Cuz your .45 is on you or within your reach? My rifles have trigger locks and ammo in seperate locked containers. Add a few kids to the mix, the nosy 3-7 year old types and see if you want to leave loaded rifles around. Sherm

Me. Since I don't have any kids. None that I know of yet [;)] I keep a pistol and rifle and/or shotgun loaded at all times, and secreted in different places in the apt. So call me nutty [whacko]

becouse the chances of needing a rifle over a handgun in a home defense situation are alot smaller then needing a handgun

I keep handguns loaded because if I need them, I want them ready without delay for defense. If I need the rifle, I'll have to go get it, and chambering a round is no appreciable delay. Further, I usually have somewhere between 5 and nine rounds available in the handguns, where the rifle is usually kept with a pair of 30 round magazines. One out of five is a real reduction, one out of sixty one is no big deal.

Okay, you're nutty. Seriously, I don't like to keep one in the chamber of a rifle because you can't decock them. I just don't like that constant stress on the parts. No, I don't like cocked and locked 1911's either for the same reason, not safety. Not knocking, just not for me.

Have a loaded AR in the safe and a loaded mossberg stored in the bedroom. Because my school is in a crappy neighborhood, I've got to be on my toes at all times. Can't put a country boy in the city and expect him not to get "nervous"! Keving67
