  • Went to shooting range today with my 18 year old daughter...

    Had a great time with my daughter today, been many times with her. She shot a 9mm with a laser and also a .45 full size. I don't know about you guys, but I will not let my daughter be a news story, or a one hour episode on Investigation Discovery of a woman who get's raped and murdered. If some dumb SOB decides he is gonna break into my house, while she is the only one home, that bastard is going out in a body bag. Period.

    My wife and I have CCW and I carry everywhere - she does around the Holidays or when something weird is going on and wants the added security.

    All of our kids shoot with us all the way down to my youngest who was 8 when she was shooting my wife's Sig .380. All but my youngest shoots the AR, as well. I feel it is incredibly important for kids to understand the power of firearms and how to responsibly handle them and be used to being around them.

      Amen! You grow up with them, you respect them. I don't have a daughter but if I did I would do the same thing.

        P238? If so, great gun. I don't need to holster it because it's small enough to fit in my jean pockets, but it still fits well in my large hands.
        The average silverback gorilla in the wild is between 5'7 and 5'11, and weighs between 298 and 397 pounds (according to wikipedia). Why not shoot for that?

            Doug and Skip, I have a lot of respect for the way you are both handling guns (and more importantly self defence) with your children.

            I live in England where you cannot legaly possess a gun, a law with doesnt stop shootings or armed robberies. Sadly, my government would rather allow rape to occur than facilitate women defending themselves.

            mad respect to you both.

              Kansas has constitution carry. Don't need none of that CCW License here. Just stick that gun in your pants and go on with your business.

              Kansas sucks for everything else, but we win there.

                If our govt. had a choice, we would not be much different.

                      Good to see you educating your children. As a cop we have that saying "When seconds count, we're only minutes away."

                      Australia has a very different culture to America but what does not change is that the major victims of non drug / alcohol related violence are women and children.

                      As someone big and ugly enough not to be targeted I, like most men, walk around feeling safe whilst women, who have far less ability to defend themselves have to think about where they go for a walk by themselves, where they park when shopping or at work, where they stop on the way home to grab extra milk.

                      Any form of defense education is vital and those that ignore it are victims waiting to happen.

                      Good job to anyone keeping themselves and family safe cause all we cops can do is try find your attacker and tell your parents the bad news.

                        Amen, good post. The targets are often women, since they are easier to subdue. More women need to be aware of their surroundings, not stuck with head in phone. Plan ahead a little on shopping, go in the daytime if possible, etc.

                          Believe it or not, I'm in favor of teaching kids to shoot at a young age.
                          1) It's fun as fuck.
                          2) If you keep things away from kids that they're curious about, they'll just end up fascinated and obsessed about it as adults. Me, for example.
                          3) It's fun as fuck.
                          4) Guns are so ubiquitous in the US that I think teaching kids to handle them safely and responsibly is very important.
                          5) Fun.

                            I here u man
                            I was trusted with a gun by my father before I was trusted to drive

                            I was raised on a huge farm (where I still live)
                            He always instilled in me
                            This is serious shit you got here in your hands
                            Don't ever point that shit at something u don't want a hole in

                            And my dad always instilled in me this is a right you have to posses this
                            This

                            And I'd sooner be caught drunk than caught handling a firearm inappropriately by my father
                            My brothers and I all are gun lovers and owners
                            And I intend to be for life
                            I see you didn't take a s#!t before deadlifting....
                            I too like to live dangerously

                              Great posts guys! Thanks.

                              I just want women to be able to defend themselves, if they have to. I have never harmed a woman, nor will I ever. Not everyone is like us, clearly.

                              Nothing else is an equalizer between a 120 pound female and a 200 pound plus, aggressive male.

                              These stalker men, or disgruntled ex husbands/lovers, the law is not on their side. The firearm is really the only thing, at the end of the day, that matters.
