    In my hand, lol.

    Seriously - since I have a 13 year old grandson living with me I keep it pretty well hidden in a dresser drawer next to the bed. Where my grandson is very responsible & knows handgun safety it's his friends that I worry about more than anything. They're never allowed in our bedroom. My grandson goes to his room before I go to bed & gets up in the morning after I do I don't think he knows it's there. I don't think my wife knows it's there. I'm typically the last to bed & the first to get up. I take it off while undressing for bed & put it, holstered, in the drawer & in the morning it goes back on me when I get dressed for the day.

    V-Line Top Draw, there's no way in the world you could get me to use a Gunvault for ANYTHING that my life may depend on.

    I like gadgets too, but not on my handgun safe. Condsider the ones that use a mechanical push-button lock. This is mine.



    Fort Knox, V-Line and a couple others use this type of lock too.

    Resides in a STICKY HOLSTER when next to my bed (and under a cloth cover so nobody can notice it before I am awake). Resides in the same Sticky Holster when IWB.

    Yup. I don't worry about my kid, but I do about his idiot friends that he has over.

    This is in my night stand:

    I keep my Glock 30 in a Blackhawk CQC paddle holster that fits over the frame on the side of my bed. (BLACKHAWK! SERPA CQC w/Matte Finish - BLACKHAWK!)

    Currently keeping mine in the night stand between the wall and my bed. Thinking about finding a way to attatch a holster to the underside of the bed so I can just reach under and grab it real quickly without it being on the floor.

    V-Lines here too, I’ve got 3 of them all set to the same combination:

    Nightstand Top Drawer:



    Under bed, Long Gun:



    And a “Hide-Away” for my CCW:



    V-Line Industries Security Cases and Cabinets

    No batteries, simplex lock, easy to change combinations. I’ve had my first for a little over 10 years. Not worried about having them stolen, worried about coming home and facing one of my own guns!

    I have kids so I use the above. My CCW instructor made the point that biometric safes can be used against you - BG clocks you and then drags you over to your safe and swipes with your hand.

    The safe above is easy enough to open with a code I set and the key is accessible but tucked away a few feet from the unit.

    I too have Kid to contend with, I have something like this on but has a handprint formed into so you dont have to guess where the buttons are in the dark.

    Kids are grown and gone, the puppy can't reach it so I lay it on a mouse pad to keep any chance of oil off the night stand. Out in the open, not "in" anything.

    Nothing & I have kids but I'll explain because it's not as irresponsible as it sounds. Currently our mattress & box springs sits on the floor & a loaded magazine is under the boxsprings between slats on the side that I sleep on. The pistol sits on the floor in between the bed & wall (about 4 inches of space) with no magazine in it & the safety engaged. Every morning when I get up for work (5:15 a.m.), I take the pistol & engage the taurus security system which locks the slide assembly, & put it in my blackhawk cqc level 2 retention holster. Only myself & my wife have a key to the TSS (Taurus Security System) & we keep them with us all the time during the day. At night I repeat the process. All ammo is put out of reach & the children do not know where the pistol is at night. During the day I could care less if they know where it is because a.) they have been warned that if I ever see them touching it they won't sit down for a week, b.) they have shown absolutely no interest in it, c.) they couldn't do anything with it anyway without the TSS key, d.) they don't know about the TSS & thus would have no clue how to disengage it, & e.) They have had some training in firearms safety & undertand it pretty good.

    I realize there is still a possibility that something could happen but I believe it is negligble at best knowing my kids & the safeties I take.

    I keep my shotgun and handgun in my safe. I take my shotgun and put it next the nightstand. I take my pistol and use the Blackhawk bed holster for it. I do use my EDC gun but not all the time.
