    Sometimes it is.. Sometimes it isn't. Doesn't really matter because the shotgun is just about a foot behind it and that doesn't need a holster..

    If you're WEARING the holster you let it sleep in, you're asking for rust/moisture issues. If you change it to another holster for the night, at least give it a chance to dry out and give it a wipe-down with a silicone rag.

    It's only in a holster when it's on me.
    I'll second that notion.

    Yeah, it's holstered but in a UM kydex screwed to the back of the headboard. It's close by, relatively secured and hidden.

    No. Unless I'm wearing the firearm, it is out of the holster. Leather looks nice, but leather can and will hold moisture, that is not good for the firearm. I've seen some real messes from storage in the holster.

    No. Like others have said, I give it a break from the leather.

    Never when I am sleeping. The holster stays with my pants and the gun rests beside me on the book I was reading before the sandman came. Like the posters before me, I have seen too many nice guns damaged by leaving them in the leather. I am so anal that I rotate the ammo and the mags every night in my carry piece. A BUG(M-29) stays in my dresser drawer only a foot or so from reach if I were to need it. No kids in the house, just the lady that lets me live with her and a 30lb attack cat. CC, the Rottweiller, lives outside and never misses a thing at night. Woe be the fool that makes the attempt to enter my residence uninvited.

    Out of it's holster. Always ON THE FLOOR (no place to fall to), under my sweat-shorts (don't want to embarrass the burglar) or under a magazine. I keep a Surefire light on the nightstand with a lanyard so I can easily grab for it in the dark. Moccasins ready to slip on.

    Well the pistols are holstered, the M1 carbine is not holstered

    .40 on headboard in nylon holster w/ spare mag next to a flashlight. If I need to EVAC for a fire, my .40 is with me. My 1911 is not in a holster. It's keeping warm with a double mag pouch between the matress & boxspring - easily accessible.

    Yes. I tend to have a habit of knocking stuff of the night stand when the alarm goes off. Glocks don't have a safety, so to keep my trigger protected from me knocking it off, i keep it in the holster.

    My EDC is holstered, I have anothe pistol that stays with the bed. The least handeling of a gun the least chance of a ND. I am always aware while handeling my pistols but NDs do happen so I like to error on the safe side. I have no children in the house anymore.

    I prefer to keep mine holstered to prevent an accidental trigger pull at night or while reaching for it in an emergency. My warning system (Doberman & Dalmatian)will alert me in enough time to remove the holster before anyone can get to the bedroom.
