What do you girls think about guys with guns?Page 26 of 28    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28)

I cannot see any reason why anyone needs to have a handgun in their home or on their person


Single woman that lives in the boonies.
I want them for protection .....noone is gonna hear me scream out here!
I want them for pesky critters.
I want them to target shoot....because I like to!
I want them to hunt rabbit and squirrel because you haven't lived till you've had my squirrel gravy!!

And I guarantee you, even though I don't live in the south, some freak breaks into my home in the middle of the night......I will shoot first and ask questions later.

I went on two dates with a woman whose ex-husband was an avid hunter. After the second date I saw the inside of her home. On the walls, every 5 feet, was the head of some animal -- all sizes -- North American wildlife - no lions or tigers, but there may have been a bear or a cougar. There was rabbits and birds and jackalope perhaps an old dog stuffed and sitting by the fireplace as a hat rack.

And the carpets were...well...y'know, there were no carpets, only animal skins. And the furniture was all leather with fur accent pillows. And the ceiling had been accented with wood beams to get that "mountain lodge" look.

I didn't see the bedroom or garage...I suppose there would be 10 freezers full of bigfoot burgers and the like....

....nah, it didn't work out. Funny thing is she said she absolutely HATED all that animal stuff on the walls. I asked how long the ex-hubby was EX, and she said over a year. I asked her why she didn't take down all those animal heads on the very first day?

I'm guessing either I exposed her in a lie (maybe she killed all the trophies?) or mayhaps she felt dumb at still staring at stuff she hated when she could have taken it down.

I dunno --- never saw her again. I can only assume the ex-hubby came back to mount her.

This thread is a great example of how attitudes about many things, guns included, differ around our country. Easterners tend to be absolutely shocked at how matter of fact folks in various other parts of the US. treat firearms. My Mom has DOZENS of guns and is constantly browbeating me about getting a license so the state won't take them when she passes. I've seen a gal here on the forums (a popular poster too!)in her profile pic posing with a rather sizable .44 long barrel revolver; no one has even mentioned it to my knowledge!! perhaps people are assuming it's a prop, or a joke.(the pistol is REAL).
Go to places like the pacific N.W. midwest, southwest; folks(men and women) walking around fully armed is just a fact of life.

My boyfriend is an ex-marine and he has guns.

There is a difference, though, between people (not just men) who own guns and those whose lives are possessed by guns. It is the same type of difference between a balanced person and a obsessive fanatic.

misinformed is putting it mildly it doesn't take a gun to make a nutball.

it's so silly it's not even worth arguing constructively.

so much for common sense.

to each their own guns or no guns.......

^^^ you are committing a fallacy of causation. the relevant info about mcveigh was that he's a murderous psychopath. many murderous psychopaths have an interest in guns, but having an interest in guns does not turn anyone into a murderous psychopath.

^^^^^Very well said--right on the mark. BTW, did you get that out of Aristotle's list of logical fallacies? I saw a copy one time, and he described ones I'd never ever seen or thought of.

Lots of people are interested in guns for target shooting. I'm not a very good shot, but it's fun anyway. Very cheap, too, if you stick to .22's.

~OT~ Oddly, the last three of the last 4 men I've dated were all packers. Two police officers and one concealed weapons permit instructor. I didn't think much about it with any of them. It just was what it was ~ their norm. JMO

^^^^ Most don't make an issue of it... I don't pack but am in process if getting a CCW. My bouncer job had become high profile in the last few months, with me being the face telling gang bangers and bikers they're not welcomed. It's just smart for me to make sure I make it home safely in case anyone decides to wait for me... which has happened, fortunately they weren't packing....yet!

Ive never understood the whole gun thing myself, living in Canada, but then Ive heard some of the gun owners reasons why they are packing, I guess to them is better to be judged by 12 vs carried by 6 if something were to happen.

I've never understood the whole gun thing either. I know some people need them
for their jobs and I know some people hunt and like to target shoot, I've just never
been one of those people.

