3. Active Weapons at the Ready
There are two types of weapons when you think about it: Stored weapons and ready weapons.
If your home’s security plan includes a firearm, you better make certain that it’s a “ready” weapon, not a pistol stashed in the back of your master bedroom closet. The seconds it takes for you to get to and ready your weapon for defense could make all the difference.
With that said, ready weapons present an array of safety and access issues that you need to consider very seriously.
We’ve posted lots of great hiding spots in the past. These are excellent ideas in certain households, but not others (especially if you have children in the house). The best place to carry a “Ready Weapon” is in a holster, on your person.
