So......your advice is to give her a quick lesson in handling a pistol then proceed to drink beer....nice
I think I'm more scared of you
Every one is entitled to their own opinion but not the facts when reading message board posts. I respect your opinion. Maybe I should have posted more detail opinion on my part. Here goes:
I did not say give her a quick lesson. I said make sure she knows how to aim and pull the trigger. Some people catch on fast others take longer If I was doing the training I would match training to the person until they understood safe pistol handling and could consistently aim and hit a target. My recommendation is take training at a certified commercial gun range or hunting club that offers fire arm courses and follow up the initial training with periodic sessions (what ever is required) to be safe with the fire arm and ability to know how and when to operate the firearm. This is a choice and some would do this while others would not. Some take out locations are safer than others and that is also a personal decision as to what resources make people feel safe.
I said have adult beverages to help pass the time. I did not say every body get falling down drunk on beer or anything else while waiting for the shuttle. If that is what a person does when they drink adult beverages or whatever, don't worry about me as I will for sure stay out of their way to the best of my ability.
Personal safety is something every one gets to decide for themselves. Local laws apply. For me, I want to make sure if I leave a friend alone in some out of the way spot, they have the resources they are comfortable with to help them protect themselves if the unthinkable does happen.
