    That Rick is why I make sure my Oxy-acetylene cylinders are not left empty - they are sorta concealed but might be needed one day

    I am not of the school of thought that says all guns must be unloaded and locked up at all times. Most American families grew up around guns, and there were few "gun accidents" in the days when guns were part of every day family life.

    Since my kids were old enough to comprehend what a toy gun is, I've been teaching them the difference between toy guns and real guns. And since they were old enough to safely shoot a real gun, they've been doing so. And I've spent many nights tearing down my different guns, showing them how they work and function. And since we homeschool, they also memorized the basics of gun safety from an early age.

    My kids are not "curious" about guns. They know them and how they work, and they know what they are for.

    That's good enough for me Brian and actually - while (I hope not) seeming to call you out, was curious! ''Just checkin''

    I much prefer to hear that a family is, including kids, made totally gun savvy - it is what should be always the case but sadly is not. We often do not give kids enough credit for reponsibility - and yet when brought up to respect guns and understand them - they are possibly more responsible than many adults.

    Now - do NOT forget tomorrow, ya hear!

    No problem. But its a pet peeve. Pediatricians now routinely ask intrusive question about guns in the home, among other things, and the media and LEO have pretty much criminalized the once routine practice of having a loaded firearm within reach in every home.

    I grew up with a loaded pump action Mossberg .22lr propped by the back door to shoot groundhogs. My mom killed plenty of them. Never thought twice that my parents might be criminally negilgent for doing so.

    And never thought twice about touching it! We knew better. There was this old fashioned thing called d-i-s-c-i-p-l-i-n-e in our home growing up, and it continues in my own home today.

    I've been in homes where the parents would never dream of leaving a loaded gun unattended. Its sad, really. Its not the kids' fault.

    Ahh - ''discipline'' Brian - yeah - a fast disappearing commodity.!

    As for the ''inquisitors'' too - well that yanks my chain to think any medic etc - even insurers, have the nerve to probe as to whether we own guns and keep them at home. None of their damn business I say - and would choose to remind them of 2A and RKBA.

    About 4 or 5 months ago (I was 30) I forgot my gun at home on my bed. I had just changed clothes and then went out to see a movie with a friend.. the entire time thinking I was armed. I got home and when I went to go to the bathroom, I reached for it to unholster and... WHAT!?

    I drove 10 minutes to, sat through, and drove back home from a movie, all the while with an empty holster in my pants. I felt the holster the entire time but didn't really realize there wasn't actually anything IN it until I got back home! I was shocked.. minor panic attack wondering where my sidearm was. I guess that means it's a pretty comfy holster.. :D
