    Day at the University Gun Range

    My son took me and a friend to the university gun range today, yes UNIVERSITY. The friend was from one of 'those states' and had never handled a gun before. After 2 hours of 9mm, 22, and high powered rifles I think we have a new understanding. IMO it is better for beginners to have the satisfaction of metal plates and other targets that give similar satisfaction rather than paper.

    I was surprised, approximately half the students were female. I asked the range officer and it was explained that 50% female is pretty normal.

    The range does basic safety courses and then a self defense course I believe. My son wants to do the classes ... without me pushing. Maybe his friend will follow.

    ...When my eldest son asked me what he should have done, had he been present when I was almost fatally assaulted in 1908, whether he should have run away and seen me killed or whether he should have used his physical force which he could and wanted to use, and defended me, I told him that it was his duty to defend me even by using violence.
