What do you do with your side arm while you are sleeping in your hammock while camping?

If I am in my DreamHammock Thunderbird, I put it in the Peak Shelf. If not i hang it in a holster off my ridgeline.

This.
I understood at a very early age that in nature, I felt everything I should feel in church but never did. Walking in the woods, I felt in touch with the universe and with the spirit of the universe.

I made a triangular bag for the ridgeline, point down with an opening on the side so the handgun can hang upside down, barrel up and away at a 45degree angle. Used a piece of shockcord from the bag to the foot end of the hammock so if I grab the gun and pull it the bag snaps away. It takes a little practice to get it out quickly but it hangs securely with the barrel in a safe position, which was my number one concern. I don't want a gun shifting position when I'm asleep.

In my Ridgerunner, I put it in the indentation in my hammock above my head because I'm just crazy like that. In my Blackbied, I put it in the shelf segregated from my other stuff. Always in a holster of course.

Interesting. Would like to see photos of this...

I have some, for some reason I can no longer post photos from my phone or ipad. The attachments portion of the menu is gone.....

attachments are disabled because when you attach something it uses my server space/bandwidth. I recommend getting a dropbox account or similar photo hosting arrangement.
