    Night Stand Guns!

    Goes like this; I received a new Stack-On Quick access pistol safe for my B-day to but next to the bed. This isn't quite the one I wanted but it will work to keep the loaded guns locked up when the grandkids come over to visit. No intention here of theft protection, just a means to keep the kids safe.

    So I put my PT92C in there with an extra 15 round mag I had and then asked the wife which gun she wanted in the safe. W/O hesitation she says My 45! Wow she is serious!

    When the wife said she wanted a "45" by her bed, was she referring to a .45 caliber pistol, or was she referring to her 45 year old boyfriend?

    I keep my Officers 1911 out now, as my only child living with me is almost 22 and when I have grandkids over, I shut and lock the bedroom door so that sneaky children can't happen upon the gun. It's also a tactical move, because I would prefer to have my Springfield XD Mod2 ready to go, but if somebody did find my gun somehow, at least there is are a couple of safeties that they would have to figure out how to bypass before the trigger would pull.

    When Leonidas was preparing to make his stand, a Persian envoy arrived. The envoy explained to Leonidas the futility of trying to resist the advance of the huge Persian army and demanded that the Spartans lay down their arms. Leonidas told Xerxes "MOLON LABE", or "Come And Get Them."

    I don't use a nightstand, I have a bedside holster for my G2c. My grandkids all live at least three hours away. I do have a lockbox for if they would ever show up.

    Although I don't have an actual nightstand, this has sat loaded inside of your standard plastic clamshell case for going on 2 years now...


    The Taurus Judge Magnum, loaded with 3 rounds of Federal Premium .410 Handgun 000 Buck and 2 rounds of Barnes VOR-TX 200gr SCHP .45LC.

    I also have a Mossberg 590 Shockwave 12 Gauge FDE in a scabbard propped up against my wall besides my bed loaded with Olin Military Grade 00 Buck, but seeing as I haven't gotten a change to test it out yet, the Judge would still be the first thing that I'd reach for, simply because I know from experience what the point of impact is on the ammo. Also, it's lighter than the Shockwave and can be operated with one hand.

    I took it a step further. Have my 605 mounted under a rolling table I use to work on my laptop while in bed. I can deploy it instantly, to fight my way to the XDmod2 45 tactical in top dresser drawer. However when grandkids are over The 605 and XD both go in the safe.

    Whatever I am carrying on a given day gets the nightstand duty along with extra mags...and lately it's been a 45.

    I have a short bookcase next to the bed. For a while I kept my PPQ-45 with Streamlight and Meprolights there. But I didn't think shoving the light-triggered PPQ (with no safety) in between 2 books was the greatest idea. So now I have an S&W mdl 69 44 mag revolver there, with HP 44 Spls.
