I appreciate the response, but I think your judging a book by its cover...
That is what most women do. They size you up and don't really think about the cover, but what it portrays and how they feel about it. Then they
figure whatever feeling they experienced because of you that will be how they feel if they choose to be with you.
Personally I'm not into the women that assume a bunch of things about me after 5 minutes and treat me a certain way based on that, I like women who
keep an open mind about things, it's a natural filter.
If the root cause of my women issues layed in my hobby of target shooting, then I think I would have figured that out by now... and yes there have
been times that I met a woman and she found out I had guns and she didn't like it, so things didn't work out. I put that info on the table early on
to get it out of they way, no surprises. But by and far its not the motivating factor in the ending of most of my relationships...

Suppose you had a pic of yourself holding that gun in a certain stance at the firing range. That would make you look more aggressive, like you are
holding something dangerous but know how to wield it. Subconsciously this is a turn on for many women (I'm sure you can figure out why). It also
triggers those primitive feelings that make women look for a man that can protect them (and their children).
Ofcourse this is not a dating site, in real life you can't wear something like an avatar which expresses you instead you get judged on your
appearance, choice of words, attitude and things like that. If a woman finds out you own a gun and you don't tell her anything about it it will be
like you're giving her an empty book she needs to fill in herself. If you fill it in for her like emphasizing it's a social activity you do with
your mates and it's not about just shooting but mental concentration also it might make a huge difference. If she opposes guns because they have to
do with violence, argue how she should also oppose anything that can be used as a weapon to kill.
At first it's all about how you present yourself, better start working on that cover if you want any woman to read about the rest. Buy yourself a
glass vitrine for your guns and lock it; keep any ammo out of sight and this gives the impression you are a responsible person (and not triggerhappy
ready to grab any ammo and ready to shoot). Place the vitrine near your other sport stuff like in the garage so it shows you value it but it's not
the main thing in your life (it would be if you put it in the living room or near the main entrance). Put some pictures up in the house of you and
friends at the firing range so she can get some perspective on your hobby. Don't hide the gun otherwise she might think whatever you do with it is
something other people shouldn't know about.
