    stay away from this guy as much as possible, if required due to family obligations....don't talk guns/gun stuff around him lest he start talking or acting stupid and possibly escalating things

    if he ever speaks of having or getting a gun from a room, etc.....get you and yours outta there
    tell him straight up his behavior is concerning and dangerous and you don't want anything to do with him if he has a gun until he changes his attitude towards and with firearms and knows rules safety and safe gun handling

    I got a kick out of the title that you gave this guy. You said he was your future-half-brother-in-law. Maybe you should add one more prefix and change it to, "future-ex-half-brother-in-law" because at the rate that he is going I doubt he'll be around much longer.

    A bad driver plus a show off with a crappy gun equals a bad case of road rage where someone could be killed.My advice would be to drop the idiot like a hot rock. Maybe he will grow up if he dose not kill someone first.

    I agree with this 100%. I would tell his soon-to-be father-in-law and I'd probably report the child endangerment issue with the toddler. Also, have you discussed this issue with your parents. I'm sure if your parents knew about this nut-case, they would demand that you stay away from him, and rightly so.

    As a minor yourself, you do not have any business around someone so reckless and irresponsible. Him being "family" has nothing to do with it. He's your girlfriend's family not yours. If something were to happen to you, your real family will be devastated.

    You seem like a smart young man. Now use your smarts and make the choice to stay away from him. That is the smartest thing you can do. What would you have done if he had suddenly turned around and pointed that gun at you. Loaded or not, it would not have been a pleasant position to be in.

    Finally, in the words of Forest Gump....Stupid is as stupid does. Your continuing to be in this clown's company can only end in trouble if not death. When you know better you do better.

    And once you turn 21, seek professional firearms training and get a gun, and if you can, get a carry permit, in case you run into him again.

    Do not walk away, RUN! And if your girlfriend has a problem with it (which she should not, seeing as she saw the way that ****** **** ** *** *** was behaving, and her life was in danger as well), well then, it is time for a new GF! You have a good head on your shoulders, KEEP IT THERE!

    And Kudos to your Folks for raising you with respect for firearms, Too many do not!

    The father in law lives in Texas after being kicked out once it became know that he sexually abused his children, those being my girlfriend and her sister (the fiancé).

    My girlfriend and I have discussed guns a lot, because she doesn't believe I need to carry one but says she won't stop me once I turn old enough. She knows I will get my CCW and she does enjoy shooting, so in the future she will probably end up getting her CCW too. She was as cautious as I was with the gun and she doesn't even have safety knowledge of one. I told her some stuff a while back and she remembered it all in Indiana.

    My girlfriend and I discussed this situation again today and I brought up another situation I read either here or elsewhere online where a husband handed his wife an empty gun (she did not know this), and she just turned and fired at him point blank in the chest assuming it was empty, showing no concern. My girlfriend was horrified by this story, which was actually pleasing to me. I am glad she realizes it was stupid, it means she will be careful with her weapon usage.

    You can choose to avoid extended family, and you absolutely should avoid him at all cost. Folks are going to get hurt or die. Be sure to tell your GF and perhaps she should share his irresponsible behavior with her sister and her father. If my daughter were about to marry this idiot, me and him would have a long talk. Perhaps for a wedding present, buy him a good, easy-reading gun safety book (I'm sure folks here can give you some suggestions). The minute you said, "he kept 2 rounds for SD" I knew he had fallen out of the idiot tree and hit every limb on the way down. Unfortunately, you just can't fix stupid....but you can choose to avoid it.

    Be afraid ... be very afraid. Something bad is going to happen with him and you don't want to be around!

    If he ever says, "Hey, watch this," cover your ears and duck.
