I don't whether AR had a loaded handgun or not in his bedroom. But living in isolated houses without a telphone most of the time, I would not think it unreasonable to have a handgun.
He had been burgled whilst he was away and this might have reinforced the need for security.
I had several relations in the 1950's who had loaded guns in their houses and I don't think it was uncommon.
Perhaps someone could research whether AR ever held an arms licence.
