Benjamin .177 pump pistol here.

But I was a teenager at the time...

Still have the pistol and it still works. I like the way the bronze shows through on top of the barrel from the thousands of times I've charged it.

H&R Topper 12. Then I got a Glock 23 Gen 3, six months later.

I suppose my "first" nightstand gun was a Crosman "357" co2 powered .177cal pellet shooting revolver. First real firearm in that role was my Smith & Wesson Model 17-6.

Ruger SR9c was the first nightstand gun and only recently replaced when I got my hands on an italian Beretta 92a1 with a crimson trace railmaster light.

EAA windicator... 357mag...snubbie....I was in college and it was inexpensive. It would get so hot during range sessions that the chambers would expand and ejection was impossible. Had to practice w 38spl just to get through 100 rounds.

Charter Arms Off Duty, made in the early 80s so it was a quality revolver.
Current?



It was pointed out that the 1980s clock radio brought the "class" level down. I said, "Yeah? It still works - how many electrical devices from the 80s can say the same thing?"

First nightstand gun was an Ithaca 37 handed down from my grandfather. Still have it, but got an 18" barreled version that now serves nightstand duty. My .357 j frame (clip draw) is always within reach, too.
