How do you keep it stored? Loaded, but not chambered with a first round? Safety On/Off? Does if have a flashlight?

I have no kids running around, so I keep this within arms reach from where
I sleep. Both barrels loaded, but the hammers not cocked...keep a good
hand held light with it as well. Loaded with #00 buck, 3 in the side and two slugs as well.

I have kids running around and they know where every weapon is, how to disassemble/reassemble, clean load and operate them. They have had to do it so many times they are more "Oh Dad, again?" then they are curious. They don't play with them. They know if they pull any one of them out, even if just to look at it, they have to strip and reassemble before putting it back.

It's a CAI (century arms international). I bought two of them new and with my
experience on both of them, it took several times out to get them "both"
broke in. The action on both was tight and the fired shells wanted to
stick.
But after a few time out and several rounds and working the action, they both work flawlessly!

First thing to do as any firearm on a new one especially, clean the heck out of them!
It took a while for all the cheap type of oil that came in the gun(s) to come out, even
after several cleanings.

One good thing about them is, that the right barrel is full choke
and the left is modified choke.
The full choke at 15yds will hold about a 4" pattern with #00 and the
mod. will scatter out a "bit" more...first thing I did, I had an old washing
machine setting out and drew me a 8 inch smiley face on it and got back
to 15yds and made a bad day for him! :D

This (these) were my first coach guns (got rid of one) and it took me a
few times to get used to getting both barrels fired simultaneously,
without pulling them hard.

I found that if you figure out the trigger travel on the front trigger, you
can get both barrels to fire right to par. (a bit of dry firing practice)
The the one I kept, I've fired I couldnt say how many rounds, all different
size shot, and havent had not a single problem at all, after it was
broke in and oiled/lubed properly.

Good luck!

Some of our night time stuff. Mossberg 500's. One on each side of the bed. Sig P220/CT grips and light. Also keep a 600 lumen flashlight/w strobe handy.

On my night stand by the bed is a .45 1911A, with extra magazines, and a good flash light. Between the bed and the night stand is a 12 gauge shot gun.

This is how I mount them to the bed. The plastic thingys slide in between the mattress and box springs. There is a place where you can use a clip on holster as well. Pretty neat. I paid about $20 at a gun show for them.
