OK - this is contentious perhaps and hardly a new subject in many ways - many folks quite possibly disarm (well - divest of gun and rig off body when at home). OK - you live in the middle of nowhere - but is that somehow sacrosanct?
I am thinking however of the oft mentioned statement - ''ah but - I have guns stashed everywhere and one is at least a mere few seconds away"!
I contend that, the safest place for your carry piece is on your person - all the more so if you are way younger than me and have kids around. Second to that is - a ''few seconds'' might be critical. Count to five slowly and imagine what could happen in that relatively short time!
Another factor is ...... avoiding that possibility of reach down to where Rosco usually lives, only to find .. whoops .... he ain't there!! Suddenly it's a real bad day!
I am as some know a devotee of all day carry regardless - and tho I work from home and am stuck in my office most of the day - I am never without my friend. I guess I am always trying to promote dedicated carry - it is my way ... tho for sure no need to inflict that on everyone else, I know. JMHO - no more.
Point is - how do we know, any of us .... when something will go down? Tomorrow? Next week? Next month or year? Hopefully never.
Who knows, I sure don't. But I plan to be not having to rush and fumble for a ''house gun'' if Murphy arranges for an unexpected visit from some bad guy! I want the best chance fate can deliver and that means Mr SIG is there - from getting up to going to bed!
All of course - just this old man's 2c :wink:
