South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley called her time shooting at a local gun manufacturer 'a good stress reliever'.

The revelation comes in a video on YouTube in which the Republican is seen spending time at the range and shooting some steam that has gone viral.

According to the New York Daily News, Haley stopped by FN Manufacturing, a gun producer in Columbia, South Carolina, last week to celebrate the business, and her office filmed her the tour and thousands of viewers tuned in.

"I did it in heels," Haley bragged about handling an automatic weapon," nikkihaley @ YouTube

She called the company a source of pride for South Carolina since it supplies arms to the U.S. military.

According to the report, she said that for her this was particularly personal because they manufacture some of the weapons which Michael is using now in Afghanistan, referencing her husband, a member of the National Guard, who was deployed in January.

"You ROCK lady!!!" one Haley fan commented on the governor's Facebook posting of the footage," nikkihaley @ YouTube

She said she had a good time shooting several of the weapons produced by FN, which include the M4, M240, M249, the report added. (ANI)
