    I now keep guns unloaded mostly and am getting better at keeping ammo in known locations. I donít want to watch my house burn because I answered Ďeverywhereí to that question. Itís a whole lot easier to just carry when at home, which is my practice anyway. No real need to reach for a stashed gun if thereís one on my hip. Iím not anticipating or planning around a Mr & Mrs Smith type shootout.

    Iím not saying that Iím against strategically placed guns but just remember that if thereís a fire, youíll be asked to identify where everything is that could pose a hazard to a fireman.
    That is interesting. When I went through the Indianapolis Citizens Academy, I asked about their protocol if they were aware of guns/ammo on the premises. The Fire Captains response was that they didn't worry about it because the bullets aren't all that lethal if they are not contained. I thought that response was interesting.

    That said, I don't stash guns and ammo around because I have the grandkids running around quite a bit.

    I am happy now with keeping a pistol on my hip throughout the day and having an AR downstairs and one upstairs. Everything else is locked up unloaded with the exception of my nightstand gun. Thatís locked up but I donít want to continuously load and unload it, so it stays loaded. The rest get loaded when they go into the carry rotation and unloaded when they are replaced.

    Itís not the best plan for everyone but it works for me.

    That's true for ammo that is not in the chamber of a firearm. The projectile fired from a loaded gun that discharges due to a fire is the same as if it were fire intentionally.

    I don't have children around so I'm a little more free for my gun placement when they're not in the safe. But anyway that you can secure them up high and probably go without a round chambered.

    There are a few reasons I do not have a round chambered in a firearm:

    - It is in the safe
    - It is being cleaned
    - It is being shown to someone
    - It was just purchased or sold

    If I have it stashed for defensive purposes it has a round in the chamber

    I think if the fire has gone on long enough to heat the receiver of a firearm enough to cook off a chambered round the house is probably already long gone and the firefighters should just stand back and watch.

    Sounds like fodder for Myth Busters though...how hot will the receiver have to be and will the round make it out of the barrel? How does an ammo can respond to fire? Go off one at a time or go kabloie like a Claymore? These sorts of questions are right up their alley.
