    Great Father's Day present

    In preparation for going away to college, this weekend my daughter took the basic concealed carry course, joking that it was a Father's Day present for me. Not too far off! We're planning on her taking their advanced course soon - maybe that will be my birthday present from her.

    She got 100% on the written part, and every shot (L, R, Both) was in the target's torso circle or head. Yay! At 18 y/o, the course won't do much good for a VA permit of course, but the Idaho sheriff in her college town may choose to issue one. 'Course then I would have to get her a new LCP...

    And Lima - the nice lady at the range (carries a Kahr) and her husband (the real tall guy) were delighted to hear of your reason for not visiting them for awhile!

    its nice to know kids can think, and act upon their own instincts to learn to protect themselves.

    Good for you and your daughter
    Sometimes I wonder who the old man in the mirror is....

    Lord, Grant me a good sword and no need to use it.

    I can not think of a better Fathers Day gift than the comfort of knowing that your child has chosen to take their safety into their own hands. Sure beats a tie.
