    I'm sorry, but on the honor and glory of the Republic of Texas, I was born here and I'll die here. Remember the Alamo.

    East Texas is bigger than most other States. I was asking out of curiosity to get a better feel for how to structure my advice. My advice is free of course.

    When you finish your EMT Basic, are you going to stay in your area, or go to the job? Are you going to pursue further education (paramedic, etc...)? Are you going to try to work for a fire department (firefighter EMT/Paramedic) or an ambulance service?

    Those are questions that you have probably already answered for yourself, but we don't know that.

    Of course, you came here looking for recommendations on gun locks and safety.... but, you got so much more than that?

    I'm going to move to a bigger area, maybe something outliers of Houston ore DFW, but not in the city.

    I want to do a few years in basic, maybe go AEMT, then go police. I want to be a cop. I don't mind getting shot at (as I say, never having been in a real firefight). But I want to do good, you know?

    Well, there's not much point in buying a place right now then, unless of course you have the money and the place you buy has the potential for appreciation. Still, LE has a lot of opportunity. Rural areas the SO deputies are in a pretty stable job. Then there's large municipal and small municipal. If you go DPS then you could go anywhere, anytime.

    Of course you'll still have to go through The Academy for whichever branch you choose. Some departments require attendance at their own academy, but you likely already know that.

    Okay, the advice....

    You've already been given the best advice (by Mr. Mad Scientist) that I can give. Leave your guns at your parents house in storage. Take your EDC and focus on your career. There will be plenty of time to do the whole gun thing later on. Live in the place (house, apartment) that facilitates your job/education. That should be your main focus.
