My wife's brother-in-law is a really nice guy but either has no common sense or no clue on certain things. He's an electrician and a pretty good one by all the folks who hire him by word of mouth. Some of the things he's done. Ran a tractor for years never changing or checking the oil till motor seizes up. Snowblower drive chain or belt breaks, lets it sit 3 years meantime shovels 200ft driveway. Never had cut a tree down before, first one hits his daughter's car. And many other things. This last one has me and my son really worried/wondering. He's never owned a handgun before, don't know if he's ever fired on. Well he knows I like handguns so when I tell him I was looking to get a small concealed carry pistol he goes and buys a Sig p365. Two months later I asked him how he likes it, he tells me he hasn't shot it yet! Fast forward another 2 months to mothers day get together in MA. He calls me over to his truck and shows me a Beretta 92 he just bought. Still hasn't shot the p365 but carries it when he walks his dog in MA where he doesn't have a permit to do so! He lives in CT and took the classes and acquired CT's carry permit. I try to tell him nicely everything I think he's doing wrong and he just shrugs and rolls his eyes! At that point I hand him the Beretta, say nice gun and walk away. This bothered me so much I had post it here.
