For some reason trick or treaters don't knock at my house.

I got home just as a group of kids were thinking about starting up my driveway.....I reached into the back of the Smart and took out rifle, hand gun and a crossbow......their mother yelled at them to come back and not knock on my door....lol....The wife wasn't impressed.....lol.

Well, kids visiting us in the hopes of getting small sweet treats were disappointed tonight. 

 

WE had lots to give, but with the drizzle, cold temps and extremely high winds, a lot of them didn't bother.  Combine that with the wind knocking down some trees which took out some hydro wires, about 3,000 homes were without power so most homes were in total darkness.  We had several kerosene lamps and battery powered motion activated lights but we still only had 12 kids.  Our normal total is about 150.

 

Oh well,  Looks like I get to snack on some left-overs :thumbsup_anim:

Mine stay locked in the gun safe, and only me and my solicitor have keys to that, and even my solicitor does not know what the key actually fits (it's in case of my death).  I wouldn't dream of "showing" them to anyone like that.  Gun owners get enough bad press as it is.

funny how quickly things change. when I was in high school, (80's) pretty much every pickup in the school parking lot had a gun rack in the back window with at least a deer rifle, and a 22 or a shotgun. now they have to be hidden from sight so as not to frighten anyone.....my gun magazines show up in the mail in plain brown wrappers so that people just think they are porn and I am not some sicko gun freak....

The weapons weren't out of their cases, besides the crossbow, and as I said it wasn't like it was a demonstration to scare anyone, mommy included!    You do not allow your weapons to be out of your control at any point.  Or do you..?   As noted above I also can remember rifles being left in the back windows of pick-ups at school without trigger locks and probably without locking the doors to the truck.  And now you are unset someone safely transports them from vehicle to their safe location within your home just because someone may see you do so....really...? You would have prefered me to leave them in vehicle alone until the sensitive ones left and risked being a owner who allows their firearms to be unsecured .I wouldn't dream of leaving them in the car for any span of time in case they could be snatched and stolen, then who's at fault?....I wonder what you would think when WWIII sets off just 1500 yards down our street when duck season starts...?  There are at least half a dozen rednecks at the stroke of 6:30AM unloading all of their shotguns at he geese on the water waking everyone up to what sounds like WWIII.....there are houses in the next lot besides them, that's within a stones throw of where they shoot, if not closer!    I wonder what you would say about that...?  City folk just live in a bubble it seems and think all firearms are used to rob banks or kill people......most firearm owners are very very responsible people who do not allow their firearms to be out of their reach or touch for any reason unless safely stored away when not in actual use.   It's only the thugs downtown it seems who like to act as you see nightly on the news now a days shooting their targets resulting in great news stories for the morning news stations. It's all we see now each morning here in southern Ontario. Thank you Toronto.....Hmmm...?

Perhaps this is true, but much like a motorcyclist, it's the one percenters who give the rest a bad name.

i get weird looks all the time passing thru a school zone with a shotgun on the atv...bunch of snowflake parents and new age protective genderless bubble kids

 

need to pass that way to get to the good bird spots around here and if i leave right when school is emptying out i get there at just the right time

 

heres a picture of a fellow i met a few days ago while looking for birds
