I know we have touched upon this topic quite alot but I am not sure if it has been raised directly.
A couple of recent posts have brought up the topic of gun handling and safety. Reading the responses its obvious that we all have a desire to be safe, but have different ideas as to what that means. In 40 odd years of shooting I have seen some shocking examples of gun handling and probably been guilty of it myself on occasion.
We allow people to have a lethal weapon with NO formal training in etiquette or safety and I am gradually coming to the conclusion that this is wrong.
Would be interested to have a reasoned debate.
