Stashed guns

LMLarsenLMLarsen Senior MemberPosts: 8,337 Senior Member
Without going into detail, who besides me has a few weapons stashed about the house in various rooms? Wife and I no kids to worry about, so we do have some tucked away.

Hey, it's 2AM and I haven't posted lately; sue me! :wink:

    Same with my place. There would be more spread about but my girfriend gives me enough grief about what's out and about as is. Without going into too much detail.... I can always grab at least one loaded gun without getting out of bed (always my 1911, sometimes more), the 12 ga. is nearly as close by and the AR and 9mm carbine aren't much further away. Couple more handguns stashed downstairs in different rooms. Plus various bladed weapons, sticks, etc. If I lived alone I'd be able to grab a gun within 3 steps no matter where I was in the house but I have to yield to the woman's sense of overkill.

    One stashed, but I'm usually carrying something. Even at home. Is that weird? :tooth:

    Not stashed in the sense most mean here.

    With a 3 year old around, I have to keep them secure. One in a fast access lock box, and the one on my belt

    My boy is old enough and has been schooled enough in weapons handling ... Yes! I found out Glocks and magnets go together real well.

    No spousal unit, no kids, just me; guns everywhere. Not stashed, just available.
    There's no such thing as having too much ammo, unless you're on fire or trying to swim!

    Not only convenient in an emergency but loaded. I don't plan on having time to find ammo and then load something I need in an emergency. My 4 dogs know better then to touch my firearms without permission, LOL.

    Yes. There's even one in easy reach in the bathroom in case I'm sitting on the thunder mug making a deposit. I'd so hate to be literally caught with my britches down and unarmed. :tooth:

    While we often say this as a joke, it is true, you can get caught in such a manner, be prepared, even in the bathroom.

    Edited to add: I work at a Automotive Service / fuel station, and many times everyone flakes off without saying anything, and I am there alone.

    Let me just say that every room in my house has security available, besides what I may be carrying and any given time. I'm just plain too darned old to fight, run, or take a whuppin. But not defenseless.

    Yes I usually have an XD, XDM, Glock, or 1911 in a nice padded case, unzipped, loaded, and ready. The guns are in each reach locales around the apartment.

    No...depending one your particular situation (kids, kids friends,etc) and location, it's often the most responsible decision you can make. The safest place for a loaded firearm in a family environment is in the control of a responsible adult.
    Having lived in a high crime area AND having kids I used to carry from the time I woke to the time I went back to bed. Our kids were all responsible and competent in the use of firearms, however, the same could not be said of the friends they brought home - this alone precluded having firearms "laying around". The neighborhood (heck the entire city) was not "safe"...stupid, potentially deadly stuff in the form of home invasions, armed robberies, gang intimidation, armed drug dealers, went down all the time. Consequently, the adults in the home carried. Now, with the kids grown and on their own, having a firearm close at hand while at home is adequate...

    Nope. I haven't watched even one episode of Zombieland. The previews I've seen are too close to late night visits to Walmart! :silly: :tooth:

    Only three outside the safe plus what I carry. The little gun magnets are great for hanging a gun in a convenient place but definitely not child friendly. I collect them all when we have young guests.

    GREAT movie!!! You should watch it Tennmike!!!!
