I want to go peacefully in my sleep when I die, not screaming and crying like all the other people in the car!

OT as for now probably my GLOCK 22 but if I could fit my Mini-14 under my pillow...

Tough choice but since I have 2 pillows I am going to stick my 1911 under one and the 44 mag Redhawk under the other. Have my eyes open for a Ruger Super Redhawk Alaskan. If that happens I will be buying a third pillow.

Really? For the HOUSE? Seems like a bit of overkill.

Oh yeah, never answered the question. Some of my mags hold 8 rounds, some 9. I have two 10 round mags, but I really don't like them protruding past the magwell.

I agree. 3 pillows is a bit much!!! Stick 2 under one.

His son said his dad was a scrappy, tough SOB right to the end.

I figure when I get to an age where I'm not comfortable keeping my collection around - I'll par down to just one handgun for basically home protection or "under the pillow" security. The others will be passed on to my two sons, if still possible then??, to avoid any red tape issues, etc..

If such a scenario would occurr? Which "one gun" from your current collection would it be for you?

My choice: S&W 19-3 4" loaded with .38 +P's. Very accurate and easy to handle.
Agreed, but make mine the 66 rather than the 19!!! It can be used from pest to bear with a simple ammo change.

My S&W 686 is my life-long weapon of choice. Of all the guns I own... way too many to count.
