I’m in love. Why wouldn’t I be? I’ve found a good woman. Finally. Discretion being the better part of valor (and chivalry) I’ll refrain from singing her praises on these pages. Suffice it to say now that I’ve found her I don’t want to lose her. I want to protect her from anyone who’d do her harm, as best I can, just as I protect my children, friends and community. My everyday carry gun doesn’t change the fact that life is a messy, unpredictable, complicated and yes, dangerous business. It simply gives me a better chance to do what I have to do. As a man. As a father. As law-abiding American. And a lover. Happy Valentine’s Day.

  1. Best. TTAG. Post. Evah. 🙂

    I don’t know about “good”, but I do know I am a very lucky woman. Besides, guns and roses: it’s a perfect combination. Happy Valentine’s Day, Robert. Murgle…skiffer…porkchop…

  2. Yay RF!

    “One of those revolvers- a Ruger LCR – is hers. Now.”

    … And when you find you need to start hiding the ammo so there’s some left for you .. you know you found The One. And that it’s time to start reloading. 🙂

      • “Happy Valentine’s Day to all of you TTAG-ers, especially my Porkchop. ♡”

        Oh, Ralph’s gonna have fun with ‘porkchop’… Heh!

        Blessings to you both…

  3. I’m happy for you, RF. Me? ….Call me bitter if you like–I may not know what women want, but I sure as hell know I ain’t got it.

  4. We (my wonderful wife of 35 years and I) hope you find lasting happiness and enjoy each other for many more Valentines Days. (This from a guy who still doesn’t always know what my woman wants but gets lotsa points for continuing to try.)

  5. Murgle…skiffer….porkchop? WTF? I want a copy of that police report. 🙂

    Looks like a New York reload next to the flowers.
