What do you girls think about guys with guns?Page 28 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'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.
