We still did that in the early seventies as twenty year olds!

We still do that in 2018. Not on the freeway, but for anyone who hunts, has EVER been on a farm or uses a truck for anything it was actually made for this is very common.

I've been around enough to realize such a thing would be very shocking/horrifying to anyone who lives on the right or left coast or any other place where carrying a holstered handgun would be uncommon enough to get a second glance. But in a very large part of America this is all still very normal.

I'm not saying either way is right or wrong. I am saying different regions of the US are now very diverse in what is locally considered "normal".

Speaking of toy safety, this thread brought back an old memory. I got a Mattel Dick Tracy Shootin' Shell Snub Nose .38 with Shoulder Holster for Christmas 1959 (or 1960) and my Dad, my brother and I would use it to play Russian Roulette. We'd put extra Greenie Stick-um Caps on the cartridge to increase the power and the bang and passed the revolver around. Talk about teaching your kids gun safety.
You knew the job was dangerous when you took it, Fred.

Doh!

Yep, had the metal cap pistols when I grew up. Of course, it was in the 'burbs so not much chance of them being mistaken for real guns.

We used to practice throwing our pocket knives to see who get them the deepest into wood. Remembering that from the good ol days I bought my daughter a set of throwing knives two Christmases back. She loves them and is a way better shot than me!

Very cool!
