Re: Do you wear a sidearm at home?
I used to have a friend who was into guns in a big way (a champion shooter back to the original days of IPSC and the first Bianchi Cup). He told me it might seem odd, but he never felt more defenseless than when in the shower. Poor visibility and hearing for what was going on in the house, or maybe he'd just seen Psycho too many times. But he had a compartment built into the shower wall, kinda like a soap dish, only bigger, that had a door on it to keep the water out. If he was in the shower, a 1911 was in there. I'd be lying if I said there was never a time when there was a pistol on the back of the toilet with a towel over it while I was in the shower, but it was a rare thing and it's been years since.
But I do have a similar feeling if I'm working out in the garage with the door open. I just feel exposed in an odd sort of way. Any time I'm working out there Mr. Glock is close at hand. Guess we've all got our quirks, eh?

Charley Waite: You could do something about it.
Mack: What? We're freighters. Ralph here's a shopkeeper.
Charley Waite: You're men, ain't you?
Mack: I didn't raise my boys just to see 'em killed.
Charley Waite: Well you may not know this, but there's things that gnaw at a man worse than dying.
