I think there’s a well-known book title that plays with this very grammatical problem. Is it grammatical? It’s a homonym anyway, I know that much. So yes, I shoot. And yes, I do sometimes get funny looks when using this verb.
I’ve also decided that in this modern climate it’s best to be fairly cautious when using the verb in public places such as monuments and other places which are patrolled by overly sensitive security officials, especially as I have a tendency to bellow instructions to my fellow photographer to go and shoot such and such. Public photographing is not always welcomed anyway anymore; never mind making such a wee faux pas whilst at it.
It’s also quite good fun when you add a person’s name to the end of the phrase. That one does make me smile (and is sometimes mixed with a shot of evil satisfaction). And definitely earns funny looks. So yes, I shoot. What about you? What or who do you shoot?
