The question

This question came to me while I was eating today at a restaurant. I did not intend on sitting down to eat. (Friend asked me if I would have lunch with them.) So I did not have my holster on me, (Because I cant be fully prepared at all times it seems.) so my firearm stayed in the vehicle. We were seated and our waitress happen to be attractive. Continued on with our meals until I picked up on her flirtatious behavior towards me. I am thinking "What the hell this never happens to me?" As food was in my mouth at the time rendering me speechless. She walks away. My friend, after taking a drink of his water through the his straw while watching her walk off through the maze of tables, turns to me and and points out what I had just noticed. I begin a process of elimination of what is different from me today as appose to other days. the only notable difference is I am not wearing my firearm. Of course there is the chance of just this one women out of the last 2 years just happen to be attracted to me, ( As a side note I am nothing striking regardless of the title of the post. I am nothing more then a ordinary guy, but beauty be in the eye of the beholder.) or there was something different today.

This happen to turn into a ramble I apologize. So comes the question. "Ladies, Would you approach a attractive man openly wearing a firearm?"

Generally? No. Especially if he was wielding it.

I don't care how sexy you are, guns scare me.

I am malee, but I know a few female friends that have been out with someone a few times, and then after found out they own guns, and had a moral dilemma about it.

And that's not even open carry.

I'd say a LOT of women would probably have issue, unless you were in a police uniform.

I honestly wouldn't trust anyone carrying around a gun in public.

Thank you all for your honest feedback so far. I look forward to hearing more. I would also like to say my intentions of carrying is for good reason I believe. If someone was in trouble be it my family, friends, or even a stranger. I could not stand by and watch someone get hurt. Every life is valuable to me because every life has a chance to do good in the world. Even though a lot do not choose to do good. I would not want someone to deny them the chance to ever do good. The quote "We should all fear the indifference of good men." really struck true to me. So I had shot several firearms before this decision and now that I own my own fire arms I shoot almost every given weekend. I do have a conceal carry but sometimes it is uncomfortable to wear a jacket. I know I could explore other options of carrying other then a shoulder holster but it is my preference.

Anyways I guess we can see it is easy for me to just ramble on forever. Again I look forward to more feedback. Thank you all.

Why no woman carrying gun?



"Nice gun you're carrying"

"Thank you, I am also carrying a firearm."

"O_O"

I would ask what kind of gun he has, how he likes it, and if he would recommend it to others who are interested in purchasing a firearm. Then I would tell him about mine. Those who are afraid only choose to let fear consume them.

I'm from Australia, and gun laws here are pretty strict, so you wouldn't normally see people randomly walking around with guns. If the guy was attractive enough for me to like him in the first place, I think asking why he had a gun would be a good ice-breaker

I don't mind guns, I've gone to shooting ranges plenty of times and a lot of my friends out guns and go hunting on a regular basis. I love talking about guns and when people know what they're doing, there's no need to be scared of them.

That being said, I have to admit if I saw someone with a gun around in public, I probably wouldn't approach them. It seems like a douche move in my opinion. Why would you need to carry it around in the first place unless 1) you're trying to show off or 2) you are so insecure that you need to tote around a gun all the time. Now I know that this definitely isn't the case for everyone but for me, it doesn't set a good first impression.

*slowly backs away* I don't like and/or feel comfortable around guns.
