    I predict this is a thread that is going to get a lot of "MYOB!" responses. Let's just consider that quoted "MYOB!" as the response for those who wish to reply that way and let those who wish to contribute to do so.

    If they aren't in the gun safe, either in my hand or on my person or, at night, on the night stand next to the bed.

    In a Winchester safe that apparently satisfies the CA safe storage requirement judging by the sticker on it's door. I don't believe in 'safe storage' laws, but I think it's a good idea to lock your stuff up, plus I've got de-humidifiers in there. I keep my more expensive knives in there just because of the de-humidifier.

    Ironically about 5x as many people get stabbed to death as killed with a rifle (http://www2.fbi.gov/ucr/cius2009/offenses/expanded_information/data/shrtable_08.html), but I haven't seen any "safety groups" like the Brady Campaign call for safe storage laws for knives.

    I don't think the Mosin I just ordered is going to fit in my safe ...

    Speaking of knives, gratuitous picture of aforementioned knife attached.

    I have grandkids over often, so if it's not on me it's safely locked and out of reach.

    When I go on vacation, they go to a secure location elsewhere. Paperwork left in my safe will tell my oldest son how to retrieve them.

    Theres a couple 870's and a few sidearms scattered about the house. Everything else is locked up. House guns get locked up when the dog goes with us for road trips.

    One on my belt, one in my pocket. One in the wife's nightstand unless the grandkids are coming over, then it goes in the safe along with most of the rest of them. My SHTF stock are in a secret hiding place, the safe is mostly a diversionary tactic in case BG's ever do burglarize the place they'll get the Mosin's and pellet rifles out of the safe and think that's all I had...

    Three long guns on a rack in master BR, three pistols in master BR closet, one pistol in nightstand.

    No cartridges in any of them but the nightstand gun. :eek:

    Scattered all over the house and loaded. If my daughter ever gives me a grandkid, it will probably take me a week to secure them all.

    Jealous!!

    I want a whole arms room in my house one day! Maybe when I win the lottery.

    Unless you mean the arms room on base for your unit, then I'm sorry.

    In the safe, and one on the nightstand, ready to go. I'm not really comfortable keeping any gun Condition 1 outside of a holster or safe, so I keep it (Glock 21) in my Safariland ALS. Press the tab, and the holster falls right off. I also leave a flashlight and spare mag there.
