In the FIRST place, there is no way I am going to sit in my yard cleaning a gun in public view. There are just too many Liberal Trained Ninnys who will freak out and too many crooks who would mark me for theft.
My old house required that I carry gun cases to the car in plain view. I wonder if that might not have contributed to a burglary with six guns stolen. (And recovered the next day when the thief wrecked his stolen car.)
The new place lets me load up in the garage.
Sad, though. I well remember riding the city bus to the range with cased Remington 513T in hand. But that was about 1960. As Jeff Cooper said, "The past is a different country, they do things differently there."
