In my college days, there was a tiny cutie that really liked me.
the topic of guns came up. She told me she had friends who were police officers and she felt safe around them and didn't mind their guns but didn't think anyone else should have them and she did not like them at all.
I knew it was a deal breaking conflict and left as soon as I could with the least amount of damage.

Edit to remove all non pertinent information! :-p

My first date with my now exwife, we got back to her apartment and her roommate was watching a movie starring Kurt Russell about a guy in the 1960s that that shot some people at a college in texas. As we were sitting watching there was a scene where the local cop was castigating the lgs owner for selling "that much" ammo to the shooter. He rattled off what all this guy had bought, and I said "hell I got about 4 times that much in my closet right now" The future exwife didn't bat an eye, but the roommate went ape****. "What do you need that much ammo for" I replied that I don't really enjoy reloading so when I do, I do alot at one sitting to get it over with. I was shooting trap on average twice a week back then.

I took my future ex to the range one afternoon, I loaded my browning buckmark .22 and sent a target downrange. She shot 10 shots from the browning, while watching her shoot the browning I loaded my 7" longslide .45 acp colt clone. She set down the browning picked up the .45 and kept going like a pro.

For the record I thought then that she was a keeper, but about a year and a half ago she decided I was not.

So we went to the local gun shop, and the dealer, who was not a rocket scientist, started showing her a Raven .25 mouse gun. My wife, who was 5'2, 110 lbs, said, " If I have to shoot somebody, I don't want to just piss him off. I want to shut his a$$ down". She walked out of the shop with a Dan Wesson 744VH - a .44 mag with 3 interchangeable barrels, 4", 6", and 8". She got to be pretty good with it, too. She'd go with me to an indoor range, and inevitably there'd be some Bozo in the lane next to hers who would try to scare her by shooting a .357. She'd wait for him to shoot, peep around the lane divider to get her reaction, then squeeze off a couple of hot .44 mag rounds and watch the clown jump outta his shoes.
Sounds like you got yourself quite a lady there friend congrattulations.

F4U : You are probably referring to Charles Whitman, the Texas Tower Killer of 1966 . He is one of the reasons SWAT teams came into existance .
I've read that he was first engaged by a private citizen with a DCM M-1 Carbine and later by other armed citizens. Once under fire, he was less lethal . The first cop to arrive realized his shotgun was useless at that range and borrowed a rifle from a student , but still had to go get ammo at a gun shop . Other cops supposedly went home and got their hunting rifles . They say people failed to understand trajectory when almost shooting straight up and the reduced arc caused them to shoot over Whitman's head .

My girl test was always show her a gun and see the reaction. Any negative reactions and i knew she was a clod right off the bat and not worth my time.

Oh and yes we did meet online. She was from california i lived in texas. We havent been apart since the day we met face to face. Married fifteen years now. Gave her that desert eagle as wedding present.
My eldest son has the same test and we got to use it last night!

He brought his new girlfriend over for Familly dinner and after my wife had taken our little ones upstairs he says, hey dad... Kaylie is interested in learning to shoot! Can we show her my pistol?

His SS CZ75B was a graduation gift but lives in my safe until his 21st B Day... So I said sure and opened up the safe...

This lovely young lady is not from a "gun" Familly but she didn't freak out... She did say "that's crazy" a couple of times but to her credit... Some FTF members might say the same thing standing in front of my toy closet.

I'll be taking them both up to Gun Club in a fee weeks to see how she's does... She's on probation until then.

A fella's gotta make sure any potential mother to his future grandchildren's not going to get in the way of properly educating the youngins!
