Discussion in 'Handguns: Autoloaders' started by Wonder9, Jan 15, 2009.
Thinking of getting one of those electronic safes that you can unlock with your four fingers on top putting in the code. I don't trust myself with the gun on top the dresser, I leave it in the drawer. I've been known to sit straight up and hold entire conversations in my sleep so I'm a little wary of what else I might do with loaded and unsecured gun right next to my head.
Extra mag next to it.
Maglight 3 D cell.
12 ga coach gun propped up between bed and night stand.
Wifes side 1911 compact condition 1 on night stand.
20 ga semi auto propped between bed and night stand.
Mosin Nagant M44 and Mossberg 500 in the corner.
Rack at foot of bed with S&W M21, S&W M22, Taurus M445, and Star Super .38 super.
All with reloads next to them.
Weapon mounted light or seperate light?
- but good for you!
5 in a side saddle (all 00), flash light and cell phone on the night stand.
BTW, no children in the house, so the gun is unsecured and ready.
-Three 15 round 10 mm Glocks with night sights
-One tactical fashlight
-One tactical knife
-One AK with tactical light and laser
I should put a sign on the door. Something like:
If you are looking for excitement, come on in. I don't know how everyone will fare but one thing is for sure, the bullets will fly and there will be blood shed. If you're just looking to steal some stuff, the next house will be easier! I'm sure of it.
We have a biometric time clock at work that clocks you in and out via fingerprint, and it never works correctly. Maybe the safes are better, but I'd be nervous that I wouldn't be able to get my gun out in time if I needed it.
under my pillow
I keep my H&K USP 40 S&W under my pillow in a "Pillow Holster". It's padded and I never feel the weapon, just know it's there. If anyone is interested use Google and search "Pillow Holster". I have had it about a month and am very satisfied, wasn't really comfortable fishing around in a nightstand drawer if the need arose.
Maybe you are a more sound sleeper than I am, but I would much rather fish around in a nightstand that does not ever move than to fish around in a pile of pillows (although your wife may not put 900 pillows on the bed like mine does ) that may shift during the night, to find my pistol. I keep a 1911 with night sights in the same drawer, oriented the same way, with a Streamlight TL2 and a reload next to it. Nothing else in the drawer. I know exactly where it is no matter how disheveled the pillows get .
If my daughter is here (shared custody) I'll either have the keys to the gun locker in the closet next to the light or the carry gun with a trigger lock in a box under the bed.
I use a 3-number combination lock that I set so I can open in the dark by just turning one dial.
Faux electrical Cabinet
... in my walk-in closet is unlocked every night, re-locked every morning, (because I have little kids). The Mossberg 590 12ga eight shot is there for me, Mossberg 500 20ga five shot for mommy, and my eldest son's favorite Marlin 336 in 35 Remington is in there, and out in a snap.
That's the plan.
