    Same. Generally speaking, if it's not in my hands, it's not chambered.

    Opposite.

    But none of my bedside guns are striker-fired, and the XO's G19 wears a ZAK.

    Yes, makes sense.

    I am pretty strict on long guns being unchambered if they are out of my hands. Pistols too but with two exceptions - the glock in the holster bolted to my bed and circumstances that call for a DA pistol sans holster.

    When Im asleep, my Glock is always chambered, BUT... it sits in a holster that’s screwed to a board wedged between the boxspring and mattress. Before that, it sat on my nightstand with a Zach covering the trigger. The Zach was tied to the nightstand leg with paracord so I could “draw” the pistol with one hand. I still use the bedside Zach method when I travel.

    If I didn’t have a way of covering the trigger, I wouldn’t leave it chambered. Leaving the trigger of a striker-fired weapon exposed is just asking for trouble, especially if you’re grabbing for it half-awake and disoriented. Once I put together a dedicated bedside Glock, it will likely have a safety.

    Like Brent, all my long guns always have an empty chamber unless they’re in my hands.

    My long guns are "Cruiser Carry" dry fired on an empty chamber.
