I agree, with the others. Keep it loaded! That bad guy isnt gonna wait until you load, pump, point & shoot. Eliminate some of these steps, and only require yourself to have to point & shoot once your shotty is retrieved. Retrieval time is enough without having to do the rest as well. The spring will be fine. I've keep mine loaded and ready to go for over 10 years. I shoot it periodically but once I do, I reload it and store it in the ready-2-blast mode!
JUST MAKE SURE IT's SECURE FROM THE KIDS!

Yes, keep the defensive shotgun loaded and please for the love of sanity stop using cutesy terms like shottie!

Inside the house move with the stock to your shoulder and muzzle down, don't sweep your feet. Be ready to drop to one kneee if it is grabbed.

I always keep one in the chamber at home also. Makes less noise (pumping it ain't gonna scare nobody), gives me an extra round, and it's ready to fire. Gun ain't gonna shoot itself, so I'm not worried.
All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
