Bedside Pistol Accessibility / Security

What is everyone doing with this?

Lots of options out there. I know I don't want a keyed entry.

Never played with or used a finger lock system.

No kids in the house so options are open, but looking for some concealment as well.

Is your position a short term gain - or a long term loss? Separate the issues.

finger lock system...

Those safes with the finger grooves that... I guess you tap a code or something.

Re: Bedside Pistol Accessibility / Security

My wife and i have been keeping ours in our night stands, but I've been thinking about trying something like this-

I definitely don't like the idea of having to mess with keyed locks or codes when half asleep and under stress.

The Second Ammendment...
Its kind of a big deal.

Thus the reason for this post.

Re: Bedside Pistol Accessibility / Security

I've used a Blackhawks serpa(retention holster) mounted on the rear of my nightstand for a long long time. It works great. A very minimal amount of "security" as it can't just be pulled out quickly by someone that sees it and would try to grab it, but very easily accessible, and well concealed.

This is soon to change though, as I have a child that is an explorer, and rapidly approaching the age where the gun will need a more secure solution.

Re: Bedside Pistol Accessibility / Security

My 38snubby fits quite nicely between the bed rail and the box spring. There is a ledge there and the gun rests on the ledge. The gun is concealed but within easy reach and easily accessible without opening anything.
The bed is an 1890's antique but I've often thought that it was built with the idea of keeping a gun there.

I screwed an old holster to the back of my headboard for my 38.

Great idea!
They also .make holsters that are attached to a flat piece of plastic. The flat piece slips between the mattress and box spring with the holster mounted outside. The gun is concealed and readily accessible.

Re: Bedside Pistol Accessibility / Security

I've got handguns within six feet of every spot in both my house and camp....all require nothing except to grab one and deploy. No kids so that is not a concern....

Each of the bedrooms I sleep in also has an 870 with #4 buck on cruiser safe in the corner nearest my side of the bed as well as a handgun on top of the bedstand...

And, yes, there's one on the top of each commode....as well as a .45 in each vehicle along with the Rohrbaugh I carry...
