In this YouTube video by USCCA, we learn the difference between gun storage and staging in the home, and how to practice them safely. Storage is keeping an empty gun unused for long periods of time, while staging is having one ready, yet secure, in case of a home invasion.
The hosts describe their recommended miniature gun safe for staging. It can be opened with a combination or sequence of button presses. Then they show products for storing unloaded weapons and transporting them to a shooting range. Keeping children safe is obviously imperative; guns should be out of reach from small children, and safety rules should be taught from before the time they’re old enough to handle them.
