You psycho, you.

I always leave mine lying around on the couch so I can pick it up at whatever discretion :)

What, you don't take it to the thundercloset?

I dry fire mine alot. It helps strenghten the muscles you use to shoot. I usually do it with the heavier varmint gun. Back in late 80's I did it with my H&K91. it stays in the safe now since I don't wnat to many guns around the house.

yes sir you are freaking nuts.

You don't idly handle your circular saw while you surf, do you?

Of course, maybe you live in a rough neighborhood, and need instant access to high powered weapons. Don't shoot your eye out.
Link Posted: 3/31/2006 8:44:17 AM EDT
All you guys that do keep them around the house, what do your wives say about that? :-P My mom doesn't like guns so I have to keep it locked up in the safe.

Do I keep my AR out and ready all the time? No, that's what the shotgun is for.

-------

ETA: Unless I'm watching 24, then I have the AR out.

I have shot so many invisible zombies with magic ammunition that it ain't even funny. Well, then again, it is quite funny

Thundercloset that is funny. I allways say I am going to a meeting in the Oval Office.

It's not totally uncommon for me to have my rifle near me. Especially when surfing the firearms corners of the web. I dry fire it, and use it for reference on discussions. My wife doesn't mind much.

You actually watch TV with it across your lap?
That is just wierd.
I leave mine under my pillow where it belongs.

I am not the best with a pistol, so I often work on my stance and on drawing during the day (I work from a home office).

That said, I often have a rifle or parts on my desk as I clean them during teleconferences and other crap meetings.

doesn't everyone have a shower gun?
Link Posted: 3/31/2006 10:09:58 AM EDT
I only did what you're doing only during the '92 L.A. riots when I lived there at the time, for three straight days (even at night in my bed ).

These days at least one AR is ready to go but not close by and I just have any of my pistols handy within arms reach.
Link Posted: 3/31/2006 11:11:57 AM EDT
I virtually always have my AR within line of sight when I'm at home.

The wife get's a bit testy about it though. As she's standing there holding it for me as I munch chips and watch TV she complains, "This thing is getting heavy! Can't you hold it for a while?" If she keeps that attitude up, next week I'll have her follow me to the thundercloset so I can read the Shotgun News w/ both hands.

YOU GUYS ARE FRIGGING NUTZOIDS!!!

I keep mine in the case, where it belongs; I usually have a cheap balisong knife to practice opening and clising it; I dulled out the blade and rounded the tip with a Dremel and I twirl it around ever so often.

If I want to fondle a firearm, I got my Airsoft guns for that.

I aim mine at the t.v. and pretend to shoot the bad guys. And when I watch war movies, I'm right there in the fight. My wife is jealous of my AR. I look at it more than I look at her
Link Posted: 3/31/2006 9:29:05 PM EDT
GLOCK 19, SA 1911, M590A1 and of course one of my beloved AR's all within reach when sitting here at the puter desk. Sometimes all of this paper work gets in my way. The fiance doesn't seem to mind...

...and that's why she is my fiance!!

Mine are usually in a case, to take shooting the next day. Either that or they are on my workbench for cleaning. Maybe I'm just weird, I dunno...

eta: Although, when I get my G19, I'm making a holster that bolts to the side of my computer desk

Whenever I am home, I have a shotty leaning in a corner in my room so it is handy incase some jehovia's witnesses come. I carrry too so I usually always have hand gun on my person or on my desk somewhere handy. There is an old proverb from some foreign country that says never be more than 10 steps away from you sword.

The AR pistol (Bushy 97S) has taken center stage (lap) at my house. Getting old and it makes it much easier to shoot the TV bad guys/zombies now-a-days.
Link Posted: 4/1/2006 4:19:14 AM EDT
I do most all the time. I actually put them all in the case the other day but ten minutes later I was wanting to end the war and save the trees so I got them back out.

Years ago when I was in the military, I was on a team that played the evil Russian army. We had uniforms to match the soviet weapons we used.

I came home one day and decided to clean my personal AK. I was still in my soviet para-jumpsuit. Without thinking I turned on HBO and Red Dawn was on.

A short time later my wife came home. There I was, sitting on the couch, in my soviet jumpsuit, with my AK, watching Red Dawn. She asked me if I was wearing my new junior paratrooper pajamas. To this day I can't live that down.......

I'm not allowed in the TV room with a rifle anymore. At least not if I'm wearing a soviet uniform...

I have my rifle slung around my chest when I walk around the house. Then I have my rifle under my pillow when I'm sleeping.
Link Posted: 4/1/2006 8:11:40 AM EDT
I've been known to fondle a rifle or a Glock or two. Even old Col. Jeff Cooper recommends dry firing at characters on TV for practice on various types of moving targets (making sure your weapon is unloaded, of course). And them deer hunting shows are tailor-made for some fun dry firing!

"Junior paratrooper pajamas"! Now that is truly funny!

I've been caught in similar embarrasing circumstances. It's amazing how women can turn the most innocent of things into a lifelong embarassment!

Great story, thanks for sharing, now I don't feel so dumb about some of the silly scenes I've been caught in!

I *MIGHT* occasionally fondle my AR or a shotgun when I watch TV. Certainly not very often. On the
other hand, my pistol safe is next to my computer, so fondling a pistol while surfing happens quite a bit.
