Yes i mean it Do you have a gun you leave in the bathroom..

I mena this is one of the time you are most likely to be off guard with shower running and the exhust fan it makes it might hard to hear ..

Example

I get up about 6:20 in the morning and head to the bathroom to shower etc etc i cant hear the house alarm over the shower nor the Fan as of late i been thinking of getting something to leave in there all the time hidden but not hard to get to

I have been thinking of another Glock seems Gen 2 40 Short and weaks are very reasonable even with Night sights We all know one thinkgs glocks seem to hold of very well even in wet conditions


i was thinking of storeing it in maybe a Blue Anti Rust Bag

So what do you all think Over the top or what ?


Also what brought this up again was radio replaying the interview of the guy who shot the burglar who was drawing down on him while he was on the :toilet:

No , the HK is a HE finish that stands up nicely to the daily steam from the shower. I considered putting 1 in a dry bag in the shower, but it just seems a bit too much.

I dont think i could do it to a Hk but have no problem thinking about doing it with a Glock

i Certainly wouldnt do it to my USP 45 and i can find a Hk for under 400$

For me Bud - as most know - carry is 16/7 so - a trip to bathroom, morning noon or night - is accompanied by Mr SIG.

If first thing then I take my clothes in ready to dress - so gun is in rig - if end of day then I only undress in bathroom - so again Mr SIG is present.

However paranoid it may sound to some - the gun is immediately accessible at all times - only way I'll have it.

We do have one house gun concealed - plus Bonnie has her carry somewhere around but neither of those is so immediate as mine.

I keep a Kel-Tec P11 under the bathroom sink inside the cabinet. Easy access and who cares if it rusts, it only cost 200.00. Oil it once a month and it is fine.

Ahh OK Bud - yeah realize the work thing. Tho perhaps thinking too that all time not at work, you would be carrying.

Re the old lady thing well - I guess on reflection - could do worse than let a snub ''live'' under the pile of fresh towels - within quick reach from most areas of the room. :wink:

I think I'm with you on this one. On reflection we do have a lot of cleaning chemicals under the bathroom sink, so if I had just a little bit of warning, I could make the future of his vision a bit dicey.

Also my wonderpup, MISSY the Newfoundland dog, is always in the bathroom with me, I think she's waiting on an opportunity to practice her trade and "rescue" daddy from the evil tub. I think that in the situation with a BG....and looking at it from MR BG, I'd rather get shot than face all those edged weapons in a ticked off 140 pound dog.

I think keeping one in the bathroom is a little much. If you dont feel safe while in the shower or tub then take your carry piece in with you and keep it in the fold of a towel on the sink or somewhere close by.

Gunner Ive seen these at past gun shows and was recently thinking of getting one for my livingroom. Do you know of a website or catalouge where I can order one?

Hey pierced456

Nice Avatar! I like it!

I am not armed in the shower.
I do keep my home perimeter alarm on.
And....the 4 legged Canine Alarm is also always working.
My dog is right outside the tub when I'm in the shower.
She will not move until I exit the shower.

Havin' a pistol handy in the shower worked well for John Wayne - it was The War Wagon, wasn't it? Wasn' the line somethin' like "No Hard Feelings"? Not too sure how hot water and black powder would get along in real life though. :cowboy:

Best,
Jon

Around the house, my pistol is on me when I am clothed. When I am in the shower, it's resting under a folded towel to keep mist off it. The shower door is transparent---when we got it my wife wanted the transparency to avoid "The Psycho Thing".

Plus, a BG seeing me naked and reaching for a towel might be fooled into assuming my motive was modesty.

For those who think carrying around the house or a pistol next to the shower is going too far: I admit I feel a little silly doing it, but I would feel incredibly stupid if I got myself killed because the pistol was in the other room when needed. What's the point of having a pistol, getting training, etc., if you don't give yourself at least the opportunity to actually use it if necessary?
