I would like some feedback on this story. I, along with my bro-in-law were deer hunting up North in MN. The setting is a hunting shack full of grown men (no children). All the men own pistols and rifles. We typically will carry our pistols holstered into the woods when setting up stands etc. And we carry locked and loaded w/ safety on. I carry Sig P938. On the Saturday of opener, i had entered the shack and removed my pistol, still loaded, still on safety and still in the holster. Later that afternoon I went back to my stand and forgot to pick up my pistol. Still loaded, still on safety and still in holster. As it turns out, my bro-in-law was notified by somebody in the shack that they were uncomfortable w/ that gun. So he pulled the gun out of the holster, removed the mag and cleared the chamber then hid the gun under a mattress for me to claim. Once I went to pick it up, it wasn’t there and I asked. Well ..... then the doors of hell swung open and my bro-in-law yelled at me said how unsafe it was and it made some feel uncomfortable. And he did this in front of a few others. Aside from him treating me as a child, I disagreed about the gun being unsafe (giving this particular setting). I did agree that I should not have left it unattended. But again, did not feel it was unsafe until he removed it from the holster. He was very black and white about the issue. Taking all the emotions out of this scenario, was this unsafe? I have had multiple pistol training classes not including CCW (I don’t consider that training). I’ve also participated in multiple pistol competitions. Did I take it for granted that hunter’s aren’t afraid to see a gun locked and loaded, in a holster w/ the safety engaged. Again, my argument is not whether or not I should have ledt it there. It is strickly about safety. I told him he should have picked up the holstered gun and either notified me or moved it or both. He still demanded I apologize for leaving the weapon on the table despite my arguments.
