No kids, and the gun leans up in the corner, atop the bedside table so it's out of the dogs way - cruiser ready (full mag, empty chamber) for grab-rack-bang reliability and safety. Pistols are equally unsecured, in condition one (chamber full, mag full, mag in gun) and ready to go into action with a simple trigger press. This arrangement may not suit everyone but we have analyzed and revised our policies over the years and have not had any issues with this setup - it is the best combination of readiness and safety for our situation.
Will try to post pic when possible. Maybe tonight.
