What's on your night stand?
Before I had the girlies I always had my Ruger .357 close at hand. (Security Six) It is now locked away in the gun safe. She's awwwwful purty! And to be hidden away...*sigh*. Well - soon the girlies will be getting their shooting and gun safety lessons down at the range.
Nowadays what I have hidden beneath the bed would never fit on my nightstand. The shotgun is down there awaiting a moment when the damsel may be in distress. Yes. Yes. Yes. It has a trigger lock on it. God forbid I ever have to use it.
Thank God we live in America - every day now - where it is legal for us to own firearms for the defense of our families and ourselves.
I DO keep extra shotgun shells actually ON the nightstand. Along with about a years worth of the Weekly Standard.
I'll have to think of who to tag - and when I do I will post an update.
