Default Bedside holsters?

Hey guys just wondering if any of you know any good bedside holsters or a good place I can keep my sig at night so that I can get to it fast in case anything goes down, I used to have it on the side of my bed but my new matress prevents me from doing that anymore so I'm trying to get some ideas of where I can keep it, any info or ideas would help thanks-

I don't use one myself, but my friend cut down an old belt, and used an old OWB holster and strapped it to the bed post just between the bed and the nightstand.

Another option is a cheap nylon holster from any online store and some velcro tape from your local hardware store.

If you have the money to spare:

If not, you might be able to fabricate something similar.

same, except I put mine on the computer desk instead. I lock the gun every time I leave the house, and take it out and put it on my desk when I'm home

I'm surprised at the initial response. I keep mine in a small Sentry safe next to my side of the bed... electronic lock with 5-digit combination. I also use it as my ammo safe, and can access my G19 outfitted with TLR-3 in about 1.5 seconds. What about silent intruders in the night having access to your gun?

Granted, at my house they would first have to get by multiple locks, nosy neighbors and a pit bull... but better "safe" than sorry.

I picked this up recently as a filler to apply a coupon code, and I'm quite happy with it.

I have a Titan safe on the bed frame. If you have a blackhawk serpa holster you can get the qd kit and make a bracket for in between the mattress and box spring.

Mine's in a little shelf just under the top of my nightstand, no drawer to open but it's not in plain view and I can instinctively and immediately put my hand on it w/my eyes closed.

As far as the silent intruders, if they get anywhere near my gun, they've already succeeded in getting past my bionic-eared dog who can be at the opposite end of my 1600sg. foot house and still hear me trying to quietly sneak open a bag of Cheesy-Poofs INSIDE the cupboard in an attempt to muffle the sound so I don't have to share.

This would mean that they are either Ninja's or space aliens form the future who can beam down and materialize at my bedside, so resistance is futile. (and they'd be able to get into a little electronic bedside safe.

^This!^ plus an alarm system, plus a security bar on the front door and another on the bedroom door, plus secured windows means that I probably have enough warning to make and eat breakfast before confronting the intruder.

I keep my bedroom pistol in the drawer next to my bed when home because I don't have (or allow) kids in my house. But if I had rug rats I'd be using an electronic pistol safe next to my bed. Making the weapon too accessible means that you can grab it mid-dream or grab it before realizing that the sound that woke you is the girlfriend coming back from a 3am potty break. Keeping it in a drawer gives you that buffer.

My wife and I each have electronic gun vaults built into our nightstands. A few mods and now you'll have to take the nightstands with the gun vault, or break the nightstands into kindling (not terribly difficult, but noisy ).

We can get our guns out in about 2-3 seconds.

As others have said, I'd be honored to meet the ninja who can get past the locks & alarm but mostly the dog that can hear an owl fart.
The dog is trained -- one bark when a person comes onto our property (needs work, sometimes a trespassing cat will elicit a yap at 3am), and 2-3 when someone comes to the edge of the house itself (same issues as above). I don't believe Usain Bolt could get into our bedroom before both guns were out.

In the middle of the night, in the dark, the only manipulation I want is clicking off the safety. The other hand is reaching for the flashlight. No holster for me.

I like that security bar, I may have to order a few of those, thanks. $11 for a little more peace of mind is a great deal, and we just installed a couple of sliding glass doors.

I agree with you on that little "buffer".

My weapon is quick and easy to grab, but I have made the decision to keep it (for now anyway) with mag in but chamber empty for just this reason.

My wife is not really a shooter just yet, and I kind of like the idea of having to take that split-second to think (and chamber a round) and having to manipulate the slide will hopefully help to put my brain into gun safety mode rather than "half-asleep dreaming I'm Batman" mode.

Besides, I shoot a better first shot w/SA.

I have recently changed the nightstand weapon from Sig P239 and a flashlight, (no free hand) to my CZ SP-01 with TLR-1s so I don't have to carry the flashlight anymore.

After some extensive research here is my setup having kids in my house.

http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/76449-1.html

Its the best one out there for the price and portability for car storage and its airline approved. Heavy grade steel with digital key combo. Goes underneath by bed or on top of my bedside table. Takes my 5seconds to access it. Once i'm off to work, i just pick it up and take it to my car like a laptop.
