    Where is your gun in your bedroom

    If this has been discussed already, please point me to the correct thread. In any case, I would like to know where you keep your gun in your bedroom for quick nighttime access? Also any suggestions you have would be appreciated. Thanks.

    I have a bedside table where I keep my .45 next to my alarm clock. I just have to remember which "snooze" button to press when I'm interrupted at night.

    Without being too specific, I like it to have the following criteria:

    Arms reach, out of sight, Condition 1

    In the mattress rail. I can reach down with my right hand to grab it without moving off my bed.

    Welcome to the forum! I am not sure if you are simply taking a poll or looking for advise.

    It's just basic common sense, that if you have children, you must secure your weapon just as you do other dangerous items such as medications and household chemicals. They make several different types of safes with rapid entry. You can secure your weapon in there but still have access to it if needed.

    I don't have any children running around my house so I don't have the same safety concerns that others must have. So, I have a dresser that is the same height as the bed. At night, I put my carry gun, flash light, cell phone on the dresser top. I also keep my pants with belt, wallet, car keys laid on top of the same dresser.
    Don't do things you don't want to explain to the Paramedics!

    Stupidity should be painful.

    I have a 45 with trijicons and a 40 FS with attached light well within arms reach without getting out of bed. Of course all are ready to go, no kids in the house.

    In my dresser 5 ft from my bed. Early warning system sleeps on the floor right next to me (my German Shepard).
    No trees were harmed in the construction of this post. However a large number of electrons were indiscriminately aroused.

    I have kids so mine sleeps in a safe mounted in the wall nearest the bed. I have a decorative cloth hanging covering it so it's lighter/quicker to get in than a picture in a frame. Hopefully my dog will give me the lead time to get to it in the night. I'd prefer to lock it bedside but haven't figured out exactly what I would want yet.
