If you're going to carry a gun, you have to be responsible for it. The woman kept a loaded gun within the reach of a 3 y/o child...what could possibly go wrong? :rolleyes:
Mossberg 500 SP: $310-$340 from a dealer
The Mossberg 500 is the top selling pump action shotgun in the USA. It is available in many different barrel lengths and stock configurations. Shown is the Mossberg 500 pistol grip model. Pistol grip shotguns may look cool, but are only fun for a little while. You will be glad you went with the rifle butt stock instead. Aftermarket accessories galore! There is also a 510 Mini version great for smaller shooters in .410 or 20 gauge. The 510 Mini has a 18.5 inch barrel and weighs only 5 pounds!
I think its best to start early to familiarize too. But I would never leave a handgun around loaded. And never show it/them off. And I wouldnt leave kids that young alone either. I agree that just because somebody can have children, doesnt mean they should have children. This is how we breed common sense right out of the gene pool.
Reminds me of voting. Too dang many idiots just dont have a clue (raised by parents who shouldnt be parents). We are engineering common sense out of the voting process. This is how we get clueless "leaders" and thus lose our liberties and our constitutional republic as it were.
