    I' have mine on the night stand with a spare mag, tactical flashlight and cell phone near by. I' ain't taking any chances since the last time (couple of months ago) some body tried to brake in. Thank god for good dogs, and god bless john Mosses Browning :) !

    I keep mine in a nylon Uncle Mike's holster that is clipped to my bed frame between the bed and the nightstand. The dust ruffle/bed skirt hangs over the whole unit, nicely obscuring it from view. The holster has a retention snap on it, but I leave it unsnapped. The weapon is a SigPro 2340 - I keep one in the tube and decocked.

    I bought a tool bag at Lowe's that I use as a range bag. It looks good without advertising that there's a gun inside. The gun, holster, extra magazines, knives, flashlight, and ammo are all in the bag along with some emergency money. It sits open by the bed. (no kids in the house)

    I can grab the whole bag by the shoulder strap without spilling the contents if I have to get out off the house in a hurry.

    I keep my sa xd40 sc in a safe mounted to the underside of my bed, works well and no one is the wiser. I do leave the light and laser on it just in case.

    I just recently started using one of these charging stations. Phone in left slot, LED flashlight in middle slot, XD40sc in right slot.. Extra mag and wallet up top.. Works great.. Scatter gun w/ 7 00buck is 2 steps away from the bed.

    Mine is a 3 slot, not 4.. You get the idea

    there is always a gun in the drawer of the nightstand. Often, though, I will sleep with a gun strapped into my ankle holster with thumb snap. My problem would be that I could stealthily get my gun in my hand much easier than I could get my glasses on to see my target!

    In a holster affixed to the side of the nightstand, within easy reach.

    At one time, I just laid it on the night stand, but I realized my proclivity to fumbling for the alarm clock or water glass and realized that near these items is not a good place for a loaded firearm, especially while groggy/half-asleep.

    SAMI, that thing looks awesome. I want one!
    Where did you get yours? What did the packaging call it?

    Thx! Michele

    I've to admit that I used to smile while reading people's tactical firearm plans - they were creative, asinine and downright funny - if not in essence paranoid.

    Not anymore. The reality finally hit home.

    I've got my 870 and Benelli M4 within reach. My Beretta 92 is holstered on the nightstand next to my AK47 and bug-out bag. My wife' side resembles mine.

    There are firearms around the house, placed after thorough thought and guarded by our German Shepherds.

    The under-the-pillow-guys are still mystery to me.

    But smile I do not anymore.

    I don't know about you, but I sleep with my wife.

    I don't keep my firearm within reach due to my very active and combative dreams, but I certainly won't say where on the internet.

    Im a heavy sleeper but Im tuned to certain sounds, basically anything that should NOT be there. Dogs barking/growling, door knob clicking etc. If Im in bed its less than a arms reach away, If I nap in my recliner its on the table next to me less than arms reach. As for anywhere else, I wont post locations, lets just say that 9 times out of 10 Im within 3 or so feet of a shotgun/rifle/handgun. But for me, If the dogs dont make a midnight snack out of the BGs I might have a small situation on my hands.
