And I always keep it pointed in a generally safe direction when decocking. The only damage dealt by a malfuction would be to my ears and possibly some home furnishings.

If you can't reduce the risks to that level, you probably shouldn't own a gun.
What I'm wondering is why not unload and deckock before you enter the home?

Why indeed? This is not a big deal guys. Why is it cocked inside anyways? Take the gun and put it in a safe and forget it....cocked, decocked, whatever makes you feel safe....right?

Mine stays loaded at home. Nightstand gun. Goes to the range, does a little work...then clean and reload with JHPs, chamber a round, and de-cock.

Simple answer? Because it gets cocked when you chamber a round.

That's the way to do it to set it on double action mode.

Because a bad guy isn't going to wait on you to load your weapon.

I have to agree with Rusty that for well over 100 years people have been decocking the hammer by gently riding it down. And I've done it many many years with the 1911/Hi Power, bringing the hammer to half cock. Not recommended today of course but before the P38 and other Walthers there wasn't any other way to decock. In all that time I never had an ND/AD but I kept a lot of flesh in front of the hammer so there wouldn't be a discharge and of course the pistol was pointed in a safe direction. Not the smartest thing to do but as they say the real safety is between your ears. An unrecommended method but done just right every time, no mistakes allowed, it proved safe for me. No one else do it though!
Cocked and locked not half cocked!

With a decocker I always ride the hammer down instead of letting the decocker slam it into the stop, why not soften the hammer strike just in case. This technique is safe.

So does mine. I keep my Sig P-226 and my XD-45 loaded at all times in my night stand with Surefire lights mounted. The Sig for my wife and the XD for me. Her and the kids stay in the bedroom while I clear the house. Living here on the US/Mexico borader you have to be ready for anything.

As for keeping a loaded firearm around the house with kids, I have raised all 5 of mine with firearms since they could hold a pistol and rifle. The biggest mistake you can make with kids is trying to keep it a secret from them. Knowledge is the key, not to mention proper training. Take the curiosity out of it and they will learn to respect it.

Look I never carry a loaded gun in the house for safety, our county hasn't had a murder in about 75 years. I keep a loaded mag NEXT TO my glock on the nightstand.
