    Told to me age 9. many- many years ago,but never forgotten.Your gun is your best friend,it is not only there to protect you if in extreme danger,but also to give you many hours of sporting pleasure & relaxation.Being it is such a special friend,you should always treat it as such,look after and care for it,and never ask it to do anything that you would know to be wrong yourself. If you ever did that,it would break the special relationship you have with your gun,you will have dishonoured , abused, & shamed it,& that knowledge would be past on to any other gun you may eventually own in years to come.Would you really want to treat a true friend like that.?

    I noticed anybody who was taught like that really had a leg-up when they got to boot camp.
    This philosophy is as important for use with a firearm as ammunition.
