Heard From a Friend

I know a guy who's divorced and luckily has custody of his kids. He's a shooter and a reloader and owns several guns, properly put up of course. Anyway, he related to me the other day a conversation he'd had with his ex-wife when she'd come over to visit the kids.

He'd always put up his reloading suplies when she'd come over before, but this time he was tired of putting them away and then bringing them back out when she left (he reloads on his kitchen counter currently). So this time he just left it all out in plain site.

It took her a while, but she finally saw a box of bullets sitting on the kitchen table. "These aren't real?" she asked.

"Yes!" he said.

"What do you use them for?" she asked.

To which he replied, "Target shooting."

"There's a gun in the house?" she asked, as if it were a marauding beast or a slithering cobra.

"Yeah, somewhere, put up." was his answer.

He told me at that point she went silent and didn't say anything else about it. You can probably tell from this brief exchange why the two of them aren't married anymore. And good riddance I say. It's good too that he has custody of the children and can teach his kids proper gun safety and use without being saddled with their mother's liberal bias. Sometimes good things do happen in this world!
