I've got .40 S&W and a couple of 12 gauges handy.

The question is, will I wake up in the middle of the night lol. Hopefully my K9 does her job

Lol. I know. My worst fear is not waking up if someone broke in. Hopefully my loud snoring would make them think a crazy animal is in here.

I'm paranoid about this too plus I sleep with a loud fan. Back to the OP I have both a DAO LC9 and SAO 1911. I'm comfortable with either. Once the safety comes off and my sights are on target there are two options. The BG will lie face down til the cops arrive. Or hell lie face down til the coroner arrives. His choice. I'm comfortable with both of my handguns. I've practiced rapid accurate fire with both and can competently execute the minute actions that accompany each pistol.

I keep a Kimber Tactical Entry with a TLR light on the night stand and a Benelli M2 with OO buck next to the bed. I also have a Glock 22 on the dresser and a HK53 in a soft case next to my bed. There are extra mags in the other upstairs rooms so if I get pinned down in a room I still have ammo.

Sorry, BTB, but I gotta I call B.S. on this! The Glock trigger is just as safe as any DA revolver.

I wouldn't own a Gock if it had a manual safety. I consider manual safeties useless on any auto other than a SA.
