I voted yes, but in reality they are not all loaded - just a couple.

Same here



I keep my SD weapons loaded but not my fun guns and such...



I also keep a flash light & pepper spray in my cars (and usually a big knife too)!

All loaded, if not they're not much good unless you plan on pistol whipping someone. :?

I keep my pocket gun loaded as well as my night stand gun loaded. My range guns and hunting guns are not. I do have kids in the house(youngest 10yrs old) but they know that they are off limits unless shooting them with me or if an intruder comes in. I shoot with my kids on a regular basis, and I think they respect the guns and are out of the curiosity stage.

Well, although my wife is hot I usually don't refer to her as a weapon :wink:

I keep my mp40 loaded at all times and on my person if I am awake. At night it is next to my bed on my night stand. My new Bersa T.380 is also loaded now all the time and is eigther on me or in my wifes possesion. If neigther of us has it with us it is locked away unloaded in my safe away from my 6 year old daughter. She has gotten over her curiosity, I took her to the range and she did not like the noise one bit.

Safe as in lack of violence, crime, shootings, etc.. An area where it's not common for these types of things to happen, such as where I live (small town).
