Cocked and locked in a holster attached to my bed.
Long guns in storage have magazines loaded none in the chamber.
This is due to the remote location and need to protect livestock from predators.
Depending on the threat, coyote vs mountain lion or bear, I have the proper weapon ready for the threat. Merely chamber a round and I'm good to go. Really do not want to face a bear with a 223. Do not need the 338 win mag for a coyote or feral dog.
