    My eight yr old son CCing at the local store!

    My Son & I were walking back to the car in the parking lot when my son asks:
    So did you notice any different about me?
    I Said: No
    He then pulls up his shirt to revel his florescent green toy revolver IWB.
    I was surprise!

    Ill tell you later about the discussion that followed with my son.
    Sorry, I have to get back to work!

    I would do my best not to laugh and then explain why he should not do that again.

    My response?

    Don't show it in public, and make sure your license is up to date.

    Honestly, I don't know what I'd say. I'd probably have a talk with him about how people can get shot by having a toy gun... but perhaps I could use the opportunity to stress obeying the laws by carrying legally, and being prepared.

    It'd be hard for me to give him much grief for what he did. He probably just wants to be like you. I'd probably stress the safety and legal aspect, and do what I could to encourage him to carry when he is of legal age.

    IMO that's a whole lot better than having a child who doesn't want anything to do with guns.

    My 3 year old carries everything IWB! But not usually to the store... I agree with Grady on stressing the importance of CCW'ing legally.

    I'd say a pat on the back and a trip to Dairy Queen are in order though!!

    Wow, I hope my daughter does that! What a cute little guy! I would definitely ensure that he knows the dangers involved even with toy guns, and that he should not take his toys out in public. I agree though, it would be so hard not to laugh, and even harder to to encourage the behavior!

    I'd ask him what IWB holster he prefers.
    Seriously, when I was that age, I wore my cowboy guns O/C everywhere. Of course, back then no one was shooting each other, so I was just "cute".

    I can totally relate this. Since I started carrying at home and sometimes having the gun exposed, my 5 yr old son has taken to putting any makeshift item he can find in his waistband. I realized that he was just mimicking me and I laughed to myself about it. I have not bought him a toy gun and probably will not but I will be teaching him about guns and safety for the next 15 yrs at least.

    I would explain to him that he needs to practice ccing at home and never ever take a toy gun to school,and that it sounds like he is big enough to start learning gun safety and safe gun handlinmg skills so when he is a little older he will be ready to handle his first gun,whether it's an airsoft or a bb gun

    I guess I would ask or be curious about what other surprises he is doing that is "like father, like son"...you might not like the answer.

    Did you at least ask to see his license?
