I think the time has come. Just purchases a new 50 cal black powder gun for the boy this Christmas. Looking around I count nine rifles and shotguns and between my wife and I seven hand guns of various calibers. Not to mention plenty of ammo for each. Looking around it appears that rather than get the nice new 1911 Iíd like itís going to be a $1,000 to $1,500 gun safe instead. After I find a place to put it. My wife suggests our bedroom. Now, how many of you have significant others that would suggest that? So the hunt begins the scary part after the cost of course is getting it into the house. Maybe we should work a deal, you help me with mine Iíll help you with yours. Not sure at what count a safe is a reasonable purchase but Iím thinking that any gun not carried needs to be locked up when the house is empty. So for us it probably was at the count of three as my wife carries too. Oh well better now than after they have found their way on to the street.
