    Interesting day at Brookhaven

    Took my daughters boyfriend of 4 years to the range today. He's not new to shooting and went to the range day we had 2 years ago. He owns a shotgun for home defense and had a hunting license years ago. He also wants to get back into shooting clays. I started him off on a 22 bolt and worked up to the AR 9 then the AR 15.
    Now comes the interesting part. When we got back to the car he asked me for my daughters hand in marriage . Before he could finish trying to get the words out I knew what was going on and gave him my blessing . It looks like I have a new shooting buddy and the son I never had . He knows in a good shot and the consequences of what could happen . Still not sure if he really wanted to go shooting today or saw this as the perfect opportunity to ask.
    All in all another fine day at the range that I'm sure I'll never forget

    It's trap. He just wants to inherit your guns.

    Congrats though.
    Have a nice day.

            Takes a pretty big pair of balls to ask fathers' permission to marry his daughter while he is carrying, lol. Congrats.

                          Congrats Phil. Sounds like a nice guy. Just don't show him the Hunting Spot.

                            Congrats Phil, but I didn't hear anything about a mini-mag dowry in your story - how serious is he?
