Many firearm owners own more than one. Some people own many. If you happen to own more than one handgun, then here is a simple piece of advice to better protect your home…
Unless you carry all the time in your home, consider keeping your handguns in the several locations where you spend more of your time.
It sounds like common sense, but how many of you do this?
Don’t keep them all in one place in one safe. Here’s why…
IF you ever need to access quickly, you will only be as quick as the distance you are away from your firearm.
While home intrusions do happen and home burglary does happen while residents are home, it is statistically rare for any one person if you average all of us together in our homes. Obviously some neighborhoods and regions are more risky than others, but all it takes is ONE TIME.
If the SHTF, it will be even more important.
Here’s an example…
Most firearm owners most certainly keep one in the bedroom. This may be the most likely place where you might need emergency access to one… in the middle of the night.
While you’re relaxing during the evening, perhaps watching a TV-show in the living room, ‘what if’ this is the time when your home intrusion goes down… Keep a firearm nearby.
Maybe you spend lots of time at a desk at home, or in another room or basement doing a hobby or maybe a shop area, etc.. Wherever it is, if you spend significant time there, and you own more than one handgun, consider keeping one nearby in each location.
