You don't exactly want a long barrel either, more for the intruder to grab. Also, if this was a one gun solution (say someone just wanted to own one gun) a 3 inch does just fine for both carry (open or concealed) or home defense.
Good reasons to have a three-inch revolver at the beside? 1. Familiarity because a person carries and/or shoots it well. 2. It fits the storage compartment (drawer) better or is easier to conceal (I personally don't want a gun in plain view next to me while I sleep). 3. It may be easier/faster to retrieve from the drawer/hiding area. 4. It's a good excuse to buy and own another gun.
Both quotes are good advice...well said TT & KyJ Rod
