    I am not sure why you have to link to another firearms discussion forum if you just can post the video that is posted there that you are referring too.

    The answer is, you never loan your firearm to anyone. My gun has never been in anyone else's hands since I've owned it. I bought it new. If you want to look at a gun, go buy your own. I did.

    The OP and the video is about a "West African Soldier" handing a full-auto AK 47 to a monkey. Apart from the issues that the video could be fake and any views gets the YouTuber paid, this post was meant as a joke.

    Since you took this more serious, here is a more serious response to your post. I do hand my firearms to other people at the range, such as to new shooters that I introduce to firearms or to friends, the same way I am shooting other people's firearms at the range if they let me. I am part of a healthy gun culture.

    Now, your post uses the term "gun" in singular form. Do you have only one gun? In this case, that would be the explanation for your attitude. I always carry a loaded firearm. I loan the ones that I do not carry, or swap my Glock 19 that I am carrying out with my Glock 26 if someone wants to shoot my Glock 19 for some reason. Usually, though, people want to shoot my Glock 20 (10mm) or my rifles.

    The common response to people looking for buying a handgun is to go to a range that rents handguns. While there are some ranges that rent handguns, they usually only have a small collection of top sellers and larger caliber fun guns. There are even less ranges that rent out rifles. When it comes to accessories, you are lost. Shooting a firearm at the range that a friend owns is a good opportunity to try out different firearms and firearm setups/accessories.

    By the way, my outdoor range rents full-auto ARs and AKs, as well as a bolt-action .50 cal Barrett.

    bofh - clearly you don't live in Washington. Handing your gun to someone else is an offense here since last year's referendum vote and resulting law. As I recall, doing it twice is a felony. Billionaires spared no dollars (or for some, endorsements), pimps were hired for massive TV advertising of professional quality. Media doggedly pushed their agenda. And they won. With no apparent meaningful resistance by the NRA. The whole thing was pushed as a (warning - hideous phrase coming) "common sense" move to insure proper background checks. If, unlike the common unwashed masses (excluding the clueless unwashed anti-gun people), someone actually read the document, they would be appalled. Aside from criminalizing allowing someone else to hold your gun, if I die, my wife has a short time (days) to register as the owner of all my guns (which have not really supposed to be "registered" or they will be confiscated. Right; common sense. As far as I know, no one has been charged for violating any of the nasty parts of the law. I believe there is some reluctance on the part of rational LEOs to participate in this stupidity. There are a number of issues; confiscation of private property, probably search of the home, registration of firearms, and the insane - you can't let someone else use/possess your gun. I am sincerely hoping this will be contested in cour,t if someone is affected by the law, on constitutional grounds. Hopefully the NRA will spend some of its' money then. Yeah, I know - rant only moderately related to the post. But the video is probably what the antis think of us. The whole thing, not just the mention of letting other people hold their guns, is really annoying for this state. And Bloomborg (surely some of you are Star Trek fans) and friends are doing it again in NE states and others.

    Right, I do not live in WA, CA, NY or any other nanny state. I live in TN, the patron state of shootin stuff. I also know paragraphs.

    I know them too. Sorry about that. I don't know what happened. That is not the way I wrote it. I hate it when people do that.

    I'd be packing up everything I own including my unregistered firearms and taking my ass to a free state where they respect the constitution and my rights as a free citizen.

    Handing a gun to a friend to shoot does not constitute transferring it to them. Where did you get that idea?
