So Ya Wanna Date My Daughter?

Tonight Ashley is going to her first homecoming dance. She’s going with her friend Sam from church.

I decided that it would be good to take a picture to capture the moment. (“You kids have fun!”)

    This might be the single greatest picture I’ve ever seen in my life. My daughter’s “Fall Ball” is in November and we are SO stealing this idea!!! Hope she had a wonderful time. 🙂

    Is that a Remington 870 express?

    Did you give him the talk too? It goes something like this… I REALLY love my daughter, and there is just no telling what I would do if someone hurt her. It might just drive me insane and make me do something stupid. But that’s OK, prison wasn’t that bad, I don’t mind going again!!

    Rodney Atkins’, “Cleaning This Gun (Come on in, Boy)” One of my favorites.

  5. Jeremy Stafford says:

    I thought you mind this funny from one of the Catholic Speakers about taking his daughter out.

  6. Casey says:

    LOL. Great picture. Thankfully, I haven’t had to get out the gun yet.

  7. Adam Jacobus says:

    What, no bandolier??

  8. Ryan Forkel says:

    Looks like you’re getting in touch with your inner Clint Eastwood…or Charles Bronson.

  9. Shawna says:

    That’s exactly how my husbands feels every time my daughter, who’s a senior, and her boyfriend comes over.

    Dude you are setting bad examples.
    1. Unless you are going to shoot your daughter you’ll acquire your target quicker if you angle the gun more towards the “perp” rather than away from him.
    2. Don’t put your finger on the trigger until you are ready to pull the trigger. Say you wanted to gut check him with the stock, with your finger on the trigger you might have an accidental discharge.
    3. Wear a manlier shirt! (Not saying I don’t own one the same color, but I wouldn’t be holding a shotgun while wearing it)

    • Ha… you’re a turd Jimmy! 🙂 (but you actually make really good points. I’m going to have to note that about the trigger… especially during a Zombie attack. Although I’ll probably wear my pink shirt during that!)
