My doc and I both own and ride horses. At the last annual check-up it was discovered that we had both acquired driving / work horses. So we had a :45 minute chat and picture sharing session. The subject of shooting off the saddle horses was covered, his wife would like to do it but previously had no place to do it - now she does. The subject was brought up and thoroughly covered without hesitation or undue inquiry. I went away with the impression that he has a few and is pretty familiar with guns. He's a good guy.
