Default Being ready against home invasions.

Being that all my kids are adults and out on their own with their families, I have my home set up as to have access to a gun at anytime.
Look at the book on the cabinet under the TV. I also have a book near the kitchen. You can see the front door down the hallway. We have a Pella non shatter glass storm door that stays locked. I have schooled my wife and she is proficient with handguns and would not hesitate to use one if required.

If anything were to happen while I was away, my wife would call me. She has no interest in firearms. Assumes nothing will ever happen because nothing ever has.

I would hate for my significant other to call me.

I had this discussion with my ex. She said she'll just call me if anything happens. I said, "why? So I can listen while you get raped, murdered, or both?"

If your wife pans to call you because she wants nothing to do with guns, please urge her to at least call 911 first.

I suppose it doesn't hurt to have a hidden-in-plain-sight handgun. I mean you have to put them someplace anyway and if you have no kids in the house then what the heck. I am not saying we haven't done the same in an interesting manner but do you really live in fear of a surprise attack home invasion!?

I fear no one, but I don't plan to have a auto wreck either, but I have insurance against it.

We all have insurance but I don't drive with a quick-release four-point safety harness, safety helmet, and goggles too. Just so long as you are fearless. No-one wants to live afraid of one of the 8,000 annual home invasions every year -- that'd be awful.

Remind your wife that assumption is the mother of all f&*kups!

Ever been married? You just can't reason with these women.
