Default Lending/borrowing

Just wondering what your guys thoughts are when it comes to either lending out your own or borrowing someone else's firearms are?

I don't do it unless I'm right there with them. Like a dove shoot and my buddy doesnt have a shotgun or something. Or we are at the range and shooting a pile of each others guns.

That makes sense. But from that, I'm guessing you wouldn't let them take any of your firearms to the range alone with out you being there even if they bought a box(s) of ammunition for it?

Just to try an clarify that one since it could be taken either way, do you mean if they pass theirs off to you and let you hold/use it while at the range or just as a "you've gotta bring mine back they way it left to get yours back" type thing?

Never, ever, ever!!! I let a buddy borrow my Marlin 60 some years ago. He dropped it in the sand w/ the action open. Did I say never!!! He is no longer my buddy.

Not only that, some people might sell it or do something stupid with it. If that happens, I'd guess that they would come looking for THE OWNER. I do not need that kind of hassle, and my guns are worth too much to guess what someone else did to them while not in my care. But if everybody brings a pile of guns, sure, we share.

Well.....I don't think very many people would of been to happy about that one either. I know I probably would of made him clean it out to the point it was like new.
But now, what if you where both at the range, would you let someone send a few slugs down range?

If your worried about them selling your/doing something stupid with your firearms, that can't be that trustworthy of a friend?

I've let guys try a few rounds at the Range. I ended up selling my Cetme to a friend that had to have it. We set up 10 clays at 100 yards and I busted all 10 w/ 10 rounds in about 7 seconds. All he could say was "Wow". After he tried it he was hooked.

I have a buddy that was moving, so he left his rifles w/ his sister. Her boy friend sold them to a pawn shop. That was not pretty.
