    Tomorrow evening I will be popping the question to the gf. Figured I'd give y'all a lil insight in how ima do it. Any last minute ideas would be appreciated


    I've talked her up for weeks thinkn that we have been shooting to practice for some gun competition lol so tomorrow I will have her shooting sporting clays and a block of wood. She literally is clueless to the whole ordeal

    First we will start here where she will be shooting clay discs with a pistol on that stack of wood

    This camera will be taking pics from 15' above

    Then we will go to here. Notice the red yellow and blue marks. The red line if u will look on te far tree you will see a small bump on the tree that's a deer cam of mine. The yellow is my video camera and the blue is where the block of wood will sit. She will shoot from this spot with my 222.
    [​IMG]
    Here is the stack of wood in which she will be shooting the 222 from. Notice the camera. When we walk from around it this cam will be taking pics of us walking up to the block in which she just shot.

    When she gets to the block of wood I will tell her to pull the target off of the block and lets See where she hit at and when she pulls the target off the block she will then see this

    NOW leading all up to this I've told her I was takin her to a "fancy" one act play that serves dinner while play is going. It's a dressy type place so this is my way of getting her to wear nicer cloths than normal without giving it away. Also I felt she would liable to be conscious of her nails when showing people the ring SO at school I have a student in a cosmetology class goin to do her nails to have that covered and it's for a "grade" so I got that covered!

    So about this one act play thing, yea that's a lie. I actually have the back half of a local restaurant reserved and her family my family and all of her friends and my friends are goin to get there before 8pm we have "reservations" at 815pm so when we get to what is supposed to be the play she will walk into the room and it be our whole group of about 30 people there awaiting to surprise here.
    Here are a few decorations I have for the restaurant

    Lol man, thats alot better then what i did. Lol i showed my wife and she said why didnt u do somethng like that lol.
    All i did was give her a little box and she thought it was a present and i got behind her when she opened it and it said this was just a way to get you to not look while i get down on one knee and it said turn around. Then i popped the question and now well be married one year on may 11.
    The funny thing is i was so nervous but i kmew she would say yes cuz we always talked about it lol. But good luck, thats like the best proposal idea ive seen! Hope it works out for you!!

    If I knew she was gonna say no u think I'd be askin her? She is aware it's going to happen she just has no clue when. We've talked about it it's not like she is in the blind

    It is not too late to rethink this!!!!! Sell the ring and buy a new bow.............

    But if you insist.... Congrats, I'm sure she will love it.
