What's your nightstand gun?

I prefer 1911's and revolvers, but the Bersa Thunders are nice DA/SA pistols for the money. I have one in 9mm that I like very well.
However for a nightstand gun it's a 1911
90% of the time

The sights on the P220 are called Advantage Tactical Sights. The link is below. They acquire really fast and are easy for me to see with old eyes. They are fully adjustable with elevation adjustment being shims to raise and lower the front sight. You get 5 different colors inserts both front and rear. I prefer the green rear and the orange front.
They do take some getting used to but worth it. I have mine set for POI at the top of the pyramid. They do have great customer support. This P220 would shoot 2” low with the front at the lowest. This was not true for the Glock 21, it’s sight was in the middle shim. So I called the company and asked if that was common with P220. They said “that was the same gun that the owner of the company used, please hold while I get him”. Told him the story and he said that it is not a common thing. But he would grind down a front and send it to me. Which 1 week later arrived with a Zero invoice.
Anyway, with my eyes, the tradeoff I found were they are great out to 20 yards, after that, groups will grow slightly. Midway also sells them.
