Happy Valentine’s Day from TTAG!


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…

      RF and RF’s Valentine. “I want to protect her from anyone who’d do her harm, as best I can” This is usually accomplished best when you arm her and teach her to use the best tool to defend herself, unless you are lucky like me and find a woman that already knew how to shoot!

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

        1. avatar Don in PA says:

          This S&W guy thinks the Ruger LCR is the best carry revolver on the market.

        2. avatar Geoff PR says:

          Awww, how sweet! 🙂

          I hope you ‘lovebirds’ steer clear of hunters with birdguns….

          Not naming names…. Tyler, Tom, etc, etc….

    So that explains the lack of Israeli supermodels. . .

    1. avatar Another Robert says:

      “So that explains the lack of Israeli supermodels. . .”

      The spousal-candidate training has begun… 😉

    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. 🙂

  9. avatar Tom in Oregon says:

    A hearty congratulations to the both of you,
    Now, I do believe we may have a nickname for Robert.

    1. …and she fondly remembered Valentine’s Day 2015 as the day she won the Interwebs.

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

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

    Off topic, I heard that the ATF is considering a ban on green tip 556 ammo.

  12. avatar WV Cycling says:

    Got a Spiderco Paramilitary II (orange G-10) from the girl for V-Day. I’m pretty happy.

    1. That, my friend, is a keeper. The girl. Well, the knife, too, but the girl.

  13. avatar Jim R says:

    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.

  14. avatar Swarf says:

    Congratulations, porkchop.

    1. avatar Tom in Oregon says:

      THERE it is!

      1. avatar Jeff the Griz says:

        Irony- Calling someone of a Jewish background porkchop.

        1. avatar Swarf says:

          Jew d’oh chop.

  15. avatar Table says:

    Is anyone watching 50 Shades of Grey? Because apparently, it’s not a good depiction of real life love.

  16. avatar Ralph says:

    The sound of supermodels jealously ripping their bodices must be deafening all of Tel Aviv.

  17. avatar SpecialK says:

    Awesome 🙂

  18. avatar Former Water Walker says:

    Best of luck you two! Happy Valentines Day to everyone at TTAG.

  19. 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.)

  20. avatar Mark says:

    The clock on your range and microwave are not in sync with each other.

    Oh….and Happy Valentine’s Day.

  21. avatar JWM says:

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

    Looks like a New York reload next to the flowers.

  22. avatar Clay says:

    Pics or she isn’t real!
    I keed, good on you Farago.

  23. avatar David N says:

    I believe it was FDR and Eleanor who had matching snubbie 38’s engraved “his” and “hers”
