    Where to put pistol after getting long gun?

    I'll bet most of us sleep with loose or no clothes on.

    The handgun is handy and quickest to access for most of us. But after we wake and get an OODA loop started we probably want a long gun in our hands if it really seems like we're going to need a gun.

    So you get to your long gun and pick it up. What do you with your hand gun?

    Do you have an inconspicuous place to leave it? Give it to a family member? (Who is also probably half asleep) Do you put it down, put on pants, a holster, put pistol in holster then pick up long gun? Or do you grab the long gun first and skip the pistol?

    Rifle, skip pistol if its a choice. In real life, get whatever is closer and excecute plan.

    If I die because I had to transition after 30 rounds during a home invasion, but didnt have my pistol, it was just my time.

    My rifle is right beside my pistol. Unless someone is coming through the bedroom door at the second I wake up, there is no disadvantage for me to take extra second or two to get the rifle up. That being said, my Ronin belt (which is easily accessed in the next room) can be thrown around most of my clothing and wonít move too much as long as Iím not running.

    I donít really buy into the ďuse a pistol to fight to your long gunĒ thing. I donít see having a running gunfight through my house as a realistic scenario, and if I do, all threat problems will be solved prior to opening my safe, and cops enroute. Whatever gun I grab on my way out the bed is what Iíve got. That said, when a rifle is not next to my bed, a M9A1 is in one of my competition rigs on the floor next to my bed, so I can grab and go with that. Along with pants and a pair of shoes, for investigating outdoor noises.

    You should have you’re OODA loop going before you grab any firearm.
    AQ planned for years and sent their A team to carry out the attacks, and on Flight 93 they were thwarted by a pick-up team made up of United Frequent Fliers. Many people look at 9/11 and wonder how we can stop an enemy like that. I look at FL93 and wonder, "How can we lose?". -- FromMyColdDeadHand

    Honestly, though, I suppose I'd just fight with whatever weapon was most at hand at the time, and I'd probably just go straight to the rifle if that was at all an option (i.e. put it by the bed).

    If I DID have a handgun and I DID need to grab a rifle, I'd just dump the handgun where the rifle was hiding and drive on.
