I like shooting, a lot. However, I think it's important to be discreet. I didn't tell anyone at work I like the shooting sports until 6 months in... and even then I only told a few people. The usual question of "what are you doing this friday/weekend" are the usual, oh watching a movie, hiking, reading books, instead of shooting in the woods with friends, rifle league, reloading, testing loads. Having just separated from a girlfriend of two years a few months back, I got the digits and a date set up with a pretty red headed girl next week. Intelligence revealed that her ex-bf was [insert my race]. How long should I hold out on just how much of a gun nut I am? She's liberal, but got conservative parents from Phoenix. Remembering what it was like before I had firearms, I don't want to be too threatening. I'm thinking i'm not going to tell her about the 80 pounds of ammo in my closet until she puts out. And then i'll promptly bring her to the range and indoctrinate her, hehe.
