Default Range alone?

Been thinking about hitting the range today since its one of the few nice days we'll have for a while in my area. Only my main issue here is my rifle is kept at my girls place since do to legal reason they can't be kept in my house.

The reason that's an issue is that she's got school today and another course that runs until 8:00ish in the evening. I know someone is saying "well just ask her for the key and lock up when you leave, what's the big deal?" well here it is.....we both live with our parents and only her mom knows about the rifles being there. Stupid, right?

Her mom I don't have an issues with, her dad how ever doesn't seem to like me and I'd have to have them back in her room by 4:00pm since that's usually when he gets home. The problem is, how the crap do I go about asking to get the rifles with out feeling like a dink?

Pops already doesn't like you, and you're doing stuff behind his back in his house? Ha...WOW! Big stones there bro!

I'm not judging ya, but I'm not gonna give any suggestions here either, lest it may turn sour for ya.

Good luck Kaido!!

I'd say you either call the mother and work it out with her or schedule another time for a day at the range.

Haha well I already told the mom that I know he doesn't like me, but even she thinks it's because I'm dating his "baby girl" and no other reason besides that. But if we get busted my first words are going to be "I totally thought your wife told you" and then I'd be off and running. Haha

I was thinking about that, but I have a really weird way of thinking and I don't want my girl taking it as "HA!! I'm at the range and you can't come.....sucker" even though I know she won't. But I might check things out and see how it goes.

My only main issue is that their kept in my girls room and I'm not sure if she locker her door at all.

......that's a no go. I've told my girl so many times that it would make life so much easier if she let him know. I know he can't have an issue with firearms and if he does, it can't be that big because he's military. He also can't have an issue with her and firearms since she was on the rifle team in cadets and he was the RSO. Was just air rifles, but still a "firearm" of sorts.

Invite the dad to go shooting with you. I can show him you are responsible and able to take care of and protect his daughter. And let him outshoot you. But give him competition and let him win. Unless he really sucks.

Based on the advice you seek from this forum, it seems like you're not quite ready for the responsibility that goes along with firearms ownership.
