It's under my pillow (holstered). I live alone, so I have no problems with it being out, and I just cant get to it fast enough from my night stand.

If I kept it under my pillow there's no telling where it would end up if I needed it. I toss around too much when I sleep. My night stand is right next to my bed and has at least two loaded pistols in it. All I've gotta do is get ahold of one of 'em!

My mom was telling me about this TV show she watched when she was younger about this guy who slept with a handgun on his pillow next to him. She says, "Adam, is that what you do?" I said "No, it sleeps on my nightstand next to my shotgun."

I'm a heavy sleeper and I often have a 2 year old (nephew) running around while I'm sleeping...so it's in a lockbox out of his reach. If I slept with it under my pillow, it'd prolly fall under the bed before morning, and my night stand is my dresser and too accessible for the little one.

But, it's in the room I sleep and I can get to it quickly enough if needed...I usually sleep when others are awake anyways.

I keep my P345 and Insight M3X in the dresser drawer next to my bed. My XD9SC is also in the dresser, but because it doesn't have a light, it would be the back up ;)

My XD's next to my 1911 in my nightstand, but my keltec is normally holstered on top of my nightstand.

If it's not on me, then it's in its blade-tech IWB holster in my nightstand drawer...Always loaded

Funny you should mention this, because I was just over helping friend put new siding on his house, I asked him what that hole in the siding was from.... He laughed, and said, at the time it wasn't funny, but now it is... he said that he use to do the "under the pillow" thing, and he had his .45 1911 under his pillow, when he turned and put his arm under the pillow to prop his head up, and BOOM, Yup, it went off. In the middle of the night, a 1911 makes a LOT of noise he said.....LOL
Yes, it went through the sheetrock, into and through a 2x4 and exited the siding. He found the bullet on the ground about a foot away from the exit point.

Anyway, always have and always will keep it in my night stand.

My .45 is either on my nightstand, or holstered in the XDGear holster that came with it mounted on the side of my bed. Easy to grab... My Surefire right next to it.;)
