I store my guns loaded, I'm not sure your average Heathen is going to wait while I unlock and load my pistol or shotgun. I figure the dogs will slow them down enough to make a positive ID before I send them to hell with a stomach ache.

Gasoline stored in basement..... a slight leak will allow the gasoline vapor to fall to the floor and mix with oxygen. Slowly mixture increases in volume and rises until it reaches the pilot light on the water heater. Now the A Star Ride has turned his house into a homemade fuel/air bomb.

Quiz: Will the homeowner's insurance company cover the damage?

I dont know what building codes they use where you are but Im in Va and a friends new constriction townhome has a gas water heater in the garage instlled right next to the engine compartment when you pull in.

I have a gas water heater in my garage. Should I turn it off and just take cold showers from now on or move all the vehicles outside?

You can't see the difference between a garage with a large vented door and a closed in basement? You'll note that connected garages are always separated from the living quarters by a step that's designed to keep petroleum distillate fumes (heavier than air) from flowing into those living quarters.

But if you want to store gasoline in your house, well, be my guest. Just expect that after the fire and investigation the insurance company won't be paying off. Store loaded guns too. Put them all together with the old dynamite, bleach and ammonia. And run with scissors.... don't forget that.

That guy isn't me.

Yeah, well the chances are pretty slim that anything will occur. And having a small vent near the ground to the outside would remove the danger of fumes. However if he does have a fire the insurance company will not pay off and the city will write him a fat citation, plus he will be liable for any damages if the fire spreads onto others' property. I will guarantee you that local codes do not allow him to store fueled vehicles in the house proper.

Just make sure that you don't use hollowpoint ammunition against those bears. It tends to flatten on the skin. I recommend .44 300gr Sierra bear busters. don't leave home without them.

Does your having a full garage mean that the laundry appliances are kept on your front porch?
