When I was younger, I was seeing a girl for a while. When I met her dad, he asked if I wanted to see his gun collection. I surprised him when I gave him a pretty enthusiastic "sure!". I guess around here, dads consider that a threat. Where I grew up, it was a compliment, because it meant he trusted you enough to handle his guns.
Reminds me of the story my cousin told me. She was out (I think at a wedding) and some guy was hitting on her. Her older brother walked up, put a hand on his shoulder and said "have you ever dug a really big hole?". A little while later her other brother asked "You ever been cut?". Apparently, that guy didn't stick around long.

Sharpening a whole display of knives is also an effective choice if you've already tried cleaning your firearms in front of a gentleman caller.
There's nothing wrong in putting a little fire under someone's arse to keep them on the track of the straight and narrow.
