    I think a gun should be hidden from a cursory glance. I also think there are better solutions than just throwing it on the night stand, at least at home.

    I use a GCode holster. The RTI wheel is installed on the bed. The holster is QD and can be moved to another location as needed (vehicle, office, belt, whatever). It's easy, modular, and reasonable $.

    There are legitimate reasons for not wanting the gun sitting out in plain sight on the headboard/night stand. Not as many if it's a holster that gets put on every morning and is only there during the sleep period.

    But hey, affairs of the heart are not always amenable to logic, and for some familiarity brings comfort.

    Edited to add:
    Also, depending on what size your pistol is, you might be able to find a "Valet" box or tray that you can drop it in every night.

    This is entirely the opposite of what you want, but it's kinda cool:

    Do any of you recommending Tactical Walls actually have any? I do. I find it's OK, but it's EXTREMELY SLOW to access.

    I was more leaning toward the lamp and issue box rather than the shelves or mirrors.

    I used to keep one pistol in a cigar box. It could sit out in plain view and no one would notice it. I moved away from the idea, but it's still viable for some purposes.

    A few key clarifications...Some of these aren't topical, but with the direction this thread took it has to be replied.

    - She's pro-gun and from a conservative household, but she was never trained in handling firearms directly.
    - She supports my training and preparations, accepts my training time and gym time as a built-in element of my lifestyle. She goes out with me and my training partners after class or workouts, she likes how dedicated and humble my crew is.
    - I've spent quite a few nights after seminars and classes running through the bullet points of the day, with her taking an active interest and asking for introductory training in a few instances. She's currently running through basic Kali with me, along with Urban Combatives standby techniques for those who know Lee Morrison's system.
    - She's being taught to strip my pistols and AR, how to handle firearms she comes across, and what makes them work to better understand the politics and headlines going on.
    - We do go to the range, she's mostly shooting my .22 converstion but she's determined to work up to grouping with 9mm. To be fair, the reloads I buy are a bit hot, I may need to fix that.
    - I've run her through some scenarios of how we will be handling some what-ifs, such as her calling 911 while I cover the door, etc.
    - It is indeed my house, and stays my house when she stays over. When I asked if she was okay with the holstered Glock sitting on a table next to the bed, she thought it over and said maybe just keeping it in a drawer or under something would be better. She still sees guns as a very serious responsibility which should be handled gently with Boy Scout mindset, she felt that it may stand out too much if we were relaxing in bed. She is all for it being there, but she felt it would be odd to set her drink next to it while we're watching a movie. More importantly, intimacy with a loaded gun a couple feet away primed with a light and a reload next to it...Ever have that conversation about the dog watching you have sex? That's more the tone she used for the Glock 17 watching us. In her words, 'Do something James Bond with it, that'd be cool.' She texted me the tissue box cover by Tactical Walls the next day, but I measured it out and it can only fit a Glock 19 at the largest.

    Sign your roommate up for SI’s CRG-1 (maybe host the class), then plan out taking -2 thru -5 as a team. What’s your AO?

    Sounds like she’s got some warrior lurkin’ just below the surface and is trainable.

    Might I suggest these. We have one of these for my wife's nightstand. It's way faster to access, and fits a G17. Unfortunately, the RMR'd version does not fit.

    Unfortunately, I'm up in Illinois. I've been South to do carbine with Steve Collins, did not make it past the wait list for Gabe's last class in Columbus.
