Only a few are loaded in my house, and in a safe spot. Rest are put away safely with no ammo with them.

I had to vote NO, but I think there could be a fourth option. Do I keep ALL of my guns loaded? No, I don't. Not ALL of them.

Those pistols that I use for carry, or home defense I keep loaded, but if not in my immediate possession or control, they are locked away in the safe, but still loaded.

Rifles, same thing. If they are for home defense, or car carry on some occasions, I have loaded magazines inserted in the mag wells, but no round chambered. Normally kept in the safe. Other long guns not usable for home defense, are unloaded and locked in a safe.

Shotguns, unloaded in safe, but HD ammo readily available.

No kids in the home, but frequent visits by my grand son, age 17 months.

I keep two loaded pistols outside of the safe. My carry gin and a stashed house gun.
All others stay in the safe. Anything I would consider a defensive weapon is loaded in the safe.

Always good to carry around some gin. You never know when you'll find a lonely glass of 7-Up.

I don't keep all loaded, but I can think of 4 that are. I carry one loaded pistol around the house with me at all times and the rest are locked up in the safe.

Thinking if the gin is loaded, the guns shouldn't be. I kid you , I kid. Only I know which ones are loaded and where thy are.

I voted "yes, but not spread around". I just remembered that the Marlin model 60 is currently without a front sight and is unloaded. My BP pistols are also currently unloaded. All firearms that would be filling a home defense role are loaded with spare magazines or speedloaders or extra shells attached. Some of them are in the safe that stays unlocked when i am home; one of them is beside the alarm clock; one may or may not be stashed in the magazine stack next to the toilet.

Yes I keep them loaded, I guess it would be kind of like having a stick to defend yourself if it came a time you needed it, if it was unloaded, lol

Yup. Like a quote I once heard, and to paraphrase: :"A gun is like a parachute. When you need one and you don't have one, nothing else will do."
