huh? I was saying that with a round chambered it would save me about half a second from racking the slide. Without a round chambered and safety ON the average thug might take a few seconds or more fumbling with the weapon, giving me more time...

that doesn't sound very safe... with my 1911, the trigger travel is very short and relatively light, I would not do that. In a stressful situation... shaky sweaty hands accidentally placing finger/s in trigger guard when grabbing for the gun... and BOOM.

I've picked up the habit of disengaging the thumb safety as I grab the pistol so this isn't a problem... Plus when I shoot I place my firing hand's thumb on top of the safety anyway.

oh... I also keep a 16" khukuri in it's scabbard next to my pillow. I can chop pennies in half with it so it'd do until I get my hands on something that goes boom.

I see nothing wrong with keeping a loaded firearm within reach as long as the safely is on. Plus I tell my girlfriend where it's at if she ever needs to uuse it and I am not around.


something about this post just made me laugh (must've been the part about telling the GF what to do, LOL).

Seriously, wtf, do you live in south central?

1. By nightstand
2. Yes
3. No
4. No
5. Probably in nightstand
6. Flashlight is near.
shotgun


1) Used to be leaning against wall by nightstand. I moved it to under my side of the bed.
2) Yes, Loaded. Mossberg 590 last three shells are slugs.
3) Not chambered because the sound of a shotgun being chambered is fucking intimidating
4) Safety is on, but if you have a mossberg you understand the safety
5) There's a caddy on the stock holding 5, the gun holds 8. If I needed more it's in my office the next room over.
6) Flashlight is near, might add a tac I dunno.

Currently, with kids so my arsenal is dwendeling.
to answer the questions:
1.Shotgun (in bedroom closet) Makrov In dresser drawer. S&W Sigma 40 in hall closet.
2.Yes, Yes, Yes
3.No, Yes, Yes
4.Yes, Yes, what safety
5. All the extra is in the bedroom closet. If i need to reload then ww3 has started and it will already be strapped to my body.
6.No lights. Night Vision glasses FTW. Splinter Cell style baby( I wish). The light from the street light outside the house provides enough illumination.
