    The reason she doesn't like it is because I dress in a nice, button-up shirt and jeans while OCing and she says now she has to get "all dressed up to look as good as I do just to go to the store" She's only half kidding, haha.

    Anyone have similar complaints?

    My fiance doesn't have a philosophical problem with OC, but I can tell she's uncomfortable about it when I OC when we're out together. I hope she'll get used to it.
    I also try to look neat and clean cut when I OC.

    Just tell her "Honey, I could be dressed in a Tuxedo and nobody would notice with you beside me!" She will ease up on that "to look as good as you" business.

    or

    How about you find some nice, but not too dressy polo shirts, or maybe some nice tee shirts?

    I dunno what my wife thinks, never asked her. I OC, I CC... she just accepts it, I guess. She shoots also.

    She thinks it's weird that I'm a Buddhist Pacifistic former LEO who OC's

    My girl friend has little experience with firearms. I took her to the range a couple weeks ago and she had her first experience. She had a good time but the world of guns is still unkown to her. So she is afraid. I just took the gun apart so she could see it in pieces. Then I slowly put it back together for her so she could understand it a bit better. I explained the safeties on it etc... We rented a Ruger Mark III Hunter .22 Pistol for her to shoot. Then I aided her in shooting my XD .40. The power scared the hell out of her but she agreed it was a good experience. She is the classic example of an average gun fearing citizen. She just has an irrational fear of the unknown.

    A few months ago, my wife and I visited an old friend of hers. We were discussing something over dinner and the topic of guns came up, and this girlfriend of hers (40ish), says she owns 10-12 guns, is a better marksman than her Marine husband (sitting next to her), and we had a grand ole' time discussing the subject. The funny part is that my wife, who had known this lady for 20+ years, never knew that little fact about her friend.

    My girlfriend carries with me half the time. The other half of the time she doesn't give two ***** about what I'm doing anyway.

    My GF isn't really impressed with guns...at least not the ones civilians canown in CA.

    In her home country her dad was a chief of police, and so shes pretty much completely desensitized to full auto weapons and grenades and stuff...

    *showing my ar-15 to S.O*

    "Why won't the magazine drop?"

    "well theres a 'bullet button' for ca law"

    "thats retarded. *walks away*"



    Pretty much she grew up around much more formidable arsenals than we can claim, so its kind of like 'meh' to her, which makes me go :\. But shes fine with OC, very supportive.

    Don't get me wrong...she actually likes the idea of open carry and firearms in general. She's always nagging me to go shooting for study breaks

    This conversation sparked this thread.

    Gf - "Dude, don't bring your gun to Ralph's"
    Me - "Why the hell not?"
    Gf - "Because you dress nice when you OC and I don't feel like getting dressed"
    Me - *blank stare*
    Gf - "Ok, give me five minutes"

    I just thought it was kind of funny

    If she can "get ready" in 5 minutes, she is a keeper.

    My wife of twenty years isn't completely comfortable with me OCing all the time. (Started last November) we used to go shooting often (she has a .380) when we were first married, but she hasn't shot her gun for quite some time.
    So she's not "afraid" of guns, she just doesn't like the fact that it "might" bring us extra attention. She's fairly tolerant but will occasionally ask me not to carry if we're going somewhere together.
    We had one big blow out when she went to dinner with my parents and brother and I was working. They ended up going later than expected so called me and told me to meet them at the restaurant. No prob.
    I was almost there and she texted me and asked that I not carry my gun because there were police eating there.
    I texted back and said my gun goes where I go. She insisted, so I said I wasn't coming. Big mistake. She was pissed. I stood my ground and didn't go but I regretted it. She laid the guilt trip on me. "Your gun is more important... Blah blah blah". Yikes.

    There are some situations where discretion is the better part of valor.

    I find these situations have become more frequent when the fairer sex is involved.

    LUCC,when such things are necessary.

    After 10 years of marriage, my wife is STILL strongly opposed to me having a girlfriend. However, she's come to be at peace with me carrying a firearm.

    (Though I did get a big "I told you so" when I had to go home and tell her about spending an hour in Turlock PD custody back in July '08... and the whole "Sacramento Regional Terrorist Threat Assessment Unit" memo regarding me and the OC movement bothered her a bit... now that I think about it she's handled all this pretty well.)

    People in general (not just women) will not be afraid of the gun. They won't be afraid of the criminal element. What they will have weighing on their mind is being next to you when the show up.
