This has nothing to do with " what the owner is comfortable with"
We are talking about a persons worst nighmare.
If you think that just because you have a firarms you have the upper hand your dead wrong!!
The idea of haveing a defencive firearm is to defend yourself.
Without training you run just as great a chance of becoming a victim as not having a gun, sure i may give you a little bit of an edge nbut not as much as you think.
If you have enought time to post here then you have time to train and talk with your household about what to do if/when that happen.
The weapons retention device ( sling) is somthing you should train with, picking the right sling is allso somthing that needs to be talked about.
If your on the winning side and all the bad guys ae nice easy targets then, sure if its not dark and you dont fall down or need to go hand to hand with the bad guy, or need 2 hands to do somthing like force a door closed when someones trying to push open, you are right you dont need a sling.
But who knows what goign to happen??
I know one thing, if a bad guy sees you with a gun and is close, the only thing he will think of is "must get that gun"
So he grabs it and now what????
Sure as shit going to wish you had a sling on it now!!
