Just out of curiousity. I would like to hear from all of you what kind of weapon do you hold close to your bedside incase of an emergency or other unfortunate situation such as burglers and such?

In the UK, if you tackle a burglar with a 'weapon', the prospect of being prosecuted for assault are much higher.

I don't keep any weapons under/by my bed, as I just don't feel the need to be so cautious, or paranoid in my own home. I live too far out of the way for anyone to ever come and burglarize my house, and the long, dirt road I live down is almost invisible from the main road... especially at night, where there are no street lamps to light the way. If someone were to break into my home, it would most likely have to be someone who is familar with how to get to my house, as a stranger would be very hard pressed to find me. ;)

That being said, if the rare chance happened to occur that some menacing perpetrator decided to rob my home, or worse, I keep several hunting rifles, and shot guns in my hall closest, which I could easily access in an emergency... I do not have them for protection, only for hunting purposes, but I'm sure, in a pinch, they would suffice quite well for abolishing any threat to my home, or person. :D

But come to thnik of it, I do have a couple of dumb-bells under the bed that I could probably use to throw an an intruder, well, maybe.
If I was to swing at him with one of them though, and miss, I'd be wide open...

She is a baby right now and I watch her all the time and it is locked, so I am not worried about it now. I grew up w/a father who was a policeman and guns were all over the house. As soon as she can understand, we will teach her like my father did us on the danger of guns and how they are not to be played with. I NEVER once tried to play w/them growing up and neither will she.

I wish I didn't have to keep a gun in the house but unfortunately, this world calls for us to protect ourselves. With my husband rarely @ home @ night due to work, I need something, and I am not going to depend on 911 for my first line of defense, sorry...

Mine does not reside beside my bed but in it;-) Any weapons that he may or may not have on hand, that I could use if it came to that, is not something that I would post on a public forum, not that he has anything illegal. That doesn't leave much in our state:-(
I was raised with guns as well (hunting and animal protection) and with proper training and exposure it is much safer for children than them being ignorant about guns. What if they come across a gun out of the home?

Where I live attack is a reality 24 hours a day, so on Monday evening my partner went off to defence training and I was at home as usual cooking supper and holding the fort. About an hour after he had left I was in the kitchen when I heard the door handle being turned. The dogs leapt up and ran for the door. They thought their favourite person had maybe come home early and so they went ballistic. Then they started snorting under the door and growling.

My blood ran cold. He always phones when he's on his way home, he has his own key so he wouldn't try the door handle and he wasn't due back for another hour and a half. I looked out of the kitchen window and all the security lights had gone on. There wasn't a breath of wind and I knew someone had passed by. I went to get the gun. I looked out of the window in the hall and the light was on in the garage. Someone was in the property and had got into the garage, which means they had got over a wall with spikes on top and were walking round trying doors and switching on lights.

I won't let the dogs out unless it is absolutely a matter of life and death as they are my companions and I don't want them killed or poisoned. I couldn't afford to go out and investigate as I had no idea how many were inside the property. Obviously one to look in the garage and another to try the door, so at least two. If I had to shoot at anyone I would get an immediate gun firing offence charge and if I killed someone a murder charge. These will be overturned in court but it's better not to take things that far if you can help it. So firing old Boris is not really a priority it is a last resort.

I couldn't see anyone and so I phoned my partner and the police. Amazingly, the police passed my partner on the highway going hell for leather and they arrived at our house about ten minutes before he did. There were about six black police and some four whites arriving soon after. One white man folded himself out of his squad car and was about six foot six in height. To me he looked like a god. If you ever feel that whites are going extinct, fear not, they aren't doing that where I am. All of them were fantastic. I let them in and they spread out and scoured the garden. Of course the shadow folk had run for their miserable lives when the dogs discovered them from scents coming under the door. They are past masters at getting into properties and absolute Olympic champions at getting out in a hurry without being caught. They practice all day while everyone else is at work, so one could say they were uncrowned professional career criminals.

I could never understand why the hippies insisted on referring to the police as "pigs". The logic of the mind of the anarchist escapes me.

They found no one, told me to call immeditaley I was worried again and laughing and joking among themselves (it is a complete left wing lie that people in South Africa hate one another) they all got back into their chariots and raced off to their next assignment, many of which came through on the radio the whole time they were with me.

Bless all policefolk great and small, bless their dedication, their courage, their underpaid excellence and their willingness to still become police in a world that increasingly tries to stop them from doing their job. The first words out of the uniformed black man who rang my gate bell was "Are you all right, ma-am?" Bless them all.

They had a couple of barking eager German Shepherds in the back of the huge white guy's car. These, too, often die in the line of duty. Bless the furry ones as well. :thumbsup

Thank you. We have each in our street and everywhere else come to think of it had these experiences and they continue endlessly. I shot a hole in the kitchen cupboard a few years back and nearly put a bullet through my foot while covering my partner during an actual attempted break in in our house. They managed to get the door open at 2 in the morning but I heard them and woke the dogs (a different pair then, now both gone to Valhalla) and the invaders fled. If I hadn't woken up they would have got inside. They have invaded all our neighbours and some have been totally ripped off while asleep. One of our friends was attacked in her driveway a week or two ago and they demanded her wedding rings. She couldn't get them off and apparently they tried to bite off her fingers. :eek

You won't believe how frequent this all this. They killed my cousin last year, they have killed my partner's uncle and they nearly raped one of our friend's elderly mother. The father died soon afterwards from the shock of trying to defend his wife. He was in his eighties at the time. But that is just part of daily life here. How the police manage with limited resources and low pay is a near miracle. The number of policemen here who have seen such horrific things they are suffering from post traumatic stress disorder is very high. Some can no longer function and have had to give up the job. You know, things like opening the boot of a car and finding a person in there cut into pieces, or going to a farm and discovering an entire family massacred, including the baby. The brutality of these scenes is mindbending. I suppose it is no surprise that I cannot watch horror movies. Life here tends to be too full of it for me to be able to enjoy it happening to someone else, even in a fictional context.

