Don't intend to carry rifles but want them handy as I like short rifles best of all. That means not in the safe when home.
Besides, I'm also not going to carry my handguns around on my person in the house. Just not going to do it! Call me clueless and ill-prepared if necessary but there's something to be said for quality of life and freedom from paranoia and obsession. We're prepared enough to suit our lifestyles in the home and the level of risk we perceive in our small, rural, low-crime community and rapid invasion of our house won't be so easy or quiet. If our level of preparation proves inadequate then so be it.

Self defense is defensive; tactical is offensive. I try not to be offensive.

I don't have a sufficient holster for my shotgun, and fooling around with my wife could get a little awkward if I'm holding it. Also, some of us don't think it's practical to play with the kids, exercise in the house, etc., with a firearm strapped on. Having a long gun loaded and ready without it being conspicuous is not a silly game. The moral high ground you take by saying it's gross negligence to practice such home defense is an illusion. I intend no disrespect with my tone, but there are a lot of guys on these forums that hide guns because it's the most practical thing that they can do in order to both keep bad people from killing their family members and keeping them out of reach of their children. If you've got the situation where you can successfully carry your firearm around the house in an every day setting, that's cool, but some can't and shouldn't be treated like second rate when they do the next best thing.
