I keep my beretta under my pillow when I sleep. My wife thinks I'm nuts. I have a small gun safe, but I'm an empty nester, no kids around. I tell her its more commmon than she thinks. :smt102 Where do you keep your pistol?
My Sig stays in the drawer of my bed side table at night and is carried all day. I'd shoot myself if it was under my pillow, I move around too much (I'm a wall puncher). My Bersa and my Smith, for the most part, remain in a metal carry case in, of all places, my bathroom.
For me, it depends on where I am. If I'm at my apartment at school, I put my Cougar 8040 under my pillow (I keep it as close as possible because I have a glass door leading to my porch which is usually open because of the heat at night). When I'm in my basement room at my mother's house it's next to the bed.
My Security Six and NAA mini revolver as well as all forms of ammo (excluding pellets) are kept locked in my parent's room. No questions asked. My little brother and I's long guns are in my room on a gun rack and standing up in the corner.
