    Accessibility of Firearms in your home.

    For the longest time, I had youngens around and the only option was to "lock them or wear them". I no longer have that issue. I can safely leave my firearms strategically around the house. Everyone in the home is a responsible adult over 18 and well versed on their operation and usage.

    I'd like my rifle to be more accessible. Right now, it's well secured and getting to it in a hurry would not be ideal. I can easily have it leaning in a corner, but now I'm concerned about someone breaking in and stealing it.

    What options are there to strategically and safely position firearms around your house?

    Lock it up when you leave. It is what we do. Just what you have to do. Pistols as well. Takes a minute.

    Where you live might make a difference, also what your personal schedule is. We live in a relatively safe place and both work out of the house, finding a good time to rob us would be problematic.

    I taught my kids how to shoot, safety, where the guns and ammo were early. Self defense is a human right, do what you feel is prudent. If I lived where CM does I'd be locking them up too.

    I'd say I'm in a really safe place (whatever that means) and yes home a good part of the day. So true, getting in here would be a challenge, but I'm not reaching out and sending invites to test me.

    It is part of my routine if I and the spouse leave at the same time. There is usually someone or someones here. It would be hard to catch the place empty. Daughter lives next door. Common back yards fenced in. Kids are usually in the yard if not in school.

    I wouldn't mind having an AR pistol mounted to the side of the nightstand between it and the bed. Not really visible to anyone, but there if needed.
    You see me empty, sir, do not pause and inquire. Simply assume and refill.

    I buy those magnets and love them. I hang them high enough that if you can reach it you know how to use it.
