    I do have guns about the house, but they're not hidden. No kids.

    I keep one, a Sigma 9mm where I can get it if I need it, all the rest are in the safe. Nobody steps foot on my property without my "barking alarms" letting me know.

    Talking One in every room!

    I also carry, just in case there's trouble in the hallway, Woody.

    Guns around the house

    I keep a 12 gauge in my closet, a .45 with a light on the rail in my night stand and a .40 in a downstairs closet. All loaded, nothing chambered. No kids.

    None hidden. I usually have something close at hand though. Just enough to get me to the Ithaca.

    Not all over the house. I still live with my parents at the current time (hey, I can't afford a soda, let alone an apartment right now) and my dad is anti. So he doesn't even know there are four guns in the house (he believes mom's is the only one). Mine are in danger all the time of being turned over to the cops out of spite from my father (he always threatens if he finds a handgun in the house I'll never see it again). So I usually keep my Bersa in the drawer in my bathroom, my Sig stays by the bed, and my 686 stays in a dresser. They all come out each morning and go in to a backpack and go to work with me, then they are returned to their rightful places at night.

    That's horrible. Couldn't imagine my father being afraid of weapons. I know too well what you're financial situation is like. I wouldn't even be going to college right now if it wasn't for the Army. I'd still be digging ditches and laying pipe.

    My dad blames Vietnam. But he seems to be ok with rifles, at least some (he was like a big kid the day he came to see my job and I put a Garand in his hands) but he hates handguns. And he's the type who thinks a potential victim using a gun to defend themselves is a good reason to be anti. It's amazing.

    First I've heard that one. He even likes evil semi-auto military rifles. Go figure.

    Anyway, good luck with that.

    I usually keep one around where I'm at and one in the gun case.

    Yes: Just me and the wife here. A gun wont help you when it is locked in a safe. In fact the home invaders will probably force you to open your safe before they do away with you. I keep a CZ 75 loaded with 16 rds of gold dots and the wife has a S&W model 60 full of hydra shocks. These guns are well concealed in my home where the average burglar wouldn't find them. I also keep another old S&W .38 under the bathroom sink. Oh yes I forgot to mention the PPK in my back pocket.
