    No doubt!

    I always figure if one of my guns is used in a crime - I'd get all CSIed by the pet DNA in my guns.:evil:

    I had a long haired had gsd that as a pup went to a reenactment. I just had shoulder surgery and was watching my troops in battle. We were posted behind an artilary battery of 3 5 in guns, he sat at heel during both incoming and out going fire just watching.

    A couple of years later my wife had a hard time keeping him with her as I went off with my cav company. Near the end of the battle I went down, he broke loose, ran to me and laid down on top of me. What a great dog.

    Several years ago I used to leave my SP101 in 357 magnum sitting on the bedside table. This table happened to be right where the first rays of sunshine would creep through the window and create an irresistible warm spot for a cat to sit in. On a Saturday I walked in the bedroom about 8:00 a.m. and found my cat Leonard comfortably laying on the table with his paw over the loaded revolver, napping peacefully. This would have been a great picture moment, but he had managed to push the gun over far enough that the muzzle was hanging off the table. And of course as all cats do, as I started walking towards him to make the gun safe and out of the way, and remove Lenny from the table he shouldn't be on, he stood up and sent the gun tumbling to the floor. It left a divot in the laminate floor board, but did no damage to the gun. I did flinch pretty good as it hit the floor.

    I still wish I'd gotten a picture of him using it as a pillow.

    Spookus Maximus The Teacup Panther used to like sleeping on, and sometimes in, discrete gun carriers. Kinda distracting to grab a case and have a black streak catapult out of it.

    AE2B088E-FF17-4BA1-BE9E-A5BA88ECE2CF.jpeg My wife’s cats are the reason I keep my bedside Glock in a holster. They love getting up on my bedside table and laying on top of it. In my mind, I can just see a paw getting inside a trigger guard.

    My two German Shepherds are not fans of firearms, but they make an excellent first line of defense. Most loyal mutts I’ve ever had.

    LOL! I've had that happen with gym bags. My male likes to disappear inside, and then stick his head out and sit there. He tried to do it with my range bag, but I figured I didn't need holes torn in ammo bags/boxes from cat claws, and the occasional spent casing lands in the bag. Probably don't need to expose them to that.

    I am shocked, and pleasantly surprised, at the number of cat owners here. Never would have thunk it.

    We had two Siamese sisters who made it to 18 and 19 years. Great companions whose love and need to be close to us for some reason increased as the temperature dropped. lol

    He would probably shoot me with it, if he had thumbs...........The other cat has no interest in firearms.

    Dog doesn't like guns. Squirrel seems quite comfortable with his. IMG_0835.JPG IMG_0927.JPG

    Well, there’s no guns in the picture, but back in the day I was unable to get out of the house carrying a shotgun without him coming along.

    I’ve always been a dog guy. Never hated cats, just didn’t care anything about them. My wife, however, loves em. Therefore, we have a couple. Lol. Both of them act like dogs and have never really scratched furniture or peed anywhere they weren’t supposed to. My wife scoops the litter box, so I’m good there too.

    You know the old saying, "Dogs have masters, Cats have staff"
    :)

    Pets are my wife's thing.

    We always had cats, never a dog. Finally, in our geezerhood, we got a Wheaten Terror. No mistake, he was a terror when he was young, every squirrel was his sworn enemy. Almost dislocated my arm a number of times when he was on a leash going for them. In this cutesy outside is the heart of a killer.

    So now I'm a dog person and loving it. Funny thing is, we boarded him a few times with a lady who has cats and he's fine with them, no chasing, just wants to play with them.

    Guns would be a no no, fireworks and thunder freak him out.

    Train him to ignore gun fire, and bring back the clays that you miss and you'll really have something!

    I never got very good with shotgunning so a dog like that could pay for itself :)

    He’s been gone two years now. But once he found this place, gunfire never bothered him. Pick up the shotgun and he’d retreat a few feet behind. Put it down and he’d be in front of the nearest trap with the unmistakable expression that said “My turn!”

    He is 10 in the video. When he was younger I’d send the birds a lot further, and he’d pass all the other clays lying in the field to get the one he was chasing. And forget about bringing them back, crushing things in their teeth is what being a terrier is all about.
