as a responsible gun owner, i try to think through all the "worst case" scenarios in my mind when it comes to keeping a HD firearm loaded and ready for use in the home. a few obvious concerns: 1) children or firearm uneducated in the home 2) loaded gun in home when you are NOT AT HOME. (example: the possibility that an intruder might find your HD gun and use it against you) 3) theft of HD gun (with possiblity of it being used for a violent crime) 4) quick access to HD gun in time of need how do some of you address the issues i have listed? are there any others i might have missed in relation to firearm safety and preparedness? i think i have a pretty good system (though none is perfect). but i would love to hear some of your ideas on this.
