    Maybe this should be under Strategies and Tactics? :)

    I have a gorgeous 7 year old daughter and I'm already getting scared.



    Started thinking today... what gun is the ideal "cleaning when the new boyfriend comes over" gun? I got a few years to save up for it. And I intend to get his name etched on the brass before loading.

    So what's your vote for the ideal "Boy Friend Gun"

    Gold Plated Desert Eagle?

    Dirty Harry .44 Magnum?

    Classic 1911?

    Noisy Cricket?

    Mossberg 500 (Guess there's no brass to etch there, but... whatever. )




    (This is just for fun for you Safety Sallies that have no sense of humor. )

    EDIT: This thread is for fun. It's for fathers of daughters (or prior boyfriends) to discuss big guns.

    THIS IS NOT a parenting thread.



    THIS IS NOT for all the Cliff Clavin Experts out there who have raised 25 daughters to perfection to come here and tell us, "You know there, uh... Normie.... if you really want to know the best way to keep your daughter from rebelling..."

    No, we don't. We're talking about guns. We're having a fun discussion about big guns.

    It's not about the gun. Its about the crazy look in your eyes when your cleaning your gun with the boyfriend around.

    This is one application where size matters. The bigger the better.

    Walking through the room with my MAK90 ("I'll be in the garage for a few minutes") left a lasting impression.

    I was thinking something along those lines as well. A small talk in the garage right next to the shovel and bag of lye.

    You mean, next to a baseball bat with cloth tape with dried blood spots? And maybe a teeth still sticking in it for good measure? :)

    The thing is the boyfriend is gonna think its cool and going to want to go shooting with you. Your daughter will get pissed that you are getting more attention from her bf than she is and probably storm around the house for a few days.

    I had the same problem.
    When the boys started showing up at my door, I just put them to work.
    Raking the yard, cleaning my shop, washing my work van. They all thought that was the way into a date with my daughter.
    All but one gave up fairly early. I really liked the one kid for hanging in there, but my daughter had a crush on some geeky nerd at the time and he finally gave up and later on joined the Marines.

    You guys only think that your actions worked.
    You showed off favorite gun to the boyfriend, and later that night he showed his favorite gun to your daughter.

    I like to pet my Howdah 20 Ga/.60 cal, Ya. it's black powder, but It'll put a heck of a hole in what ever it hits with buck & ball loads. 11 1/4" barrels, and delivered to my front door in OR , it's a real kick in the pants to light it up, and a tad intimidating.

    Actually trying to intimidate a daughters boy friend or outwardly showing you don't like the guy etc. Is much more likely to have you end up with 2-3 Grandkids your not really fond of.

    Daughters rebel. And the easier you make it for the daughter to think she's getting under your skin the harder and faster she will head that direction.

    A much much better course of action is to befriend the guy get him to like you. Be his buddy. DO it correctly and they won't have a second date.

    And when she does bring one home you do actually like be indifferent to him. Be polite but act a little pained at having to socialise with him. She will pickup on this and the guys has a chance. Then once about the second Grand child is born you can slap him on the back and take him hunting.

    Heck I enjoy hanging out with my son in law almost as much as my own son. Now the first couple she brough home well lets just say I loved them right out the door LOL

    A brief talk, with the shovel, lye, baseball bat ( as mentioned above). While having gun stuff around, maybe a holster 'carelessly' well placed or some empty mags. Feel him out and if you get goose bumps put the fear of god in him.
    Also be completely frank with said daughter about what some of us men are really about. Give her the strength to be confident in herself and to completely be able to rely on you if trouble comes up. So when she calls you before the wrong decision is made there are no repercussions. Did this kind of stuff with step son and he's going to wait for his brain to mature before drugs, hates the taste of alcohol, and has a standing offer of free condoms ( box on standby, before any situation necessitates ) when the time is right. He's almost 18 and absolutely nothing like me. Plus a free ride should he or his friends get drunk or high. Hard thing to promise and even harder to keep, but better than the alternative. He will always be responsible and should he ever meet your daughter you don't have to worry too much. Good luck. Wish you the best.

    Maybe a long rusty wicked looking blade would be effective?
    Implying a slow and painful termination. LOL
    Spend some time sharpening it in front of him.

    Start with the shotgun and go from there - figure its more intimidating if you are cleaning a different one every time the BF comes to pick her up:
    Bonus - you end up with a better collection for use as well! :thumbup:
    Then again Mark may be on to something.

    The first dad that pulled that stunt on me when i came to courting his daughter was cleaning a nice revolver i think a .38 and at that time i was just a dumb teenager and i did not get it. I thought wow what a cool gun.

    The first time you meet him, come out of the shed/garage in a bloody apron and long rubber gloves carrying a bloody cleaver and give him a good bloody handshake. Act completely normal, ignoring the fact you are covered in blood.

    As my good friend in Scotland says "Aye, I just keep a few bottles of single malt around. Whenever he comes over, I'll invite him for a drink or two. Or more, enough to incapacitate him".

    He's now the father of 3 girls, so he started a social club "fathers against boyfriends". His oldest is 5 or 6, but at least they can plan ahead. :)
