Just to be clear, I carry a 1911 .

My nightstand gun, however, is a Ruger Security Six under the nightstand on the floor.

That's because I'm currently in an apartment, I'm concerned about penetration, and it's loaded with .38 Special wadcutters.

Oh, also a 20 ga. coach gun under the bed with #4 shot.

My EDC is chosen from a Colt Commander, Para LDA Carry, or an SA UC V10.

Best,

Will

I know you said firearm, but these were added to my nightstand armament of late, along with a 460 lumen tac light. Well, beside the nightstand, not in, I guess.

The finest steel and sharp enough to shave with...........................as a man without arms............well, is a man without arms. Or a man without a head for that matter.



Just plain heavy enough to break and destroy anything it is not cutting.......................




This wil be added as well as soon as I work it over and put a new handle on her.





It's all a "history" kind of thing.



Regular FIREAMRS are: One of the 1911 9mm's with solid SD ammo or my Ruger GP100 with solid SD ammo.

Be safe, shoot well.

Glock 19, extra mag, flashlight, phone and shotty. The glock is just there because it is with me all day. The shotty is my go to for HD. The phone is really the first line of defense. I don't ever plan on going after somebody if they are in the lower level. If they want my tv, they can have it. If they want to come upstairs, that is a different story.

Our "house gun" is a 4" Ruger GP100 loaded with .38 special +P rounds in a quick access GunVault lock box. It is equipt with night sights and staged with a very bright SureFire light, a cell phone, and extra rounds. This works for us because it is a super reliable platform that my wife can handle well. I like that it is always ready to go if the need arises, yet secure enough that it should not easily fall into the wrong hands.

My daily carry is a Les Baer Thunder Ranch Special. It is either with me or laying with my clothes at night.

My nightstand gun is an Ithaca Model 37 with a 20 inch barrel. It is loaded and cocked, safety on, chamber empty. As I pick up the gun, the safety comes off, the lock is pressed and a round is pumped into the chamber.

Smith Model 66 loaded with 125 grain +p .38's with a speed loader and Surefire next to it. I carry a 1911 but this revolver is also my wife's go to gun. I keep it on top of a chest a couple of steps from the bed to give myself a few seconds to clear my head before I grab for it. When we leave home it goes in the big safe with everything else I'm not taking with me.

here's my nightstand/carry gun. it's a RIA i keep it condition one. i've played with the idea of getting a compact, lightweight gun for carry, but i've carried a fullsize for 2 years and i see no use in stopping now. i've never owned or shot a compact pistol before. i've had 4 pistols all of them were fullsize 1911's and i carried every one of them. some people complain about the weight of a fullsize, but it seems normal to me.

.38 Special in Living Room Recliner, Beretta 92F in Kydex ZipTied under the Baby's crib (we ran out of room in our small 2 bedroom house, so we made his room from the old dining room) in the center of the house, Master Bedroom I have an AR with all the Goodies and I carry my 1911 Sig TacOps room to room.. Seems a bit much, but home invasions got stupid in our area around Christmas, and I wasn't taking chances with my daughter and newborn son.. And I carry 100% of the time since I returned from Iraq the 2nd time.. I got used to having a weapon on me 24/7, so since I have a permit, I started doing the same thing at home.. We have designated our bedroom as the Fall-To.. So everyone has jobs and duties.. We keep our keys in the bedroom and I even bought a cheap keyless remote for the wife's car and we leave it in our daughters room. And her job is to hit the Panic Button while the wife dials 911.. I recently purchased a pair of Peltor Electronic Ear Muffs and I would like to put them in the nightstand and start using them as well, I think they'd be very beneficial.. All of my Weapons are in Red Status, which means chambered.. My 1911 is also Red and Hammer Back/Safety On.. ALWAYS!! My daughter is old enough to know about guns and not toy around with them, but when that boy starts walking, I am gonna have to rethink things a bit and we may have to purchase a safe.

I keep a Colt Government Model (Cond. 1) and a Surefire light in reaching distance pretty much 24/7.
If the Grandgirls are visiting, the 1911 is on me and other firearms are secured, unless we're shooting em'.
