Night Stand Gun

Glock 17 with a Crimson Trace Lightguard, night sights, and +2 mag extender for 19+1. I have this in a bed holster. Loaded with Buffalo Bore 115gr +P bullets until I can get my hands on some Federal HST 124gr +P.

Bellevance, beautiful grips on that fine old warhorse.

For me,

CZ P-09 Duty with Nebo Picatinney light. The clock radio is considerably older than the gun.

I keep several ready revolvers around the house. Yet my nightstand gun is my 2/12" M-66, loaded with Buffalo Bore 38/44 + P ammo. Next to it is my Mini-Maglight and two sped strips, one of which is loaded with six extra rounds of Buffalo Bore ammo. The other sped strip is loaded with "full tilt" .357 Magnum ammo.

SA Custom 45, Condition One, sits in the nightstand. A 12 ga. Rem Tactical, with 7 shot extension, is two steps away next to a dresser. I'm like Old Bear - I keep pistols or revolvers close at hand througout the house. I'm good.

Either my Glock 19 with 16+1, 17, 17, 17, and 33 loaded mags of Winchester Ranger T's 127gr +p+ alone. Or that and my Rock River AR-15 with 6-7 mags accessible.

Whatever the carry of.......

.........the day is. Could be any one of three. FEG Hi Power, Astra A70 or a Sig 232. The wife has a Ruger Security Six on her side. Those are there as deterrents until we get to the Saiga 410 bullpup.

I perfer to use a gun I dont mind handing over to the cops after it has been used and for that I use a Glock. I would hate to use a special gun that may sit in a evidence locker for months with fluids on it not being cleaned and getting rusted and a catalog number ground into it with an electric pencil. I do keep a Mossberg 500 nearby and a revolver in the other end of the house just in case.

...has anyone made the effort counting the number of entries for the most popular (HANDguns at least), say: Glock, S&W, Beretta, Ruger, Taurus, XP, 1911s...?

I'd say it's Glocks and 1911s combined as frontrunners, maybe S&W (semis and revolvers combined...)?

I'll catch slack for this, but a hi point .45acp. I've never had a single issue with it and if it jams its heavy enough to beat the hell out of someone.

Sig 239 9MM, Hornady Critical Defense ammo, de-cocked, round in the chamber. 1st shot double action.

Just wanted to add that my wife also has ready access to her bedroom gun, a SIG 380, again Critical Defense ammo. If a bad guy comes into your bedroom he will intend to disable you first, you are his primary threat. Given his focus on you, I'm a strong believer in having a wife proficient with at least one handgun. The bad guy is less likely to expect your wife or partner to come up out of that bed with Roscoe in hand.
