Why would your son grab your gun? Should be out of reach of kids to began with, mine is.oakdale0230 said:Yeah I agree. I was thinking about getting one just in case my son grabbed it but I guess it would only take him a min to figure out how to get it off
Why would your son ever be afforded the ability or opportunity to get near your gun, let alone get a hold of your gun, and loaded at that?Yeah I agree. I was thinking about getting one just in case my son grabbed it but I guess it would only take him a min to figure out how to get it off
Curiosity is nothing without opportunity. Teaching it is ok to have opportunity and exercise curiosity is dangerous, because someone else (like a friends parent) may not have a safety.Becuz he's curious. He sees me and his uncle shoot and he wants to but we tell him no all the time
I agree with you on that my gun is either on my hip in a iwb holster where I would feel it if someone grabbed it.or locked in my keypad safe with a combination trigger lock on it.my kids can't get ahold of my firearms if they wanted to.you gotta lock them up good! Every time you hear a story that a gun fell into the wrong hands and someone gets killed the anti-gun media has a field day with it! Saftey is every bodies responsibility.if we wasn't to preserve our sport we must make an example so the anti-gun idiots can't argue their case against us.nukinfuts29 said:Curiosity is nothing without opportunity.

Education and prevention over mechanical dependence.
^^^^^^^^ +1Hey oakdale, why dont you teach your son about guns instead of telling him no. I've worn a handgun since before my son was botn. Started him shooting with a G19 when he was four. He just turned 18 and he's a good shot and he knows and respects weapons. The more you keep him from them the more curious he'll become. Just saying
My daughter could teach you how to field strip and clean a Glock pistol before she was in kindergarten. My teaching philosophy with kids and firearms is anytime they are curious about a gun, they get to handle that gun and listen to a constant stream of safety and use instruction until they get bored and want to leave. Then I test them a couple times before letting them go play.Becuz he's curious. He sees me and his uncle shoot and he wants to but we tell him no all the time
For those who haven't seen it, this is a Siderlock trigger:I don't know about this but I like the siderlock idea....it still keeps the gun a fast draw...and if you don't like it you simply leave it off.the fact of the matter is you can be as safe as you can be but **** still happens... What if the trigger snags on anything while reholstering?clothes anything??i saw a story about a guy who had a AD because his holster was messed up and snagged the trigger. Shot himself in the leg and blew a hole in his car Seat and floor..granted he should have replaced his holster.but what
if it caught on your jacket drawstring or something.you never know. i feel like siderlock would help with this type of issue.but I like glocks because of the history of reliability how they shoot and a lot of other reasons.i just get sketched about carrying one in the pipe without something like a siderlock.and the problem is why bother carrying if your not going to chamber a round? Because if you need to defend yourself chances are you won't have time to rack the slide.i practice saftey like a maniac! My dad drilled it into my head all these years since I was a young kid.but I still like the siderlock for a little added piece of mind due to the reasons I stated above
