IMHO, having two paranoid dogs trumps needing a loaded weapon in every room. They go off LONG before anyone can come close to getting into the house, giving me plenty of time to load any weapon, and for that matter, order a pizza, before the BG drops.
LOL!!!

GREAT idea! Might as well have something good to eat while your waiting for the cops to come fill out the paper work and clean up the mess!

No offense meant. I got your original response, and my post was just indicative of my experiences. I hope you never have to use any of the deterrents you have in place. Whatever works for you, is what you need to do.

Jay, your opinion of "tactical plan not going down as hollywood scripts it" +1. Regarding the "carry at home" part........how does one carry ALL the time at home? Lounging around in my pajamas and having to sit on a gun or having one sticking in my gut doesn't sound like much fun. And carrying it around and putting it down everywhere doesn't, either. My wife gets worked up if I leave one in sight for too long..........

Personally, I keep my pants on until bed time. I don't lounge around in PJ's. Also, I'm not one of the guys who carry a gun to the head in the middle of the night (27 with an enlarged prostate, I piss about 6 times a night). And in my case, my wife doesn't mind a gun laying around. The longest I go per day around the house/town without being strapped is about 2 hours if my morning is exceptionally leisurely. This is how long it takes, if I take my dear sweet time on a weekend morning, to get up, tell the lady I love her, cook some breakfast, read the paper, drop a deuce and a half, smoke a few cigs, take a shower, shave (straight razor takes a little longer than a bic), and then get dressed.

My BP revolver, BP sidelock pistol, .22 target pistol, break action 20 guage and .410 shotguns, and .22 rifles are not currently loaded; everything else is loaded with extra ammo available and is within a few steps of my bed in a safe that stays open when i am home. The mossy is closer than the safe, and one of the pistols is usually in the car when i am.

None of my guns are kept loaded and ammo is kept completely separately.

It's up to the individual. When I'm awake, I have jeans on, and I carry. I don't get up during the night unless the dogs dictate, and then, my carry gun is beside the bed on the night stand. There is no right or wrong, as long as it works for you. If it works for you, that's terrific. To have an unloaded gun for self-defense, is a waste of money. You may as well have a ball bat. Just my opinion, but if you can get an intruder to wait until you get the gun loaded, you may survive.

Gotta agree with Jay there..

Unfortunately I haven't purchased my firearm yet. But my sister has a .357 magnum L or N frame can't remember since the last time I got to play with it.. she also has her husbands glock 27 who's overseas currently, National Guard.. Both guns are loaded, the semi auto has one in the chamber and full clip both with hollow points both guns and extra rounds are in the safe bedside, the magnum has rounds on a speed loader sweet lil gadget.
