    Would you loan a gun to a friend?

    My buddy had to send his jammomatic Sig back to them for warranty work. They said three weeks to get it back. In the mean time I wanted to make sure he was still able to carry something so I loaned him my Glock 26. I'm hoping he will decide to sell the sig and buy a glock after he gets the chance to carry one around for a while :)

    No way. There are far too many things that can go wrong.

    No good deed goes unpunished.

    yes, I have and will loan guns to "gunless" friends or relatives that express a desire. Of course I make them sign over their car and first born before they walk with my gun, as I have very untrustworthy friends and relatives.

    turning a SIG snob into a Glockafile is kinda like trying to convert a Catholic to Presbyterian......when the snow flies in Hades. Good luck.
    Kimbers are the guns you show your friends....Glocks are the ones you show your enemies.

    Not just No, But Heck No. Does the word "liability" mean anything to you.

    OK, maybe I have been hanging around lawyers too much, but I still would not do it.

    I have friends I would loan a gun to. I have other friends I wouldn't sell one to.

    To me loaning a gun is like loaning out your wife. Ain't gonna happen!

    LOL, going from Sig to Glock? That just replaced my definition of insanity. Thanks for that.

    But I wouldn't loan a pistol out unless War was happening. Too much liability.

    To the ones that are into guns like me, yep. The ones unfamiliar with guns, nope.

    Have states really passed liability laws so you get into trouble if you loan someone a gun and they do something bad with it? I better stop lending other tools to people just to be safe
