He offered to give me lesson, so my husband and I took him up on it and had our lesson today.
So I did more than touch a gun . He had us shoot 3 different guns, a 22mm with scope & without, a 9mm and a 45mm. To all of our surprise I did VERY well with the 45 :P.
We are considering getting a couple guns when we get our tax refund. Still a bit hesitant with kids in the house though, so we'll see if I actually go through with it. BUT today was a BIG step for me.
With the kids in the house, it takes a mix of education and storage. Purchase a bedside safe that you can only get into, and educate your kids about NEVER touching the guns unless they ask you first. And that you have to be there when they are touching them.
Kids that are old enough to shoot, you should teach them how to protect themselves and the rest of your family from a home invasion.
