Yes, my firearms are loaded.

My fire extinguishers are filled, as is the first aid kit, and the smoke detectors have batteries.

None of those things that you may need in an emergency work without those, y'know.

I only keep one loaded. The rest I keep unloaded and have the ammo stored seperately. My apartment is small and my doors are locked and I'm confident enough in my ability to fight my way to the gun if it comes down to it.

I don't quite have the confidence in handling my gun yet to store it loaded. But I do have it in a quick open Gun Vault next to my bed with the ammo in there, too. I also have a speed loader but I need to practice with it more. I am just getting comfortable with my gun and will soon be to a point to store it loaded. Even thought the trigger pull is pretty heavy, I'm afraid when I pull it out of the Gun Vault I'll accidentally fire it. I just need to get comfortable with it.

Same here, have several in different places, all XD variations with chamber indicator, cocked indicator, no safety other than grip and trigger, so pick it up and shoot !!

In my house, I am not more than 15 steps from a condition one handgun which I will use to get to my shotgun.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!
