How do you store your bedside handgun? Looking for pistol safe recommendations. What and why you like it, maybe with pictures. The grand kids are starting to get mobile now so it’s time to take extra precautions. Thanks.

I like V-Line with Simplex locks. They are slim enough to fit in a drawer, completely analog and fairly well made. They have just enough room for a handgun and extra magazine.
All that being said my general philosophy is I have safe's etc. to keep kids, irresponsible adults and snoopy party goers etc. out. I have no illusions about them being hardened against actual theft assault.
I do have a couple electronic locks but my bedsides will only ever use analog/mechanical locks, just for my own piece of mind.
V-Line, FAS1,(who I think is a member), Fort Knox all make something along the lines of what I like.
And can I say THANK YOU for locking up your guns. I am of the mindset that kids or not there are always occasions where we might have folks in our house who are not completely vetted or not the most responsible and locking up the guns goes a LONG way towards not only keeping people safe but keeping the community out of the news.

Thanks cslinger. All of my guns are in a gun safe with this ones exception. It’s cased, but like I said, I want more peace of mind = security. I’ll give those v- lines a look. Thanks.

I’ll echo cslinger, I have a V-Line in a nightstand drawer, very easy to access and will keep sticky children’s fingers off a gun. Not much deterant to someone looking to get in, but deters innocent intentions.
Success always occurs in private, and failure in full view.

Another vote for V-Line.

The simplex lock on a V-Line is reliable and can be used in complete darkness. Most of the biometric locks are made in china and supposedly not so reliable, long-term.
