    My S&W Wesson home defense revolvers

    1) If my alarm goes off, my first home defense is at my bedside: It's a Model 19-3 6" (fully loaded in .357 ammo):


    2) I have a gym in my basement. I can't really run up to get the 19-3 so I have the first S&W in my collection: It's the original Model 10-5 fully loaded here:


    3) I was reading the paper in the kitchen with coffee one time when the door bell rang, and my wife just opened the door. She didn't know who rang the bell. I fixed this immediately with a S&W Model 19-4 2 1/2" (with .357 rounds) firmly bolted in an holster under the kitchen table.


    4) I hang out in an upstairs office as I do today. I can't reach the 1st floor so I keep a Remington 870 12 gauge here with double 00 buckshot:




    I have to ask about your home defense plan?

    We do keep a number of firearms ready and handy around the house: Mossberg 590, on the nightstands that we both have there are revolvers, I have a Colt in .38 and he has a Smith in .38 and we keep a H&K USP in .45 in the console between the recliners. One I always come close to forgetting is there is Taurus .45 LC 5 shot snub nose tucked away in the kitchen cabinet so there are multiple guns within reach from anywhere.

    Model 60 in 357 Magnum in the nightstand. A Model 640 in the den where we are most of the time. A Colt AR and my carry gun fully loaded in the bedroom closet. My 870 with 00 Buck in the office above the garage. I pray I’m covered.

    Oh my oh my oh my! What to use! What to use! If the need ever arises... a nice little four inch 19-3 is on the nightstand. A lightly customized RIA 1911-A1 is in the drawer. If I am doing a bit of light reading, I've been known to have a nicely restored Springfield 5.9 million M-1 Garand (2/56) that has proven extremely effective on everything using plain Jane M-2 ball. Can't see any reason why it would not handle any thing on two or four legs. Recently I bought a very nice little Sig 226. It is in the range bag. Later this week if there is time it will go to the range. Given time it will very likely find its place in the rotation. Sincerely. bruce.

    Everything else is locked up during the day. Mossberg 500 joins the bedside at night.

    The 80 lb. Boxer running around my house is the real home deterrent. Nobody wants to mess with Csonka.

    I have several I can get to in various locations, not including what I usually carry.
    I keep a gun because I'm too young to die and too old to take an ass whoopin'!

    Let's say none in sight but none that a few steps can't cover and I always have my carry. Also have ammo all over to help cover those sleepers.

    SD9VE on nightstand (2nd floor). My 638 and LCP live on top of the pantry cabinet in my kitchen (1st floor). The 638 is usually in my pocket though. In the basement I have the Shield loaded and accessible. My M&P 15 Sport is the first gun in line in my gun locker and a loaded 20 round magazine is right next to it.. The big, black 100 pound German Shepherd/ Husky mix is the first to the door upon hearing a sound and is definitely going to give any unknown person second thoughts about coming through the door. His bark is extremely loud and intimidating.

    It is obvious that you guys can protect your home. What say you in the car or truck?

    I keep a locked and loaded Colt 1911 Gold Cup in my car with an extra magazine at all times:


    I had to attend a wedding for my wife's third cousin, and they had valet parking. I had to give the guy $5 to park my own car.

    Nothing here has required a permit. We have the Castle Rule to protect our property in GA, and we do so.

    I have a carry permit (GWCL) because I want one.
