Date night gone wrong

#1

Post by Sparky3131 » Thu Oct 03, 2013 10:19 am

Hello, this is my first post in the forum

I’m a recently divorced 25 year old male, I needed a night out and all my friends had been trying to set me up with a pretty software engineer they knew. I finally gave in and took her to dinner in Galveston. As always I was carrying my Kimber Pro Carry II in my SuperTuck IWB holster at my 5 o'clock with a spare mag at my 8. After a great dinner we decided to go for ice cream before I took her home. As were standing in line she bumped into my 5 with her hand and quickly recognized it for what it was. Instead of quietly asking what was going on, she announced loudly to the whole ice cream shop "You have a gun, why do you have a gun?" I calmly told her that we were leaving and we exited the Ice cream shop. When we got to the truck I explained that I had my CHL and that I was legally carrying a firearm for defense purposes and that she just told everyone and their mom that I was carrying. She was horrified and demanded I take her home, which I did promptly. The whole way to her house she told me all about how no one should be able to carry a gun, and so on. I listened politely, not adding much to the conversation. I just told her that I was exercising my rights as a US citizen and a Texas resident. When we got to the house she just hopped out and started walking to the house and I haven’t heard from her since. (not that I’m worried about it)It was then I noticed the "COEXIST" and Obama/Biden stickers on her Lexus. Guess I should have been more observant. :banghead:

Welcome to the Forum. It will be interesting to see what your friends say about her version of the evening. "rlol"

I guess you have another entry for your "Pre-Date Checklist;" check for bumper stickers and yard signs.

yup!

sooooo, when your friends try to set you up you need to ask, "is she pretty", "what's her personality", "what does she drive" and "what are her bumper stickers" :smilelol5:

That is nothing compared being outed at your elementary school by no other than your 7-yrs old son who threaten the teacher to back down or dad would bring in his pistol to settle accounts :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

:iagree: That was a great first post. I hope she didn't step on any bunny rabbits or flowers on her way into the house.

Hopefully she goes her entire life never needing to defend herself and dies old and happy, her illusions never having been shattered.

No goodbye kiss. Good thing you didn't have to buy her the ice cream.

Welcome to the forum!

I was lucky enough to be found by a wonderful lady who not only 'puts up' with me carrying daily - she's a CHL holder, who carries daily as well!
Your number one option for personal security is a lifelong commitment to avoidance, deterrence, and de-escalation.
When those fail, aim for center mass.
