BB Guns at about 6 years
Real firearms at around 8-9
Guns can be safe, but they need to be secured when not in use and kids need to be educated and have respect for them.

Oregon - great Osprey pics! They are harder to capture pics of than you think. Hopefully I can get some good pics of Osprey at Big Lake this summer, they always catch more trout than I do.

I was at Disneyland a week ago and they only looked through bags, which is where my wife still had her Ladybug-no problems. I regretted not taking one of my Caly's.

Handles are way too slick for many people. The large G-10 version may open up a whole new world of "user" Lum models, that would be nice. I will buy a large G-10 for sure when they are available.

Nice knife. I never paid any attention to the previous version of that knife, but with the CF it's suddenly a looker to me? I always thought it looked like a folding boot knife, especially with the mild guards incorporated into the handle design. Cool pic BTW!

My wife and I are on our second Toyota Rav4, nothing but good impressions. The last one (an '01) we drove for 5 years and never had one thing break. Our '06 hasn't has any major issues either in almost four years of service. I totally trust our Toyota.

I would love to see the Caly Jr. return. I know Sal said it would not return, but we have seen the return of some pretty specialized knives, so maybe there is a chance? I don't care if it's VG-10 or ZDP I would buy one. My ZDP Caly Jr. is my wife's second favorite :spyder: , after her ladybug of cou...

Arizona Certified Residential Appraiser - Not too much work right now, I guess it leaves me more time to play with knives? Considering taking a job at a big bank to review appraisals for fraud, but am not sure about having a corporate boss for the first time in almost ten years.

jabba359 - I don't have either of the lights you linked too, they are beyond my needs and budget, but I do have a Fenix TK20 that I have been using for about two months and am really happy with the quality. I would buy a Fenix product with no hesitation. Just my $.02
