Bought a locking police rack off of ebay and installed it in my closet for the 1300 Winchester shotgun. Figure if I need to get to my shotgun, my handguns should provide enough cover.
ISHTF are you ready?
Kimber cocked/locked and holstered on me when awake, in the nightstand at night. Remington 870 with 00 buck loaded, but not one in chamber, under the side of the bed. No kids at home any longer, so I don't have to worry about little ones.

If one of my four-legged alarms go off and become my first line of defense, then they'll give me plenty of time to dial 911 and grab something to fend off any intruders, till the LEO show up.

I have no children, and none come into my home (if I can help it)
I hae an alarm system
They'd have to get through a door or window, and that won't happen quietly
they'd have to get into my room without me waking, and I am a light sleeper
I am not the only person in my house who sleeps armed, and they'd have to simultaneously eliminate 3 of us, at opposite corners of the house to succeed.
I'm not worried about soemone reaching my gun before I do. It's literally at arm's reach, as is my handgun, with the bedside holsters.
Don't have a shotgun, yet, but when I go to bed I put one of my handguns on a nightstand shelf behind a bag I keep all my medicine in, within easy reach. My instructor said don't leave it laying out in the open because the BG might get to it before you can. I don't have any dogs to alert me, but do have some simple alarms on the windows.
Austin, I know this is an old thread, but im interested in a good safe for the HD shotgun. Do you remember where you found your V Line safe?
