Launceston United sharp-shooter Dani Gunton will be taking target practice to extremes before Monday's Women's Statewide Cup final.
Hours before leading her team out against Olympia at KGV, the police officer will be taking a shooting class at the Tasmanian Police Academy in Rokeby hoping her accuracy with a firearm then translates to boots.
"It's a nice change and gets me razzed up," said the 23-year-old forward.
"I'll be taking others but I could improve myself a bit too."
As for how she goes at both forms of shooting, Gunton said: "It's hard to say, they are both so different, but I think I do OK."
Leading the line for the WSL newcomers, Gunton has claimed six goals in the league and as many in a three-game cup run which she is hoping to extend against the Warriors on Monday.
"We have the potential to win," she said.
"It's one of our top rivalries in this league and we have not won against them so hopefully we can turn the tables but know we need to play more as a team."
Big wins against Glenorchy and Newtown set up a thrilling semi-final when United came from 2-0 down to win and secure a maiden Women's Cup final appearance.
"After winning the semi we were ecstatic. The smiles on our faces just wouldn't go. We had a ball in the changerooms with the music playing. To have that feeling again would be awesome.
"We went into this season not expecting to get this high so making it into the semis and then sneaking into the final has been amazing."
The former Glen Dhu Primary, Kings Meadows High and Newstead College student, who joined United when Prospect Knights folded, was a key part of the team which remained unbeaten in winning last season's Northern Championship and then took the decision to apply for the statewide league.
"Last year was really exciting and just a ripper season. We had discussions about going into the Super League and everyone was keen to move up. It was on the table but we were kind of going in blind and knew we'd have to start at the bottom and make our way up.
We need to stay focussed but also have fun- Dani Gunton
"We needed extra numbers to field both teams but having a bit more competition meant having to work to keep positions instead of them being guaranteed.
"We were all extremely nervous on that first day but we played a ripper and will need to play like that again on Monday.
"It was a really nerve-wracking thing going into a new season not knowing what to expect but it's been mostly excitement since then and none of us girls have ever played in a final. We just need to stay focussed but also have fun out there."
Having begun their maiden statewide campaign with a 5-1 thrashing of reigning cup holder Clarence and then a first away win at Devonport, United have consolidated with a third-place on the ladder complementing a cup final appearance.
"I'm definitely happy we did it," Gunton added. "It's tough travelling to Hobart so often but the club is loving having us in the league. They have really backed us and want us to do well. It's huge having more involvement in women's football, it's been a long time coming."
