It's for the children

Well, teach them and train them and you are protecting them.

I totally get where the father is at in his mental state.  I would freak if my child had to undergo something like this.  I train with Mrs. 45er and want her to have the ability to defend herself, but if were up to me I'd want to be the one to have to deal with a situation like that.  The mental aftermath is an entirely different kind of thing you have to prepare for.  I don't think 14-year-old has had enough time on this earth to be mentally ready for something like this.  That said, I'd rather it end this way than any other.  That's one quick thinking and smart kid.  Kudos to good parenting.

  2. Excellent training and listening to your instincts, dude! Yeah, the after-effects can suck for all involved...but a reward trip to SixFlags or Disney or somewhere (well...the kid's 14, so maybe Hooters?) should help that right along.

    1. I knew you would agree. I'm impatiently awaiting the trainer air rifle for which you sent the link. I can't wait to get started.

  4. It's good that you are aware, that although you would like to be the one to protect, you are giving your family the tools to do it themselves if need be.

  5. That is exactly it, Brigid. I have no illusions that I am some kind of protector that will always be there. If I am there, then fine. If not, I want my loved ones prepared and equipped. Thanks
