“The more people that know, the more likely that someone is to talk.”
That’s why in today’s era of un-American lunacy I don’t think it’s a good idea to tell anyone what kinds of guns we have, this includes relatives, neighbors and friends. Keep a couple out in plain view for hunting or self defense, hide the rest. A common storage point such as a gun safe makes it easier to find all in one cache.
I am I paranoid? Yes.
I have a gun safe, but only a fraction of my guns are stored within it for that very reason.
