Thread: Where do you keep your firearms when sleeping

    To answer OP..... Ruger .357 snubbie on top of the dresser. 9mm hi-cap auto in top drawer (back up). Wife has her S&W snubbie handy and the cell phone. Shotgun and AR-15 in closet for back up, if needed.

    Fortunately I don't have kids running around the place and the cats haven't expressed any interest in confrontation fighting.... they just head for their "bolt holes", at SPEED! (Nice "alarm" system, though.)

    Which part of "... shall NOT be infringed..." confuses you?

    No kids at home anymore...shotgun and pistol both hang on the side of the bed...G26 with one in the chamber and 17 in the magazine and 12 GA. With 7 in the tube and trigger pulled.

    My highly anti-social cat makes for an excellent alarm system as well.

  6. When people say that they sleep with a gun underneath their pillow.. Is that a run-on joke that I haven't picked up on?

    Sorry. I'm fairly new to the site and am now just starting to pick up on the humor. Like the concealed weapons badge joke.

    So is this another one? It seems ridiculous to me that someone would sleep with a gun under their pillow-so I'm assuming 'Yes'.

    Same here.

    Allow me to answer this one, guys...NO. THIS IS NOT THE JOKE THREAD. I will speak for myself here -- I sleep with my CC gun under my pillow (and my cell phone) at all times when hubby will not be home even though I have a 129.9 lb rottweiler sleeping on the same bed. When hubby is home, he knows what to do with his gun. Mine and the cell phone goes where I can easily reach it then. My gun in bed with my hubby will not be a good idea because I might move or get restless at night and it might move downwards between us and I just might mistaken it for something else other than my gun...maybe his gun? Hmmm...that's another story for another day... Oh well...enough entertainment for the day. Back to work!

    Don't forget about the CCW cape.

  10. True story about some friends of mine. She wakes up in the middle of the night and gets up to get a glass of water in the kitchen. He gets up and walks past her, gets his revolver and goes back to bed. On her way back to bed she stops at the bathroom and while in there hears a shot come from the bedroom. When she gets there, her husband has a gunshot to his head and blood is everywhere. He then screams, "What the hell did you do to me"? She had no idea that he was sleep walking and shot himself. She was taken into custody and questioned for 12 hours before the GSR test was done on the husband and they found out she was telling the truth. He survived since the bullet only grazed his head. Needless to say, no more guns in their house.

    I would not feel comfortable with a loaded gun under my pillow. I move around and adjust the pillows throughout the night. Too many opportunities for it to end up on the floor or get shifted to somewhere other than where I would expect it if I needed it. On my nightstand I always know where it is and it's positioned perfectly for me to grab it in one easy motion.
