    They learn so fast...

    This evening, Aimee, Alex and I were at a TA truckstop in Willington, CT. It was a little chilly so we all put on our coats and Aimee helped Alex zip his up.

    We walk into the resturant to have our evening dinner. I selected the back corner booth, adjacent to the emergency exit. I sat so I could scan the room.

    Alex took his coat off and I hung it on the peg next to the booth, with my coat. Alex is sitting across from me, next to Aimee.

    He looks out the window, over my left shoulder and says, "Daddy, bad guy..." and points out the window. I turn and look and it is the kind of individual that you would keep a descrete eye on. Nothing going on, not a threat at the moment.

    I sweep my eyes back to center and watch my four year old son, reach into his sweat pants and haul this out....



    Neither of us knew he had the gun. Neither of us want him to have this gun out of the truck.

    I asked him why did he have the gun in his pants. He says, "Cause I might need it...."

    *Sigh* So now we have to pat him down....

    Man, look at that trigger finger! He must be a good observer. Or dads a good trainer...

    a GREAT observer he is, although I did drill him on the trigger finger and the eddy eagle routine...

    Lew - it is amazing what kids learn from us at all ages - even stuff we might not think ''goes in''.

    My son went on to college and then University and always swore that all he had watched me do on lathe and machines in general must have stuck somehow - because he was with no effort top of his class in practical maching work! He'd just stand watching and chatting while I made stuff - guess this was back in his pre and early teens.

    Your Alex sure has picked up some stuff too huh! - best of all - some good awareness - a great start.

    lol. Concealed is concealed.

    Just get him a vest so you know where he'll hide the "weapon".
    There are over 550 million firearms in worldwide circulation. That's one firearm for every twelve people on the planet. The only question is: How do we arm the other 11? (Yuri Orlov [Nicolas Cage] Lord of War)
