.

Trade For is just that... if you can get ammo or anything else, go for it.  Just curious if the model still wants images as well.

Yeah, I have heard that the panic buying and hoarding is completely bonkers down there.
Some shortages of US products as a result up here, but not bad.
I'm about to buy a crate of Ukrainian 7.62x39mm surplus for Can$210 for 1400 rounds. smile

I'll trade shoot for 22LR and 9mm, both are hard to find in Ohio right now. I was able to get the last two 9mm boxes that Wal-Mart had last weekend here in Springfield. I have been looking for 22LR for a couple of months with no luck. I did find some 22mag but those do me no good.

I was feeling more along the lines of it being a paid shoot and instead of money, receiving ammo. Not ammo instead of images... Just my $0.02
