    In front of my computer reading this thread on one monitor, watching Haven on DirecTV2PC on my other monitor and my M&P Shield 9mm is on my hip.

    Locked in my closet, if someone breaks in my apartment I have strategically placed knives all over the house. I'd rather get up close and personal, and not hit neighbors.

    Me I'm on my computer at my breakfast bar with my gun right next to the wrong hand. ( just noticed that ). And my family is up stairs.

    It's 0120 hours, and I'm ten feet from my gun, which is tucked away in bed for the night, along with a folding knife, two spare mags, a 600 lumen tac light with strobe, a 21" ASP baton, and an Ek Commando SF/4 dagger/knife. I can reach any of them within a second or two from my bed at night. I love these bedside hoslters.



    I'm actually waiting on a new version of that Saf-Sleeper holster to arrive that allows the gun to be sheathed while the rail-mounted tac light (200 lumen) and green laser are mounted to it. Then I'll probably leave the 32 round mag in it as well.

    Sounds like most respondees are at home, armed and are safe and sound. What about those who are presently on the road? En route or at work? We're probably the most vulnerable, as most work-sites are "no carry" sites. Thoughts?

    GlassWolf: nice set-up. What do you do with this, though, when you are not home and/or the house is empty? Do you lock this stuff up daily? Just curious, as I'm thinking of doing something similar to your set up.

    If I leave home, I'm carrying. How and what depends on season, destination, etc. If I have to go into a place that's a no-carry zone, like a Federal building, I stow the gun in a safe in the car until I return. I prefer to be unarmed as infrequently, and for as short a time as possible when out and about. I won't get into the specifics of where I don't carry, as I don't want to turn this into a discussion of legal or not, and what is or isn't OK, and all of that can of worms.

    Thank you :) "Nighthawk Protects" makes the bed holsters, and they are very reasonably price, and I like them quite a bit. As for the mags, they stay put usually. Can't do much with them alone. The baton stays or tags along with me depending on where I'm going and the level or protection I feel the need to have with me at the time. The gun is my EDC, but the laser and rail mount tac light I mentioned are QD models, so I just pop those off and leave them at home when I carry it. That PPQ is very easy to carry, surprisingly, for it's size. If I'm going to carry something smaller instead, I'll toss the PPQ in the safe. I don't leave firearms unsecured, even with a home alarm system, when I go out and the house will be left empty. If you have long guns and pistols like I do, a big safe is great. If you only have a few handguns or less, you can buy a smaller safe that's very easy you bolt down, hide, and use to secure the gun(s) when you're not present. You can even do both and have guns available to you in various rooms or ends of the house yfor quick access.

    Well, currently I work on a military installation so no conceal carry for me to and fro work. It really bothers me I can't carry or keep in my vehicle, but I'm not risking getting random searched on base and them finding a weapon. As soon as I get home I'm changing and getting my holster on my hip. My wife is a stay at home mom and she keeps the pistol at arms reach through out the day. I've trained her well . At night, holster comes off and get put on my nightstand along with the flashlight and extra mags. Shotguns hiding in the kitchen if the wifes in there and she forgets the pistol and we keep one behind out bedroom door she grabs if I go out searching the house for a BG. We use the standard friendly call when entering the bedroom after clearing the house.

    Why, because I can! We have an almost 'must carry' policy at my abode. Everyone knows the rules. And I live in one of the better hoods = this is where they think the good loot is.

    Here are a few more pics of the Ek, and mag holder. I'll post pics of the new bed holster when it arrives.
