I understand the precautions that some people have about letting strangers into their home, but sometimes you have to sell something big and there is no way around it. In college, I sold some stuff on craigslist and there weren't any problems. Keep your head on a swivel.

Bought a new leather sofa to put in my bedroom. When it was delivered, three guys brought it up the stairs and into my bedroom. I had completely forgotten that I keep three rifles on my bedroom gun rack above the bed...an AR-15, a shotgun, and a .22 rifle. These guys had been eyeing the house as they moved through it and I could immediately see that their three sets of eyes all found my artillery at the same time. One asked, "Are you a hunter?" I replied, "No." "Then what are those guns for?" What out missing a beat, I blurted out, "Those are my anti-theft devices." Unless I buy more furniture, I don't believe I will have to worry about seeing those guys show up uninvited.

I wouldn't worry about it. The fact that he's a teacher, should give you some peace of mind. Also that the little girl knew what a Benelli was is a good sign to me (he's teaching his kids right) I probably would have tried to put together a trip to shoot some clays, I'm always looking for someone to shoot/hunt with.

Hey, you learned a lesson via a little girl and her teacher daddy. Next time you'll know to be more cautious, but I'm 99 & 44/100th sure you got away clean on this one. Sleep well...

ret has it spot on. They even named the family pooch Benelli.......gotta love it.
Yes, be a little more careful in your forethought as to who comes over to your home, but a middle-skool teacher with two young'uns in tow isn't a red-flag IMO.

I agree with this as well.

Pretty much anyone can find out for example that I am an instructor for the MN carry permit. After all I advertise to drum up busniess. That said it pretty much means I own and probably carry guns. It goes with the territory and I don't spend a lot of time worrying about it. It's never been an issue.

If someone wants to steal my garbage cans and a couple of half empty bottles of windshield wiper fluid they can have at it. :) If/when I have a garage sale, I put things I don't want people to see or I don't want to sell elsewhere.
