You see it in movies, sometimes. Like Mission Impossible (I forget the number, 2?), where Tom Cruise gives a quick training course on his Beretta to the female lead. Is there any rationale to giving away an extra gun you might have to someone who has little/no experience during a self-defense incident? You would still have a long rifle, or primary pistol, but give away an extra long gun or BUG. Say in a catastrophic event, like Katrina. You have to go look for food/water and leave loved ones/friends behind in shelter/safety, would you leave an extra gun with a wife, kid, friend, etc who has no real training/experience. All hypothetical here. I'm watching too many movies today.
