I agree with alot of people on the fact that he shouldn't be free handling hots on television. However he does say this is something that should NOT be done by anyone that hasn't had the proper training. But i guess a kid would think he/she is capable of anything, and are immune to anything and would probably do it anyways.
The reason why I initially argued this is because of where iam from. Its quite difficult to locate hots to purchase, none the less to find them in the wild. I think the closest hot to me is the massassauga which is about 3-4 hours away, even if they are found!
very interesting posts, its nice to see some educated opinions other than "hes annoying, and i hate his wife!!" heheh
