Do what you want but in my state you pretty much cannot draw until your life is already in imminent danger and that seems like a terrible time to be adding time/steps. Needing a gun is a pretty rare event for most of us but it seems like you're preparing for that even more rare event where you both need a gun and see the trouble coming in advance.
