If it works for you, than roll with it I say! I just feel better taking corners with something shorter. I always have to "slice the pie",cut wide around the corners. Don't like breaching a room muzzle first,can turn into a gun grab situation. But again if people a proficient with a weapon, than so be it.

My XD .45 stays by the bed loaded with 230g pdx1 and a rail mounted light. If I have time I will grab my AR or my 870 out the safe.

.40 Firestar in the headboard of the bed; Ruger .357 in closet loaded with Buffalo Bore heavy ammo in case of emergency involving large, hairy critters in my back yard; Mossburg in my basement office loaded with alternating slugs and #4 buckshot.

Couldn't agree more, I know many people who's emergency weapon has only been shot a few times. I keep a glock 30 sf .45 acp on the nightstand, but I shoot it just about every weekend in training Simulations.

I have a Ruger SR9C in a holster mounted on the bed frame out of sight of any intruder. I also have a Winchester SXP Defender shotgun loaded with #4 buck shot that is close at hand.
