Nightstand set up
1st of all, thank you for your very helpful inputs on GT.

I have a toddler at home so all my firearms are locked except one on me.

Under the nightstand, there is a quick access safe (Gunvault GV2000S).
I put my EDC G30 (holstered in a Comp-Tac Infidel in condition 1) every might.

I recently purchased an used Gen4 G21. I plant to have it in the same safe (with G30) once I feed enough rounds through. I have the Infidel holster for it.

For a nightstand gun, should it be holstered?

Which one (G21 or G30) should be the primary nightstand gun?

Should it be in condition 1 (I am thinking "yes")?

How many magazines should be in the safe?

I am thinking that G21 to be the nightstand duty on the more accessible top shelf of the safe.

I would appriceate your advice.

If it goes in the safe holstered, there's a good chance the holster will come out with the gun. Removing it with your other hand will slow you down and is likely to cross the hand.

I would personally keep it fully loaded, with one in the chamber. Having to access the safe is slowing you down already. Which gun you put in there will depend on the size of the interior of the safe, and the size of your hand. Practice with the unloaded pistol and see which "draws cleaner" from the safe.

Spare magazines in that small space may get in the way of a safe draw. Since the magazines are relatively harmless by themselves, you might want to leave them elsewhere.

Best of luck,
