My dad and I took the CCW course a few weeks ago. We got the the certificate in the mail and sent in for more paper this week. (Background checks, etc.) We have to wait til the proper paper work comes back now to go and get our license. Anyway, I was thinking about a handgun to buy myself.
Now this next part may seem scary or inappropriate to some, but I was thinking about getting one my kids could shoot if they choose to. My 2 oldest ones are teenagers and my youngest one 10. The youngest may be the only one interested. My reason for getting one they can shoot is so that I can be the one to teach them gun safety. I prefer my kids didnt learn it from someone else. I have some rifles and can teach them that way. Its never been an issue until I took the course and decided to buy a hand gun.
Many a kid near and around us have been hurt bad or worse. Most of the time it was because they were curious and never knew how to respect a handgun or rifle. But back to my point, I may have to consider a .22 at first then maybe later buy a more powerful gun latr.
