    No need for such extreme measures. I always ask folks if they want to try the easy on the wrist version first. Or, if they want the real deal. They know what's coming in all instances. My warning about not dropping the gun is always sternly...

    My daughter, who lives in Coventry, CT, just sent me a text message. The Governor from FL (where I am) just proclaimed that anyone coming from CT, NY, and NJ have to quarantine, upon arrival, for two weeks. So, she cannot come to visit. Worried...

    Kids definitely should not go shooting before being born, that's my rule :kidding: I was case forming and handloading our .243 super accurate ammo for Rock Chucking before age 10; Not every kid's up to that, but some ARE. And for darn sure I was...
