I always keep my spear gun next to my bed as well as a sharp pole spear as a home protection measure.
I don't have the spear gun loaded, but I can do it very quickly if I had to. I always maintain the tip on it very sharp.
My pole spear is a 5 foot jbl also has a very sharp tip on it, and it would probably be my first choice because it is longer and just as lethal.
Its seems perfectly good to have this instead of a loaded gun in your bed room, as long as the spear gun is not loaded.
Would you or do you do this? If not, I would like to know why would it be a bad idea.
