    So, I have this date tomorrow with this girl I met in the fifth grade and havn't seen in about 10 years. Would it be akward if I open carried or should I conceal?

    Do you know her thoughts on firearms? Might be best to learn that first. Especially if you are thinking you might already want a second date.

    For a first date, I'd carry concealed until you know she's comfortable with it.

    if you conceal and don't tell her, and end up going to a bar, might be an awkward moment when you lock it in the glove box

    Don't waste to much time, just get to the point as soon as you can about her view's on 2A rights, there are 1,000's of women to choose from, better to find out real soon then to discover after the wedding she hates gun's

    On a FIRST date...

    You have your cards stacked up against you on a first date. First impressions and all that. It's tough dating period. You really want to give her a reason to not have a second?

    There are very few woman that are pro gun - even if you do find one, no one wants to have a first date and have people staring at them. How about being confronted with some anti - not good for a first date to have them watch you get into an argument with someone else.

    It's like meeting someone for the first time and getting the hard line 15-30 minute political speech on abortion or the seperation of church and state. Not really what a first date is meant for.

    Just my $0.02 but it's your first date, not mine.

    LOL I've taken girls shooting on second dates but never on a first date. I find that most women like guns but have just never shot them before and the ones that hate guns generally ignore me or go out of there way to let me know that I'm a horrible person and guns kill people.

    Why not call her up and ask her?

    ive had mixed results with females and firearms... i have a problem where i cant shut my noise hole when it comes to guns. my best results have been from girls who are from out of state, preferably from somewhere in the south. (girls from WA tend to hate guns for unkown reasons)

    CCW on the first date and try not to discuss firearms untell your 2nd or 3rd date. (im unable to do this, but i would recomend it)

    I SECOND THIS. CALL AND ASK HER!

    Get the issue on the table, so to speak.

    As a female Second Amendment Advocate, I would be impressed. But there aren't many of us out here.

    Personally, as a single woman, if a Man strikes up a conversation with me one of the first questions they usually ask is what my interests/hobbies are. I ALWAYS tell them first and foremost that I'm a Second Amendment Advocate and that I spend a lot of my time working to protect our Bill Of Rights. If they look at me*funny*, or like I've just spat on their shoe, then the conversation is over.

    Same goes if they ask me about my political beliefs and other issues that are high on my list.

    The good part is that she knows you from your past. If you call and ask her, chances are you won't scare her away.

    Good Luck, and let us know how it goes!

    ???

    wow. What exactly did your "texts and calls" entail?


    Well, the good part is that you didn't waste your money, time and effort taking her out for a nice evening. wipe your brow and say "whew!", then go out and find yourself a nice girl at a shooting range or gun shop!

    Lol well I told her to meet me inside when I got to the theater then asked her if she was on her way and after she was about 25 mins late I said maybe we can do this some other time. Then I went to get my money back for the tickets then went holster shopping. I picked up a really nice holster for 30 bucks I didn't fly her in from Vermont she was coming up here to live with her grandparents.

    Don't give up Alex. Just remember that most girls (and most prospective employers these days) will do a quick google search on you before meeting or prior to deciding to interview you for a position. I've had employee candidates that looked just great on paper but after a quick search I wouldn't want them as part of my company.
