@Hawkguy, "i use a DBL shotty for HD" I think your neighbors to the east call that a "Twice barreled Shoot Gun" if I'm not mistaken, lol. A fine choice for home defense in my book. We have a walk in closet in our bedroom. That's where the long guns are stored. We can lock the door when away and we store the handguns in there if we get little ones over. Again, locked.

I keep a gun on me all of the time. I keep a loaded shotgun beside the bed. My dog is not very social so I lock her in the bedroom when we have company. When we leave the house I lock everything that is not going with us in the safe. Since everyone has gone crazy over ammo we got a second safe for ammo and guns we don't shoot very much.

A cat owner would've pointed out that they unloaded the shotgun when securing the cat in the bedroom.

yup, you gotta protect the wee ones at all costs, imo. if you have very small children, you better think through having a loaded gun in your house....and make damn sure there is NO WAY....

i don't want them getting near my loaded "twice barreled shotgun," that's for sure!

As I mentioned, I always pocket carry, but this is my HD gun setup on my bed.

I would say that the risk of a child or other "unauthorized" person finding and using an unsecured firearm, possible against you, outweighs the time it takes to access a gun that's locked up.

Home defense is about much more that just having a gun. Coming out of a dead sleep to face a threat with a loaded gun "immediately" in your hand is IMHO the WORST case scenario and has the potential for killing a loved one by mistake.

Needing to take a few moments to shake out the cobwebs while accessing the gun will give your mind time to wake and focus...

...and having a dog, alarm, or some other form of "early warning device" is a better option than the a groggy homeowner instantly grabbing a "hot" shotty.

Just my .02 cents.

i remember it ended well for the homeowners. in a violent fight, they managed to get the shotgun back and kill both intruders.

i don't want an unarmed intruder finding my loaded gun easily and using it one me. it can certainly happen. i'm not saying anything 100% prevents this, but i sure don't think you want to make it easy.

on the flip side, i also think if you can't get a HD gun in a second or two...it becomes ineffective. thus, the reason i think keeping the gun perpetually locked up is not real effective.
