Loaded firearms
 
How many loaded firearms do you have in your home and auto?
I have at least one in each room of my house including 4 bathrooms. I have three in my bedroom, a colt 45 beside my bed and another one in my bath and a 12 gauge spas under my bed. I keep a Colt cobra 38 cal in my wifes car and a Colt mustang in mine and a colt 45 in my truck and my daughters have 380's in there cars, and we all have concealed carry permits. I have an ADT security system in my home and an electronic security system (cameras included) around my property with an invisable fence containing a trained German shepherd guard dog.
We don't get very many visitors.

All the guns are always loaded (unless being cleaned) around my house. Even the ones in the safes.

I thought about the gun in every room thing, but decided against it, because it is just as easy for a burglar to find one of them as it is for him/her/it to find silverware or other stuff to steal. I decided to keep a shotgun in my bedroom, and a handgun on my person in a holster or a pocket when I am home, as well as when I go out. If I have to go to the head at night I have a gun in my hand. It is better to have a single gun immediately available than to have one stashed in the room. You may be 15 feet away from the hiding place when you discover a perp right behind you. "Just because I'm paranoid, that doesn't mean they're not out to get me". :D

I keep two loaded shotguns in the house, my hd shotgun in the closet (pardner pump with top folder loaded with 00 buck) and my 870 express in the safe.

Also got a loaded bersa .380 in the kitchen/living room area and a .45 on me or in the truck

Keeping guns loaded in your house really depends on who is in your house. If you have kids it could still be fine but trouble might happen if they bring friends home. Any visitors to your home can be possible trouble if they happen to find one of your guns. That said there is still the fact that an unloaded gun is just another hunk of metal.

All my firearms are kept loaded except for my Arisaka Type 38, Springfield Trapdoor, Mosin Nagant M91/30, and Lee Enfield. That includes my SR9c, Springfield 1911A1 Mil-Spec, Remington Sportsman 58, Winchester Model 1894, and my Grandfather's .22 revolver.
