I never did understand the point of Valentines day. Who was the guy and why does he justify all the extra retail shopping? :?

Just one more excuse for commercialism and guilt trips. As if there weren't enough of those in relationships. :wink:

Nothing says I love you more then a Glock automatic handgun.

That was your Valentine's gift? I'd like to think your text was sarcastic but since you took the time to post the photo, indications seem otherwise.

I appreciate the fact that your job as an armoured car guard requires you to carry one but... giving someone a weapon designed to kill people on a day that, albeit overly commercialised, is supposed to be about love.

What is it with America's fascination with guns?

An instrument designed to kill is a gift of love?

How sad. Perhaps, because of your job, it was to allow you to defend yourself better if need be? Pray tell us that was why otherwise this "gift" just saddens me.

It is for my job. With things getting bad everywhere...My hubby thought I needed something more then a .357.
Don't you think my Hubby wants me protected out there?? Come on... I walk around with anywhere for 10.00 to millions. I am not just some armed guard walking around a building. I deliver and pick up retail stores and bank money. The bad guys are everywhere....Armored truck people are getting killed almost on a daily bases...When the bad guys come to the fight they aren't going to have water guns. So yes I think the handgun was a gift of love....My hubby loves me enough that he wants me to be well protected out there. Sorry if others feel different. If it wasn't for my job....I wouldn't even own a handgun.

Doesn't your employer issue your sidearms? I'd have thought you'd have standard issue for all guards.

And yes, a .357, while I personally don't like guns (which stems partly from my humanitarian views and partly from my martial arts background and preferring hand to hand) is, as far as guns go, a "gorgeous piece" but in today's environment doesn't compare with an automatic.

When you're trying to empty the chamber and reload, popping in a fresh clip is much faster.

Like I said when the bad guys come...they will be carrying automatics...I just want a little more even of a fight.

I think it was a great gift. What better way to say "I love you!" than to show that you want her to return in one piece from work. Forget chocolate and flowers, they don't ensure a "happily ever after" :cool:

Is your hubbys name by any chance Tackleberry? :wink:

And don't forget about the compassion, and that's love in action, involved in putting down a sick puppy, whether it's two- or four-legged..

Found this through a completely unrelated series of links:

For some reason, this thread was the first thing that sprang to mind :)
