    When back in the states if I am awake it's on me, if sleeping it's on the night stand next to me. Deployed I always have one on my hip and another in arms reach.

    My shotgun is down the hall in the bedroom loaded and ready to go. I have a Glock 19 and two spare magazines on my hip to help me reach the shotgun.

    I was wondering what others did while showering. Living alone, I typically leave my EDC on the back of the toilet while showering. There have been times where I would be half asleep while showering and thought I heard someone come into the house. Nothing like a little adrenaline in the morning to wake you up, LOL. If you really think about it, being in the shower with water blasting in your face and around your ears leaves one pretty vulnerable IMO.

    Mine is right here. My perimeter alarm is on. My home dates to 1910 & it is built like a stone fort.
    My outside door is 2" of solid oak and no BGs are kicking that door in or the door frame.
    But, if they did somehow manage to get through that door - they then end up in my vestibule and get to meet my second oak entry way door which is also locked.
    Meanwhile...at that time my alarm is going off and for them that is the sound of the Gates Of Hell swinging wide open to welcome them.

    It's right here, with me. No distance at all.

    But then, I don't live in a stone fort with double layers of 2"+ oaken entry doors like QK.

    Well, no one is just kicking in my doors. Solid oak front door hanging on steel reinforced door jambs, with reinforced hinges and security dead bolts. The other exterior doors on my home are steel doors on the same steel reinforced steel door jambs and hinges.

    Right now I have a Ruger LCP in my pocket because it's always in my pocket. An AR-15 is propped up against a shelf of DVD's at the end of the sofa about 24 inches away from where I'm sitting.

    About twenty feet. I'm halfway between my front door and my gun. Guess the crooks and I would have even odds :/
