Leaned in the corner next to my bed, full tube and a shell in the chamber. Safety ON. Earmuffs hanging on the light. I live alone and RARELY have guests. When I do have company or go out of town I'll reload it with an empty chamber. It is also pointing away from my neighbors, skyward.

The AR is in the opposite corner behind a closet door with a full mag and empty chamber. Glock stays in the holster on my end table when I'm home and up, in the nightstand when I'm asleep / away. Full mag +1.

It all depends on your living situation. I live alone, and don't often have company, therefore I'm playing defense from the bedroom if anybody comes in my front door / window. Defense wins championships.

A friend who knows about these shotguns asked me what I was afraid of and I replied not a darn thing.

Young boys in my house. My safe is in the basement but i have an 8 gun locker in my bedroom. My 12ga is kept in the locker with a full tube and unloaded chamber with safety off. Its not ideal but keeping out and unlocked is not an option at this time in my life. The trick is to practice opening the locker and getting the gun.

Have you looked at these... http://www.hideagun.net/home/hideagun---shotgun

If you mounted it high enough out of reach a child would never know it was there.

Don't want to take a chance on short stroking and jamming it when I need it the most. By keeping the chamber loaded I'm guaranteed at least one shot. Also, its quieter that way.

`Yup!....Copy that.

Full 20 round drum, bolt carrier open, just under my side of the bed. I move it to the top shelf in the closet on weekends where I have my daughter.

My safe is next to the bed and I open the door at night. The gun has the magazine loaded, nothing in the chamber. I'm thinking about putting some brackets over the bedroom door and hanging it there during the night.

only one mention above for the Shotlock? really?! check it out...

http://www.shotlock.com/SoloVault.asp

why have a gun if it isn't ready to go and accesible? if something goes bump in the night you probably won't have the time or mental capacitiy to get it out of the safe and/or load it. I have kids and I think this is the best comprimise. I have it mounted in my closet, which I really think is too far, but best I can do for now. if I had a bed frame, I would mount it directly to the frame.

Hearing Protection

"cliffsta" gave some good advice about having ear protectors next to the shotgun,
or any HD weapon. And preferably electronic to amplify and identify the unknown sounds.

Winchester 1300 12 gauge leaned up in the corner next to my bed, 7 in the mag, 1 in the chamber. Safety on, but I also always have a pistol on my night stand. I rotate between my S&W .38spl and Glock 37 .45 GAP. Neither have safeties.

1st line of defense is I live in a gated 24/7 guarded community with zero crime.

2nd line of defense is i have an alarm always turned on a night, so any intruder would wake me and hopefully run off before i need to take him down.. (saves me a whole lot in legal fee's the way i see it)

3rd line of defense is my Glock 19, chambered under my bed in a small safe. 4 quick easy presses of a key and i'm ready. That's my first grab. Depending on the situation, perhaps hand it to the wife to cover me.

4th line of defense is to immediately retreat to my closet, where my 870 tactical is sitting, loaded with '00' not chambered. It is however on a combination lock gun safe..

I have two young boys 7&8, so locking it away is essential. I have it set on the first number so all i have to do is spin it one way then the other. I've been practicing this and i can get the lock open, my electronic ears on and the gun out in 4 seconds. No point going deaf over an intruder ! lol

Next line of defense is to rack that bad boy, so that they hear what's coming. Then move to the hallway, investigate, and fire as necessary. If for whatever reason i get taken down my wife, who'll have the glock all ready to go, is to use me as cover and finish the job with the glock. All from upstairs, since we have an advantage point from there.

All that being said, there's only a 99.9999999999% it'll actually ever happen... but if it does I'll be ready !

oh and the cops will already be on their way thanks to the alarm monitoring service.

Mas Ayoob in his book Stress Fire II, recommends the following for a Pump Shotgun.
Magazine Loaded
Chamber Empty
Hammer Cocked
Safety On

This requires anyone who gains access to the weapon to manipulate the slide release, take off the safety, rack and load the shotgun, then fire. This is a very safe way to store a shotgun if you have toddlers about. Also will buy you time if a bad guy gets your weapon if they are unfamiliar with a Pumps' manual of arms!

Renownd tactical Shotgun expert Joe Biden advised me to load only two rounds, and then fire both to scare the intruder away.
I think this is sound advice, given the man is such a deadly weapon that he is surrounded by Secret Service agents 24-7 to protect US from HIM.

FWIW: 590, full tube, bayonette mounted. beside the bed or in safe, with a well trained kid in house. handguns in a lockbox bedside, 24-7.
