This particular gun has popped up before in pocket dumps, but what interests me is actually the note the owner of the gun included: “As I came into my room and prepared to relax a bit, I removed these items from my pockets and thought to share them as they lay. I would’ve organized them, but this shot was how I arranged them in my rush to get to the restroom following a half gallon of water.”
So… he took his gun off to use the bathroom? Yes, I understand many people feel no need to wear their guns at home or in their hotel rooms, but why not? I’ll be that guy, the one saying perhaps you should consider how quickly you can reach said gun if someone kicks in your hotel room door or walks into your home’s back door after you – oops – forgot to lock it. And if you’re going to the bathroom, I have news for you: you should leave your gun holstered and on your belt. If I can do it, you can do it.
How many of you carry at home or in hotel rooms on trips? If you take your gun off, take a moment to consider whether or not you can reach your gun before an attacker reaches you – or simply gets in your way.
