Bedside gun and gear!!
What is your bedside rig? Here is mine:
I have decided to have guns and gear for lots of scenarios. If I wake up in the night and actually see someone in my room, I keep my daily carry rig (Glock 23 with a Crimson Trace grip laser and trigger guard light combination, loaded with Federal HST's) in a Crossbreed Bedside Back-Up.
I had to modify the bedside Backup a bit. Because the kydex is so smooth, it just slipped around between the mattresses. I used spray adhesive and affixed 80-grit sandpaper to both sides. Now it is as solid as two sheets of kydex can be...
In the morning, I either put the G23 back in the safe or put it on to wear for the day. I don't leave guns out, even though I don't have kids. I don't want to leave $800+ rigs out for thieves to steal.
If I hear a bump in the night, but I'm not exactly sure what it is, I will leave my G23 there and open my GunVault Deluxe to retrieve my Glock 21 with Streamlight TLR-2 (with red laser), loaded with Hornady Critical Duty's. I will also carry my Fenix TK15 with the strap around my wrist. I chose 45acp for this duty because the BOOM of 45acp actually is a couple of decibels quieter than the CRACK of 9mm or 40S&W. I am very concerned with keeping my hearing...
I happen to also keep my Howard Leight electronic hearing protection on my bedside table, but I'm not sure I'd ever throw those on.
If I was seriously hunkering down and/or there was no doubt of someone in my house, I'd go to my master closet and key in the combo for my Shotlock wall-mounted shotgun vault. It is a Mossberg 590a1 and sports a Streamlight TLR-1s and a Trijicon front bead. It also has a single-point sling attachment point (Blackhawk sling is right next to it in the closet) and a stock sleeve for extra rounds. I load #1 buckshot and have 2 extra boxes.
What's your set-up?
