    My EDC is in an under-the-desk holster mounted underneath my nightstand. Less obvious than leaving it sitting on top of the nightstand, and almost as easily accessible. Since there are no kids in the house, I don't feel compelled to lock it in the safe overnight. FWIW, my EDC is not my preferred HD gun.

    It's by my bed so I can grab it if I need it! You don't have time fooling with a lock box if someone has broken into your house.

    What do you do with your carry at night?

    Carry gun goes in the night stand. It's replaced by my 1911 in the mattress for the night.

    Must be some sort of conspiracy, as my dog rules as well. I think it was Will Rogers who said, " I don't know if dogs go to heaven, but when I die, I want to go where they go.

    I livew alone no kids, so the gun sleeps on the beds headboard shelf.

    In a safe under the bed which I can consistently open in 3 seconds. I keep a flashlight on the nightstand next to my cell phone too.

    My carry piece, holster and speed loaders, go back into the top drawer night stand. My 'bump in the night' revolver, S&W Model 28, is stoked with .38 special +P, 'FBI Load'. If the intruders are rudely persistent and inconsiderate, I'll reach for the 12 gauge shotgun, 00 buckshot ... after that; well ...

    What do you do with your carry at night?

    Mine goes into a Gunvault safe on the night stand. We have 2 small children. I can get into my safe within 3 seconds. My next purchase is going to be a 12 gauge shotgun for HD!

    I always like to keep it within hands reach, but its covered with something like a shirt, jeans ect.. in a In waist holster. I like to have it hidden in the event that Im sound asleep that if someone did come in they couldnt just open my drawer and use it on me. Sort of have it appear to be in a sloppy mess of laundry but its in arms reach

    Mine stays where I normally carry it and I transition to the night stand gun. If I have to get up for a thump in the night I will have both.

    CC goes in vault. I have a weapon next to the bed secured . The Dogs generally will take care of things till I get get there.
    I have Grandchildren that are here often so Weapons do need to be secured .

    I switch out my belt clip for an underwear clip.


    JK... I leave it on the night stand.

    I don't use my PCW as my PHDW. Mine and my wife's PCWs come off and stay in the bathroom where we get dressed in the morning. I keep a handgun & 12ga Benelli next to my bed for HD.
