    No problem...that's understandable.

    Ok, you've found what works for you, but please don't think that you have the only answer, or that people who do things differently are wrong. I keep a shotgun beside the bed, and a pistol on my nightstand. I have guns through out the house, for easy access in an emergency. I do not have children, and no children visit, so I'm not worried about a child getting a hold of a gun. Now, I don't keep guns in view, or even in a drawer (other than the nightstand). I have cutout concealment books, in a variety of uninteresting titles, I have a clock that opens to allow access to a gun. This works for me, and I consider it safe. If a burglar comes in, he is unlikely to get a gun, as they are concealed (the nightstand gun is my primary carry piece, so it isn't in the drawer). As far as carrying when I'm home, I don't so it for a very simple reason- it's uncomfortable. When I'm home, I'm wearing a t shirt, and scrub pants. Carrying a gun would be difficult. No belt, so there goes my IWB and OWB holsters. I've tried pocket carry, but it's just too heavy for the scrubs. This works for me. Do what makes you happy, but please do not try to tell me that I'm wrong.

    Lightbulb A Sad Story - But No Tragedy I Am Aware About

    Several years ago I special ordered a Kel-Tec P32 with blue body and chromed barrel. Loved that pistol just for the way it looked!

    A couple of years later I started keeping it in my gf's nightstand.

    After that I watched a puff piece on local TV where they showed a convicted burglar who agreed to appear and show on video how he could clean out a house of most valuable stuff in less than 5 minutes.

    First thing he went for was the nightstand looking for weapons.

    I thought to myself I should relocate my P32 to the nearby doorless closet in a coat jacket but I never did

    About a year later, while we were out in the middle of the day, the house was broken into and my pistol was gone and has never been recovered.

    I do not keep a pistol in the nightstand any more.
    Glock 33 .357 SIG plus .40 S&W barrel for most of practice. Keep loaded with .357 SIG hollow point for home protection.

    RugerLCP .380 equipped with Crimson Trace for everyday carry.

    My EDC stays in it's MTAC between the mat & the box at night. Trigger is covered & one in the pipe with no problems, works for me.

    My new CZ Sp01 with spare 19 round mag sits in my nightstand in a gunvault. I would have to wake up a bit to get the safe open, which is good and bad.

    I sometimes worry about this.
    Mark Twain:
    The government is merely a servant -- merely a temporary servant; it cannot be its prerogative to determine what is right and what is wrong, and decide who is a
    patriot and who isn't. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them.

    I used to slide my weapon after CC between the boxspring and the matress the grip exposed, but now I just lay it next to the bed on my nightstand. Other then that all my weapons are in the gunsafe.

    I keep the gun attatched to my body unless I'm sleeping, or in the shower.

    When I shower I take the Glock out of the safe, as it has the best finish for dealing with the bathroom environment. When I'm sleeping I place the gun, in it's holster, between the box spring and the mattress. This forces me to wake up in order to retreive the gun, thus getting rid of the chance of an "accident".

    All the other guns are in the safe, no exceptions.

    My carry gun of the day [unless it's the P3AT] goes on the night stand, with a spare mag and a flashlight next to it. A BG would have to get by the yapping dog and bitching wife before he gets to my gun.
