    Fell asleep armed...

    I was watching a movie in bed the other night, and I fell asleep with my P3AT in my pocket... I've also done this with my XD in a belt holster. I was obviously comfortable enough to not notice either one... anyone else ever done this, or am I the only one?

    Yes, I've nodded off with my gun on, while watching a Zombie movie.

    I did wake up with it in my hand once .. the gun that is, off the nightstand. Can't remember what I was dreaming about. Scared the crap outta me.

    I sleep, but fear a zombie infestation...

    But I haven't fallen asleep with my CCW yet.

    Sure have. Depending on the amount of over time I work in a week I sometimes nod off a few times a week while sitting in the recliner. That chair is evil I tell you.

    Oh yeah, no comfort issue with a VM-II. I love an afternoon nap!

    Hey Dakotaranger, I hope you're kidding because everyone knows you only use "open sights" with a chainsaw! SHEESH!

    I have before, hurt like hell too bent my back all out of shape.
    Now, we must all fear evil men. But there is another kind of evil which we must fear most, and that is the indifference of good men.

    I have fallen asleep many times on the couch. I don't even feel my Keltec 38t in the uncle mikes in my front pocket.

    I fell asleep with my Glock on my hip this afternoon. Sadly, I slept for quite a while so I don't know when I'll get back to sleep.

    Someone has to much time on their hands creating a website like that (although I did give it a half a chuckle). If these people would put just as much time and effort into protecting the 2A, we wouldn't need to worry about loosing our rights!

    Oh, I have fallen asleep while armed many times, I don't worry about it. I would rather have it on my person and asleep, than asleep with it 30 feet away and need it.