But, hey, we are all incurable optimists. Our ability to motivate ourselves to go into business, find ways round affirmative action and deal with horrific crimes is our badge of survival. We just keep reinventing ourselves after every setback. The whole place is buzzing with entrepreneurial spirit 24 hours a day. I suppose we are some sort of unusual phenomenon, under the circumstances, but that is how it's always been here. "Boer maak 'n plan" is the way the Afrikaners refer to it.

Never say die. It might be just as the dawn is breaking. Always anticipate a new beginning. No matter what. Keep flying the flag of yourself.:viking1

A knife and baton for Brisbane areas if neccessary

I suggest for those on the walk in Sydney get a decent knife you can hide and a flex-out baton but for women pepper spray does the works

I would never hide a weapon in the house if my children were around. Never. :thumbsdow


We don't hide weapons from our children. They know right where they are. How they are used. What they are used for. What to do if they see one out of place, and what to do if someone touches or picks one up.

I used to keep a 12 gauge single shot by the bed as we had raccoons getting into the chicken coop. I put it back in the case last year. My wife has a couple of pistols on her side on the bed. Unloaded and in cases.

i do not keep a weapon handy at night. We do have them in the house if we feel it would be best to start doing so.

The dogs will give notice of intruders.

I have hidden weapons in every room of the house, all at strategically good points. In my bedroom i sleep with a big ass knife+2 throwing knifes at the top of my bed (in a little hidden compartment) so i can reach it by grabbing after it below my pillow (if he watches me, or if i act still sleeping). If i push my bedpost down and turn it 90 degrees i have it in my hand and its a 1 meter club with an ideal handle. Who doesnt know that would never suspect it ^^

In other parts of the house also parts of the furniture are, with one special grip, a ready to use weapon, some even with a blade ^^ A friend of mine is cabinet-maker/carpenter and has his own turning lathe. With that we made a lot of little gadgets like that (mostlky for the fun of it, and because it felt so james bond ^^). Usually you need to know exactly how they work, to remove them. They are neatly integrated into those pieces of furniture. The worst that can happen is your own weapon used against you (and that happens more often then you think). Thats why i didnt want the old baseball bat at the wall. I want weapond ONLY i can use

Old boy scout motto says always be prepared. Crime is on the rise do to the recent economic down turn. A well armed citizen is not a victim. Most people feel they can call the police, but by the time they arrive they just fill out the report of your demise.

Not sure why law enforcement went to the 9mm, it does not seem to have the stopping power of a .45 .

Actually a shotgun is less clumsy, all you have to is point when it is loaded with 00 buck. Not only that it also doubles as a non-lethal weapon. One quick butt stroke and it will knock somebody down and out.

An AR with a light and iron sights
A Remington 870 Marine Mag 12 Ga.
A Glock 17 and the lil Keltec in the pic was traded in on a Walther PPS.
Also a few assorted knives, flashlights and everyone has body armor.

That's what's out of the safe.

the lil Keltec in the pic was traded in on a Walther PPS.


Curious why would you do that?

I had a Keltec just like the one you pictured and it did not carry well, jammed from time to time and was just not a good shooter. As a note I keep all of my firearms in top shape and clean and use good ammo, and I shoot a lot so it was not user error and somebody else I know had the same problem with the same model. I traded it for a hunting crossbow and I am yet to hunt with it yet so, I don't know if I made a good trade.

When carrying a firearm, even as a back up piece it has to work flawlessly every time and you must know it and have it become an extension of your arm. For personal protection I will always go for a quality American made revolver usually and older Smith & Wesson with pinned and recessed barrel. If you want small get a J frame model in .38 Special. Much more stopping power and better energy transfer than a 9mm. I don't need more than 5 or 6 shots to defend myself and I would trade reliability for mag capacity any day.

btw I like the AR, good versatile weapons and all kind of accessories available. :thumbup

Now, back on topic

I no longer keep a 870 pump by my bed, I now have a double barrel 10 gauge which I cut down to 20" to keep it legal, I decided I don't want to warn anybody with a slide action of a pump gun. ;) If a bigger problem exist I have class 3 firepower close at hand.

My Keltec never jammed on me, not even once. However it was a .32 pocket pistol and I traded it in on a single stack 9mm of better quality that fit in the same pocket. I have a bit more confidence in a 9mm than I do a .32 ACP. In the long term Walthers generally outlive Keltecs after the rd count starts hitting a couple thousand rds.

While the Walther PPS M1 still fits in a Desantis pocket holster in my front pocket, the grip is a bit larger and easier to grab onto when drawing. This is the first time I shot it.

So all in all I'm happy with my trade.

Depends upon what I carried that day, but usually the HK USP9 Compact. It could be one of a dozen different makes and models.

Nothing.

Should I?

House attacks are still very rare in Finland.

None, but I recently placed a large kitchen's knife on the window's board ,
since there is occassionally trouble sounding in the staircase / walkway .

At former times , I would have stepped outside , to argue with the people ,
but I have lost any will to argue anymore , since in case of trouble ,
I as a native feel like being in disadvantage in courts afterwards .
