    Thanks for all of your input on this topic guys. I do agree that i need to find a lock box or cable i can attach to the truck. Do any of you have a specific brand of lock box you prefer ?

    Put gun in box, put box into bracket and lock. It locks into bracket at the same time.....

    His wife thinks guns are the devil or something.

    Ask if she would use one to protect her own kids if their lives were in danger. I've seen momma-bear mode come out in plenty that way. I usually try and go the spare tire, first aid route. Can't use it if you don't have it.

    Plenty easy ways to make sure the kids NEVER have access.

    I would not visit a friend like that, he would have to visit Me, or we would meet at the range or somewhere else, when I was a LEO, I always carried, I do not recall visiting anyone asking Me to disarm, except the times I had to interview some incarcerated fool.

    Back when concealed carry in MI was a relatively new thing, the MIL announced that we really needed to leave our firearms in the car when we visited. We gathered up the kids, turned around and drove away...didn't visit again for nearly two years.

    For cheap I like the Makarov in 9x18 or the Bersa in .380. but God help me if I ever let what my gun cost be a consideration of what I carry.

    For inexpensive and great, the Makarov is the best deal in town.

    I started to mention that I went to visit my mother not so long ago. She moved onto church campground and supposedly one of the rules is no firearms on their grounds. I told her we would visit and stay down the street in a hotel.. my mother was not happy understandibly but she relented and told me just not to go flaunting them. I sometimes open carry where it is legal...

    Anyway I got to talking to an aunt who also lives there who I knew was gun friendly tho and a minister. I asked her about their safety because they were always talking about illegal immigrants running around nearby. The aunt said not to worry many of the residents were armed as was the church secretary and the minister or the little church on the campgrounds that they attend... The aunt said the one thing she needed currently was a shotgun as they had given all their long guns to their children when they moved to the camp grounds.

    IMO, when i carry concealed, i dont tell anybody. I go to peoples houses that dont like guns, but they dont ask, and i dont tell LOL. If they do ask, I say, "Can you see one"? They say no, so i reply dont worry about it.
    So Officer, why did you shoot my client 8 times? Uh, the magazine ran dry.

    Ok, i havent told anyone about this besides my wife. and that wasnt by choice. i was younger and use to live in a house that i found out there was a mass murder there. bargain house my ***. but there was alot of messed up stuff happening. my mom could sense stuff going on but she never actually saw. she just fealt it and heard the noises. it started by my room dropping in temperture. not much at first. just like 10 or so degrees. id hear noises. like walking around my room. as time would pass id wake up feeling like something siting on my chest. i couldnt move. i swear once i had a hand wraped around my ankle and jerked me out of bed. i would wake up with marks on varies parts of my body.

    That could be handy in the summer months.

    As far as the cost of guns go, the best buy (IMHO), is the CZ82, S.O.G. has them for
    $189.95, it fires the Makarov 9x18 mm round, and comes with 2, 12 rnd. magazines.
    I have a Bulgarian Makarov, a Polish p-64, & the CZ82, they all fire the same round.
    The p-64 is unpleasant to shoot, heavy trigger pull & recoil, ( can be helped by hammer
    & recoil spring replacement).
    The Makarov & the CZ82, are about the same as far as accuracy, and comfort is concerned.
    The CZ82's grip is a little thicker due to 12 rnd. magazine, ( the Makarov, 8 rnds.), the
    CZ82 has a better trigger,( IMHO).
    Also the CZ82 & the P64 qualify as Curio & Relic, the Makarov does not.

    Why buy a Highpoint when you can have a CZ-82 ???

    I noticed that his being haunted caused him to be a bad speller, too. Who woulda thunk it?

    This thread got me to thinking, although i've never done it, for thoes of us that carry a 1911 why not just take the slide off, remove the mag. and put it in your pocket ??
