In order of importance:



Epi-Pen (for my child)
Phone
Tac-light (not mounted)
Glock 19 (CCW piece, goes from hip to drawer nightly)
spare mag paddle holster

That is all that I allow in the go-to drawer.

Last resort if I can get to it:

870 in the closet, which is due to be replaced with my most recent AR build once I take a class and get more proficient with it.

Birdmang, I am assuming that is only after they cross the croc filled moat, mine field, and get past the cane corso.



I have my mother in law wear a thong and cheetah mask and patrol the compound. Strangely, we haven't had an intruder yet. Come to think of it, we aren't even getting the mail anymore.

I keep something larger than 9mm and a 20 ga with turkey loads close by.

Haha my friend has a cane corso, when he brings it over in the summer it just walks around the backyard, after sniffing/meeting everyone whom is there. if anyone else comes over/sneaks in the yard he would tear them up. Beautiful dog, but makes me nervous because he paces and is always on alert!

CZ P-01 9mm with night sights and Streamlight TLR-1s strobing LED light. I know it is a bit "Mall Ninja" but it is a nice size gun for bedside use and the light works well. And I have another P-01 as a range gun so it can live in my bedside safe.

Due to the amount of noise generated by the canine advance team I'll probably have plenty of time to arm myself more heavily if needed...

I keep a M&P45 with laser on my night stand and just bought a nice used TLR-2 for it (not here yet). I love the M&P and am sure the TLR-2 will be a better option than the laser alone. My ammo of choice is Federal HST 230gr +P. Also, though not ON my night stand I have a Saiga .410 shotgun with 00 buckshot. It's not yet converted so, for the moment, I'm stuck with standard magazines.

1) Our English Bulldog, Dixie, is our alarm at the foot of the bed.
2) Have a master switch by my bed that I can turn every light in the house on/off with a single switch.
3) Cell phone on top of night stand.
4) S&W 1911 loaded with Winchester Ranger-T hollow points in the night stand drawer
5) In the corner beside the night stand, I have a Benelli Nova h2o pump with a +2 extension full of #1 buck.

If ever needed, my wife gets the 1911 and goes to the master bathroom in our bedroom with the cell phone and I'm grabbing the Nova pump. My son knows if he hears any kind of loud commotion in the middle of the night to crawl under his bed which has a series of cabinet style doors/drawers where one is just a large opening until either I or his mother comes and gets him.

I live in an apartment by myself, there is a main entrance that is always locked, and the front door of my apartment is always locked, I'm not too concerned about anyone breaking in the front. They would have to be very motivated. However, a sliding screen / glass door is all that protects me in my bedroom. I keep an old Mossberg 500 loaded up with 3" 00 within arms reach, just in case.

In my living room I have a Mossberg Mariner 590 loaded up with 3" 00 by my couch, and an old S&W .357 mag by my computer desk.

S&W 327 Night Guard (upgraded with trigger job and lasergrips). If 8 rounds of 357 magnum won't change your mind, nothing will. No guard dogs, just watch dogs. If you are more worried about my dogs than me, your priorities are grossly out of whack.

USAF_Vet ~ You have 2.5 bulldogs. :)

(Primary)Rem 870 tactical, (BUG)XD9 fullsize, and an (Early Warning)American Pitbull Terrier named Cain (actually a big scardy cat, but sounds intimidating)

What keeps us saf(er) at night? Collierville and Bartlett, TN. They are the 'bait'.

Those two huge suburbs are much closer to areas which have a large number of burglars, but with few exceptions, break-ins take place when people are at work or school: about 1000-1100.
Otherwise, they wait until people leave for a Christmas party in December, or are out of town with two newspapers in the driveway.

We would never move to an area which does not seem safe.

I have a tactical doberman and a tactical rottweiler. They are highly customized - they wear Class 3a body armor and can bench press 400lbs. They are fully dura-coated with a Digicam finish, and were recently fitted with head mounted lasers.

The last brother who tried to break in only managed to say '***?' before they ate him.

Whatever I carried that day usually ends up next to my bed that night, and I always have the gunlocker keyes so I can get to something a little bigger.

But if things really go south, I've been keeping Gecko45 in a shed out-back for years. I feed him a steady diet of beefjerky and red bull.

I use a shotgun exclusivly for HD. I have no need for something concealable or anything capable of making a shot longer than 12 yards (the longest uninterupted space in my home) My plan is simple, take cover while the wife calls the police and let the bad guy come to me.

First line of defense is a 22lb mutt, she isn't dangerous but she sure is loud and relentless. Next up is an old, fat lazy cat that you cant walk down the hall without stepping on (wreeeoowwww!) then you will meet up with me and a 1911 or a XDm .40, both with nite sights and a 150 lumen flashlight in my other hand.

It's great to have pets, especially dogs. They will let you know when someone is close by. Also, dogs can buy you some time to retrive you self defense tools.

I love my dogs more than most people, when asked one time about my Rottie, "did you get him for protection" I quicklly answered, no He has me for that. anyone that messes with my dogs is in more trouble than they ever dreamed of, not from the dogs, they were never taught to be aggressive, I have granddaughters, 1-10, and they never even knocked one over, they caught a few of them when thay were falling with proper placement of a body part, but they know more about loyalty then any person I ever met. They are the best thing that ever happened to me.

I keep an Armscor .38 in my drawer and propped up beside the drawer is a Mossberg Maverick 88 in 12 guage. Just recently got the 12 guage and before practiced extensively with the .38 and would be more than comfortable using it for defense instead. Either way it is a bad idea to break into my place.
