I would use the 9mm. But if I had to pick one that i really want, it would be a pump 12ga with a light. The shortest one I could buy to.

JimRau^^^^That is why I have a monitored alarm system.

Well I can tell you that more than one of the people who had this happen to them said the same thing many of you are saying!!!
To each his own! I refuse to rely on anything other than my knowledge and my ability! There is NO alarm system that is perfect, and no one ALWAYS wakes up every time the dogs bark. Dogs are know to be bribed into being quit.
All I am doing is giving you all some of the lessons I have learned over the years and I teach in my Basic Armed Self Defense Classes.
Like I said, to each his own!

While funny, it does suggest confrontations are multiple in nature, which is often the case. One guy might break into your house armed with only a screwdriver as a pry bar, or it could be a car load of gang members with guns and knives, all druged up and pissed.

Good fortunes to you and your 8 rounds when MS-13 breaks into your house and you have that single stack mag.

I went with a Glock 20 with 1st gen non drop free mags, that hold 16, with plus 2 extensions. My holster holds an extra mag, plus I have three mags near by. I keep one in the pipe and one emergency round in the grip hole. That adds up to 38 rounds of 10mm on me, and 54 more rounds close by and ready. 5 ARs are in the safe, loaded and ready along with Joe Biden's shotguns.
Not to worried about multiple intruders, ive got a pump shotgun within 3 feet of the bed if my .45 isnt enough, not to mention my AR with 5 fully loaded 30 round mags close by.

I not gonna buy a seperate pistol just for my nightstand, if my 1911 isnt good enough for that then isnt good enough for daily carry outside the home.

A shotgun can lean against your nightstand. A good old mossberg 500/590 is the ticket. An intruder is not going to survive nine .32s at center mass. Use a stock. A pistol grip is not easy to use when you are half asleep. Face smack!

I stash my carry guns around the house at night for last ditch. In the house I have a S&W .44 Special Wheelgun with Glasers because of wall penetration fears, and a Kel Tec KSG in spring clips on the bed rail loaded with frag shot.

Get a really "Big" drawer and fill it with Machine Pistols. You never know how many bandits may show up at one time.

1. Do you want the PPD visible to them on the night stand or anywhere else they would have immediate access to it while you are asleep???????
2. If it is a drawer in the night stand or dresser you can not get to it with out alerting the 'criminal' of your actions!
The PPD should be concealed on the side of bed between the bedding or any where you can reach it without alerting the 'criminal' of your actions.
Jim,
You've got some good advice here.
Thanks
