OK - this ain't CCW per se - more general firearm's useage. Guess it could be equally viable in General Gun Discussions.
Since getting step daughter to range and thinking on various factors after recent situations like NOLA - post Katrina - I am ever more of the opinion that we should ensure that our family members are 'aux fait' with most of our platforms.
I know for instance that my wife (and now to a degree step daughter) can operate usefully the AK. They also know enough to manage most handguns, tho semi's of full size still a bit of a challenge.
Strikes me as important that if need be - we could thrust this that or the other gun at them - in a hurry - with some ammo - knowing that they will not be finding problems over the mechanics - or the actual useage.
I will therefore be adding in some assorted platforms on future range visits and even if that proves difficult to achieve sufficiently - running thru at least the op' mechanics - to achieve a good understanding.
If luxuries permitted, I will also cover failure drills too and field stripping.
Me paranoid?? Nah!!!
