    She is just finishing high school and wanted to earn money for college this fall. She starts today as a part-time clerk at our local gunshop! That is the only place she has ever wanted to work, and she kept bugging the owner until he hired her!:D

    She has a Ruger Single Six in 22 mag, a Remington 597 .22, a Howa 1500 in .308, and a Spanish Mauser also chambered in .308. Chip off the old block.

    Signed,

    Proud Dad.

    Hey! That's how I got my first gun shoppe gig.

    Wouldn't leave so the owner hired me. What a dumb kid I was (am).:uhoh:

    As someone who spent years flipping burgers at McDonalds and frying chicken at Hugo's, please tell her I am chartreuse with envy.

    Started working as a "weekend manager" for a gunstore when i was 13. I was lucky, I hung out and the owners wanted to go to gun shows, so I got the job.

    The owner of the best local gunshop has two very attractive daughters . ..they are only working behind the counter occasionally, but it's funny to watch because when they do the sales of that place have to triple or quadruple. I was in there on a rainy saturday a few months ago and I swear that those girls sold a gun to every gun who made it to the counter. There were lines 3-4 deep.

    Cabela's in Wheeling had a sweet little dark-haired thing behind the counter first time I was in there. Knew her guns, too. No teenager, to be sure, but I'm a dinosaur myself. I can see where this thread's headed!

    Hawkman: what's she carry at work? Surely not the Mauser!

    Congrats to the young 'un!

    Stay safe.

    He might mean he is green with envy! If there was a good looking woman working at the local gunshop I would spend a lot of time hanging around myself!!!!!

    I stopped by to shoot while she was there. I noticed her eyeing another Mauser, and politely mentioned that the idea was that the shop owe HER more than she owes THEM on payday!;)

    She just got home and had a GREAT time!

    Congrats Hawkman to you and your daughter. You obviously took her shooting when she was younger and did a good job teaching her. You might want to try out her discount to make sure it works!

    This may just be me but I find that just being in a gunstore makes a woman appear hotter and sexier. Damn, this may turn out to be a wierd kind of fetish. :scrutiny:
