I am just about the oldest student at the college I go to. We have a great shooting sports club but do not always have enough personal or club guns to go around so I always bring an extra shotgun to trap shoots for others to use. If someone wanted to borrow one to take home I would be very selective about who I would let do that. When I was overseas my guns were stored at my dad's house and he would ask me before borrowing guns, even ones that he gave me, so I think most people are fairly respectful about even asking.
Seams like once we the people give what, at the time, seams like a reasonable inch and "they" take the unreasonable mile we can only get that mile back one inch at a time.
No spelun and grammar is not my specialty. So please don't hurt my sensitive little feelings by teasing me about it.
