I pretty much have a gun hanging on my belt or in my pocket all the time, except at work or in places where a gun is a no-no. At home, as long as I am awake and moving around or lounging around, I have a gun on me, and the rest of my guns locked in my safe. At bedtime, I get out my Taurus PT145 and keep it in my bed (no, there's no hair around the muzzle) near my hand. I also have a Mossberg 500 pump 12 ga with an 18" barrel leaning in a corner by my bed. When I leave home, I carry one or two guns and lock the rest in my safe. Whether I grab the PT145 or the Mossberg if the SHTF depends upon whether the BG(s) are in the same room as I am when I discover the intrusion, in which case I'll grab the PT145, or if they are elsewhere in the house I'll get the Mossberg if I can get to it.

While we're on this subject, I have a story about a couple who, in my opinion, are committing a serious faux pas. I met these people when I went to their home in a small town in Indiana with my brother-in-law. The lady is my brother-in-law's sister and the man is her husband. They are "preppers" in the extreme, with a basement full of everything from canned food to big boxes of toilet paper. The thing that is scary about them is that they have handguns stashed all over their house, under the cushions on their couches and chairs, in drawers of end tables, night stands, bathroom medicine cabinets, taped under the dining table, under the coffee table, in kitchen cabinets, ad nauseum. What is really scary is that he proudly removed every one of them (I counted 20) and showed me the guns and where he has them stashed. And he didn't know me from Adam. If he does that for everybody who comes to his house, one day he'll come home from the store and find all of them gone. Plus, if some kid gets "busy" and finds one when he is in another room, a real tragedy could happen. It scared the hell out of me.

Imo those preppers are bat poo crazy.
And most just loooove to show off what they have done.. child safety is an obvious issue with stashing guns all over the house..
And again imo these preppers WILL be targets in a mass survival doomsday senario..
All that stockpiled food and themselves hunkered down in a room under the house... one match turns the safe haven into an oven. With tons of wood right on top..
An even worse idea is to tell all about it on national television..
They have good intentions but not the quickest of cats imo... just sayin.

I agree. Advertising it on tv is a big no-no imo.

I would get a full size gun safe at some point. Not that you need to fill it up with guns. You can get a fireproof gun safe for $600. You have plenty of room for paperwork, irreplaceable photos, medications, laptops, the list goes on and on. Now is a good time to buy a safe. Lots of places have free financing for six months. Liberty makes a very good fireproof safe and they have a great replacement plan.

Until you get a safe a plain old exterior door knob on a closet will keep your child safe. Somewhere down the road you can buy a pocket pistol so you can protect your family at any time. Home invasions happen at any time, not just at night.

You can get an old range/oven for next to nothing.

A small FIREPROOF document safe from walmart is $50 or less. Wont keep a criminal from running off with your safe, but will keep the kids away and still be easily accesible.

And one of these will bust the latch off a range/oven in seconds. I have split some healthy rocks and stumps with a couple strikes of a maul.

I agree that the MOST important thing is to educate your children. But up until a certain age(maybe 10) I would make sure to keep guns locked if not have ammo hidden just in case. But making sure a kid doesnt end up shooting themselves with a gun is more important then keeping a gun next to you incase of a robbery. If you don't trust your kid, lock it up. Id rather take the chances of being unarmed if a robber breaks in than having a tragic firearms accident.
