I don't have any little ones running around- so I leave mine out where I can get to it easy. I do lock up most guns in my gun locker, but leave one long gun and 3 carry guns out. I usually cover them so they can not be seen....but I know where they are.

No paranoia here; one strapped under my desk, one in the kitchen (never know when I may need to shoot diner), bed holster w/extra mag for the boogie man, easy access to the gun locker and a Louisville slugger for whatever Louisville's that need slugging.
No wee folks here so that is not an issue. Oh, and the Misses has her revolver close by if needed. She's a good mag loader too.
Yeah, I only mentioned my handy firearms...the actual levels of defense in my house are: 1. You need to get past the pit bull. 2. Good luck getting past the wife if you hurt her pit bull. Sorry, I can save you from #1, but #2 is beyond me. Highly doubting any one or even small army of reprobates can get through the first two levels, then I will be ready to go Clint-Eastwood on your @$$.

My guns are all over the house, in the kitchen, the living room, bedrooms, even the bathroom , this allows me to play with them every chance I got. On the other hand, all my ammo is locked up. So if someone breaks into my house, I will have many guns to throw at them . OK, one is loaded, but you will never know which one it is

I've got too many little ones so I don't keep guns scattered about. I have 2 guns strategically placed in covert gun safes which look like everyday objects. One contains a Mossberg shockwave and a Glock 17 in the other.

FEG PA63 in the kitchen, Bulgarian Makarov in the living room, Taurus G2 in the bathroom. Multiple choices usually in the bedroom and home office. No kids around obviously.
I've looked at various discrete tactical hiding devices before and will probably either grab a couple or make my own at some point, though odd's are if someone broke in while noone was home and they weren't eaten by the dogs they'd never find the bathroom, kitchen, or living room guns.
I'm a hobby woodworker so I've made a few furniture pieces with extremely discreet hiding places. Those are for long-term/out of house storage. When I'm home, the carry gun is in whatever room I am and I usually have another in the bedroom.
