    How do you sleep??

    If this thread is on here, I could not find it. I mean no offense or anything erotic or pornographic by this question. It is a serious thought that I had.

    I have heard of keeping a pair of boots, or shoes by your bed at night for the bumps in the night. I have also heard of keeping a pair of pants in the room close by.(nam vets have turned me onto the idea) And I have heard of some people even keeping a modified gear belt with a holster, flashlight, and ammo at the ready.

    So here is my question. What do you wear while sleeping. I know there is the possibility of the pants to throw on but there may not be time. If you gotta get up in the middle of the night and engage what is the proper attire? Its no secret that some people sleep in the buff or just shorts or just a shirt.

    What is your theory on this? Male and female please chime in. Keep it clean.Thanks.

    I used to sleep in my B-Day's best, but I've grown up a with a kid in the house, now, I sleep in shorts, or PJ pants, no shirt tho... but the lockbox is literally 3 feet from my hand and I live in Florida, so, going outside barefoot and barechested is not really much of a concern 11 months out of the year.

    Your thread reminds me of a video I saw that addresses this topic. I thought it was pretty hilarious (although it is intended to convey some practical info at the same time) Funny part starts around 1:20 One part of his home defense is the "devastating psychological effect of a 400 pound naked man with a gun" YouTube - Re: Home Defense 101 Series: "Basic Tactics" by GorillaTactical

    I live alone but even if my daughter lived with me I would still sleep nude. If something happens in the middle of the night I could care less if I'm naked. I will confront you nude and I do not have problem doing so.

    I really don't care how I am dressed or not if something happens.
    The Glock is on the night stand, the Mossy 500 under the bed on a shelf, my wife has her .357 under her pillow, we each have 2 flashlights.
    I refuse to lose a few seconds and some concentration so that the BG doesn't see me naked; it might be his last image !!!
    A noise outside, I am not going right away to investigate.
    I am going to play with the lights (all lights in the house can be remote controlled from my night stand - X10 system); that is going to worry the intruder, wondering how many people are living here and how are they moving so fast.
    Still a threat ? 911 and we have the time to get dressed while they arrive.

    Really, for us it is a non-issue.

    One time, mid-morning, I heard noise in the patio, which has total privacy and came out dressed only with my UZI; it was jehova's witnesses !!! I gave them a lecture on trespassing (my property is posted) told them I could call the cops, and let them go.
    For some reason they never came back.

    I sleep wearing the same thing I was born in. I'm not worried about offending the bad guy with my nudity. In fact his rotfl could be a tactical advantage to me, and I'll take any advantage I can get!

    I bounce back and forth between boxers and bday suit. My wife sleeps in shirt and panties. We also share a house with my parents and our daughter. I think if I am investigating I will throw on some kind of pant. Usually my pants from that day have my knives and ID in them. The LEO id may come in handy if I happen upon some kind of police investigation or something going on. Not that I live in a bad area.

    Pair of boxers usually. When I was with my wife or before that a GF who lived with me either boxers or nothing. My EDC is well within arms reach, pair of pants and boots on the floor next to the bed. To be honest, if I dont have time to throw pants on, oh well. I really do not have a problem engaging a BG in my home while nude.

    I sleep in the buff, and in all reality if I feel there is a threat, time is precious and I don't have time to throw the shorts on.

    Yes, I have heard a loud thud in the middle of the night and cleared the entire house, naked....


    I felt a little silly once I felt secure.

    How do you sleep??

    Shorts, gun nearby and loaded with more than one flashlight to lite things up. That is just after my Video Cameras Beep me to motion in their view so I can figure what exit I want to go out of.
