    How far are you at this moment from your HD firearm?

    Right now at this moment how far are you from your HD firearm whatever it is? On you? Arms reach? In another room?

    If you door was kicked in right now while your reading this by home invader/s could you get to your weapon before they got to you?

    Just curious and a little food for thought.

    Arms reach to my M&P and if I were to jump out of bed...arms reach to the Mossberg too. I try to keep the pistol in arms reach if it is not on my person.

    Interesting... my computer chair faces away from the front door and my guns are locked up in the bedroom on the other side of the house because we have small kids. Food for thought indeed...

    Same here, got the .45 with night sights inches away. The door is locked for the criminals protection, not mine!

    How far are you at this moment from your HD firearm?

    Sitting on my couch with my Ruger LC9 tucked into my waistband in its remora holster.

    I'd guess just over a quarter of an inch between me and 19 rounds of .45, oh yeah, and a gun too! The scenario you mention is one of the reasons I carry at home.
