    My mattress is recessed into my frame about 3 inches. I simply stick my gun in a remora holster between the mattress and frame. If I am laying in the bed I on my back, I can reach over the side and the gun is right there in a perfect location to draw. The remora stays put between the frame and bed when I draw. No kids to worry about either.

    I keep mine on the night stand less than 12" from me, with another one under the bed. It's just the wife and I, so the kids our not an issue. The one under the bed would be for my wife, as she knows to stay in the bedroom and wait for me to call out to her. She also has strict orders to have said gun pointed at doorway. If she doesn't hear my voice and somebody tries to come through the door, she knows she is to empty a mag into the door.

    My HD pistol is just in nightstand drawer. My shotgun is on a rack that slips between my mattress and bed frame for easy access.

    My wife and I both keep our guns in Blackhawk bedside holsters. It slides between the mattress and box spring and hangs the gun grip up for easy access. Also got an extra large blanket that hangs low enough to completely cover them while we are asleep. That way if someone does make it that far, they don't see it coming with me if they force me out of bed. Also have the 12GA within arms reach between bed and nightstand.

    I have a holster screwed to my headboard just below mattress level. You would never see it and it's inches from my hand. No kids BTW.

    I take my IWB Crossbreed-style holster off my belt and place it on a small table right next to my bed. The gun stays in the holster ready to mount up the next day or take care of a BG if needed at night. My tactical flashlight is right next to it as well.

    Notice how almost everybody keeps the gun in a holster. This is a fantastic idea, as the potential to have a ND can be pretty high when you grope for a gun after being woken from a dead sleep. Even an uncle mikes will do.

    Yep get a bedside holster a lot of company's make them cheep and they just tuck in between the frame or something like this Quick Draw Gun Magnet - 465891, Tools & Accessories at Sportsman's Guide.

    Also just sticking it in a nightstand is great maybe in a holster so you are awake and ready to go when you pull it out . Don't forget the spare mag and flashlight .

    Your's or your spouse's, which handgun(s) or shotgun(s) are you asking about? Do not bring a lighweight attitude to an all out defensive response.........

    I use a BlackHawk CQC SERPA paddle holster and it fits over the wood bed frame on the side of the bed. My EDC is a Glock 30 and the holster keeps it secure and readily accessible. I just saw this and it looks like it would work - BLACKHAWK Bedside Holster - Walmart.com. And here's another similar idea: Bed Side Holster
