    Don’t have any kids either just convenient to keep it in the nightstand.

    There is a 3in space between my bed and the wall. That's where I keep my Springfield. It's just in that space leaning against the wall slightly. It's not in anything.

    I use a portable GunVault with a combination lock. Can't say I trust digital biometric safes to work every time. Electronics get too glitchy.

    I was looking into those the other day. Have you tried retrieving quickly in the dark? Can you even see dial? How do you have it oriented relative to your bed?

    I have a 40 Beretta model 96 with night sights and crimson trace in a small vault. Surefire flash light next to it. In the night stand. Since I am on the second floor and have a large watch dog. I should have the time needed.
    My good friend lives in a ranch and he keeps his AR-15 carbine right by the bed with a full 30 round mag and spare. It has a light and Eotech sight. There are some bad people in his neighborhood.
    We played with a Gen1 night vision scope from Vietnam Era on an M1A but thought that was a bit excessive.

    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.

    Usually there's two loaded handguns in my place. One is in the small gunvault, which is in a drawer next to the bed. This unit can be unlocked yet left latched, or what I sometimes do is enter the combination except the last digit, leaving that one number away from the right combo so I got quick access just in case. My carry gun often goes with me thru the house and might be stached in a couple of places, or even bedside.

    This is the same idea I was thinking too. I can't rely on chances of gizmos and gadgets failing in crazy scenarios(saying this as a gadget whore IT).

    I have this one and it is great because it has both a KeyPad and a KEY you can use. It also has pre-drilled mounting holes so it can be mounted anywhere it fits.

    In a galco paddle holster in case I need to put it on quickly. My 16 year old sun knows how to shoot also.
