    I have a 45# draw recurve bow and 2 dozen nasty looking homemade broadhead arrows in a quiver by the bed. Silent but deadly; bows don't need a can, man.  :)

    I don't need a bedside gun.  On the door to my bedroom, I have a sign that says "Gun Free Zone."

    You can do a search on posts and threads for anyone's user name back 7-8 years..... I don't think pretending to be gunless now is going to fool anyone.....

    Side saddle?  Extended mag?  The point of a shotgun is to be light and handy.  When you gonna need to reload in a firefight?  And that extended mag just adds weight.  Do you think a burglar will give you time to put on your earmuffs?  And that stock.. it's ugly!  And that light'll get you killed... they'll know exactly where you are.  So much fail this setup.

    Are those trained attack lady bugs, or feral strays?

    Mine is a tacticool fudd blaster as well.  Perfect for hunting wabbits when they go bump in the night.

    Whatever firearm you keep bedside, keep a pair of earplugs or ear muffs there too. Saving your or your loved ones' life loses a lot its magic if you end up deaf.

    I would sacrifice more than my hearing for the life of a loved one.

    I thought the ear plugs were just for the married guys?

    I can see them being a possibility in a barricade situation, but only electronic ones, and it would be best for the whole family to have them. 
    Again, only a possibility.

    Hmmmm - now that makes sense. I'm planning on a small addition to this house in a couple of years, making the master BR a decent size and add a walk-in closet. I'm thinking of "hardening" the walk-in as it would be dirt cheap to do, and "supplies" would be staged there, hidden behind my dance costumes!

    I sleep with my earmuffs on, just in case someone sneaks past my attack cat.  I also prop a chair  against the doorknob.  Kinda unhandy when I have to pee, but I take my bedside gun with me...it's getting a little rusty, though, for some reason.  :)

    I had a dumpy flat in a seedy part of town once. I kept a jar of marbles proped against the door at night, and left a match hid on the top edge when I wasn't home.

    I needed ear plugs there, but never thought of it. Oddly enough, my bedside gun there was a $40.00 Montgomery Wards 20ga bolt action shotgun with a 30" barrel loaded with #4 shot. Tacticool baby!

    I fired a shot in a very confined space once.  No ear protection.  It was very unpleasant, and I hope to never have to do it again.  I did not lose my hearing, and expect if I ever neede to do so in an hd situation, I would not lose my hearing then either.  Just don’t make a habit of it.

    So the jack russells had duck for dinner instead of you, that hardly seems fair.

    While I have several options readily available, which I choose not to disclose, my primary weapon of choice is an 11 pound Norwegian Forest throw-cat.
