I'm nearly right there with you once my orders get in, except I have a SCAR 16/17 and .45 1911 instead
Hell yeah, the SCAR is a badass rifle. Oh I got the 1911 ready as well.

By the bed, Mossberg 930 loaded with slug, #4 buck shot, and 00 buck shot in that order.

Ready to go, in the nightstand, bottom drawer: HK USP Tactical .45, Colt Cobra snub nose, S&W Model 36, Walther PPK/s, Colt lightweight Combat Commander .38 Super, and A Sig RCS with Crimson Trace Carbon Fiber laser grips.

Top drawer Colt M45A1, Dan Wesson ECO-9; and a Sig P-365. On the top of the nightstand is a full size EAA Witness steel frame .38 Super; 3 magazines with the one in the gun loaded with 17 rounds of Silvertips.

Itís an oversized nightstand! The rest of the gunís are locked away in my Personal Armory. With regards to the cellphone all I need to do push the button and say call 911. I do let them know Iím a retired LEO, am armed, and when Iíve verified they are on scene Iíll holster up and greet them if itís safe - never know; my Pretty Pit Athena my have someone cornered!

12 gauge BPS w/ slug barrel but loaded with buckshot, trusted (tried and true) 1911's strategically placed locked and loaded (ball ammo because I trust it to work).
I try to handle a 1911 every day, just a few dry fires but with the safety on to begin with to mimic a real situation.
I pray they never have to be put into use.

My 1911 milspec sit on the closet shelf 5' from the bed. At night my 3" EDC 1911 is next to it, both with 2 extra mags. Since the grandkids are no longer living here I need to load the 20 Ga. and the 30-30.

My 1911's are home built from ground up (retired machinist making my own recoil spring set-ups, etc., etc.) and regularly see range time. The garage is full size mil. spec., but all others are Commander 4.25" barrel to 3" Officers and compacts. Bedroom .45, 3" / carry 3.5" in both .45 and 9 mm / living room .45 Commanders. I make sure mags are clearly marked for use with each. The 1911 was a breeze to use with it's 5 safeties from my 1965 introduction in Naval service to today. There are tons of fine handguns out there, but the 1911's parts availability and the ability to fix them in the field with a tool as simple as a 10 penny nail has stood the test of time. It's simple...I want in a hand-gun, something like that old car you used to be able to fix under a shade tree. literally hundreds of places have 1911 parts and I can keep my gun running when the SHTF because you can't send most others to a gunsmith or back to the manufacturer, without having it confiscated. Someday, it may become more than just a game to be able to tear down, fix and reassemble your weapon blindfolded. But that's just me...get to know your own brand of firearm from inside out, you'll be glad you did!

Why the mixed load- and why that particular order...? I know mixing slugs and buckshot (and ball and HP in pistol magazine) was trendy in the late 90s, but its still Forest Gumps box of chocolates...

The pistol is from 2019, but the rifle's from very late july 1944... still doing her duty. Clip in the rifle + safety on (this implies one in the chamber), clip on the sling, bando full of clips, and the .45 is condition 1 7+1 with two spare sticks on the side of the belt you don't see there. 230gr jhp in the .45. 150 fmj in the big boomstick. That's my bedroom.

If it's something going down in the middle of the night, the belt goes on quick and also holds my phone.

If I'm in the house, the belt is on me, and the rifle close by. Bando stays in the sock drawer.

Whichever gun I grab first, defends the house. They're ALL loaded, ALL the time.

I keep six guns in my bathroom so I won't be caught off guard no matter what position I'm in.

Do you mean a sixgun like a six-hole revolver, or *six* guns?

Words matter ;o)

10 1/2" (SBR) LWRC M6-A-5 .556 sits on the nightstand and is my "They're coming through the door" gun. A Glock 22 .40 cal with Surefire X-400 also sits on the nightstand and is what I carry in my hand when walking around the house at night. When exercising it's a holstered G43, and when tooling around town, the neighborhood and everywhere else (non Covid-19), it's normally a 5" custom Colt 1911.

When not on her person, my wife keeps her airweight in a holster attached to her side of the bedpost.

When not toting around her Mustang, my daughter keeps it on her nightstand, along with a bunch of other stuff. Not sure why she keeps a skeleton fork in her destructive devices arsenal, but Iím sure she has her reasons.

I have several pistols that are always/routinely out and available and ready to go whenever I am home, regardless of any external situations outside my home (like this overblown coronavirus hysteria). I keep my EDC pistol, NHC 10mm 1911 with 4 spare magazines within reach, whether out and about or inside the house. Inside the house I also keep an AR15 within reach, and a Galil ACE .308 as well as a DW 10mm 1911 and a CZ 75B 9mm pistol in another room. The rest are locked up either in the safe or gun display cabinet. I just brought home a new member of the family and I haven't shot it yet or sighted it in, so it's not in the system for defensive measures in the event of an emergency. If I was expecting real trouble then I would have other items out and ready to go. As it is now, my routine, usual home defense items are al that I have out.


My EDC routine carry and always within reach pistol:

AR15 with Sig 516 upper receiver.

Yup. Same here.

SA Loaded .45 in a near-instant-access gun vault beside my chair in den.

21" 870 hidden in immediate access & hidden spot in kitchen along with SA MilSpec, too.

SA TRP as nightstand gun.

Various carry guns elsewhere.



Recently added a WC Brig/Tac 92. After some range trips with various ammo and it's proven solid....it'll become my nightstand gun with perhaps a Vertec version to take the spot in the den after it's proven. Weapon lights and 20 rd magazines are reassuring.

This is my nightstand gun. I have others I carry and an AR in a closet downstairs but this is the go-to gun when things go bump in the night.

SA TRP w/SureFire light

Very nice.

I wish I had a railed TRP to go along with the standard 5" that's run so well for me.
