Gun Safety Starts Early
Our ancestors were all riflemen in some form. Unfortunately we gotten so far away from that. Kids today can't just walk out of their homes and go out and shoot a .22 rifle. Instead they're stuck inside playing with an X-Box or something like that. Without the opportunity to practice we lose the chance to become proficient and comfortable with a weapon. If we can't become comfortable with a weapon we can't pass that skill along to our children.
When it comes to buying a weapon for personal protection a person must be comfortable with their purchase. Fleming said,
This week we had a couple come in and the man wanted to buy his wife a .45 and his wife was hesitant. If she doesn't think she can handle a .45 maybe buy her a .22 then maybe work her up to a .380 then on up to a .45 when she is more comfortable and physically capable of handling a larger caliber.
A KPEL NewsJunkie called in and asked if ammunition had a 'shelf life' and Fleming replied,
I routinely shoot surplus ammo through my machine guns that's dated 1945...If you keep ammo in a dry well ventilated environment it will keep pretty much indefinitely.
