It's made of anodize aluminum with a polycarbonate lense, (like Lexan) tough and runs on three AAA batteries.

In reply the Original Post, You could give one of these a try, depending on if there are kids in the house.

Ultimate Bed Holster | Picture Gallery

Just pulling the bed away from the wall an inch and a half or so is plenty of room.

my only concern with a bed holster is i could see myself grabbing the gun while im asleep and killing myself from the way i sleep. even off the side of my bed. but it is a fast way to draw your weapon... hmm

If you keep it with a round in the chamber and ready to go in your sock drawer, you should not have issues with lint. If you keep it with your breech open, then it woud be easy for lint and stuff getting in there and possibly causing you problems.

You could always wear an ankle holster to bed.

I wont keep a loaded pistol too close to me.

True story, When my father passed away I didn't sleep for a couple of days. Well finally I fell asleep at 630am or pretty close to that and a family friend of ours came over to visit my mom and consoul her. Well the only thing I heard was the dog barking and going nuts and I jumped up out of bed and went on to beat that a**... I broke his nose and he lost a couple of teeth and I had no idea what I did until my mom tackled me off of him.

This all happend when I was 16. I fear for anyone that wakes me up in a sleep because they better be prepared to take my life.

On a side note I have a killer scar on my hand from the teeth bashing. People tend to see those and leave you alone...

On the light issue. Go to home depot you can pick a LED lensor up for $40.00 it's one of the best little lights I've ever owned. I am quite impressed with it. It will shine a concentrated beam for over 500 feet and it's designed to cause momentary blindness! It's crush proof, water proof, and shock proof runs off of 3 triple a's. It has a single led bulb and 24 krt. gold terminals (so they won't get the funkies from old batteries). It's made by coast.
