"You're making it worse!"

So last night I had a charming young lady over to the house. As we walked into my kitchen, I spied a handgun on the counter where I'd set it after work. I don't advertise such things with the locals here so I tried to be all slick as I grabbed a jacket that was lying across the counter and casually flipped it over onto the pistol.

Alas, I'd forgotten that the jacket was covering an AR-15 on the same damned counter.

Not smooth. Not smooth at all. Sigh.

  1. I read this and laughed. The wife
    asked what was so funny, so I showed her your post. She laughed so loud it startled the pups.

    This is exactly the type of crap I expect when hanging out with you! :D

  5. Good move. Test her metal. Tell her you're an international jewel thief.

  6. Well, what was her reaction? It makes all the difference in the world whether or she's a keeper.

  10. Hey Murphy;

    Smoooooth like exlax....it is possible that she doesn't know what an AR15 looks like.....doubtful...but possible. OTOH, you fould out quick if she is worthy of a second date. Or you can say that the AR15 is a crutch.....Hey I am reaching here...

  11. Soooo,
    how did she take it? Did she stay? Was she enthused? What???
    You can't leave the story on a cliffhanger.

  12. She actually saw both of them but didn't get a good look at them due to the lighting in there. I played them off as Halloween costume props. Not sure if she really bought it but it didn't come up again.

  13. One thing I have found out in my years of dating ... is to be upfront with who and what I am...... I like guns, dogs, and old English cars...If they are not a dog person its not going to work out ... guns, the current lady I am with goes with me to gun shows...the range and car shows... only guns I have out in the open are a old Parker D grade 10g over the fireplace and a Lemat hanging on the wall over my desk....also have a few swords hanging on the wall... One thing my Lady has told me is that she feels safe and protected around me....

  14. I'm with John Miller on this. Cut the weak gals out of the herd early. You don't need a woman who chews tobacco or faints at the sight of a firearm. The sweet spot is somewhere in between. Must love dogs!

    I once walked in on my partner fiddling with a new crossbow sight. Which wouldn't have been noteworthy, except his apartment is such that the best way to do so was to crouch in the far corner of the hallway and aim down it. I will say that a big guy, dressed in camo (his work clothes), aiming a crossbow from a dark corner....is surprising. We are still together!

  17. If you have to play that game then she ain't for you. When someone's eyes light up and a discussion ensues - THAT'S the one.
