    On my side of bed is 9mm in headboard, Wife has 357 on her side and my 500 Mossy leaned on wall within reach. Kids are grown but even when they were young we raised them to be aware of whats real weapons were and never had a issue. Why secure it if you need it in a hurry and you cant get to it. JMO

    Hello friends and neighbors// My bed is one with book shelves at head board.

    In one partition I have tray with my daily carry items. Necessary Tools.jpg ( minus revolver ) ////

    Next partition holds leather and canvas belt with S&W model 586 ,, 357/38 6 shot; Buckmaster Lite model 185 fixed blade.

    Next to bed is Remington 870 12ga. with tube extension allowing 7 +1 rounds of 00 and #4 buckshot. I do keep one in tube and I keep safety on until needed.

    I should point out I am single and normally alone here.

    Snoring beagle, LED 120 lumens flashlight, concealed 357 revolver stoked with 125gr jsp's. No burgler alarm is like the bay of a startled beagle.

    I won't be specific but I keep my Colt Magnum Carry in a 'discreet' package with 2 reloads that can be easily put into the safe when I leave or have company (like my brother's kids) coming over.

    Glock 17 w/nightsights in a FAS1 handgun box.

    Drill a couple holes and mount to your bedframe. When you make your bed it is covered and secure. You can even leave the door open at night and your gun is right there next to you. When you close the lid in the morning it locks automatically since it uses a spring latch option on the lock.

    Sig 229 elite stainless in .40 with 155 gold dot sitting on the nightstand chambered, decocked, amounting to 14+1, with an extra mag sitting next to it. The weapon sits under a magazine so it can be reached from the side, but not seen from a standing position.

    Next to that is a fenix LD10, a watch that glows well, a waterbottle, and keys. Cell phone is charging on the floor next to the bed.

    On wife's side, she keeps a Sig 228 in her nightstand with a 15-round mag loaded with 124 +p gold dot, not chambered. She likes to be able to rack the slide, which she can do quickly and effectively (we've practiced with snap caps, lying down, hunkered down by bed, etc...) and have the weapon already be in SA mode.

    When we feel the need, out of the safe we draw the long guns. A Remington 870 with an 18" barrel and a 6 round mag capacity sits between my wife's nightstand and the bed with four rounds of #1 buck and 2 slugs, nothing in chamber, safety off; and on my side rests an ar10 carbine with a red dot and a 20 round mag loaded with 110 grain TAP and 125 grain nostler b-tip, with a few mags on standby with 150 grain bonded, 130 grain barnes tipped x, and 180 gran MRX, chambered and with safety on.

    I also believe it doesn't matter where you live, inasmuch as it doesn't protect you entirely, though some places may increase your chances.

    I have a black lab that will lick anybody to death that wanders around the house at night. If that's not scary enough I also have two fat cats that will meow at anybody they see since this might irritate the person into feeding them. I've also got a skinny chihuahua under the sheets with me and the wife. My wife will probably be the most scary since she will be pissed over some jerk coming and disturbing her sleep.:cuss: If none of that is enough to stop a BG, I got a Springfield Government 1911 with Truglo TFO's as well as a Lasermax Guide Rod, loaded with 8 rounds of Winchester Ranger T's secured by my bed holster made by Ray's Holsters. My wife has a Kimber Eclipse Ultra II on her nightstand with Truglo TFO's and Crimson Trace lasergrips, loaded with Federal HST's. The Springfield mounts in between the mattress and box spring and is a really nice nighttime holster. My hand can literally just drop down and pull out my gun in under a second. I have regular cordless phone next to my bed but I will be getting one of those cell phones as well for 911. (thanks for the idea guys)

    I have a killer english bulldog that snores so loud I wouldnt be able to hear if someone came in uninvited. If I do happen to hear them I have a g20sf with some hot 10mike mike with a plus two extention and a tactical light on the rail. 17 rounds more powerful then a 357 mag. My gf has a Springfield xd-9 with a mecgar 18rounder with low recoil hydra shocks and night sights on that gun. We have the mossberg 500 with buck shot in it and my m4 with hp's if it gets that bad. I have had good luck with the 500s in the mil. Wish I could say the same for the m9
