CHAD A. READLER, Circuit Judge. During an unannounced visit to Jaquar Latimer’s residence, parole officers observed a pistol sitting in plain view on a loveseat. A search of the home unearthed two other firearms and nearly a dozen grams of cocaine.

Following his ensuing conviction for possessing drugs and firearms, Latimer was sentenced to 175 months in prison coupled with a consecutive 24-month sentence for supervised-release violations largely premised on the underlying drugs and firearms offenses. On appeal, Latimer contends that the government failed to show that Latimer possessed the contraband found at his residence. Because more than ample evidence connected Latimer to those items, we affirm.
