WAP 073: KIDS, GUNS AND HOLSTERS – HOW TO PREVENT YOUR KIDS FROM SHOOTING YOU OR THEMSELVES
By now I’m sure everyone has heard the story of pro-gun Floridian, Jamie Gilt getting shot by her 4 year old son while driving down the highway. This story really hit home for me because like Jamie, I am very pro-gun, I have a son that is 4 and I tend to carry off body a lot so, in a alternate universe I could see this being me. So we wanted to dive into this story along with an article written by Melody Lauer called, “When Baby Reaches For Your Gun,” and we have an open discussion on guns, holsters, carry techniques and gun safety. Enjoy!
JOIN US TODAY AS WE TALK ABOUT:
- Eric gets some new EDC glasses
- Does off body carry increase the likelihood of you being shot by your toddler?
- My childhood idols weren’t Barney or Sesame Street characters – They were Arnold Schwarzenegger, Steven Seagal and John Claude Van Damme
- Kids are curious about guns – I know I was when I was a kid
- Maybe it’s a good idea not to have a round in the chamber when you are at home
- The 3 reasons why you should always keep the gun on your person
- A good holster should do three things
- If you buy a new holster make sure you practice with it – you can practice at home, it doesn’t have to be at the range
- If you do carry in a bag then treat that bag as if itself was a gun
- According to Matt Best, Eric is the perfect grey man that no one would expect to have a gun
- Is it time for a tactical man purse? If we add sippy cups to it will it make it more “grey man”?
- How can we turn our kids curiosity into an opportunity to teach our kids to respect the gun
