When she thinks she is getting good and cocky tell her that is what she looks like when she flashes a wad of money or a winning lotto ticket.
    That actually seems like a good idea. If she has any reasonable intelligence at all, she will quickly learn the sort of behavior that screams "target" by spending a little time thinking like a BG.

    Do what is best for you and do not let emotions get in the way of making wrong decision. LOVE can be the greatest gift we are given but remember it can also get you killed.

    You have the right to drive, free speech and the right to carry a firearm. It is not right to take a life due to someone else's negligence. Apparently she has seen too many movies and cannot see the reality of what happens to friends and family from both sides of a gun.
    In the end you need to be safe and if dumping her is the only way than so be it. If you LOVE her that much than stop carrying your firearm when you are with her until she understands that you have a responsibility for carrying a firearm.

    Regardless of what anybody says it is all up to you to do what is best for you and the people around you. You have more responsibility on you that can change a lot of peoples lives in a short 3 seconds or less of gunfire.

    What's next? "Don't mess with my boyfriend, or he'll kill you!"

    Although I don't think we should pass judgment on her based on those 2 events. Just try to explain it to her over and over I guess.

    It's how we communicate, talking to her at the 711 is not the time, she's pre occupied. When you get home a sit down with no background noise, tell her exactly what you want her to do, not what you don't want her to do, ask her if she understands, unless her I.Q. is below 60 she will. Now if the behavior continues, she does not want to change. Good luck Ryan

    I would take every oppourtunity to point out her recklessness to the point she tires of it and finally takes responsibility for her safety. The stuff you see on TV happens to real people ya know.

    Tell her that you wont carry around her anymore until she realizes how responsible you have to be to walk around armed and law abiding, and you wont risk jail for an unlawful shoot or death because of her foolishness.

    P.S. You saw that wink right???

    I get it differently.....she usually says as we are walking into a store "you have your gun?"...I quietly respond "yes and know EVERYONE else knows!"

    Well, I have a different take on it.

    While I agree you need to have an overall security talk with her, and emphasis things that can and will get you in trouble. You should enjoy the fact that she is spontaneous and like a “child” does not fear.

    Also, if the 711 near your house is that dangerous, I’d recommend moving.

    +1. Ask her if she wants you both shot from her carefree actions in public. I go into condition 1 anytime I pull up to a 7/11 or any other gas station/convenience store and stay there until I leave the parking lot. Those places in the the crack filled town I live nearby get hit on a regular basis. Couple are named "Stop and Buy". I call them the "Stop and Rob" They call our town "The Harbor of Hospitility". I call it the "Harbor of Hostility "!

    Thankfully I live in the sticks.

    We aren't in a bad part of town at all...pretty low crime rate, but I don't care what the "rate" is, crime still can and does happen everywhere.

    Someone mentioned something about having a talk right after it happens isn't going to do anything cause she's preoccupied. Sat her down at home and talked about it. She was more receptive, apologized, and promised to be more careful, and so far she has been.

    Agree....711's or similar establishments stink!
