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

    Mine is holstered. We've got a two year old that wanders in at night, and I just prefer it holstered around him.

    I have a XD, I do not keep it holstered when I sleep. (I have no Kids)
    If I had kids I would use a holster, or i would have it in a drawer.
    I believe in gun control...... Thats why I use TWO hands.

    Mine are in a handgun safe under the bed. It takes me about 5 seconds to reach, open and grab. Plus a flashlight, a spare magazine each. No children in the house.

    1911, cocked & locked, unholstered. I have a fobus holster, and I can't get it out with only one hand...

    I keep my Bersa next to the bed ready for Bang Bang. My wife has her 357 Revolver on the head board and just needs to squeeze the trigger! There are no little kids at the house!

    Keep my Glock holstered next to the Bed. I have no kids, I just prefer the rig to stay together in case I need the whole setup.

    Hmmm, I'm late in this thread. I keep one of my pistols unholstered in a quick access safe bolted inside the drawer of my nightstand.

    I used to keep my Baby Eagle in a finger controlled two gun safe in the bed room. Since the problems with the son-in-law I decided to switch to my Sig next to my bed with the Streamlight M-6 flashlight/laser on it. It's also got night sights on it and it's in a partially opened drawer within my reach from the bed. My 6 year old is now gun savvy and since the Sig is my carry gun it's only there while I'm sleeping. I put the M-6 on it at the point I take the gun off for the night. I still have extra handguns in the two gun safe but I feel better with the Sig in arms reach. The nights sight is also handy on skunks and feral dogs too.

    AMEN!! I read somewhere that the 45/9mm debate will go on forever...the 30.06/308. debate will go on forever...but nobody ever bad mouths a 12 gauge. Still, I unleash the bulldog at night and lay it in the top, open drawer of the nightstand. There's nothing else in there so I put it there to pass to the wife as I'm grabbing the super nova tactical.

    For some guns, this may not be as big an issue, like a 1911 or a Sig as they have an external safety/decocker. But for a Glock or XD, it is more of an issue. Especially if a child can come in.
    My weapon remains holstered and hidden in a clothing drawer not more than three feet from my bed.
    One more step and it's on!

    Yes right beside the clock and the flashlight on the nightstand.

    At home I carry an XD45 in a Blackhawk Askins except when showering or sleeping. In those two situations the XD is unholstered and an arm's length from my grasp. I'm not paranoid...just prepared in case of a break-in or home invasion.
