When you use a handgun for personal protection, you should have it accessible to you but inaccessible to all unauthorized persons. Depending on the location and the people who have access to that location, you should adapt your storage practices to the situation. Therefore, you need to plan ahead to ensure that your handgun is secured at all times.
The following are locations where you may need to carry and store your handgun and people who may have access to your handgun.
