Now days I have one in the bedroom and I keep my carry gun with me i and my wife has her's so we are not far away at any time.
    Besides one in my Bug-out-bag which is usually pretty close and at night, my daily carry is in a nightstand where the BG's can find it any other stays in my safe. I like KK4U's idea of of a sealed piece of PVC just to keep buried in the backyard for when the gubment decides to start a ban/confiscation campaign.

    I have a P3AT that I carry around like my Blackberry. I generally use the 9mm as a car gun, or as a backup if I'm cleaning the Kel-Tec.

    Become proficient in the use of basic things as weapons - a good martial arts weapons training program can help out with this - and if you're so unfortunate as to be without a firearm, then you'll be able to use virtually any everyday object lethally. You can jam a Bic pen through someone's temple, throat, eye socket or mouth. Most floor lamps are excellent weapons, particularly if you thrust with the bulb end. An inexpensive box cutter, with the blade fully extended, makes a razor-sharp, 5-inch knife. Of course, these alone are no match for a determined perp with a firearm, but it's better than nothing, and the element of surprise may play in your favor when outgunned.

    I don't like the idea of continuously carrying a sidearm. A couple of years ago I was packing a very small, lightweight snub-nosed .38 while mowing my lawn and performing other yard work, due to a new neighbor with a couple of nasty pit bulls that made several attempts to get through the fence to see if I would taste good. I hated every minute of it; it's surprising how even a small firearm can get in the way when you're wielding a rake, shovel or other tool. I eventually resorted to just leaving handy metal objects lying about, 2-3 feet long, very innocuous-looking and just steps away (pieces of angle iron or steel fence posts). Unless you're facing an opponent armed with a firearm, that may be all that's needed, both inside the house and outside. Fortunately, that neighbor just moved out, almost exactly two years after arriving, due to having the house taken over by the bank. The current economic meltdown had a silver lining in this case!

    By the way, my mother was born in eastern Europe in the mid-1920s. Her country was alternately overrun by the Germans and the Russian commies, until her family finally abandoned their home and fled for their lives to the west near the end of WWII. The commies didn't bother confronting armed homeowners. If they suspected or knew that a farmer had a gun in the house, they'd simply lob a grenade or two through a window. People didn't even bother locking their doors: It was better to let the local commissar's thugs in to search the house than have the door kicked in and getting shot or fragged. Consider this carefully, if your only plan now against the Bad Guys is to have guns hidden all over the place. If you bought the guns legally, they already know who you are, where you live, and how many you have. With the current mob of Obamunists in Washington, a day is fast approaching when our Constitution and Bill of Rights will mean nothing. We'll be living in either a tyranny or an anarchy, not too different from the conditions my mother's family faced in World War II. It could become safer to remove our NRA stickers and other firearms-related decals from our cars and house windows and go into stealth mode.

    I have a couple of guns in other rooms besides the bedroom. I have a Glock on me 99% of the time, but I'd like to think I have increased protection in my home, and I'm not always in my bedroom.
    What do you all think about stashing firearms around the house?
    I think its a moronic idea. Just asking for a burglar to find and steal your guns. If Im at home I carry, if Im away I carry. I do have another close at hand for my wife but if we are gone they are all locked up where they cant be found and stolen

    http://pflwoodworking.com/rifle_storaged.htm shows a bookshelf to hide weapons rifles in a compartment behind the shelves with pistols and/or ammo up top under a lockable lid.

    You could also use false bottoms in drawers, under-cabinet compartments in the kitchen/bathroom, or have other types of diversion safes. For rifles or shotguns you could even install a hidden pocket door.

  8. I used to keep them all around the house then my house (just the garage) was broken into. A fair amount of my tools where stolen, luckily they didn't get the gun in the garage... I had locked the main tool box. If they had bothered to go into the house they could have had a field day, and if I came home and got shot ay a robber I armed... well that's just embarrassing.

    Since then I decided no guns are to be available in the house when I'm not. My safe is also in a closet bolted down and has cardboard over it (hoping it is harder to find)

    You are a smart man. I have a wall safe behind my clothes in my master bedroom closet. keyed, unlocked, or 3 digit keypad entry. was like 90.00 on ebay. fits a fair amount of ammo and 4 handguns.

    MY set up is a Safe (firearms inside) on the first floor and a Safe (firearms inside) on the second. When I'm home I carry on me till I get changed for bed. I do not feel that I need to "stash/hide" firearms around the house. I'm pretty comfortable the way I am set up. Other's May differ, BUT I got Rugrats who also have friends over and really do not need ANY accidents. Another person mentioned how their Wife is home and has a permit. My Wife is home also but does not have a permit or actually has ever shot a gun. I planneed on having Her and my Son take the first couple of courses.....Basic Gun and Home this spring, but funds are tight on My end. They WILL take it though, hopefully by summer anyway.
    To answer the question, I'm not for stashing firearms around the house............well, for now anyway.
    (All the above are MY opinions/suggestions ONLY....AND, I like to bust ball's, it's called having a sense of humor. In other words, no intent to offend anyone, so get over it)

    Being that in our house it's just Wifey and I, we have weapons nearby in the rooms we spend most of our time in - The computer/TV room, and the bedroom, not to mention that we both may or may not be CCW at any given time.

    All that changes when the Daughter and Grandbaby (soon to be Grandbabies - WOOHOO!) visit. Then those weapons are unloaded and locked up, if they are not in our immediate control. I want to leave 0 room for a firearms accident in our home, and refuse to lose the life of a loved one due to carelessness.
