My Mossberg 500 is right next to my bed when i go to sleep with 00 buckshot in it. The picture is when i first bought it, now it has a buttstock on it. Never fired it with the pistol grip. Also next to my bed is my GP100 for a little extra security. If im sleeping downstairs on the couch or my chair, my Glock 17 is always on my hip. Minus the 33rd magazine, thats just for range fun.
