My guns are loaded 24/7/365.I can't believe there is so much debate over whether or not a gun that is used for personal protection should be loaded or not.:confused:

Yikes!

First of all, how about keeping them OUT of your room in the first place, how about keeping them OUT of your abode???

Buy a Chihuahua or a guard parrot or maybe even a good security alarm system? How about good doors and windows and good door lock(s) AND door and window blocks?

Rant over.

I keep my G17L in an old American Security push button handgun safe (which I can open in the dark half asleep) with a full magazine, empty chamber, decocked. I've trained myself to work the action as soon as it comes out of the safe. Attached to the 17L is a Surefire X200 white light.

I also have my G26 (my EDC) in a fanny pack with wallet and creds case in case of 'the big one' hits in the middle of the night when I'm in my chonies.

I've never had to pull the 17L out of the safe for real...I have pulled the G26 twice for people that were banging on my front door. Both 'needed' stuff and both stuck around long enough to end up explaining to the cops what the heck they were doing banging on my door.

I have two Chow mutts in the back which are loud and obnoxious upon noticing anything in the alley...and yes, I have a Chihuahua mutt in the front (gated) patio area that gets kenneled at night in the foyer.

With those precautions I find it hard to believe anybody could get to my bedroom (oh did I mention? I lock my bedroom door!) much less be hovering over me when I wake up. If that ninja does get there, then I figure I'm dead anyway.

Any specific recommendations here?

I've looked into the various choices for doors and made/implemented my decisions, but not so much on the windows yet.

Just curious, what is the set-up for your bedside gun ?? I've heard some people sleep with a loaded gun underneath their pillow...yikes !!
Mine is loaded no round in the chamber. Hanging from the bed post in a holster light attached. The Remington 1100 competition red status under the bed. The BCM Reece red status between bed and dresser. Random tomahawks, knives, kukris about. 95lbs Amstaff sleeping to my left, beautiful woman on my right.

What does this mean (red status)? I don't think I've ever heard that before.

i can somewhat understand chambered vs unchambered debate. but leaving the mag out?????????? i keep mine loaded in a shotlock safe and the only time the safe is locked is when i'm not at home - otherwise the safe is unlocked.

Gen 4 19, with streamlight light/laser attached to rail, loaded with Glock 17 magazine and attached +2 floor plate, loaded one down. I keep it chamber loaded, as it is in a gunvault. Surefire tactical light is stored beside gunvault. I have spare mags close by, but not immediately at hand. If I can't get it done with 19 rounds, I guess I need to transition to my mossy 500 12 ga. Be safe.

condition 3....makes it easier to dry fire practice, just drop mag, check chamber and practice, wouldnt want to keep ejecting a round, loading it back in, etc.

My glocks unloaded.. if the need arises i do not intend to pick up a pistol, i believe my AR or shotgun would be a better choice.

I keep my Glock 27 with a Glock 33 barrel in it. With a Glock 35 magazine full of underwood 357 sig with one in the pipe next to a led mag light. Wife has sig p238 on her side also loaded.Depending on how big that bump in the night is I always keep my ar15 close in the corner dressed with Magpul furniture tlr2 light and a primary arms red dot. I keep a loaded magazine in the rifle but do not have it loaded, just my Glock. Also have Remington 870 12ga in the safe just a few more steps next to the tv in the safe.

For my wife and I at night 5 loaded pistols with full magazines and one in the chamber, cell phones and small high output hand held lights and spare pistols/magazines stashed if we have to retreat to another room. Ear protection is available if time allows us to use it. Plenty loaded full capacity spare magazines as well in the same caliber that will work in all the Glock pistols available.
It has been awhile and I will work on my night again shooting next month..
