    My wife and I do not have any kids so we have a few handguns placed around the house. If we have company over they all get moved where no one would accidentally find them. Also have a Doberman pinscher to "Occupy" anyone who shouldn't be there. IMHO dogs are great deterrent and might give you the few seconds you need.

    Only my wife and I live in the household so the handy firearm stashed and ready is timely. One must take responsibility to gather them in and place them in the safe before guests arrive. We're not arming home-invasion crooks either for the only firearms they will be able to detect will be the ones we'll be holding.

    I do not go about armed in my own house. If that is imprudent than so be it.

    Most are in the safe, from which two move to the nightstand when I get home from work. Several others are stashed in discreet locations where we can easily access them if needed, especially since 4 pet dogs (with bad attitudes towards strangers at the door) should provide both early warning and delay. The dogs should also provide warning if BG's are in the house when we arrive home, at which point we won't enter anyway. Should a break-in occur at night, locks & dogs should allow us to arm ourselves before any BG could find a hideaway gun.

    My wife and daughters know the guns' locations and how to use them. None of us carry at home. On the very rare occasions when children come to the house, everything gets locked in the safe.

    I won't leave a weapon in a room that I am not in, and if someone outside the lady friend is around, the weapon stays on me.

    There was just a news story on today about a man in Indiana being shot and killed by his three-year-old after the kid found his loaded and stashed pistol. Shot in front of his other two kids...

    The only stashing of weapons I am contemplating is a Gunvault Microvault in the living room with another pistol.

    Thoughts on staging weapons around the house
    My thoughts about this? Backward intelligence. You asked.....I told. Staging weapons around the house is a silly idea for me personally. Reasons? Pretty simple if you just think about the pros and cons from an intelligent point of view. Any weapon you can't see or hold is not under your control. This one single (plain and simple) principle leads me to believe what I've just told you. If you own any firearm, you need to be responsible for that firearm all of the time. Strung around the house means that you're strung out and incapable of taking responsibility for each and every one at any time. I simply won't do this myself. No need. I feel for those that do make their own choice....just the same as I feel free to offer my opinions that they are making mistakes for no good reasons.

    Funny, notice how that blunt, non-negotiable response killed this conversation? I wonder why?

He explained the high probability that ANY intruder into his home had likely come to kill him, so they already HAD guns. He just didn't want to be caught anywhere very far from one. I asked if bodyguards wouldn't be simpler. We walked me to a front window, parted the curtains & pointed to a dark Lincoln parked across the street from the driveway. It was a unique, but very quiet, Christmas.
    This is a great beginning to the rest of the story. One day if you have the time and can share more, I'd like to hear about your dangerous, lifelong criminal friend.

    I am all for it, but now that I have a little one running around I have to give it more thought!
