Usually I keep a few laying around close by, like the G17 or G31 357 SIG and I always keep a GP100 357 Mag loaded up too. I even keep my new 5" Lipseys 44 Special Gp100 loaded up too! Then the G43 or XDS 9mm are usually loaded up also.

My "nightstand gun" (figuratively, since my HD pistol is actually in a quick access safe near but not on my nightstand) is a .45ACP SIG P250 Compact. It is also one of my main carry guns when I'm visiting a state where I can carry (UT non-resident permit) and often carried in my apartment during waking hours. Sometimes my .45LC S&W 625MG takes its place.

Night Stand is a figure of speech guys. We all are responsible owners right

Mine is also in a Liberty Quick Access Vault.

Dust, an alarm clock, my Kindle, and nasal spray and a lamp.

At least when my puppy Seren hasn't cleaned everything off, which she is wont to do...

IN the nightstand, however, I have a Smith & Wesson 36 3".

And, for the past couple of months, I've also had an S&W Mode 38 Humpback.

Both loaded with 135-gr. Speer Gold Dot HPs.

On my nightstand is a bunch of my wife's junk. I sleep against the wall so no nightstand. I do however tuck my holstered CZ 85B under my pillow.

I have a few boxes of ammo that I have yet to put away, an alarm clock with the clanger type alarm, a paddle and a whip, and some other personal items. I don't keep a gun there and there are no drawers to put a gun in. I don't keep a gun under my pillow - my brother used to do that and woke up one morning with his 44 magnum cocked and in his hand. After that the pistol is placed elsewhere. To get into my house someone is going to have to make a lot of noise and even if they are trying to be sneaky the dogs will alert everyone for miles around that someone is out of place. If they get past the dogs then my wife and I will both be armed with shotguns and the invader will quickly learn that crime doesn't pay. By the time the sheriff arrives they will wish they were flipping burgers at McDonald's. I will have to remove the cuffs to let the sheriff take him away.

If you got gun under your pillow you need to move, divorce, or lay off the coke.

I fail to see how it is any different than having a gun on your nightstand. To each their own.

If you happen to awaken with an intruder in the room, you would be glad your gun was under your pillow....not a bad idea at all. Times are changing. You can learn a lot on this forum if you would be willing to take advice and/or listen to other ideas.

With a gun under my pillow I would be concerned about being awakened by a discharge and having the woman next to me scared or worse (I think) with a bullet wound.

Don't do anything you don't want to explain to the EMTs.

I initially got it for deer hunting, and that is its primary purpose... But I realized it would make a formidable home defense weapon as well.

Glock G40 MOS 10mm, Deltapoint Pro optic, 7" KKM barrel.

Fifteen 200 grain XTP'S at over 1,300 fps should deter pretty much anyone.... Even hiding behind the fridge, across the road, in the neighbor's house, lol.... Disclaimer: I don't have nearby neighbors, and a hungry black bear is far more likely to invade my house than a meth crazed lunatic.

All that depends on your firearm and whether you are sleeping with someone.
