    Shoot to still, not to kill!

    But dead men tell no tales Skyman!

    "Take photos of all prospective suitors and when they ask why, reply cryptically "In case the court requires them""

    I actually took photo's (front and profile) of my oldest daughter's first boyfriend. He laughed about it, but I'm sure it planted the neccesary seed in his mind.

    :-O

    When you own cameras and guns and mention that you're going to shoot someone, well, it's good to let their imagination run wild...

    I'm not going [I]near[/I] this one.

    "I'm assuming besides guns, you also have a car..."

    Two cars and a boat! The Great Dismal Swamp is a great place to get lost, or lose something. I also hear bouy 13 is a popular place for dumping bodies.... Just rumor mind you. I wouldn't know firsthand - yet.

    That's my line of thinking as well.

    Plenty of questions....

    I will say they are Beeeautiful.... and the younger blonde reminds me of one of my high school girlfriends. Her dad owned guns too, and so did her mom. In fact her mother pulled us over one night while we were out... yeah, her parents were cops! Considering I was known in 10 counties by all the police it was definately awkward on the first meeting of her parents, they knew me as soon as I pulled in the driveway, and it didn't help when pops mentioned the coroner lived next door, to which his daughter said "John knows, he used to go out whith his daughter too" Nothing like looking at photos of dead people at the dinner table Anyway the fact I drove a 69 GTO Judge Ram Air IV 400 that shook the house didn't help matters, or doing wheelies in the parking lot at school. :thumbsup:

    JS

    Oh man, you had it ROUGH! Both of her parents were cops?! And the coroner lived next door - how convenient.

    You drove a 69 GTO? I'll bet the cops did know you!

    Thanks for the comments - and the story.

    Wink It might be a good idea to do away...

    "with all of your phone services and internet. At least until they are in their 30's.LOL. Nice shooting."

    If it was only that simple...

    Too convenient
    Yeah, I made a living racing for titles, it was hard on my parents yard, at one point I had 28 that I had won, and never went out without at least $5000 in my pocket, not bad for a high school kid in the late 70's I never lost in that car, and even beat a 67 Vette in my other beast, a 1966 Olds Delta 88 with a 455 in it. A battleship on wheels and steroids Never got caught either (by the parents either)....ahhh, the good old days.

    No need to be scared. Just teach him to be polite, respectful, and celibate.

    Hehehe.

    Seriously though, he could just date ugly girls...

    :-O

    For the record, I have yet to shoot one of my daughters boyfriends. Meaning, I'm a nice guy. Really, my kids friends think I'm great.

    This is one of the youngest daughter's classmates. His mother works with me, and she spent the Thanksgiving holiday in the hospital. So he stayed with us for five days.

    For the record, he and my youngest are best friends. I had him help me sharpen my bush ax and my machete one day. When I cut my finger on the machete, he got nervous. After all, who sharpens a machete that sharp? A protective father??

    ;-)

    Needless to say, he was a perfect gentleman...

    Re: Why I Own Guns...

    Nice shots Speed. I think that last shot is especially great. They look like they were having a blast.

    It's got to be great for his self-esteem to have such a bevy of beautiful friends.

    The shots of you with your daughters are nice also. The youngest seems to have a natural posing instinct for having her portrait made.

    Thank you for the kind words. I have been blessed to have such a good looking family. And they all look older than they are. Just one more reason why I own guns. For the good of the public, you understand.

    Re: Why I Own Guns...

    Just cannot believe what I'm reading in this thread.
    You have four young daughters so you load your house with guns to protect them!?
    They look old enough so why not just give them a gun each for their handbags or maybe that has been already dealt with.
    I shudder to even think further on this .....

    Ha, ha, you sound like my DH. He can't wait to be sitting there cleaning his guns when the first boy shows up. He says his line is going to be "You know boy, I ain't afraid to go back to prison". He's never been to prison.

    It's great that your daughters are so photogenic. Seems like so many teens hate having their pictures taken. Especially the girls! They are very pretty.

    What a gorgeous group of girls. You can be very proud.
    BTW, When it comes to the ownership of a gun to fend the boys off, it just doesn't work. Trust me, they will still come, albeit a bit more respectful. Don't ask how I know this. :mad2:
    BTW, The Grandkids are great. :thumbsup:

    Thank you Bruce!

    As for the boys, you are right - they will come. Whether they come respectful, afraid, uneasy, it doesn't matter to me. There is sometimes a fine line between fear and respect and I really don't care which side they are on. When one shows up without any fear or respect, then there's going to bo trouble!

    You are right - grandkids are great! Our first, and so far only, grandchild is nearly 17 months old and he's much more fun than the kids were!
