home defense

  1. MPX bedside / nightstand safe

    SIG Sauer Rifles
    I'd like to move my MPX-K to my bedside for home defense. I have a 320rx now in a little Vaultek tucked neatly in a sliding nightstand drawer. My constraints are: Wife doesn't want a big ugly safe in the room (think pottery barn magazine for bedroom layout) I have 6 year old son that is a...
  2. Silencer for home defense / self defense

    I have a SS suppressor (awaiting paperwork/stamp) for a full-size .45 that I plan to use for home/ self defense. As a nightstand gun, is a suppressor an advantage as far as saving hearing in an indoor environment- or a liability as far as over-readiness/ overeager indication, etc.? Would it be a...
  3. Recommendations for home defense

    My wife and I each own a P365 for carry. We also keep them on our nightstands for home defense. However, things being what they are today we are looking into either a full-size handgun and/or a rifle for home defense. We are both retired in our late 60s on a limited income so we are looking for...

  6. Confession: wife doesn't know about sigs

    SIG Sauer Pistols
    So I joined this site about 3 days ago but have been lurking for a while. I've always been very pro gun and my wife has been on the fence to against it so we never had a gun in the house. A couple of months ago someone broke into our place (no one was home) and robbed us of some items and her...
  7. Mag spring wear a concern?

    SIG Sauer Pistols
    I have my p226 9mm loaded and ready in my gun vault for home defense along with an extra mag. My concern is my magazine springs. How often should I rotate my mags so they last?
  8. My Little Backup Kit!

    I have two combo lock boxes. One I keep in the bedroom upstairs and it holds our main home defense pistol, a P226R 9mm with a Surefire tac light attached. Downstairs I keep this (pictured below). My wife and I have put in more hours of practice with this little monster and it's now our official...
