    My carry piece stays holstered on the night stand next to an extra mag, bottle of water, and surefire light. When things go bump in the night, I don't typically reach for it though. I select a shotgun, or my .44mag lever gun (16" barrel)

    Our handguns are kept in "GunVault" biometric gun safes for real quick access but locked away from the little one

    i got the idea from someone here a long time ago. keep in mind i don't have any kids or other concerns to worry about. it's actually an old belt secured with fender washers and clips. nothing to extreme and body weight seals the deal. ...(i'm also left handed)

    Same here. Mine is in a drawer next to the bed, so it can't fall. The drawer is at the same level as my pillow and about a foot-and-a-half away, so is easy to reach. I leave the drawer partially open so I can just grab, or I can shut the drawer quickly/easily to secure it.
    If your paddle holster comes out with your gun in a situation, you're in a bind. If I grab my HD gun in a situation and it's holstered, same thing.
    If it's not on me (or asleep) it's in the safe. No exceptions.

    Stay safe,

    Why do I use 230 gr. for my .45acp?
    Because I can't find a source of 250 gr!

    (Not to sound smart-a$$ed): You answered yourself.
    If you're in bed, it's hard to maneouver a shotgun (unless it's a "Judge"), making a handgun your first line of defense (not the same as first choice). If you have enough warning to get up and prepare for a situation, the handgun is a great option to have - in a holster, as back-up to your shotgun, uzi, M60, or whatever WMD you can apply.
    (Okay, I guess I am a little bit smart-a$$ed, but it's only in jest!)

    I have a couch right next to the bed, Even though I do not have my gun yet, I did for a number of years play paintball and airsoft, I have a uncle mikes Clip holster that will serve duty clipped to the back side of the couch where I can get it ASAP at night.

    Mine is on a tall dresser next to the bed cocked and locked Glock.
    My fingers are laid flat on the weapon during retriveal, to avoid an AD finger never touches the trigger.

    I pull my Taurus M410 (the Judge) out of safe every night and lay it on the nightstand with my flashlight till morning.

    No. I have one of those locking pistol safes, with the foam inside, next to the bed. It's actually kept unlocked all the time unless I have company, so it's always within easy reach at night.

    No children in home. Both side drawers (wifes & mine) have weapons at the ready. 12ga with one in the pipe on safety with Tac. light in arms reach.
