Have to learn to budget somehow. Want the latest video game? Save up. Want a new Beyblade? save up. Want a new Dooney and Burke? Grab the credit card out of DH's wallet...

DH has a shotgun and two revolvers. (sorry, I put pistols, but they are revolvers) He does "cowboy" shooting, hence the revolvers. He also has 8 or so Airsoft guns, ranging from pistols to sniper rifles. Those things look very realistic. He used to play on the weekends, with other adults, out in the desert (in Vegas) and then later, in the swamp/woods (FL).
I have a handgun.
DS has a .22 rifle. He started with a Daisy Red Ryder air rifle and no, he did not put his eye out.
We've all taken safety courses at the gun range we joined. All the guns (except the air soft/RR) are in locked boxes in a gun safe, unloaded. Ammo and cartridges/magazines are in another locked box in the safe.
Can't get any more ammo for it right now, though, so we haven't been shooting. All the sporting goods stores and Walmarts are staying empty. One employee told us that there are a couple of people that come in every day, and as soon as they put it out on the shelves, someone is buying it up!
DH found some at Shooters, but their current rule is "to buy ammo, you must buy a gun" and you can only buy 2 boxes! They are the only place in town with ammo!
For those who think that the only way to protect people is to get rid of "assault" weapons, watch this kid. He beats the "assault" weapon with a rifle.
This kid shoots cowboy shooting, and was beating adults--competing as a kid. So, the adults changed the rules so he couldn't compete against them as a kid. Sooooo...he shoots as an adult. And beats them.
