This by-the-bed thing brings up a kinda funny development.

About a year ago I taught a friend to shoot. She had been through a very bad marriage with a crooked cop - who had beat and threatened her with his service pistol. All the men in her life had refused to allow her to learn to shoot. Told her she was tto dumb, etc.

I taught her. She became a very good shooter! She and I took the CCW class (her pushing). She bought her first gun - a 357 Colt Trooper. She used to put that under her pillow at night. Said it made her sleep so much better!

Rest of the story: She now owns four guns...

Good for you.....and her!

Not to change the subject, but I'm curious; why is it that so many people include a knife in the picture when they photograph a gun to post here?

It's not by choice. You gonna say "no" to a very sharp assisted-opening knife? That's in your pocket!?

Bread-n-butter...

I have 45 ACP and 357 magnum on my night stand. Very comforting.

German Law says that I can only use a gun for self defense if the other person has a gun. Well it is hard to get a gun here, so I have these beauties if the BG does not have a firearm. Full functioning and authentic ninja and katana swords. I am highly trained in Iaido, and just as deadly with my swords as I am with my firearms. The top ninja sword is my go to weapon. I also have pepper spray that forms a cloud in the sprayed area, so I also use chemical warfare. There, something new.

G17 w/nightsights is the first gun available. Beretta 1201FP is in the safe loaded w/00 Buck as well.

My choice also. I use Hydra Shock.

Any HD firearm needs to stop whatever is attacking, and be no threat to other innocent persons or pets. I am comfortable with the G20 because no other people are on the other side of my drywall.
