The Backup: bedside shotgun caddy

This looks like another one of those "darnit why didn't I come up with that" ideas.

I suppose one could use a rifle as well.

With my luck I would fall out of bed and get my underwear waistband stuck on the end of the "hook" holding the shotgun in place, giving me the worst wedgie ever. I don't wanna wake up that way.

I keep a SXS 12 ga. 'coach gun' leaned in the corner near my bed. a Makarov velcroed to bedpost. and my Marlin .45 Camp w/10 rd mag stoked with +P HP's hanging on the wall hooks. I live off the pavement 400 ft and I'm 'skeered of the dark'.

That looks like a good idea. I use my Makarov/PA-63 holster with the flap tucked under the top mattress.

If you have a shotgun in your room, I would recommend getting one! I've had mine since May and love it. It doesn't bang my shin or anything like that, it sits very close to the matress and when I have my comforter on correctly, you can't even tell that it's there!

.......and thats why he's called the "tactical genius",....LOL,....seriously though, I agree, it seems to me like I'd have problems with it, mine just lays under the bed or in the corner, since I don't have kids around to worry about anymore.

seems like a good product but I have my SXS 12ga leaned in near corner by my bed right by the nite lite. I keep my Makarov in a spare holster velcroed to bedpost within easy reach.

I take it your house is not the one on the block to rob. I keep my short, tactical 1100 loaded (7 rounds in the mag, 6 on the stock, 6 on the left side of the action, and a 25 round belt) and ready to go in the corner behind some coats on the wall. A K-Bar and light hang on my headboard and if I need more than that, oh well. At least I put up a fight.

You were saying that it would trip you up when you get out of bed, but it sits really flush to your bed. It's not bulky like your thinking!

So, I've got a question for those who've had it for awhile now.

Does the gun get really dusty? That's my biggest concern with this thing, other than it doesn't seem to lock in any way.

I made my own out of steel rod, and covered the hook area with hockey stick tape. It fits really snug to the bed, and I don't have any issues running into it. My 870 does get dusty, but its not really a big deal.

No, it doesn't get dusty because it is hidden during the day by your comforter

I have The Back-Up shotgun mount and love it.. it's durable and it doesn't require any screws/bolts and my gun doesn't get scratched/dinged up..

If you are looking for a shotgun mount for your bed must see....

With it in place your are either ready to hunt or ready to protect -- dust free since it is close to the bed and the action there.

It's a cute idea, but I can make my own.

I HATE it when any business says that Alaska is too far away and they can't ship there, they need to charge twice as much to ship or it's not part of the US (that one always cracks me up). Why should I have to contact them??? Why don't they just come out and say what they need to in the add?

The part about having Alaskan and Canadian customers contact them shut me off to the product.

Funny thing is many businesses don't think twice about shipping to Hawaii, but jack the cost for Alaska.

I have a simple solution for the item, the floor and a wall. Set the butt on the floor, lean the muzzle against the wall. Gravity will do the rest.

Sorry, having to contact them because I live in Alaska is an insult.

Funny thing is they (businesses) don't think twice about shipping to Hawaii.

Anyhow, I have kids in the house so leaving the guns locked up is a good idea. If i really wanted to have something ready to go for the bad guys I'd just leave it leaning against the night stand.
I think they ship to the "lower 48" for free and every where else for a cost including Alaska and Hawaii -- I'd say the distance would change the cost to AK and HI. With regards to the bedside idea, in AK I don't imagine home invasion is a big problem so you are probably spot on -- leaning works. For folks like me in Atlanta, GA we need to be ready to hunt or ready to protect in a second .

In the lower 48 people need to be packing. 2nd Amendment, Baby: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e3GXYAzh8EQ
