the little shack i rent out is all of 250 sqaure feet so i know whats going on everywhere at any given time... When I am home, the 220 is sitting on the computer desk where i spend most of my home time (homework, reading, computer, tv)... When I am home and sleeping, it sits on the computer desk chair which is within reach of the couch I sleep on, but not really able to be bumped away if I toss and turn. Its kept with 8 in the mag and 1 in the chamber, decoked, obviously. also on the desk chair is a cell phone, Benchmade folder, and a flashlight.
When I leave and it doesn't come with me (most of the time... no CCW here) it gets unloaded and locked up safe and sound.
