Firearms are tools. They don’t have personalities. They are inanimate objects. It’s how they are used that matters. I hope knowing how to use your firearm properly, along with the wisdom in this book, will help you develop a plan that will give you the peace of mind that comes from knowing that, if the time ever comes, you will be as ready as possible to use your firearm to protect not only yourself, but the people who are the most important to you. Whether you are a seasoned pro or someone completely new to firearms, you will find the information in this book extremely valuable.

By setting these markers, residents near those flood-prone areas avoid needing to make decisions under pressure and emotional distraction. They also avoid rationalizing inaction in the face of possible threat, and they avoid needing to improvise, because they have an actionable plan already in place. Let’s take the above example and apply it to the lessons here. Precursor cues for home-defense could be based on time of day (when to set an alarm), activities in your community (when to use perimeter lighting), a change in relationship status (when to change your locks or security alarm codes), actions from your dog (when to barricade), and actions or words from someone inside your home (when to ask them to leave), or at the door (when to call the police).

Too, with enough time and access, these types of locks are easily defeated. When it comes to securing a staged home-defense firearm, my bottom line best practice recommendation is always going to be a quick-access safe. These kinds of safes are made by many companies and so are of varying quality and efficiency.
