Sig 220 loaded with Golden Saber 230gr HP in my nightstand and a Mossberg 835 tactical loaded with Federal Power-Shok 00 buckshot in 12 gauge.

A Glock knife and a flashlight. Illegal to have a loaded gun be accessible to anyone under 18.

Glock G22 in biometric safe across from bed, loaded with 15 rounds. First 5 are .40 cal JHP followed by 5 FMJ just incase the bad guy is a real fat sob with heavy clothing on and I need more penetration. Actually the Glock is the third line of defense, it comes after the two large dogs and the alarm system.

Always on person:
Glock 17 Gen 4 - There's not always time to grab a carbine or shotgun, but a reliable pistol is better than no gun.

If there's time:
Colt AR-15 6520 or 6720 - This is my first choice. Less chance of penetration through exterior walls with the AR-15 carbine than with the pistol or shotgun. The 55 grain FMJ bullets fragment and tumble, and I have 30 rounds in my PMAG. Light, accurate, compact, works well with optics, has more cartridges in the magazine than the pistol and shotgun combined - what's not to like?

If the AR-15 is down or my wife has the AR-15:
Remington 870 Police Magnum - I have normal 9 pellet 00 buckshot in the tube and 1 OZ slugs on the side saddle. Last choice because it requires 2 hands to operate, has the fewest cartridges ready to go, and is manual. That said, mine was super smooth from the box, patterns consistently with Remington and Winchester buckshot, has rifle sights, and has never failed me.

That's fine if someone breaks in and demands a clean floor or maybe even a game of cribbage eh? Not so much if it's a sovereigntist who's determined you're Wolfe's great, great, great grandaughter...
