Thread: What is beside your bed?

  1. #1

    Default What is beside your bed?

    I keep a Glock 19 on one side with a Malkoff MD4 WC V6 or Surefire P3X. On the other side of the bed I keep a AR-15 with a Surefire 600 lumen light. Also, the new addition is an Olight sitting on top of the outlet, I don't want to mount the L-Dock yet.

    Some books and a lamp. Some books are hard covers for self defense.

    It used to be my nightstand, but my flashlight collection and other cool stuff would no longer fit on my nightstand so I move my nightstand and placed a standard size coffee table next to my bed. On it Iíve got a few various sundry and assorted high-powered flashlights and other stuff.
    For less performance, use smaller flashlights; and for most performance, use largest flashlights.

    I may have other stuff by my bed, but as far as lights at the moment I have two Rigid Industries Halo's, my PD36R, and an Olight H2R.

    Same as itís been for many years, tail stands right next to my CPAP. Trit bezel helps me see it at night, nice low low if I want to light up the room just a little bit.

    This is the light that got me hooked, hard to beat the durability, UI or simplicity of design. Itís still fantastic, emitter upgrade of course, and added a diffuser, but thatís it.

    Top dresser drawer a Malkoff HCRI in a VME head on a two flats Surefire E2e body with a Z57 clicky, and a Surefire M6 in a belt holster with beam cover, HOLA and a spare battery carrier in case a rapid reload is needed. Also have a Surefire A2 with an Onion Ring with red LED's installed and two IMR16340's in a belt pouch, and a Brinkmann Maxfire with a Lumen's Factory SR-9 and two IMR16340's. Those are some my main go too's if I hear a bump in the night, but I have a cabinet with about 60 lights in it next to that, and there's a bunch of other lights in the dresser and a lot of other places, so my options are pretty open. I have a Streamlight HID Litebox in the closet.

    I always have a Malkoff on my stand.either a 2XAA or my MD1 loaded with a M60N or a MD3 with M91 HI/LO. because I have kids running around all day i canít really keep a gun by me but the 20 gauge is safe in the closet where I can get it in under 30 seconds. My 3 Great Danes who sleep in the living room will insure I have at least that much time to get to it😁
    If i had one day left to live i would want to be at my workplace.Because every day is like a frickin eternity.

Itís doesnít have to be an attack dog just a dog. Criminals are not going to mess with a barking dog and will pass on your house.

    Using a flashlight as a defensive "weapon" has always been a controversial topic. But things are changing, as some of the lights we are getting now are unbelievably powerful. Getting my Acebeam K75 has changed my way of thinking on this subject. Conducing a scenario where I tried approaching my brother at night, with him having the K75 on Turbo was a real eye opener (or closer for that matter).

    6300 lumens of 1.5 million candela in a eye scorching hotspot so intense it's unreal, and a quick, easy, and reliable way of instantly getting Turbo mode at any point, has made the K75 my bedside light. Having a dim, 2 lumen mode for trips to the bathroom at night is the cherry on top.

    Of course, I would not trust defending my family to only a flashlight, and I don't recommend you do either. That's where the customized Glock 21/Benelli Supernova comes in.

    But make no mistake, the K75 most certainly instills much confidence for those bump in the night type times!

    My dog is beside my bed while I sleep. Slip on shoes in case I have to move about. In winter a jacket in case the house catches fire or other reason to suddenly go outside.
    A blinder light and a 2am nature call flashlight accompany those other items. And something to compliment the blinder light just in case somebody is in my house besides family, friends, and once a year Santa Clause.

    THREE Great Danes? Sounds awesome. People donít realize what lovely dogs that breed is, and great with kids. Gentle giants. Would love to see a pic.

    Just a Zebralight programmed to all moonlight modes. If I had to keep anything else, I'd move.

    Two lights:

    FW3A 4000K Neutral 95+ CRI locked out with a Nitecore 25.4mm diffuser - so momentary moonlight is available to shine on the analog alarm clock to see the time.

    Fenix PD35 set on high.

    We just picked up a rescue and she has supersonic hearing. My neighbor came over the other day and my dog started barking when he was barley halfway across the courtyard.

    That and I have an HDS Rotary with Trit Bezel (easy to spot) and an MD1.5 with an M361.
