    With all due respect, I have WAY too much respect for my wife to lie to her or hide things (especially my handgun) from her. If you want to hid a gun from your wife, go for it, I would rather be honest with mine.

    I agree with Daven...except with me it's FEAR!
    Fear of the never ending, relentless, non stop... "discussion"!

    Geez, I hide guns from my wife all the time. Have to. If I don't and she spots one, and she likes it, suddenly it's not my gun anymore.

    The most recent casualty of "spousal ownership transfer" was an S&W 64-3. I liked that gun for the whole few hours I owned it.

    I guess the upside is I still get to clean and maintain them.

    Respect

    My situation, like each of yours, is personal. I do my best to protect my home, by having motion lights surrounding the exterior, as well as camera's and a system, and steel security doors, I feel safe at home.

    The two most important aspects of my life are God and Family. I MUST respect both.

    As I am sure you each respect yours, my wife had a gun in her face by an ex-boyfriend and that scared her for all these years of guns. I have come a long way from the day's of keeping it in a safe, and I am ok keeping in in the closet, It's more important to me to show respect for my love, my wife, than anything else. I live my life as close to the Bible as I can, and respecting her fears and wishes is important to me. If my dog barks (which he does if anyone comes NEAR our home, I get the gun, if my security lights go off, I get my gun and check the camera's.

    And don't even say she doesn't respect me for asking me to keep it in the closet, if you have a wife who had a gun shoved in her face (point blank against the forehead) then you can say something, but even then, don't judge her feelings/fears. She did agree to go to the range with me by spring so I say- baby steps, baby steps.

    My live in girlfriend (I hope that doesn't offend) is a nurse who treats spinal cord and severe brain injury patients. Over the years she has had many "accidental" gunshot injuries so is understandably anti gun. She does respect my wishes and doesn't even say anything anymore when I "strap up" to take the dog for a walk. We live in a rural area known for wolves and mountain lions so it makes sense to be prepared.
    My CC goes in the nightstand or my briefcase when it's not on my hip and sometimes on top of the dresser. We do not have ANY kids around so that isn't a concern but I am EXTRA carefull when there will be anyone else in the house. Too many people are killed or wounded by the uneducated handling guns.
    Your choice has to be based on your personal beliefs and living situation.

  6. Guns In The House

    There are no easy answers, but maybe what worked for me will work for you. My wife didn't really want guns around the house. Where she grew up, nobody did guns, at least among her neighbors/friends/family.

    Well I have a very good friend who has hundreds of guns (literally) and also is occasionally called as an expert witness on gun control matters in his state. He and his wife both carry. Anyway one time when we were visiting he suggested we all go shoot a few rounds. It is easy at their place as they have their own range right near their house. Since three of us were obviously all for it, and my wife is a good sport, all four of us went. We had a great time. We started with 22's, killing lots of boxes and targets, and very slowly progressed to larger calibers. My wife said the .357 was a bit much, but the 38's were ok. It was a great day, and both of us learned a lot about handling handguns. Our friends were VERY picky about safety, and real good at explaining, not a bad thing.

    We live very rural, which can sometimes raise worries,. That Christmas my wife surprised me. She asked for a 20 gauge shotgun, and a 38 revolver, for Christmas! Wow. Both just to have around the house "in case". Ok, two guns coming up.

    I put a range on our property so we could both practice. We have fun at it.

    Then when OBUMA took over, things were even more worrying. So we both took an all day class with range training, got our CCW permits, and went to a store that rented guns and had an indoor range. I knew what I wanted, a Ruger LCR. Wife tried several guns, trying to see if she liked pistols. The little Glock she found was a honey, but then she tried the LCR. Story over, two LCR's for us.

    We now both carry when we go to town.

    So maybe you could try above?

    As to where we keep guns? Anywhere and everywhere, EXCEPT when little kids come visit, then they all get locked in my room.

    Have fun out there, and stay safe.

    Yes I also have this problem have not shot my AR in months, and my day to day carry (G-27) is NEVER more than a arms reach away, and the 12 gauge is behind the bedroom door, and if I was able to get to the basement the BG had better have brought the whole hood with him

    On the nightstand. All the time. Also keep one within arms reach while in the house, on me when I go out.
