In this episode, I talk first impressions of my new Black Mamba Holster by Concealment Solutions. For its first time out, I hooked on the holster and went for a 3 mile hike in hot and humid conditions. The results of that test run were impressive.
Ask The Audience:
In this forum post we have a father of three explaining how he raised his children to be responsible with firearms. He has a son who is coming of age (5 years old) and will begin learning about firearms shortly.
His two other children, 9 and 12, were introduced to firearms at 5 years old. When his oldest daughter was 9 (the now 12 year old), he purchased her a 9mm Pistol and Holster of her own. She argued the point that it was her pistol and her responsibility, therefore she should be able to carry it.
The father agreed, with the stipulation that it was only to be carried (loaded) under the supervision of himself or their mother. The youngest daughter (now 9 years old) was granted the same responsibility.
After some concerns were made about the children being too immature to carry a loaded gun at 9 years old, the fathers explains their rural lifestyle. He explains that the farm equipment the children are exposed to is more dangerous than the firearm. He also explains what he expects of his children. For instance, if they decide they want chicken for dinner, they need to make sure they have enough time to slaughter and pluck the chicken before dinnertime.
For my first ‘Ask The Audience’ question, I’d like to know how you feel about children carrying a loaded gun. Is there an age when it becomes appropriate, and if so, what is that age? Does the lifestyle of this family change your feelings towards the situation?
