I think this is sound advice, given the man is such a deadly weapon that he is surrounded by Secret Service agents 24-7 to protect US from HIM.
Simply priceless! Lol

Well, I hate to be the turd in the punch bowl, but mine is now unloaded and in the safe, replaced with a USGI M1 Carbine, also in a safe in my bedroom. I CCW a Kahr P9, and it goes pretty much everywhere with me. I keep it on the night stand over night, but not in plain sight, on the outside chance that someone might break in undetected. I leave the safe with just a short way to go for the second combination number, and all I have to do then is turn to the third. I figure the handgun would easily buy me enough time to bring one or more long guns into play, and I don't have to wrestle with the safe every night. Works for me.

No kids, magazine 7 rounds full of 00 buck with one in the tube and safety on. We have a bed rack it stays in. When we used to have little kids at home, we put a rack high up inside the closet and above the closet entrance door. It remained out of sight but without one in the chamber back then. It provided quick access for my wife and I on our tiptoes, but the kids didn't even know it was there and if they did, would have to go to extremes to even reach it. With the door open, it was above your head and unless you just happened to look straight up there, you'd never see it. As the kids got a little older, we took them out and let them shoot. A great respect was learned very early. You can either gun-proof your kids or kid-proof your guns. It all depends on their maturity, demeanor and upbringing.

Tube full of 00 buck, and one chambered, safety on, light off: leaned against headboard with a sock over the barrel all within easy reach when laying in bed. Backup is the Glock holstered on the nightstand, same condition except no safety.

No kids in house, ever, so no worries about that.

I have the same setup. The safe door is opened and the front of the safe door faces the bedroom door. I can grab the shotgun as I take cover behind the safe door.

If I ever need to grab it, I'm hoping that the sound of chambering a round will be enough to send the intruder running.

If I need something faster, there are several loaded pistols in the safe. No need to waste time chambering a round.

I have no fear of being taken by surprise because there are three large dogs, in the house, that bark if they hear anything unusual. I would consider anyone crazy enough to come in, with all the barking, dangerous.

Rem 870, magazine fully loaded, safety off, a round in chamber with the breech open just beyond where the trigger will not fire the weapon. It's kept under the edge of the bed between lint free towels.

In case of emergency, all I have to do is grab it, close the breech, and engage.

This requires anyone who gains access to the weapon to manipulate the slide release, take off the safety, rack and load the shotgun, then fire. This is a very safe way to store a shotgun if you have toddlers about. Also will buy you time if a bad guy gets your weapon if they are unfamiliar with a Pumps' manual of arms!
This will probably work best for my situation. I'm going to wall mount the shotgun in the closet, probably above the door. Out of reach to a small child, but easy access for an adult.
