  • (GD) Granddaughters make me proud around my guns....

    Three of 'em here from Texas. 13/13/8 years old. Been in my cabin playing on my pc all day. Unsupervised (they think).

    Ten feet away, nineteen long guns against the wall. No problem. They will not touch them until later this week when grandpa (me- ) lets them shoot. Yes, they did look. No touches.

    My kids have raised their children to respect and not fear guns. As I raised them.

    I cannot speak for someone elses childs' safety around guns, but I can vouch for mine.

    I am proud!

              Around Chateau Ironhand the young 'uns will NEVER touch any of the guns here without permission!! 2 of them have their own rifles(AR-15's, including one we just built..sort of)and even the youngest 2(4 and 6) will not go anywhere near a real firearm if they see one out of the safe.

              We knew that if you take the "mystery" out of firearms children are much less likely to sneak around and try to play with them. It seems that many of the tragedies that occur each year with kids shooting themselves and others is due to the parents "hiding" guns from their kids. Kids, being smarter than they are given credit for, know where the hidden guns are, and end up with them before long.

              Teach 'em young, and they will not depart from it..or words to that effect!!

                Killing for the sake of honor is no longer allowed in our decadent society
                more\'s the pity, as it would greatly improve manners.

                    It is not the kids (yours/mine)who are educated about gun safty that i worry about. the reason most of my guns are kept locked up is the other people who may come in contact with them, such as
                    my kids friends..

                    You see, I was shot with my own gun in my own room with the best ammo i could find (CCI MINI MAG)My dad was a cop and ever since i can remember
                    he has tought me about gun safty at 10 i had a knife collection i shure wish i still had today...lol
                    Anyway at 16 i owned several .22 rifles a marlin .35rem and a colt single action .22 revolver
                    and my parents thought nothing of me having guns/ammo because they knew i was safe with them
                    HOWEVER I had this "friend" who for some
                    F%$#^n reason went in to my room, went in to the bottom drawer of my dresser unwraped the gun from the silicone gun rag it was wraped in and proceded to play freekin cowboy with my freekin gun !!!!! So he seeing that i am pissed
                    "hands" It to me BARREL FIRST AND OF CORSE THE GUN WORKED AS SAM COLT INTENDED, AND BLEW A NICE .22 CAL HOLE IN MY HAND....LOL (IT'S FUNNY NOW)So the moral of the story..??
                    Hell i dont know the moral.. unless it is always watch out for the other idiot...

                              (imitate using "vampire seeing the daylight" tone of voice)

                              I have seen the guns .... ARGHHH ... BLACK EVehL GUNNS .... ARRRRRGHHHHHHHHHHHHHhhhh ...... I am dying .... arghhhhhh ..... the guns .... ....

                              Took my son and daughter 5 lessons in gun safety, and i'm sure most of you know wich 5 i'm talking about, but they do not "fear" guns, they do respect them though.
