Strong rule of a fighting Soldier like myself. Rule 1 Move with it always. Rule 2 Never out of arms reach, even in the shower … just cover it and do extra maintenance, Rule 3 Make sure safety is always on and conduct random period ic eyes on to make sure, Rule 4 Access during sleep is paramount after home alarms / perimeter is secure, Rule 5 Never assume that any day especially holidays are safe- any day is an opportunity for a criminal mind.
Not more than an arms reach. The HH6 and I do not any longer have young children in the house hold. So we stage up
Sounds like you have the plan right there
No more kids here either but Will comes over with dad. He’s 2 yrs old. My son knows/owns/carries firearms so he always calls first to tell us he’s on the way. We have a kid proof process we go through, guns in safe (not the ones on our bodies), kitchen cabinets locked, trucks and tractors out in the middle of the living room…
