November 11, 2012, 12:25 AM
Hmmm... The nearest gun to me is a F2000 or AUG, depending which guard is closer to the door right now. I don't think they would be too happy if I grabbed one...

November 11, 2012, 12:27 AM
Lets see... A Remington 870 12ga. Unloaded:eek: So basically it is a big club.

The other closest is either a S&W MP .40 and .40 compact. The S&W's are loaded with Hornady TAP.

And a Super Blackhawk in .44 Mag. (My baby right thar:)) The Super Blackhawk (5 1/2inch barrel) has Federal American Eagle in it. It's my EDC. :D Just kidding. To darned heavy for that. Sadly...:(

Head, or feet? (I'm laying on the couch)

Got a Taurus PT92 on the table next to my head. An Enfield No1 Mk4 I was working on propped against the end of the couch at my feet. No ammo for it, but it'd make a better club than an AR pistol. :evil:

Though in his defense, at the exact MOMENT I read this thread the nearest firearm to me was a Ruger Super BlackHawk in 357 Maximum with a 10 inch barrel. It wasn't loaded.

I suspect it would make a reasonable club.

There's an Sp101 in .357 not too far away from that which IS loaded.

At the head of the bed is the Mossberg 500. At the foot of the bed is my AR15 ready to rock and roll. At the left side of the bed and within arms length is my CZ 75 TS and my Sig X5 L1.

Funny. This thought occurred to me last night as I laid in bed. If I heard a noise, and I just did, what loaded firearm would I have available immediately? This is not something I particularly think about when I am at home even though the "self defense talk" would not indicate that.

In my case at that particular moment, it was a GP-100. But when I read this thread, and my current location (sitting in front of my desk), it's a loaded Ruger LCR-22.

Things happen... I felt my very first earthquake yesterday. I had no control or advance warning and that made me feel unprepared.

Mos 500A w/ factory synthetic & 18.5 w/front bead -- loaded w/ 3" Rem #00 buck.

A longtime companion, over half my life, fired < 100 times. It is for that day in whatever form it might come. ostly, these days--in case of my neighbor's bull if it comes calling.

November 12, 2012, 12:25 PM
I have an SKS right beside my bed. It's an original Tula 1950 with attached bayonette, sling etc. Because of the storage laws in Canada, it's in a gun cabinet (alone) which I put the key in at night. It also has 8 stripper clips in their appropriate pouches which have rounds on them at the ready.

There is also one stripper clip sitting beside the gun if quick loading is needed.

I figure this firearm in this state should suit any need I should have for a firearm in a hurry.

November 12, 2012, 12:39 PM
At work, which is a no no zone.... closest weapon of any type is either a pair of scissors, manufacturer unknown, or a ball-point pen, a Bic Mk2, medium point, in black. :-D

November 12, 2012, 12:53 PM
My Glock 27 is sitting on the end table by my couch. Right now I'm using a Glock 23 mag wearing the grip extension loaded with Winchester Ranger hollowpoints.

Drawer of the coffee table directly beneath my laptop


November 12, 2012, 06:33 PM
It's a Bulgarian Makarov with Silver Bear HP ammo. I keep it nearby in case someone knocks on the door in the evening. Even with the peephole in the door I hate being on the other side of a standard exterior door from someone I haven't identified.

November 12, 2012, 06:33 PM
I'm in my office so let's see, Glock 32 IWB. Kakr CM9 in my laptop bag and AK-74 2 feet from me.

If I'm at home,,,
It's a S&W Model 36 loaded with wadcutters.

I've seen what those paper punchers do to a 125 pound dog,,,
I think they will do just fine for a bogeyman at my door.

I live in a town with lots of small mobile home lots,,,
My neighbor's living room is only 12 feet from my front door.

If I'm out and about,,,
In my Gun Toten Mamas briefcase (https://www.guntotenmamas.com/cgi-bin/commerce.cgi?preadd=action&key=GTM0155),,,
Lives my CZ-75B with an extra 16 round magazine.

If I'm casually out and about,,,
It's a Bersa Thunder 380,,,
Or a Taurus 22-PLY.



November 13, 2012, 04:01 PM
Diamondback 380 in a 5.11 undershirt holster. If it was any closer to me I'd have to move to San Francisco.

November 13, 2012, 04:39 PM

November 13, 2012, 09:18 PM
About 4 feet away is a T/C Black Diamond XR inline muzzle loader. I's got 90 grains of triple 7 powder behind a 240 grain T/C XTP saboted bullet. Primer is in the cargo pocket of my hunting pants in the next room. If someone breaks in, it will make a great club.

The .357 model 19 SW was easy to reach! it was in my shoulder holster!
Its usually the Model 19 under my arm or the Charter Arms Bulldog .357. Guess I prefer revolvers for CC.

November 13, 2012, 11:32 PM
HA nice- you caught me with a 37-2 lightweight .38 with nickle starting to flake on the aluminum. I just recently picked this up as a back pocket beater for my walks and hikes. Right now it is loaded with some Winchester 158gr +P LHP.

Wait.. there is a Mosin M44 to my left and I can't remember how far to my right the revolver was... damn

November 13, 2012, 11:44 PM
