    Welcome from Peoria, AZ. For the girlfriend question you're actually ahead of where I started out with my wife, as she didn't allow me to even own a gun when we were first married. I still have not reached my ultimate goal which is to show her how much fun shooting a gun at a range is. I've heard many stories of people who did not like guns only needing to go shooting one time to realize all the fun they've been missing out on. I invite my wife every time I go to the range. She has not said "never" but has always had some excuse or other. Just keep up the invites & be sure to keep it at a single friendly invite per trip - if she feels pushed she'll likely push back. :)

    According to the National Safety Council, we are more likely to die in a bicycle accident or plane crash than an accidental gun shooting. We should ban bicycles & planes before banning guns.

    Hello from Flagstaff! was born in Tucson but migrated north to cooler country.. As for the GF, If she doesn't want to go, then buy the .22 for yourself! You can rationalize it with her as "Gee honey, just think how much money we will be saving on ammo! Now you can go buy that (insert whatever) for yourself!"
    "These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier
    and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the
    service of his country; but he that stands it now, deserves the
    love and thanks of man and woman."

    In case anyone was wondering, here's an update on the GF situation. We reached a compromise tonight.

    The deal is that I can't own more than 2 weapons at a time, and she also asked me not to carry when we go out together. (Obviously, I want to carry everywhere, not knowing when some dude wacked out on PCP will go nuts, but I think this is pretty good progress nonetheless.) I also agreed not to clean my guns while she's around.

    I think it'll only be a matter of time before she becomes more comfortable and sees for herself that guns aren't horrible killing machines. I really just hope that it doesn't take a close encounter to fully convince her. I promised not to invite her to the range every time I go, but I left an open invitation to come with me whenever she wants.

    I know, I know... it's not a perfect arrangement. But at least I get to keep the girl and have a couple of guns at the same time. AND, she even said she'd be OK with them once we get married and have kids, provided that I secure them properly (obviously). Not bad!
