From Norseman: “When I was a young man and I was graduating from 8th grade, my Grandfather took me aside and gave me three gifts and some advice that I have headed ever since. He told me that a man always kept three things on him. A knife, a watch, and silver in his pocket. As he said this to me he gave me one of his own small pen knives, my first “nice” watch ( a Timex I was only starting high-school at the time ) and Silver Barber 1906 .50 cent piece. The watch is long gone but the pen knife is still kept safe in my dresser caddy and the coin is in my wallet to this day.”
A Smith & Wesson 642 Airweight in .38 Special is Norseman’s firearms addition to his grandfather’s advice. I have the same revolver and have found it to be reliable and accurate at close ranges.
Any of you guys receive advice from your grandfathers regarding daily carry?
