Put it on the night stand, in its holster.
So by that logic I should train less to reduce my handling of the weapon incase I might have an accident?I keep it in the holster. I believe that in addition to the unnecessary wear on the ammo, the more you handle the gun in terms of loading and unloading, the higher the chances of something happening. Handle it less, less chance of something happening.
Actually 74 is correct, An ND or AD are more likely while handling the gun. That's why most departments provide a sand filled gun boot to load and clear in. I keep my guns in a quick access gun box fully loaded, and in a holster. The holster is to protect the trigger and the finish of the gun from the box.

Just be vigilent in your safety practices and it won't matter how much you handle it.
If you feel that you're rolling the dice on a ND happening each time you pick up your gun, seek better training or reconsider your choice to own a firearm...
For what it's worth regarding the OP, I clear and lock up my carry gun each night. I have a shotgun for HD.
I keep it holstered, where my active "on-duty" defensive guns should be. They don't get stored away every time I come home. I have them on me or close by.End of day gun storage
