i agree, much better to have one and not need it.
Wow, thats a tough one, a 4yr old at home would change the way i keep my guns,
my kids are older, youngest is 10 and the son is 13, they have been taught how to handle
guns and shoot, so i am not as worried about them, they know not to mess with them unless
there is a danger. And they know the wrath that would come down upon them if i ever caught them
playing around with any gun.
I taught them to respect the gun, took their favorite small toy when they were younger, and we went
out to the woods to shoot, then i shot their toy and they got to see first hand what happens when a bullet
hits something you care about. It was a good eye opener for them, a way to make them think that they
could relate to at the time.
Im the same way, real light sleeper, plus over the years the kids bedroom doors have developed a squeak
as well as the door to our bedroom, each door has its distinct sound, so i know when the kids are up at night,
(which drives them nuts that i catch them because they dont know how i find out).
The wife on the other hand could sleep though a tornado and not even budge.
Always wanted a Desert eagle, sweet pistol. Broke my nose on a .357 Mag when i was around my sons age,
a friend of dad's let me shoot, first time i had shot a bigger gun, he told me, go ahead and pop a few off, it
dosent kick much. Their is a big difference between the upper body strength of a 12 year old and a grown man.
It was a revolver, kicked back, the hammer got me right in the middle of my nose, i have a nice lump and a small
scar still. Learned never to believe anyone about not kicking, always over compensate for the first shot of a new
That was a good deal on your pistol you got, not a bad price at all. Although did i read it right on a post, it has no
safety on it? Hmm not sure how i would feel about that. Its a aspect to guns i do look for and have yet to own one without one, i'd have to do
some thinking before i could convince myself to buy it.
Happy Bday by the way. I got my first pistol when i was 18, but then again that was a different time
in society. Also got my first license when i was 14, Living on a farm has it's benefit's some times.
