Trouble is, if the fight doesn't occur there, then you're separated from your defensive weapon.you know the layout best so pick a room youd like to fight from/in most and "stash" your weapon there.
IMO, one should not be separated from the lone defensive weapon. In terms of stashing multiples around the house, I think it's reasonable. Make them items that you train with, that can make a difference. They might even be simple, "normal" objects in the room. If you're well-trained and talented enough, that can dramatically expand the number of available weapons in a given space.
First, fix the door/frame. Making it relatively noisy and tough to enter can buy you time, and that might make all the difference.... it made me realize that I spend about 90% of my day in the living room, in direct line of sight of a flimsy condo front door ...
This is why many people simply wear the primary handgun on them, when around the home. Once you're in the habit, it's a part of you. You can openly carry, or you can continue to conceal. But, there's no reason you need expose yourself unprepared and unarmed.So when I open the front door there is never a weapon within 50 feet.
I think most would agree that it's practical to have a life-saving defensive tool near you at all times.Is it practical to stash one of my HD fire arms in the living room/dining area where I spend almost all my time?
Being aware of the relative uselessness of a weapon that's 50ft or more away from you is wisdom. Failure to see that as a risk is problematic.Or is this paranoia on my part?
