I personally don't have a need to leave guns hidden or just laying around my home. Most are locked in the safe including my EDC at night. In the event of a burgulary at night, I have my HD gun in my handgun safe mounted to my bedframe.
When at home I ALWAYS pocket carry a small .380. I know it's not the best caliber, but it is always handy and in my possession. My 12ga is chambered in the safe in case I need it and have time to get it.
