    Default How do I tell a target I carry a gun?

    I live in the Midwest, and regularly conceal carry a firearm for self-defense. I'm NOT interested in a debate on carrying guns here.

    I am interested in how to broach the subject with a target without scaring her off. I've done it once or twice before with online dating, after waiting to get to know them through text/email a little first, but I've never done it with a girl I met in-person first.

    Thoughts?

    I don't think it's abnormal to carry a firearm. As soon you meet a girl, I wouldn't mention it, it might come of weird or creepy. I would continue to run game and not mention it. After you've built comfort with her and you've hanged out a couple of times, then maybe invite her to a gun range and take it from there...

    Don't immediately assume she'll be off put by your concealing a fire arm. I get the sense that your worried they won't want to be near you because your straped. Thus, you think you need to tell them in an interesting way so they're not spooked.

    You have a concealed weapons permit (I'm assuming), all your credentials are there, and the law says you can carry one. This shouldn't be anything on your mind. Your only going to be guilty of hiding something, if your trying to hide something. You don't have to tell her that you have hair on your testicles, so why do you need to tell her you have a gun. Let her find out on her own. You carry a weapon, and you have a bushy ball sack

    Haha. This made me laugh. Thanks! And yes I have all the proper permits and whatnot, though I try to keep myself trimmed up nicely too. lol.

    Not really trying to hide it though. I carry openly when the situation allows for it. I just worry about scaring away a girl I'm otherwise interested in.

    I agree with bballking on this one. I think the best course of action for you would be to just not bring it up at all. If the conversation goes towards that then sure maybe say something like "In this crazy world we live in I don't feel safe if I don't have protection." just don't bring up the subject out of no where.

    I'm NOT interested in a debate on carrying guns here.
    You're gonna go out there and pick up girls carrying a firearm? For self-defense? And you're asking us to how to smooth things out, without debating wether or not to bring a gun in the first place?!

    I'm gonna go and assume I'm well outside your firing range and completely ignore your indication of interest (wait... that came out wrong ;-> ). If you really think your life is so dangerous that you need to carry a gun for self defense, you're either well aware of the fact that you have no right to put women in the jeopardy of being around you, or you're flat wrong.

    And if you need a gun in your daily life, also, you apparently have bigger problems than getting girls, so fix that shit. Seriously.

    I might be a pussy in your eyes, I live in a relatively "safe nation" (absolutely no guns allowed anywhere), and think of that what you want. I would want you to know though, that I would stay wide away from people with guns. Heck, I'd stay away from bars if I knew people in there were carrying knives. Weapons and having fun are absolutely mutually exclusive in my view. If you're worried it scares girls, I'd say: Rightly so.

    If you want to carry a gun, go and do it. Just don't go out and try to pick up girls carrying a gun. I hope you understand that I don't just try to turn this into a gun debate. I'm really trying to say that I think you're asking the wrong question, or rather... asking for the wrong answer.
