I'd rather my own son see me die on my feet as a free man, than watch him go, broken, into slavery.

I don't have a safe queen. Hell, I don't have a safe...
But, if I were no kidding storing a gun, meaning I had no intention at all of using it for quite some time, I would put it in "shipping" condition.
Liberally coated in a protective coating, mag removed and empty, con 4-whatever that is for your chosen gun. For me, and my 1911, mag removed, chamber empty, hammer down, safety off.
By, "no intention of using it for quite some time", I mean, if I don't intend to carry or take it to the range, for any period that could go on indefinitely. Lets face it, you don't "plan" to store a gun for 6 months, 1 week, and 2 days. You either gonna carry it, or you ain't. Personally, I also don't keep a gun I don't know I'm gonna be using. When I inherit my grandfather's Colt, I'll be singing a different tune though.
Come if you must, but only if you must. For the day you find yourself upon my step, will surely be the night you find peace along Jordan's edge.
I firmly believe that any man's finest hour, the greatest fulfillement of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause, and lies exhausted on the field of battle... Victorious.
Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.
