    I answered the poll "holstered" but this is the holster....




    I keep the Glock 10mm in the holster; the mag pouch on the top of the holster is where the Surefire stays. I position the rig so it is where my hand falls on it when I lay on my back and don't have to move or bring my hand out from under the covers. I'm a former Jarhead, I became accustomed to being wide awake then the PA system came on, even before the first note of revile during boot camp and have been a light sleeper ever since, and am still wide awake instantly at the slightest noise.

    I use a bedside holster made by RM Holster Works and is similar to the previous post. Mine is for a 38 snubby with a Crimson Trace laser. It works extremely well. It is at my finger tips, I need no illumination to find it. I can grab it as I get up or grab it while on my side or my back. I paid $49.00. Here is the link.

    My Glock stays in a holster at night (stowed in one of several quick,easy to reach spots). If I have to wake up and engage a BG I will do so quickly, but only after I unholster and ID my target. I've practiced this and have done so once......turned out to be REALLY fat coon swinging on my dogwood and ticking my german shepard off.

    Agreed, the only reason I keep my 1911 next to the bed (holstered most of the time) is in case someone gets between me and the closet where the shotgun is.

    It sounds like some of us view our handgun as our primary home defense weapons. If you find yourself in that crowd you may want to reconsider your shotgun. Don't get me wrong, I don't want to be on the receiving end of any gun including a pistol but the shotgun's ballistics are hard to argue. From a defensive position in close quarters I really can't see an argument for the pistol that would prevail over the shotgun.

    The question was about the handgun being in a holster or not...I for one didn't say it was the only thing available for home defense. The handgun is there in case someone gets into the bedroom without waking me; it is a large house with walk out basement; I can draw the handgun without any movement being seen. I keep a shortie AR with tritium sights and jungle clipped 30 round mags between the bed and night stand, the wife has an M-1 carbine with 30 round mag on her side. We live in the country with the closest neighbor 100 yards away through woods so I am not concerned about penetrating exterior walls.

    PM Sent. Sorry for any confusion. I cleared my first post up a bit, I think?

    one of the 1911s, whichever one I carried that day is on the nightstand holstered. The nightstand gun is my Warrior with a TRL1 mounted on the rails

    Both of them are backup the the Remington 870 AOW that sleeps next to the bed.

    No.
    It needs to be acessable with one hand. A holster on the nightstand takes two hands to clear.
    Possibly under a t-shirt, but never in a holster

    I have mine unholstered while sleeping next to my bed on the night stand enough out of reach not to have issues.

    I set mine unholstered on the night stand, my youngest child is 18, so no worries there.
