1) It'd take me more time to get the pistol out than to grab my 1911 from my bio safe next to the bed.
2) I agree with one of the above posters when he says "out of sight out of mind".
3) Having been burglarized I know for a fact that one of the first things a burglar does is to toss the bed-- the weight of that pillow would be a dead give away if someone got complacent and left their pistol in the pillow (which brings us back to point 1).
I realize that the complacent factor isn't your problem-- I'm listing why I personally wouldn't buy a pillow holster. Besides the reasons I listed... I don't think my wife would want a loaded gun pointed at her, in a pillow, under a pillow, or anywhere in our bed.
Thank you for your feedback! You would at least get one round off and that's a lot better than none in a life or death situation. However I would have to recommend removing the pistol from the pillow before firing.
1. You would be surpised at how quickly you can retrieve the pistol from the pillow. With the combination of the sock being permenantly fixed inside of the pillow and it being made with a slick spandex material it is actually quite fast. I'd be willing to bet that it's faster than your biosafe. Besides if the intruder is already in your room and you have a split second to get your pistol then your biosafe just wont cut it.
2. I am not sure what you mean by this statement?
3. I have also been robbed and they sure didn't touch my pillows. They did however get away with my digital handgun safe (similar to your biosafe) in my night stand, which was bolted in, among other things. Even though the handgun is concealed very well and it is highly unlikely that a burglar would find it, I would definitely have to recommend locking it up in a heavy, permanently attached wall safe while it's not in use. I use my favorite carry piece (Glock 23) in the pillow and that thing goes everywhere with me. I just slide it in place every night before going to bed.
I am sorry to hear that your wife wouldn't be comfortable with a loaded gun pointed at her head. Did you know the pillow is ambidextrous and can simply be pointed away from her head? Storing a handgun in this pillow is no less secure than carring it on your hip, in your pocket, on your shoulder, or any other holster for that matter.
