    Gunner Ive seen these at past gun shows and was recently thinking of getting one for my livingroom. Do you know of a website or catalouge where I can order one?

    Hey pierced456

    Nice Avatar! I like it!

    I am not armed in the shower.
    I do keep my home perimeter alarm on.
    And....the 4 legged Canine Alarm is also always working.
    My dog is right outside the tub when I'm in the shower.
    She will not move until I exit the shower.

    Havin' a pistol handy in the shower worked well for John Wayne - it was The War Wagon, wasn't it? Wasn' the line somethin' like "No Hard Feelings"? Not too sure how hot water and black powder would get along in real life though.

    Best,
    Jon

    Around the house, my pistol is on me when I am clothed. When I am in the shower, it's resting under a folded towel to keep mist off it. The shower door is transparent---when we got it my wife wanted the transparency to avoid "The Psycho Thing".

    Plus, a BG seeing me naked and reaching for a towel might be fooled into assuming my motive was modesty.

    For those who think carrying around the house or a pistol next to the shower is going too far: I admit I feel a little silly doing it, but I would feel incredibly stupid if I got myself killed because the pistol was in the other room when needed. What's the point of having a pistol, getting training, etc., if you don't give yourself at least the opportunity to actually use it if necessary?

    Way to go!!!! Mind you if a BG made it in at all that is prob' #1 eh!

    True tho - I also do your trick - it keeps gun out of sight and certainly, grabbing a towel is a pretty inoccuous move.

    If tho it was a hitman we'd still be SOL!

    Thanks. Yes the range of possibilities between "never attacked; weapon never needed" on one end and "shot in the back by sniper from 200 meters" on the other end contains an infinite number of scenarios.

    One we have ruled out is "killed in shower because we couldn't get our hand on a pistol".

    Only a zillion others to work on.

    I've got a 12 gauge with a 18.5" barrel in the bathroom hanging on a hook. It's a cheapie I cut down from excess stock at the shop.

    It'll work admirably should anything be required and I don't think about it.

    The inside and out are coated in the CLP "Protector" stuff and I haven't had a lick of rust in the four years it's been there. I re-do the application once a year.

    The Mossberg Mariner or Remington Marine work in the bathroom as well as the boat. Taurus total titanium revolvers are pretty corrosion resistant. If you think about it, a little ambient humidity for a short period of time isn't as moisture abusive as all day IWB carry. If we stash loaded guns all over the house, and sonner or later a child enters the house, we face negligent storage issues. If we keep our primary or backup within arms reach 24/7, we should be good to go. The problem is the "splish, splash, I was taking a bath" or the swoosh noise of the shower, not to mention your Pavarotti imitation. A stealthy intruder may have a brief advantage, but there are many more probable dangers we face than the bath for which we have to prepare.

    A few years back I remember reasing an article about a little old lady who ran to the bathroom when a prouler broke into her house. when the prouler came after her in the bathroom she cleaned his clock with the 357 mag. she kept hidden with the cleaners under the sink.

    My gun is with me all the time while in the house. Paranoid perhaps but I have lived under a death threat for the past 20 years from one of my brothers, I don't relish giving him a chance if he should show up.
