I find a little humor in the fact that the member "Pellet Gun" started this thread No offense meant OP.
To stay on track If I have a firearm with me I would hang it off the ridgeline in the head end of hammock. I like the ridgeline because I can slide it behind my head to hide it while sleeping.
Enjoy and have fun with your family, before they have fun without you

i keep my kimber in the ENO pouch that hangs from the hammock, perfect place
1911 .45 acp, under my pillow. I do want a better place. I might put a soft holster on the side of my BMBH someday.
Most times I carry a Ruger P90. I want my gun close at hand if I every need it. With that in mind I have tried suspending it from from the ridge line in a holster. But I kept banging my head and also don't like the idea of it being visible to prying eyes. A peak bag didn't work out either because it also banged my head occasionally plus it was some what clumsy to retrieve the gun if needed. Since I am a back and side sleeper my solution is to stow it in a very ultralight fanny type pack around my waist. The pouch is slid around to the front. It doesn't bother me sleeping and if I were to need my gun I can draw it with very little movement.
This would be a good mod for 2QZQ, the #45.
