Both of my boys have their own Colt SP1's. A whole kit. Rifles, Colt Scopes, Colt Bayonets, Colt Mags, Colt Bipods etc. I have spent a lot of time and money putting these together for them. Their ages are 14 and 9. I keep their rifles at my house.

The boys want to show their Mom's boyfriend their rifles. From what I know he is some type of gun person also. The issue is if I send the rifles with the boys the rifles will be out of my possession for about 2 weeks. I don't want to be a hardass but I'm just not comfortable with letting the boys take the rifles for a show and tell.

Step away from the pipe! You have to be kidding me. Sounds like you know next to nothing about the 'Boyfriend'.

I'd send photos.

6 out of 6 ARFCOMMERS agree, dont send the boys with the rifles to the new guy's house.

This thread is over. Next.

There's your answer right there. I wouldn't do it.

Or he might be a Kool-Aid drinker and gaffle that shit.

Hell no, you might never see the rifles again.

Not just no but HELL NO!

Makes me feel better. I was worried I was being to much of a hardass about it.
Link Posted: 2/3/2006 9:24:52 AM EDT
Not a good idea. The weapons are yours until the kids are 18, right? Then the liability for how those weapons are used is yours until the kids are 18. The weapons should stay with you until the kids are 18.
Link Posted: 2/3/2006 9:26:20 AM EDT
What were we talking about???? Oh yeah, NO, NO HELL NO>
Link Posted: 2/3/2006 9:27:55 AM EDT
Just a side note, and I am not saying this would happen because I have no idea of your
situation with you're ex
But to send a 14 year old with a AR , social services would be all over that if a call was evermade by the boyfriend
Link Posted: 2/3/2006 9:28:20 AM EDT
As long as you make him promise to send back the pawn slip with your boys.
Link Posted: 2/3/2006 9:28:32 AM EDT
Depends on where you live. I get arrested if my kids take firearms out of the house.
Link Posted: 2/3/2006 9:29:01 AM EDT
Nope, not really... no.

Not unless you know and trust the boyfriend. Tell them they can shoot boyfriend's guns when they are with their mom.

Take pictures... Keep the guns at home...

Look, I've got an idea.
Be a stand-up dad and don't disappoint your kids.

This may be a little distasteful/uncomfortable, but at the same time you oughta know what kind of guy this is hanging around your kids, so think RECON.

Write a short note to the mother's boyfriend...

Hi Bob,
The kids are really eager to show you their rifles, and have been asking to take them over to their mom's house. I don't particularly have a problem with this, however, I can't legally let these out of my posession, especially into the hands of minors. I understand you are a firearm enthusiast yourself? If so, I'm sure you can understand.

That said, I and the kids would really like it if we could get together at the local range, I think we should make a day out of it and let the kids have some fun. Let me know if you'd be interested and what days might be good for you.

Take care,
John



Hey, you'd be there to supervise, the kids would be ecstatic, and you'd get an idea if your kids are safe aound the guy. Might find out he's real decent, who knows?

Their mother won't let me near the boyfriend. I know he used to go to school with her and he has been employed by the same company for a long time.

She broke up with her former fiance because he and I liked each other. And he refused to particiapate in the hate speach she would say to my boys about me.

Mr. Bama,

Only you can make a concrete decision. No matter how many Nopes, Yeps, only you can answer your question. The balls in your court.... If it were myself, the answer would be NOPE.
Link Posted: 2/3/2006 10:08:32 AM EDT

Looks like it's her fault your boys wont get to show off their rifles. Seriously. At 9, he may be too young to understand, but the 14yo son would probably get it.

Link Posted: 2/3/2006 10:26:19 AM EDT
Do you trust the Ex with the guns? Do you let the boys take them anywhere else, like Grandma's house? If the boys are responsible and the Ex is somewhat trustworthy(in regards to guns and gun owners that is) then I would consider it. Do you think either of the adults would confiscate/get rid of the rifles? Think back to when you were their age, showing off is the best!

Let them take the kit, NO RIFLE. Ask Mom what she thinks, I assume she will be in charge of said rifles while they are out of your house.
She says no its a deal breaker she says yes she is willing to assume control I would rethink the rifles one at a time.

Hey Bama, you sound like a pretty decent guy if you were able to deal, so to speak, with her past boyfriends... So I tell you what...

Be a stand-up Dad, write that note, include your phone number, and ask him to call you...
tell the 14yr old not to tell mom, and have him slip it to her boyfriend.

Now either the guy does a guy thing and goes shooting, fuck whatever nonsense she spews forth... or he tucks his tail and tells the kids, "sorry, your mom is a twat."

Either way, you're the hero to your kids. That is ALL that matters!



*bonus is possibly befriending another one of her boyfriends, I'd bet that would really ruin her friggin' week! Go for it dude!
