Default Loaded guns in safe

Is it safe to store a loaded handgun in a safe? I always remove the loaded magazine and store the magazine outside if the safe... Thanks

a gun is safe until someone uses it unsafely. a gun will not, under any circumstances, ever fire unless someone pulls the trigger.

If it is not on my person, ammo and guns are in some kind of safe 99% of the time. I do not unload my carry pieces nor my home defense gun which I keep in quick access safes. In my storage safe, I don't typically keep my handguns loaded; but I do have some loaded AR magazines in there.

I see no need to store guns and ammo separately.

In the event of a fire, only the cartridge in the chamber becomes dangerous. But so is the fire.

If you are qualified. Keep a loaded gun anywhere you want. That means, however, that most gun owners should not.

I keep one "Revolver" loaded in my safe with an empty cylinder over the bore. Just in case of a fire the rounds going off would not have enough pressure to create a serious problem regarding a cook off! But if I was forced to open my safe I just need to grab it and pull the trigger to defend myself or the family. MY family is also educated as to which one it is and it is readily accessible. I could see a home invader not allowing the male to open the safe! I do not keep one in the chamber of my semi autos. In fact the only other ammo in my safe is three 30 Round AR Mags that are loaded incase I need them on the spur of the moment. Other than that the ammo is stored and locked in another area.

If your revolver gets hot enough to cook-off all the rounds will probably go-destroying the gun.

I don't quite understand why someone keeps an empty chamber in a modern revolver. Transfer bars pretty well negate the need for empty chambers, don't they?

I suppose the one aligned with the barrel only has at most a one in five chance of being the first to go. Good thinking, Bill.

NAA has created a genius way of having the cylinder stop between cylinders.

"North American Arms Mini-Revolvers are equipped with a unique safety cylinder, giving you maximum protection against accidental discharge.

The North American Arms Safety Cylinder feature allows the gun to be carried fully loaded. There are halfway notches located between the chambers. The hammer is lowered into one of these notches after the gun is loaded. When the hammer is pulled back to the firing position the cylinder rotates to the next chamber."
