    It opens with the push of buttons to open the lock.

    One in the downstairs closet, central to the house, and the other in a bedroom closet. I don't keep them closer to the bed because I want to be fully awake before I get them in my hands. Both are SXSs with ammo in a carrier on the butt. this is the same place they have been for the last 30 years. I also keep a rifle down stairs but its mostly for animal threats. It has mostly been a marlin carbine in 45 colt. but its been lately being replaced with a 17HMR. The HMR does a nice job on skunks, Racoons, Coyotes, etc.... there are also rifles in the garage and barns. DR

    Wife and I each use a small dresser as a night stand, the Rem 1100 with pistol grip, slug barrel, tube extension and side saddle sits between the bed and dresser, I go in and out through the garage right past the Liberty Gun Safe where it sits while I'm gone. The wife use to keep "her" M-1 carbine on her side but now we live in a "safe" neighborhood and doesn't feel the need. She does keep her carry S&W 642 with Crimson Trace grips on the top of her dresser at night.

    I have hooks on the backside of my headboard. Easy to access and hopefully a place a burglars wouldn't look.

    I have to figure out something for the 870. I recently decided to use that as one of the main defensive guns and I am leaning to the Shotlock. I'd love to go V-line but the price is a bit high right now. A spare box of 12ga shells sits in the closet.

    The XD9 sits on the nightstand with a reload nearby and a TLR-1 attached.

    Only one pistol out of the safe at a time during night time. It's close by on the dresser.
    The police are not there to protect you from crime, they are there to arrest the guy after the crime has been committed, assuming they find him. It is your responsibility to protect yourself and your family.

    Ruger SP101 357 on the bottom of my night stand 12ga loaded under the bed. Only time I unload the shotgun is when my granddaughter comes over, the SP 101 is on my hip during the day.

    This thread reminds me that I need a very small sticker on my front door (not something to read from the yard or street) that says "Armed and Alarmed".

    I keep mine in a locked steel box cabled to a shelf in my closet, about ten feet from the bed. I have kids so it is locked at all times and the keys are always with me. I am new to guns so I am not yet totally comfortable leaving it out at any time.

    I have a question for those of you who keep your long gun or shottie near your bed side: is it a concern that somebody could come in to your room, see the rifle, and get the jump on you? The reason I ask is this is why I won't keep a gun in the open while I sleep as I don't want to give up any ground.

    Now I know a lot of us have dogs, alarms, etc., but still; it just makes me nervous.....

    Thoughts?
