I have been thinking of getting one of these for my nightstand weapon. So many commercials I see have them just sitting on the nightstand and I wonder if anyone actually does that? I do not have any children in my home so I keep the pistol in the top drawer of my nightstand. Should we have any company any gun that I am not wearing goes in a safe to keep away from little (or big) curious fingers. The bottom line is I think that although I like the concept, maybe one of these isn't really what I need. Any reason to think otherwise? I do like gadgets and technology though...so that aspect makes it interesting to me.
