As a recent Pew poll reveals, most people own their guns primarily for personal protection. The problem is, no matter how “operator” you are, very few of us carry when we sleep (go figure). You want to be ready, of course, in case you hear the proverbial bump in the middle of the night. But that raises the question as to where your gun will slumber when you do.
Lots of gun owners, having done their duty to perpetuate the species, have procreated. Some of us have smaller versions of adult humans roaming freely in our homes. Creatures around whom we’re not comfortable leaving a firearm un-attended, even on the nightstand next to the bed.
A friend has invented a prototype device that we hope to be able to show you in the near future, something that may be a good option for this dilemma. In the mean time your choices are pretty much limited to items like a small safe in a drawer, contraptions that attach to your nightstand, something secure and lockable in a nearby closet, or…what? Where do you keep your bump-in-the-night gun?
