Firearm lock down

One of the things I am hopefully going to have installed by the end of summer is a light hard case that is tacked (out of sight) down and quad locked. Also a safe box for the camera and lenses. I like to hunt the deadly clay pidgeons and there are some places where being armed can be appropriate. Bown bears and certain large kitties tend to put me on edge. I have yet to need to even issue a warning shot but I do feel much safer when hiking in some areas if armed. Since I do like to bird hunt (not to mention my dogs seem to have a passion for the same--amazing isn't it!) and I use the AS for an occaisional hunt it seemes appropriate to build in a hard case and maybe a wrap chain. It will be tougher to get a fire arm out of that set up than it would be to get a gun from the trunk of a car.

I wish AS had some options for security of firearms, cameras and other ghigh value items. As it is much of that can be custom cobbled. Building the safe's keeps us off the streets!

I have a CWP, and alowed to carry in several states. If you go to Packing.org Concealed Carry (CCW), Concealed Weapon Permit, Concealed Weapon Law : Home , or National Rifle Association - NRA Website Gateway , you might find out more information that may help you. We are allowed to keep firearms in our homes. If you not a convicted fellon. Your trailer, if not your primary residence is consider a second home. I have had to use my weapon for self defense with a robber in Ca. at our previous residence. I also had to scare off three others while they where trying to get a motorcycle of my trailer, while going through Texas. A very important thing about storing is keeping them well hid from others, especially kids. I like mine easy to get to, and ready to fire.

I am one of those folks. OC is annoying, and burns a little, but it's not going to stop me and frankly you'll need more than a frying pan to stop me once you've sprayed me!

carry a pitbull.I think that would deter a person more than an unseen gun. Besides dog bites are easier to explain than bullet holes in a person

Good thought Irwin, a Pit Bull should give me time to get my gun..then I might be alive to explain the bullet holes in the aggressor, rather than the coroner trying to figure out how I died.

A little sado-masochism?

The voices in my head may not be real, but sometimes they have good ideas! or in this case maybe not

Craig......

Thanks for the chemistry lesson. I now have a base from which to look at other pepper sprays.

But the Browning HI-Power is always ready ............................................

I sure wouldn't want to get hit by his load when he ejects it.

Geirs,

We also have dogs. We train them and we train ourselves.
In my view there are no excuses for dog bites or bullet holes.
Only problems to solve.
We practice so will not have to deal with either problem.
We simply do not want to be victims.

Rob

Eyes wide open

Today I served, for the first time, as a Grand Juror.
The point is; I have never considered a license to carry or worried about taking a weapon while traveling. That all changed today.
We reviewed approx. 40 cases and many involved weapons. This was just the first day! We will be listening to case presentations & voting to move forward with indictments for several days. I will probably become more paranoid as each day goes by.
Watching, reading, listening to national news does not give the average law-abiding citizen any idea how much crime and violence is going on in our communities everyday. It is obvious that my family has been living in a bubble.
I came home today with an over-whelming impression that there is a very large and dangerous culture out there and our family has been very fortunate. We are probably long over-due impacting this out-of-bounds segment of our society.
I guess we will be filling out lots of forms as we prepare to: be prepared.

See if there isn't a program where volunteers can ride with law enforcment.
That will also open your eyes.

Mine stays loaded...
Don't keep it in reach,
Don't even keep it inside.
Hollow point only.
Pump.

Guess I feel a little safer knowing its with me,
Not sure if anyone could take it away, or want too.
Too messy...all covered with goo from last 'job'


And I allways use the best quality grease.

Nothing another round of rehab won't cure. There are bad people out there. There are good people out there. Mostly there are "don't bother me with it I didn't see anything people" out there. Your best defense is to be aware at all times.
