    He came to Meet & Shoots the first couple years, but maybe got to about 1/3rd of them?

    This whole thing really pisses me off. I was shaken when I got the news from a mutual friend yesterday who drove up from INDY to tell me. But now I'm just angry.

    Tragic and stupid way to kill a person that is simply negligent. Bob left behind a family, he was healthy, fun loving, hard working and a very nice person. Because of the stupid act of another he is gone from the lives of his loved ones. No reason for this.

    Is that Cigar Bob in the background? ...
    I don't know about any legal consequences . . . not sure I want to know.

    And yes, that is Bob Anderson, aka Cigar Bob on the far right side of the photo.

    Guess the place where gun owners are frustrated because of the odd gun laws by the government? It's Massachusetts.

    Thank you for posting these clear/concise rules! I've been looking for something this simple and easy-to-remember to teach to my children. They are learning the basics of proper firearms handling with safety stressed as the most important factor. I've been pushing good safety habits with their toy/nerf guns so they learn to treat every firearm (even if it looks like a toy) with the utmost respect. This is a great, simple list of safety items for everyone to easily remember.

    I think it depends on the children's age. All boys play with toys that look like pistols. If you prohibit them to cover each other with muzzles - you destroy the game. Everyone knows that it doesn't mean real death. It's a normal part of any game to imitate something, including shots. When you are a child, you need to get the idea of firearms and its use, later, when you handle real firearms - you learn safety rules.

    These are great rules. My daughters are 12 and 14 and we began with a similar set of rules a couple years back when they shot their first air rifle. Accidental shootings can be 100% avoided if we take the time to teach anyone handling a firearm these basic rules.

    A modern trend among gun owners is to NOT promote children "playing" with anything that resembles a gun, be it a toy or not. Teach them the real rules with real guns from an early age and there will be no undoing of developed deadly habits.
