    Best answer: I moved your question to the Hunting section because you are more likely to get answers from responsible gun owners here.

    I agree with the other answers so far and your only choice is to secure the weapon by locking it away.

    If you want the weapon to be available quickly then you can use a safe, box, or cabinet with a push button combination lock. The items are available from large sporting goods stores and locksmiths/stores that sell safes. You MUST ensure your child cannot know or guess the combination.

    When our son was sufficiently old (about age 14) we started teaching him to be responsible with firearms. When he turned 21 we had him take a Concealed Carry class. He has never had an accident with a firearm.

    I am unfamiliar with but the absolute basics of semi auto pistols, having only a passing familiarity with a 1911. However, I am much familiar with a revolver (specifically single action). I do not trust myself w/ a semi auto due to my infamiliarity, but am confident with a revolver, having handled and shot them for years (mainly a .22 and .38 special). With training and practice, could a SA revolver in .38 or .45 (or even .22) serve as a carry sidearm ?

  • If you hear a gunshot, then duck real quick, can you dodge the bullet?

    Best answer: How do you know the bullet is headed your way? There's something of a tale from the Old West. It was said that if a person saw the powder smoke coming off the muzzle of an 1873 Springfield .45-70, they could actuallt throw themselves out of the path of the bullet because the velocity was so low.

    Best answer: How do you know the bullet is headed your way? There's something of a tale from the Old West. It was said that if a person saw the powder smoke coming off the muzzle of an 1873 Springfield .45-70, they could actuallt throw themselves out of the path of the bullet because the velocity was so low. I don't know how true THAT was. I guess it would depend upon how far the shooter was, plus the .45-70 round, as it was loaded for the U.S. Cavalry only had a 55 grain powder charge. So it's possible that a 55 grain charge pushing a 405 grain bullet out of the muzzle may have only had 1,000 to 1,100 feet per second muzzle velocity

  • Advice for a first handgun purchase?

    I m an almost 21 year old college student in AZ where the gun laws are pretty reasonable. I live in an apartment complex, and I work a pretty low-paying job so my budget is kinda limited, even though I ve been decent at saving. My only experience with guns is shooting my grandad s rifles (a .22 and a .30-06) and a .22 revolver. Most of my family consists of democrats, so our views on guns are pretty different. therefore my exposure is kinda limited. Regardless, I m a good shot with that revolver. I m looking for something versatile. Able to basically do home defense and CC (you don t need a license to carry here), but at the same time not be too small or recoil too much. Also keep in mind, I m pretty busy with school and work, so I won t be able to go out shooting all that much until I graduate. I plan on taking care of it after shooting it, but I can t devote hours and hours every week to practicing and maintaining it until I m done with school. My first instinct would be a used revolver of some kind or maybe a Glock. When I can, I m going to the range to see what I like better. But in the meantime: any advice?

    Does it unlock? Does it remain locked? I'm thinking of this because I'm a prepper and I'm wondering if I ran out of the batteries would I be able to open the safe. Also wondering because what if in a self defense scenario, I hear a bump in the night and then I try to unlock a safe with home defense guns but it turns out the batteries ran out the day before. These kind of situations are why I'm asking this.

    I have a Lee Enfield that is dated 1943. It is stamped "No.1.Mk.III*" It was made in India. My question is, everywhere I looked the only thing I could find were posts about SMLE No.1.Mk.III's. No where on mine does it say SMLE. From what I can tell, it looks more like an SMLE than any of the long Lee's, but I'm no expert. Can you please tell me if it is just less common than the SMLE or if maybe it's a mistake from the factory. Anything helps. Thank you. Pictures included.
