Default M6 people, when you park Ebrake or leave in gear?

Just curious about the people with manuals if you leave it in gear or pull the ebrake when you park somewhere.

I personally usually just leave it in gear unless Im on a steap incline and want to be sure it wont move.

Both every time, that's how my pops taught me when I first learned to drive stick and it's just habit by now.

Why is then even a question? There is no wear to leaving it in gear and its just extra insurance to pull the e-brake.

No harm in doing both and it takes an extra .00025 secs to do so. lol

I did that too in my v6 mustang that was auto. But that was because it was right there a close. In my sonoma auto I didn't because you had to step on the parking brake. lol **** that.
