I'm with CA357, mine is on the night stand right beside my head. We don't have any children so I don't have to worry about that. Once the kids start coming I'll get a quick access safe for night stand use.

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.
do they fit in the xd 1" tactical light holder

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...
yeah i could see my friend comping over at night to mess with me and me shooting him. thats why i need my xd in a place where ill be awake and alert before i use it

Sorry to hear about your father passing. May I ask if you normally go without sleep for a couple of days each week? If not, then why be away from something you have for defense? In that rare case when the crackhead passes out on the floor of your entryway after kicking in the door? That way, you would have plenty of time to get to your defense gun and load it. Just sayin.

I keep my '95 Nagant pistol on the floor by the bed. In the morning I return it to it's home in my pistol safe.
I figure if you're going to shoot a burglar, might as well use something historic and unique. Plus...7 shots...bonus!

Most people sleep sound enough that someone could walk into their room without waking them, including me. I won't keep a pistol in sight so that it MAY be used against me.

Most likely I'll be woken up by the alarm or by the dogs, but I can't be positive of that. So, I have an unlce mikes holster tucked in the bed handles with my gun in it. I's covered by the sheets and blanket, but it's still within reach.

I also have an led light I bought from walmart(coleman) that puts out 115 lumens fro $25.

No, I get about 9-12 hours a sleep every day. Sleeping is one of my favorite things to do.

I have to stand up and take a step toward the bedroom door to reach a gun with a light mounted on the rail, right below a 3-cell Mag-lite standing on top of the dresser. Handgun is in exactly the same place and position every night.
Burying your lifeline under socks isn't tactically beneficial, so if you can, keep the thing not just out, but in a place where you'll have to go to in response to an invasion.

You sound like my wife. She's sleep thru the sound of a dump truck running thru a nitroglycerin plant. Me on the other hand wake up at anything and everything. I seriously doubt someone could get into the house without waking me up.

I've got one of those colemans too. Brought one home for a hunting light and my wife made me buy her one so we've got a couple now. Great light for the money.
