Someone asks you for your gun.. Spin off of the banquet thread
While posting my response to the "shooting at a banquet" thread I actually started laughing because if I were armed and my husband, JD, were not I could clearly see him asking for my gun.
Which brought me to question whether or not I would actually give it to him.
He has combat experience and I trust him but when it comes to accuracy with handguns I have him beat (only ever so slightly, mind you).
I couldn't help thinking about the scene from Mr and Mrs Smith when they are in the basement and the bad guys are coming and Mr Smith hands the Mrs a back up gun and she says, "Why do I get the girl gun?" and so they switch.
I could quite literally see JD and I hunkered under a table while shots are ringing out and him saying, "Give me your gun."
"I have a better shot."
"I have a better aim."
"I have experience."
"I have the gun."
I know that sounds kind of comical in what is supposed to be a serious scenario but I'm sure that stranger things have happened.
So, let's say you are at an event with a trusted shooting partner (it may or may not be a spouse)... you are carrying and he (or she) is not. You have trained with this person. You know his (or her) skills. The shots are ringing out. You have relatively good cover or at least concealment and your area doesn't seem to be taking fire at the moment. You are looking for that perfect opportunity to act when your partner says, "I have a shot. Give me the gun."
Do you hand it over?
Why or why not?
