Would you ever carry 4 rounds in a 6 shooter if you sleep with your revolver?

    If you are really worried about an unintended discharge from dropping it, perhaps getting someone who installs "spray in" bedliners to coat the surfaces of the room with spongy rubber. Would be easy to clean too!

    Only revolver that should be loaded with four is a Colt Cloverleaf. :)

    I keep my NAA 22mag, and my Kel-tec P-11 fully loaded on my nightstand. My Cimarron is there, but unloaded,my 995 carbine in within arms reach and loaded. My !894s is a few feet farther away and empty. It is more than capable of killing my neighbors three doors down, 210 gr bullets at 2150 fps have a tendency to go through many sheetrock walls and I live in a mobile home park.I also have two outdoor cameras which means I could if need be shoot through my wall and hit hit a bad guy who would have no idea I had the drop on him.So with 25 loaded rounds, and five loaded magazines and 2500 rds of spare ammo and five other guns, you have no idea how ridiculous worrying about carrying 4 rounds in a sixgun sounds to me.

    My cousin who was a physician passed away in 1999. He fell asleep and nevr woke up again. His son went over before the coroner and others got there and he found a S&W 29 (.44 mag) undr his pillow. He also found another .38 under the pillow next to him. Both with 6 rounds in them.

    He was kind of paranoid after a traffic incident several years prior to his death. He as driving and got cut off at which time he offered the one finger salute the the person who cut him off. They ended up making him pull over and prcedeeded to beat the hell out of him, After that, he never went anywhere without a gun.

    He slept with that .44 for years right under his pillow and he never had a problem. I think if you have a decent quality gin, the odds of it going off accidently are almost non exisitent. The heart attack killed him in his sleep, not the gun under his pillow.

    I would never 'sleep' with my firearm. Not under my pillow and not on my bed or sleeping bag because I toss and turn TOO much.

    I have my firearm next to me by my eyeglasses on a table, on other areas NEXT to me whether I am @ home, in a hotel, camping, etc. I can REACH it. I would need my eyeglasses on anyway so that is how I work my self defense 'situation'.

    Six shooters = 6 cartridges = D/A Revolver unless it is an old fashioned single action revolver with NO transfer bar. Even then... some load it the old way with new model Rugers. Mine are new model single action revolvers in Ruger. My D/A revolvers are in Smith and Wesson.
