Never saw the 'keep it unloaded and disassembled' comment before. Must be some of that brighter light
Been over it again and again when I was in. Now ex wife repeatedly went to the elders about the guns I own.
Every time, usually a different elder takes me in the back, 'why do you own guns, we know you don't hunt?'
Recreational target practice at a range was my scripted answer.
'well, why do you have a concealed carry permit then?'
Because I know the laws, and have taken safety courses. I can legally carry the gun in my truck to and from the range without a concealed carry permit. But what would happen if I have to go to the bathroom on the way home, or stop for lunch? Then I'm not going directly to or from the range to home, and it would put me in violation of the law.
One day we were out doing errands in my vehicle and she caught site of a safe under my drivers seat. What's in that she asked. My 45.
Yup next meeting in the back room, why do you carry a gun everywhere you go?
Oh I went to the range yesterday and got called into work before I got home. Forgot to take it back in the house. Good thing I have a concealed carry permit and a locking safe in my truck.
Only way I'd keep an unloaded disassembled gun around is if was broken.
