    Started looking for a piece to have a night stand gun, i currently have a px4 sub compact in 9mm which is a great piece and works for conceal carry but im thinking of something a little bigger for a home gun. Share what you have as your night stand weapon of choice/ share suggestions. going to go look at a xdm 40 tomorrow

    I use the same gun I carry, but it is pretty large. Sig p229 with surefire x300, tritium night sights, and the 17+1rd magazine.

    Remington 870 Police Magnum Vang Comp...

    Only point of a handgun is to fight your way to the long gun you never should have set down in the first place...

    I know you said something bigger than 9mm, but I like my Smith & Wesson .38 special for my night stand gun. No cocking, safety ,or jamming. Try a .357 or any shotgun!

    fair enough. In that case, there's generally a S&W 649 no dash .38 spc. and a S&W 1911 in .45ACP with a couple of flashlights within reach as well...

    A friend of mine uses a Taurus Judge for his in-home gun. I have a Ruger SR9c and a Remington 870 Tactical. But, that's just me :)

    Urr looking for a 44 mag with a 8 1/2" barrel. Look into Taurus or Rossie if urr on a buget if not look into S&W or Colt. As for the previous post I tried putting the 12 guage on the night stand and it wouldn't fit.............but check under my bed:)

    Unless you get an H&K Mark 23. It's an offensive handgun. H&K said so.

    Just trying to go for something practical, i love revolvers but hate that after 5 or 6 rounds your out and have to go running for the next gun, xdm 40 holds 16 +1 but im not generally a fan of the glock style guns and it would be nice if it was something i could get the wife to use.

    Wish i could afford one of these

    My daily carry XD45c in my night stand, and another XD45 in my wife's night stand. Unlocked safe on the other side of my night stand, so long guns are close and easily accessible.
