    This is your Father we`re talking about. You need to make sure he feels safe, secure and protected wherever he is as he is the man who taught you just about everything in life,even how to pee in the toilet. Respect his wishes BUT I`d make sure the weapon had blanks and the home was cleared of live ammo. This is when you need to be close to your Parents,they need you now. This is a Terrible disease,I wish you the Best!!.

    I would file down the firing pin so that it can't reach the primer. Or maybe buy him one of the new "ray guns" like the Kimber Pepper blaster II.

    I'm a physician in the neurological sciences, and I see dementia patients frequently.
    Firearms are a problem.

    In this case, he only has the one revolver. This is an easy fix: cut the firing pin way down so the pistol can be fired.
    His pistol seems to offer him some sense of security.
    With the pistol modified as such, it's a win for everyone.

    It can be very hard to force the issue of moving too.

    If there is any competence at all, court orders can only hold up for a specified period of time, often as little as 72 hours. Then, you've got a paranoid, somewhat forgetful but very angry person on your hands.
    I'm in favor of gun control -- I think every citizen should have control of a gun.

    I disabled my Mom's car, then "waited for parts" for another two weeks. she soon forgot about it, not even missing it when it was removed from her driveway. I'd "borrow" the gun, with his full knowledge, and have the firing pin disabled or removed. Return it, along with a new box of oil/water soaked bullets, and not discuss the gun again. When he stops checking the gun daily, simply remove it from the house.