I've also never felt threatened enough or worried about my safety to want to carry
a gun, but I'm sure there are people who think that's naive. Not sure I'd like it if the
day were to come when we all have to carry guns to feel safe; visions of the wild wild
west come to mind.

To each their own. I don't mind people owning guns, I think they're a lot like penises and religion. It's okei to have one, it's okei to be proud of it, just don't whip it out in
public and wave it around and don't try to push it in my face.

Law enforcement carry concealed weapons, and I think absolutely nothing of them.

Men carrying guns in general, huummm.....if it's just some guy carrying a gun in his home either just because, or for self defense purposes....I'm not sure how I'd feel about that.

Men that are hunters carry guns either way, and I don't seem to mind that.

Shall I stop beating around the bush now? I don't mind men with guns just as long as the weapon is registered, and they don't plan to use it on me.

I would not post a picture of myself with a gun on a dating website if I owned one, which I don't .. I just doubt it is a good way to attract women.

In actuality however, governments and military ops have killed more people than anyone ever has or will. Some people will argue religion, but the church is not out there trying to take people's rights to own a gun away on the one hand and killing people on the other.

Here is a podcast episode by some liberal college students on Oklahoma City bombing. There is a great deal of evidence that it was a false flag operation. Skip over the intro which may ramble on a good deal:

Not big on seeing them in a profile pic but overall guns don't bother me. Grew up around them. Have my own .22 and .357

I dont judge a woman on how much makeup,jewelry or pairs of shoes she owns. I sure as **** am not going to let one judge me on how I spend my hard money.

Having an interest in guns is a very American thing and, in the vast majority of cases that's not a problem........ there's nothing wrong with having a hobby after all.

Being British I have been brought up in a different culture where we view guns with suspicion and anyone having an intense interest leading to an obsession would ring very loud alarm bells with me.


Maybe that's why during the last century your Government was begging ours to send every gun they could to arm everyone left there, not off fighting the war. Our Government collected hunting rifles, handguns, and shotguns from the general public, who donated them so Y'all had a way to defend yourselves if the invasion happened.

Then again we sent our young men to fight and die for your people and what refrain is still remembered here from Y'all? That they were "Over payed, over sexed, and over here". Maybe we should have stayed on our side of the pond and let Y'all deal with it yourselves. Twice we've had to send our young men over there to protect you and Europe and still Y'all say how you're more civilized than we are. What World Wide War was started by us Yanks? NONE! If Y'all are so civilized why are we the ones that always have to save you?

Major turn off for me.......one of my red flags.............for what ever reason they are used
I think hunting is medieval and barbaric ............like to think I have evolved more than that
Some call hunting a sport.............I call it animal cruelty

Unless you're a Vegan, then you just like someone else to kill your meat for you. Those steaks at Safeway didn't grow on a Steak tree.

Even if you are a Vegan, unless someone controls the wild pig problem then where is your food going to come from? A pack of wild pigs can destroy a field of crops in one night.

Man with a gun on a dating site = no contact

I am not a fan of guns and cannot see why anyone would want one other than if on a farm where they are an essential tool.

Have I ever shot a gun. YES. I was brought up in the country and it was considered part of general education.
The same as learning how to drive a car, tractor and motor bike before you went to high school.

Thankfully we in Australia do not have anywhere near as many people in cities with guns as there are in the USA.


Re ^^^^^
" Over payed, over sexed, and over here" is still quoted by the older generation.
Certainly my dad uses that term in almost any WWII discussion.

For me it depends on what type of gun and the context of the picture. I'm not into the whole gang/gangster thing.

However, being a country girl, I do find hunting sexy. I saw a picture of a guy practice shooting with a hunting rifle on here and loved it! Too bad I'm too much of a chicken to message him haha

Different strokes for different folks I guess. The point of these pictures is probably to find a girl who has similar interests/hobbies or is okay with the whole gun thing. If it is something that is important to the guy or a part of his life I see no problem including these pictures. To me, its no different than having pictures with pets.
