Hi there, I have run across some mention of sleeping with your gun in a number of different threads, and went looking for a thread specifically about this topic and did not find it. If I am repeating or misplacing this thread, apologies!
I'm new to guns and therefore wet behind the ears as they relate to just about any scenario. My vision for this thread is to collect practical thoughts about sleeping with your gun into one place. I am hoping it will not become a place for people to argue against or for the practice but that it will become a good place to train oneself in good procedure if you do. Or, a place to learn the practical considerations for why you may choose not to.
I am particularly interested in soliciting the feedback and recommendations of folks who actually do sleep with their guns on the thought processes (practical, not specific threat related) that led them to this decision. I'm also interested in hearing a practical discussion of what to do/what not to do if you are seriously thinking about sleeping with a gun.
Having a gun in a safe next to you does not meet this definition, however if you began with it out of a safe and in your hand/under your pillow/somewhere "on you" and ended up with it "in a safe next to you" that discussion and process does fit in with this request for information.
Thank you in advance for your thoughts and advice!
