Currently, it is my Springfield XD 4" in .40S&W with 180gr Ferderal HST's (my EDC weapon). However this will be getting upgraded to a S&W Governor with Federal .410 Handgun 000 Buckshot for nightstand duty as soon as it comes off layaway.

You might want to rethink that. Not only have the .410 shot shells been known to cause reliability issues in the Governor and Judge, they really aren't well suited as a self defense round compared to conventional pistol calibers. If you want to shoot 000 buckshot, use a shotgun.

If you make the mistake of using regular shotshells in a Judge or Governor, you may indeed have reliability and performance issues. I've seen where people have had problems with the shells jamming in the cylinder and blocking rotation. However, the newer loads created for use in the .410 revolvers are a different story. The current defensive loads are nasty, nasty stuff at across-the-room distances.

Here are links to a couple of decent reviews where the updated ammo is used:

Kimber Stainless II with two extra mags, one step past that over the door is an AR with a 20 round mag (because with a 30 rnd mag the bedroom door doesn't close thats why).

Wife's night stand = Walther PK380 (2 clips)

My night stand = Glock 22 Gen 4 (40 cal. 2 clips)

If that doesn't get the job done. Then the Ka-Bar Mark 1 Knife in the night stand is for the up close work.

XD-M 3.8 .45ACP. Similar ergo and same controls as my XD-S .45 EDC, but has more capacity since I don't lug it around all day.

Flavor of the day usually does nightstand duty too.

More nights than not it's the SR40c.

Ruger P89DC with two spare mags, all filled with Federal HST 124gr. If 46 rounds isn't enough I'm a goner anyways.
