Every Glock I own is locked & loaded. In every room.
Are shotguns drop safe? I cringe at the thought of keeping a shell chambered. Don't know why... I keep everything else ready to go.
Pumps are NOT drop safe, and I do not know of any autos that are, but I'm a pump guy, so not sure.
So why the heck would you want to keep your shotgun cocked and locked? Wouldn't you be concerned with bumping it while digging it out of its stash spot? How long does it take to rack a round into the chamber?
Also, are AKs drop safe? I have a S-12 but don't use it for HD.
Pics please.... I love Saigas. I have a converted 12 as well. Among others..
Remington Tactical 1100 fully loaded, one in chamber, safety on, and quick accesibility, yet well hidden. This was not always the case as the wife and I are empty nesters.
full tube, empty chamber, safety off.
FWIW, if you racking the shotgun gives the BG enough warning to do something, you are doing it wrong. My $.02.
My standard for shotguns (Rem 870 pump, Beretta 1201 FP auto) is chamber empty, safety off, mag tube down one round. That makes it plenty easy to put it into fighting condition as I'm bringing it into play, allows a fast select slug drill if needed, and gives a good level of safety.
