I am am a licensed and trained marksman, and also trained in self defense scenarios. Carrying a handgun is as natural to me as putting on my boots. Having said that, I'm not an in your face protestor for 2nd amendment rights, (although I support the 2nd amendment). I am aware of the concerns certain people have seeing a firearm, and do not like to make people feel uncomfortable. I would not carry my gun if it made my date uncomfortable, but if the relationship got serious, the philosophical difference would absolutely become an issue.
so what are your thoughts?
