    IMO, most people do not know how to process the gun carry thing instantly. I think she needs to judge you by your behavoir before she knows so that she can see that your carrying was not an issue. I would not bring it up for at least five dates unless she asks.

    You might be real carefull to not let her find out on her own early, she may consider it withholding important information.

At what point would you tell the person your dating you carry? I mean, obviously you don't introduce yourself and say "Hi, im ---, i carry". But on the other end if you wait for to long it could cause some issues too. So, this is more of a conversation question, but at what point do you/have you/would you tell your person your seeing you carry?

    Thanks!

    IMHO, If you need to ask strangers this you are still to young to be dating. :)

    Looks like I'm a little late here, but... The first "date" I ever took my girlfriend to was a friends property where we shot clays, pistols, rifles, and exploding tannerite. It was a blast.

    Our first "dinner" date was sushi.

    She's a keeper.

    DV8R,
    I am just asking opinions and wanted to create this as a conversation piece also. I know how relationships work :P. I just was curious because like many said, if you are dating for a month or 2 and than tell her I could see her getting uncomfortable because you were carrying a weapon without her knowing. But than again, on the first or second date is to soon. I appreciate all the comments though. It has been fun reading them!

    Ask her if she ever shot a gun before ? If she says no, take her to the range. Once at the range she'll find out ! if she likes to shoot she won't have a problem with you carring. Make a date out of it. My ex-wife, when we were dating and I first turned 21, I told her I want to get a gun. She was afraid at first, but after trying it and learning about gun safety, she liked it. In fact her favorite to shoot was a S&W model 66, 4 inch BBL 357 Magnum ! Could never get her to like the 44 Mag though ! With my second wife it was the same. She was deathly afraid of them. Well after educating her and letting her handle various guns, I finally got her to shoot a .380 ! She now wants a gun but isn't sure exactly what kind ? Im trying to get her to go with a 9mm like a Walther PPS or Taurus Slim, not too small, not to big.
    Maybe even a k-frame snubby or Ruger SP-101 ? She has corpal tunnel so the 357 is out of the question ! Women are easier to sway than men with certain things . Both womens attitude was neutral towrd guns. They weren't against them, they just didn't like them for themselves. With some teaching and making learning and shooting fun {Which it is} they both became believers !

    Lawfully carrying a concealed handgun is neither a crime, not a sin. Why do so many feel so compelled to confess anyway?
