Just wondering if you blew someones head off in your bedroom, could you just clean it up and move on? Or would you always remember the brains on the wall?

I would stay, people around you would know not to try to get in that house.

Plus it would not bother me at all knowing I was protecting myself.

Ok so theres two issues -
Haunting by the dead perp
Bad memories of killing someone make you crazy and stuff you kids in the oven

Unless I was in a house I really liked I think I might have a little trouble sleeping in a room where I had killed someone. If it was the den or the baby's nursery or the hallway I think I'd be ok.

Yea, that is true if it was in a bed room or something it would be strange to sleep there but for me that would be as far as it would go.

stay. if someone puts you in a situation of where you have to take their life, it is not your fault. now granted you don't escalate the situation to make it one where deadly force is justified...

i think the bigger question is: who sleeps with a locked and loaded handgun next to them?

if i owned a pistol i probably wouldent keep it locked and loaded next to my bed. i would probably keep the mag out of the gun and both next to one another under my matress or in the bed side table. locked and loaded seems a bit to risky.

put yourself here: someone busts into your room. you go for your gun... but you have to grab the mag, punch it in, then rack the slide before you get a round off. see how fast you can do that from a deep sleep :)

The owners manual for my PT1911 had some mention of this... they said that while it's the safest in terms of weapons safety, when the weapon is used for defense only highly trained expert should have it completly unloaded. I think they don't want to be held responsible for when somebody gets killed while tryng to load their weapon while the bad guy is approaching.

I have put some thinking into keeping weapons with rounds in the chamer or not, all the weapons around my house have mags loaded with high caps but most dont have rounds chambered. I figure if I wake up to the dogs barking (2 110 pound pit bulls) I can rack the M4 and be ready for action. I also keep a 12Ga shotgun in my room as back up, nothing beats a good ol pump gun! But even in that I dont have a round chambered. Only takes a second to chamber it but its a safety that I can do quickly and it makes a great sound :)

I also keep the AK, USP, another 12Ga, 20 GA and a 9mm VERY well hidden around the house.

Figure im ready for the Navy SEALS to attack...

haha. it sounds like you are ready for a small assault. but 1 vs. a team of seals = instant death for you!

i keep my 9mm, round chambered, w/ 2 extra mags. no safe on my gun. now if you have kids... i surely hope you wouldn't have hidden loaded guns in the house.

well im betting the farm on the fact that ill wake up when he comes in the house, not my room. if he busts in my room, chances are im dead meat if thats his intention, weather i have a locked and loaded gun or not.

from a normal sleeping position i can open my bed side table drawer, pull out my AS Baretta, get a mag in it and chamber a round in about 6-8 seconds. only about 4 of that is actually loading the gun, the other 4 is rolling over and opening the drawer. its not as fast as i would like but i think it's plenty of time if i heard someone fumbling around in my kitchen or bust in my front door. In fact, if thats the case I'm confident i could get out of bed and find a better position as well.

if i was the unlucky sob that was woken up with an armed man IN my room. i would go for my baseball bat. its not a full size, its like 3/4 scale. its really nice one hand club, excellent for braking knees. because my door is so close to my bed, i think i would have better luck trying to get in close and disarming as apposed to puling my own gun and attempting to shoot, regardless of where or how its loaded/unloaded.

my main reasoning for keeping the mag out is because of the other people i WANT in my house. if friends come over, there is a chance they could bring little ones. its a slim chance but a chance none the less. and im really afraid that i would just forget i have a loaded gun in my room and god forbid a weapon i own kills someone, and it not be MY intention.

of course there is a myriad of tangents that the above situation bring to mind. if i cant remember i have a loaded gun in the house, i probably shouldn't own one. or i could make it a nightly routine to prep the gun before bed and then safety and remove all ammunition in the morning. but the fact still remains. i will have a locked and loaded gun, in my home. im not cool with that. loaded mags separate from guns is ok. my rational is, if someone is old enough to get a full mag into a pistol, chances are i have already showed this person my weapon and have explained, and more importantly had them explain they understand the basic safety principals.

of course nothing is full proof, there is no such thing as 100% safe. someone can always get my safe combination, or the key to the trigger lock. but i feel really odd not taking a most basic of safety precautions, and leaving the mag out if im not using the gun.

agreed, if lethal force is truly necessary then I see no reason why there would be any misgivings about acting accordingly, they did come into YOUR house after all.

locked and loaded, no. but the mag is in the well/snap cap in the chamber, all tucked away in a touchkey safe, as inconspicuous as can be. rather be with, than without. god willing it won't be necessary, but anything can happen...

"Two tears in a bucket, mother fuck it".

If a hurts my wife or kid, I'm not going to feel in the least bit bad about pulling his coat. Nor should I.
If he were in my house well then it's on and God be with him.
When he's down and dead in my home or on my property I very much doubt I'd feel like moving. If anything I'd stay for a spell until the communities short term memory has moved on to some other item.

I don't believe in feeling bad for people who have no feelings for me, as based on their actions.
I hope to God I never have to deal with as much.
One 1911 stored in my carry holster in the closet with a full mag but child locked.
A second in an e-safe wthin two paces from the bed cocked & locked. Also I usually have at least one paintball marker teched and ready to rock n my office or at a side door for squirrels and stray dogs.

" Trespassers will be shot, survivors will be shot again"

If someone breaks into my home, God have mercy on his soul because i surely won't. On my property I am the hunter, no pity, no mercy, no sympathy, and as the 11th commandment states, Thou shalt leave no witnesses. This is BFE, so there's no one to hear the gunshots, the screams or find the body. You pick my house to raid, the only thing I have to say is You done did fuck up son
I keep my 226's loaded at all times and Benalli 1014 has 5 in the pipe+ 10 on sling. 226's are on nightstand and 1014 is under bed. If I go to the next room I have a vast arsenal at my disposal. Oh and if you try to run once I'm pissedI can cover the windy ass road for 1400yds my bay window make a great bench and the .408 can reach you.
I'm a vindictive person, sue me, fuck with me and suffer my rath.
