Best Defense says to avoid the nightstand...
Did they say why?
My nightstand is the only piece of furniture close to me (other than the bed). I sleep better knowing that my .45 is safely locked away from my kids but accessible to me in about five seconds (I timed it) should the need arise. I keep other guns elsewhere but I wouldn't give up the one right next to me.
If it has to do with a burglar looking there first, they can have it. Where could I put it that would be accessible quickly in the middle of the night, but that is safe from a burglar? Furthermore, kneeling to retrieve the gun from the area between the bed and the wall affords me a tactical advantage that running across the room doesn't.
