    I keep Mossberg under the bed on my side.
    The AR rests between the bed and the dresser on the wife's side.

    At night....

    My Sig 226 in a holster hiding under my nightstand.
    The wife keeps her P3AT in little nylon holster clipped to the side of the bed as well.
    I thoroughly disapprove of duels.
    If a man should challenge me, I would take him kindly and forgivingly by the hand
    and lead him to a quiet place and kill him.

    Mossberg under my bed in a case (unlatched). I have my Ruger P95 handy if for some reason something gets into my bedroom without setting of any of my alarms and manages to be completely quiet.

    Mossy sits in "The Back-Up", and a pistol on the nightstand. In the morning Mossy goes in the safe, and the pistol goes with me!

    Handgun next to the bed, 12 gauge in the closet. Kids all grown up, so no problems there.

    During the day, it stays in the safe, but I have a gun on my right hip at all times, even at home.

    At night, the gun that sits on my hip is in a holster that is mounted to the bed frame where I can get it fast. The HD rifle, is standing up next to the bed between the bed and night stand against the wall. Really, just behind the pistol. Same set up for the wife but instead of HD rifle, she has the HD shotgun.

    HD rifle = WASR 10 (AK)

    HD Shotgun = Mossberg 590 12 gauge

    My XD and my wife's .38 are on top of her dresser mirror, with 2 flashlights and a reload for each. The long guns are kept in the safe due to our 1 1/2 year old daughter.

    I have an 8yr old, so I keep my carry gun available and my wife's .357 is available to her pretty quickly. Everything else is in the safe.

    The only time I ever got my HD shotgun out and loaded it, I leaned it next to my chair, because a couple of prisoners had escaped from the state pen nearby and were seen in our area. My wife and the female neighbors were in a panic. All terrified and such. Helicopters were buzzing around over the woods, and I felt that the threat level was pretty high at that moment. My shotty is reserved for such instances, or riots or zombies and such. Not an everday SD weapon for me.
    When you've got 'em by the balls, their hearts & minds will follow. Semper Fi.

    My carry revolvers are in a small safe in the bedroom, easily accesible. I keep an XD in a locked case in the closet jic. The shotgun is in the safe on the second floor with the rest, I am considering buying a lifejacket to mount in the master closet to have it more readily available, yet safe from my 7 year old.

    I read the same article (mentioned in the o.p.), but I just keep my 12 gauge on the top shelf of my closet (out of sight, but easy to reach) with the tube full and the chamber open.
    My 226 and a flashlight are night stand ready.
    Also, I've got zero kids.

    My rifles and shotguns are in a closet. Handguns and extra mags are always on me. Rifles are not loaded, several handguns are loaded and stashed around the house in quick acting lockboxes. Paranoid? yeah... We have had a recent home-invasion nearby.

    I have my tactical 12 gauge in the BR closet, bolted to the wall in a 'Shotlock'.
    It opens with the push of buttons to open the lock.
    Fast ... sturdy ... cheap.

    Three handguns in the nightstands with a "grab bag" of extra mags and ammo. Two shotguns and two AR15 in the walk-in-closet (think defensive safe room) with a large "grab bag" of extra mags and ammo for the long guns and a second "grab bag" with extra mags and ammo for the handguns.

    Open and CC when at home. If I'm watching TV downstairs, 12G is with me. If I go up, 12G is with me. So, basically where I am :-)
