    Opening the safe to pack a bag for the range is a one-off task that demands my undivided attention. Alternatively, the daily on/off might happen when I'm tired, distracted, etc., and that's where mistakes are made.
    Very good self-recognition... It's all about routine and the safety priorities that work for you in the situations you're in.

    But, also remember the basics at all times. We are strict about routine, but that can leave "training scars too". Sometimes, you need to have things shaken up a bit to challenge yourself to use your training and cognitive abilities to overcome.


    Also... little ones are never too young to begin the journey of learning safety.

    It's helpful to have your bedroom gun be just that, your bedroom gun. You can keep it locked there in one of these:

    That's neat - well done. Did you install it yourself, free?

    I have some "things" like that around our homes, but I'd like to make them more robust. I might have the ability, but I don't have the time... I've always been shy to hire contractors to install such, thinking then they know my "secrets" lol... ya know? Plus, I'd want it to look spectacular..

    Not good for some firearms to stay in the holster wears off the finish .
    This.


    Come in, pull holstered pistol off my belt (iwb) and place on night stand (or high up in reach if children are present), remove knife/mag pouch as i remove belt, hang belt on hook, drop pants, go to sleep. Reverse process when i wake up. I only carry one model of pistol currently, so its easy as pie
