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.

Well, I hate to be the turd in the punch bowl, but mine is now unloaded and in the safe, replaced with a USGI M1 Carbine, also in a safe in my bedroom. I CCW a Kahr P9, and it goes pretty much everywhere with me. I keep it on the night stand over night, but not in plain sight, on the outside chance that someone might break in undetected. I leave the safe with just a short way to go for the second combination number, and all I have to do then is turn to the third. I figure the handgun would easily buy me enough time to bring one or more long guns into play, and I don't have to wrestle with the safe every night. Works for me.

No kids, magazine 7 rounds full of 00 buck with one in the tube and safety on. We have a bed rack it stays in. When we used to have little kids at home, we put a rack high up inside the closet and above the closet entrance door. It remained out of sight but without one in the chamber back then. It provided quick access for my wife and I on our tiptoes, but the kids didn't even know it was there and if they did, would have to go to extremes to even reach it. With the door open, it was above your head and unless you just happened to look straight up there, you'd never see it. As the kids got a little older, we took them out and let them shoot. A great respect was learned very early. You can either gun-proof your kids or kid-proof your guns. It all depends on their maturity, demeanor and upbringing.

Tube full of 00 buck, and one chambered, safety on, light off: leaned against headboard with a sock over the barrel all within easy reach when laying in bed. Backup is the Glock holstered on the nightstand, same condition except no safety.

No kids in house, ever, so no worries about that.

I have the same setup. The safe door is opened and the front of the safe door faces the bedroom door. I can grab the shotgun as I take cover behind the safe door.

If I ever need to grab it, I'm hoping that the sound of chambering a round will be enough to send the intruder running.

If I need something faster, there are several loaded pistols in the safe. No need to waste time chambering a round.

I have no fear of being taken by surprise because there are three large dogs, in the house, that bark if they hear anything unusual. I would consider anyone crazy enough to come in, with all the barking, dangerous.
