What auto occupies your nightstand?

I just went with a Glock 21 long ago; 12 rounds of .45. After that it's time for negotiations if more is needed. At least that will buy me enough time to get to my Bushmaster.

Nothing dedicated to the night stand. What ever I have on me when I go to bed.
There is however a Streamlight Scorpion flashlight dedicated to the nightstand.

My nightstand gun varies depending on what I've had to the range.

Currently it's an S&W 042 snubnose.

Recently it was my S&W 4506.

Generally, though, it's a revolver.



And, I think I'm going to move this to general because while it started off asking about autos, a lot of responses are about other firearms.

Not on the night stand, but in a holster clipped on the bed rail, is a Walther P-38

I'm another who keeps his EDC next to the bed. In my case it is a Glock 26, with a 12-round spare mag to its left and a decent flashlight to the left of that. FWIW, I lay everything out the same at home, in hotel rooms, wherever, so that I can lay my hands right on them.

And my wife has her own pistol, and there are other arms that can be brought into play pretty quickly if a fight got prolonged for some reason. The G26 is pretty good starter kit, though.

SIG P-250C chambered in .40 cal. It also has a StreamLight TLR-1 HL flashlight mounted on it.

I also have a Surefire Back-Up flashlight lying next to it in case I prefer a hand-held light.

A Cougar in 9mm with 15 rounds of hollow point. I like the Cougar because it feels and runs exactly like my 92FS but it is a little more compact.
