Very well put. I dated a nurse years ago that wasn't anti-gun, knew me well from the ER, and was a casual friend before we started dating. At the time I owned a Monte Carlo with bucket seats. After I picked her up I warned her that if I had to brake suddenly a handgun in a range bag might come sliding out from under her seat. I didn't think anything more about it at the time, but she later admitted wondering what she had gotten into. About a half hour later we were talking about my short career as a LEO, and she later told me that was when she finally relaxed about the gun. A little thought and communication on my part could have made it a better date for her.

I started open carrying back in November when Oklahoma open carry went into effect. I now open carry at church. I edit sermon notes for the pastor before service. He said he had no problems with it. He said he never plans to put a No Gun sticker on the front of the church. I really like my pastor.

Maybe even before you meet. The woman may be a little nervous already a) because she is going on a date and b) because she is meeting someone she met online. I know a couple of women personally who have met men online who were not who they claimed to be in person. It is normal and smart for anyone to be cautious and aware in this sort of first date situation. If she is not used to guns on top of being nervous/cautious to begin with, she could end up being startled or frightened when a little heads-up in advance could have prevented this.
Solid advice, In the dating ritual so many people put on a false front trying to attract the affections of a possible mate. Just be the person you truly are and let nature take it's course. If they are not the right one it will come out soon enough. I think this could cut down on the divorce rate quite a bit. So if you carry be up front about it...this goes for many other things as well.
Don't question my right to own a gun and I won't question your stupidity not to.

You give Peace a chance, we will cover you if it doesn't work out.
