    Default To open carry or not open carry that is the question.

    So tomorrow I'm going on a date with someone I've never met before. We have talked and stuff but I'm deciding whether I should open carry, or conceal my glock 23. Or if I should carry my dads ruger lcp instead. The only bad part of the lcp is I cant carry with one in the chamber because I dont have a holster for it and I dont feel like having my nuts accidentley shot especially when I might need them later that night but anyways In all seriousness I'm in quite a dilemma here and was looking for some genuine input.

    IMHO id just conceal the 23 until you are familiar with who this person is. Wouldn't want to see the date turn for the worse because of something like OC. Maybe probe how he feels about firearms some how? Hell setup a second date at a shooting range lol. I guess if you were to go that far then ya might as well just OC hah.

    Ask her if she would think you were crazy if you told her you were carrying a firearm right now?

    Are you serious? Conceal it. Yeah, it's your right and all, but come on, you're going on a blind date. Why not just show up with a full facial tattoo, or a mouth full of scorpions?

    I honestly think the best reason to conceal it would be to avoid an embarrassing encounter whether it be with the police or a libtard.

    I vote for conceal...the LAST thing you want on a blind date (or any first date) is to jump right into politics...let that come up on the second date.

    Conceal to start, and bring up the topic of hobbies (not politics). When it's your turn, say you like to go target shooting, and see how she reacts. Definitely do not open carry without discussing it first.

    Oh, and take the Glock

    Conceal on the first date. As you're getting to know each other bring up your interest in guns/shooting. Find out on the first date if she is anti. If so no need for a second date. Feel her out before attempting to feel her up.

    Talking Re: To open carry or not open carry that is the question.

    If you need tips on how to get her to scream twice in one bedroom visit, i have a system that works wonders. but only if you are in her bed and she has new drapes, or a new bedspread. Happy to help!

    I would only open carry if you were going to go with the full facial tattoo and the scorpion thing as a distraction from the fact that you were OCing.

    The real question is, is she a local or a transplant? If she's a Honesdale area transplant, she probably brought her anti-gun agenda with her across the border. If she grew up in the area (and more importantly, if her parents grew up in the area) she probably has a gun rack in her pickup truck.

    Either way, good luck with it.
