I have a home defense shotgun, 12ga pump. I keep it in the closet with 5 rounds of 00 in a buttstock shell holder, none in the gun itself. The shotgun is in the corner of the closet. There's got to be a better way to store it in a more ready and accessible mode. I have a 3 year old, so that must be a consideration. I also have a loaded revolver in a drawer safe, which is now my go to weapon. I'd like to make my shotgun my primary weapon if i can figure out a better way to store it at the ready. Thanks for your suggestions. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
