Maybe this should be under Strategies and Tactics? I have a gorgeous 7 year old daughter and I'm already getting scared. Started thinking today... what gun is the ideal "cleaning when the new boyfriend comes over" gun? I got a few years to save up for it. And I intend to get his name etched on the brass before loading. So what's your vote for the ideal "Boy Friend Gun" Gold Plated Desert Eagle? Dirty Harry .44 Magnum? Classic 1911? Noisy Cricket? Mossberg 500 (Guess there's no brass to etch there, but... whatever. ) (This is just for fun for you Safety Sallies that have no sense of humor. ) EDIT: This thread is for fun. It's for fathers of daughters (or prior boyfriends) to discuss big guns. THIS IS NOT a parenting thread. THIS IS NOT for all the Cliff Clavin Experts out there who have raised 25 daughters to perfection to come here and tell us, "You know there, uh... Normie.... if you really want to know the best way to keep your daughter from rebelling..." No, we don't. We're talking about guns. We're having a fun discussion about big guns.
