being 14 i cannot yet fufil the duties of protecting my family.
although if i had to my shotgun is in the closet and i know where i keep a box of shells

P.S. do you sleep with it underneath your pillow?

I've got my 5906 loaded with 115 gr. 9mm FMJ. I have the money but I'm just not sure how it would feed hollowpoints, and it would be a bit costly to test them out. I have other things to spend/save for. I do prefer Remington Golden Saber ammunition from other guns I've fired it through though.

@ Zulu, I don't sleep with mine under my pillow, as I think that's kind of a silly place to put it, and I frequently reach under my pillow when trying to sleep. I do however have a friend who keeps his Jericho 941 under his pillow at all times.......

Under the pillow? That's got to be uncomfortable

I think the bedstand would be more confortable safer and easier to reach.

Nothing, Im 19 and the legal age is 21, but im thinking about a Bersa Thunder and a Maverick (or Spas 12, but its a little expensive).

No, for the sole reason of I like having a face in the "not accidentally shot off" variety

I think the night stand is definitely the way to go. I don't know anybody who sleeps with their pistol under their pillow.

My night stand pistol is a SIG 226 loaded with 115 grain Speer GoldDot rounds. I also have a Mossberg 500 Mariner in my closet, though I rarely load that one or keep it out for defense.

Makes me wish I had a nightstand. Until I can get my shotty out of the safe I'll just have to stick to my "stab people until I can get to my closet" plan

If your gun stays in the safe, then by definition, it's pretty much not a home defense weapon.
