It varies as I do rotate a few in and out.

My normal to go night stand pistol is a plain Jane black P220 .45 with night sights and slim grips. I keep one in the chamber, full mag, and a spare mag ready to go.

At other time I will have model 19 S&W .357, Sar K2 .45, FNP-45, 1911, or what ever else strikes my fancy.

Also I have a 12 gauge shotgun close by loaded with 00 buck.

The same gun I carry on me when I'm awake. If its not on me, then I'm sleeping and it is in my nightstand. If I'm awake, it is on me.

Ruger Sp101 loaded with 38 specials. Next to it a flash light and a safariland speed loader for 5 more shots.

I do have a Mossberg 12 gauge loaded and ready to go in my closet safe, but in all reality, if I'm awakened from a dead sleep.. I don't know if I would have time to get to the closet and get the safe open in time. I think the shotgun is more of a SHTF type thing where I had atleast a bit of warning before all hell broke loose.

I never bothered with separate gun for night duty. My carry gun works just fine.

Lots of great robbing material in here since it all seems to be in the most obvious place for a gun

All my guns get locked up when I leave the house. It's actually a law in my state, but even if it wasn't they would get locked up anyway. I cant afford to replace stolen guns, well I guess I could but I would rather put that money towards new guns .

My dedicated nightstand pistol is a Springfield operator MC. I also keep my ar15 with four 30 round mags. I also keep my SIG 226 and HK p30 in a cubby hole on my bed, both of those are loaded but in Serpa holsters.

My operator stays in condition one.

The rifle is within reach if I stand up. The handguns are in reach with me laying down

Dragline, makes a good point...locking up your guns when leaving the house...the trouble here on the farm is that there's usually several out and ready and it's a royal PITA to put them away....that said, #2 son lost $4000+ worth of high grade Colts to a home invasion a cpl months ago...his 8 month's pregnant wife and 1 yo baby returned from a :30 trip to the grocery to find the front door kicked in. They live on a farm like we do and no other house is in sight, making it an obvious target.

So what's the whole story. Son's known in the area as a shooter...no safe in the house, lot's of friends and hangers on to many BBQ's there, had work done on his house in the last 6 months....lot's of people had the opportunity to case the house. They were just lucky she wasn't home when it went down.

Their answer is this: got a home alarm system and key pad entry, posted as such in the front and back yards, all doors locked when home or away, touch pad gun safe's in kitchen and bedroom, bolted down. AND NOW THEY BOTH CARRY IN THE HOUSE. The county police responded in :25 minutes....25 MINUTES TO A PREGNANT WOMAN'S CALL FOR HELP. That's the best they could do from ten miles away....

We all get complacent, me too...I"ve changed the way we store, use and guard our guns....think of it as insurance, like keeping a fire extinguisher around, using a screen in front of the fire place, keeping our farm gates closed and latched...common sense stuff, but easy to overlook...

an older by wiser, Rod and family....
