Another reason, if you want guns - to carry one. Door gets kicked in and you have to get to the gun. Might not make it. Most folks can carry a little one if need be.
Alas, this is why I always have my gun on me
until I go to bed at night. When I shower, it's on the toilet seat. When I'm on the toilet...you can use your imagination. It's nothing sick, relax.
My gun is always on me. Nothing feels more useless than needing your gun and not being able to access it. I know that feeling. -___-
You did fine OP. Talk to the wifey a lot more on what to do. Do an outline of this thread.
Link her to "cornered cat" written by PAX a member and admin on this forum. It's from a woman's perspective.
Sáncte Míchael Archángele, defénde nos in proélio, cóntra nequítiam et insídias diáboli ésto præsídium. Ímperet ílli Déus, súpplices deprecámur: tuque, prínceps milítiæ cæléstis, Sátanam aliósque spíritus malígnos, qui ad perditiónem animárum pervagántur in múndo, divína virtúte, in inférnum detrúde.
