    1. Colt King Cobra d/a revolver, 3" barrel, acquired new Sept. 2020
    2. Smith & Wesson Model 642-2 Airweight revolver, snubbie, acquired new two days ago
    3. Remington 870 Express police pump 12 ga. shotgun. acquired 2nh-hand in 2017

    The Colt is my normal bathroom gun which is tucked away in the medicine chest. During showering, it's on the toilet tank lid for easy reach from behind the shower curtain. I place a clean white cloth under the gun to protect it and keep it from slipping off the top of the water tank of the pot. The door between the bathroom and the bedroom is open during showering. The bedroom a/c, fan and dehumidifier is on to take up shower steam so the bathroom gun don't rust. Both stainless revolvers are periodically inspected, cleaned and protected with a film of gun oil. The Smith mouse gun normally resides in my fanny pack and is my normal city/town/suburbs/road travel carry gun. Beyond commode guard duty, the Colt loaded w/ .357 is for out in the boonies where wild animals might be met as cougar, black bear or wolf. The Remmy normally resides at my bedside. It's great to have two handguns in case one needs to go to the gunsmith for fixing. Both the Colt and the Smith fit in my fanny pack but the Smith isn't quite as heavy as the snake gun for everyday carry.

    Both revolvers can shoot .38 Special or +P ammo. I normally keep .38 Special in both for the least recoil and the least muzzle flash in darkness. The Colt and the Smith are companion revolvers since they both can fire .38 ammo.

    Some like it Glock. Others like it "clock". Smith revolvers turn counterclockwise. Colt's turn clockwise.

    Woe is me! I do not have a bathroom gun or a Glock! :eek:
    But I do have a P365 that tags along with me where ever I go and every evening rests on the nightstand where the P-07 resides...:cool:

    Woe is me. I sport no Ruger revolver. I don't even know which way it turns.

    I'd remember the films "Psycho" and "Unforgiven" and reconsider having a piece within an arm's reach whether on the pot or in the shower. P-07, Omega trigger? Mother had an excellent Omega diamond ladies watch. It was buried along with her, God bless her good soul.

    It's important to know. Let's say you only have one round to reload the gun. This could be a life-or-death shot in a bad situation. Which indexed-before-top-dead-center chamber is the last round going in, left of the hammer or right of it? You might not have time to dry-fire the gun 4, 5 or 6 times to get empty chambers out of the way to get to that one live round. Your life may depend upon this knowledge someday. Of course, remaining loaded rounds in auto magazines always travel in the same direction regardless of make as the gun is fired and cycled: up and straight. You can always tell cylinder rotation in revolvers by the location of the hand: to the left or right of the cylinder bolt. Right hands as in Smith push the cylinder counterclockwise, left hands as in Dancing Pony push clockwise.

    Hah! Good answer with the Ruger!
    But I don’t live my life IAW Hollywood movies nor have regard for their themes and ideas, I find real life more interesting.
    Really funny with the Omega insinuation! Really amusing...actually, not really. :D

    The fact is, all moving picture shows aside, silent or talkie, the lavatory is a strategically, tactically, vulnerable area in your home. Burglars, home invaders, can hear the shower running. The shower water impairs your hearing. Bad hombres with ears know there is a person in the shower to sneak up on. Bathrooms, small and confined, often only have one door in and out and no path for a hasty retreat.

    I prefer something that SHOOTS, and I don't mean peas, to guard my throne room. Somebody tries to pull a Norman Bates in my shower will be unpleasantly surprised by a shiny "snake" loaded with "venom".

    You don't know my address. About 40 million American households have at least one gun in them. There aren't that many rooms in the average house.
