I keep my 642 in loaded in my pocket 24/7.
The rest are locked in a gun safe. The exception is one rifle I keep handy, (unloaded) in case that mountain lion who's been hanging around desides to have my horses for dinner.
A partial exception, I might have one or part of one stuck in the lathe or milling machine, being repaird or built.
