  •  There is no substitute for parenting (1+ / 0-)

    My sibling and I had to take care of ground hogs. There were a number of rules in place that reduced the potential for problems, one of which, was if we were squabbling neither one of us was allowed out of the house, until we had mutually settled whatever we were fighting about.  

    Disputes got resolved pretty quickly with/without parental involvement.

    Another is that there were two of us and only 1 rifle. We were taught to always be together, literally touching, side by side, before a bullet was ever loaded.

    Honestly, I can't even imagine ever dropping a firearm. But then again we didn't carry it with us every where we went.
