Professional Australian surfer and model Ellie-Jean Coffey elected to spend time firing a semi-automatic rifle while in Texas, as opposed to spending time in the United States on the beaches.
The 22-year-old posted a video on her Instagram account firing off a round from a LaRue Tactical Rifle equipped with a suppressor.
The video has been seen more than 107,000 times as of Wednesday on her Instagram account, which has more than 775,000 followers.
The caption for the post read, “We’re not in Australia anymore, Toto.”
Australia is a country well-known for its strict gun control laws.
Following a mass shooting in 1996 in Port Arthur that resulted in the deaths of 35 people, Australia implemented strict gun control laws that were aligned with the National Firearms Agreement.
