OK. Couple of questions...

I recently was "setup" with a girl who I have known for the last 2-3 months but never hung out much. Now, we have hung out 2-3 times very informally at the local pub since then... She mentioned on the last occasion that she has never fired a gun, so I have offered to take her to the range this week.

#1 Would this qualify as a date and if so, I should probably work dinner into the plans correct?

#2 They rent guns at the place we are going... besides a .22, what would be a good starter gun (she is a very small girl). I am thinkin a .38 should be fine. (.32/7.65mm would be perfect but last I checked they didn't have any)

Just an FYI.. I am not a social retard but this whole "setup" thing has me thrown a little off... doesn't feel very natural yet... but the girl is too nice and far too good looking to not give a shot.

I'd say the ball is in your court. If you want to find out where you stand with her, include dinner in the plans, make it clear that you consider it a date, and see how she reacts. The longer you keep the relationship ambiguous, the more you are heading for the friend zone. Of course I am the worst possible person this side of Claython to take dating advice from.

#2- She asked me to pick for her "something that won't knock me down" She knows ZERO about guns, so i am gonna be picking whether I like it or not. I'll be shooting a Kimber .45 and let her try it if she wants... but for her.. here is a partial list of what is available.

Get a .40. My wife had never fired a gun before I took her to a range. She hated the 9 mm bc she wasn't accurate (she's kind of competitive). I let her have the .40 and she loved it. She was accurate and it wasn't too strong for her (which is good because she's not very strong).

Edit:after looking at the list go with the sig .40

This hence my reco of a .40. You can start to help her and then when she gets the hang of it, she can shoot it herself and do well (boost her ego, take her to dinner and then bang haha double entendre).

I'd say go to the range and see how that goes. You have a good time and she seems into it you can always say "Well, I had a good time. Would you like to have dinner or do you already have plans?"

Sure sounds like a "date" to me. I would work dinner into the plans, then maybe if all works well you gun let her try your "gun":evil:

9 mm doesn't kick hardly at all. That is probably the biggest i would give her.

First you take her to the range. Then you take her out to the park and shoot some squirrels, and then you cook them and have them for dinner together since it's not right to waste a good squirrel. It's a nice natural flow of events.

Did I ever mention that I grew up in southern Missouri?

Most women can handle a 9mm or a .38 without any problem.

What I would do: Start her on a .22 to learn the basic operation, and compliment her on what a good shot she is. Then you can crank the fun up by giving her a 9mm, which is still easy to shoot but will feel massive. She'll have a blast.

If the gun date goes well, maybe next time you can take her to a brass knuckles expo. That's much more intimate.

My wifey shoots the .40 much better than the 9 mm. I thought that was odd but after talking to the range guys they said it was quite common and said the .40 was easier to shoot.

Anyway, I'd rent a .22 and then if she wants to, rent other guns. It will cost extra money, but on the first date it is worth it.

I'd go out for dinner.

She's cute dude. Congrats :thumb:

- Definately start with a .22
- Move on to a .357 mag revolver, but shoot .38 specials first. If she can handle that, have her shoot the magnums. Her outstanding rack should absorb much of the recoil.
- After that, see if she wants to handle your magnum.:evil:

This is pretty safe and I think the less "smooth" you try to be, the better... just have fun... she obviously has an interest and I'm guessing you've been yourself around her in the past and not the "hey let me be smooth and impressive guy" around her.

Just have fun, enjoy it and make sure she has fun... the rest will work itself out.

If she decides she wants to try a rifle, then let her try the AR15. They are great fun to shoot, with virtually no recoil.

Be yourself and have fun...

Warrior5
06-11-2009, 05:45 AM
Yes, it's a date, and a fun one at that.

Start with the .22. Perfect way to start, and she should be able to attain a decent level of accuracy. That's important; she needs some positive reinforcement in order to enjoy shooting.

I recommend then moving her up to the .380; it's small enough to still be comfortable in her hand, has a little bit more kick, and it's fun.

At that point, let her decide if she wants to move up to something larger.

Just take her to dinner; don't give her the option. Nothing fancy, since you'll both be wearing casual clothes to shoot in.

Let us know how it goes.

She likely doesn't care that much about shooting and the accuracy... this is just something new and it "sounds fun" to her, so don't over think all the suggestions. Just roll with it.

Oh, don't pull a cheddar bomb and shoot yourself... that's likely an ender.

JD10367

My date advice is always simply, "Mouth before butt, for etiquette's sake".

A shooting range is good, though. Gives you a chance to stand behind her, help her hold the gun and sight it, pressed up against her back while your right arm and hers are touching, your hand holding hers while she gently squeezes the barrel of the long hard object while you feel the curve of her buttocks on your thighs and smell her sweet hair as you breathe softly into her right ear while giving her advice... um, hold on, gotta go take care of something...
