Absolutely, loaded s&w 642 under the bed, enough to provide cover while i dash for the closet for the mossberg "persuader"... I live alone and no kids, and house is alarmed like ft knox with video surveillance to my phone. I work too hard so i can have nice stuff, junkies beware!
Loaded Beretta PX4 storm sub compact sitting right by my nightstand, Loaded mossburg 870, My two sons have loaded 22's (loaded clips not in the gun) under their beds for added saftey.
If my Brazilian Mastiff & boxer don't deter the person entering my house either of us will get them... We all go to the shooting range quite often and my youngest son (13) can group his 22 in a 1/2" in the center of the bullseye at 25yrds.
I have two grand-sons that just about live here, but I started teaching them early about guns and handling them, just like my dad taught me and my brother when growing up. I keep mine loaded on the bed rail between the mattress and the rail where it is hidden from view by the sheets/blanket, so I only have to reach 6" to the side of the bed for the loaded .45 1911.
