    as I think a post about gun safety might provide a good public service to this community. Because I know that a fairly large portion of DK has a gun in their house, and even if they are really really safe, it doesn't hurt to maybe hear it one more time.

    Oh well.

      In this country, outside rural areas, there's a real chance that someone with a gun got all their ideas about handling it from TV and movies.

        have passed the conceal carry class. Seen very experienced people do dumb things. Wish he'd gone on with the other 9 items.

          there would likely be near zero relationship between gun safety and having taken the class.  Most of my class was consumed with anecdotes, amusing and otherwise, that were geared to fill the mandated eight hours of instruction. Aside from the short period on the range required to show you could hit a stationary target a few feet in front of you, and the half hour or so spent actually discussing your legal responsibilities while carrying, little time was spent learning anything safety related.

          -7.38, -5.38 (that's a surprise)

          What is the sound of one hand clapping? Just listen!

          There are no luggage racks on hearses.

            no permit as I have no handgun anyway.

            I've taken hunter safety and sat through a class with my son. One of the most thorough and concentrated safety classes on any subject I've been in. A superbly talented instructor doing an amazing job of putting knowledge into the heads of the students in 10 hours.

            I wish every gun owner would take a hunter safety class.
