    For the house I use my Kimber Ultra Carry IILG because that is what I carry . I did take a Judge in on trade that is nice too. I have a 870 close by and a safe full of bad guy fun. Pity the guy that tries to break in my house. After I call my bad ass Dog "Dammit" off them they better run. The alarm will get the cops there in about an hour. If they get shot they will bleed out before help arrives. By help I mean for them.

    For me I have 2 options from the bedroom. First is a Remington 870 tactical or a Kimber Custom II 1911. The wifes first option from the bedroom is a Sig 1911 C3. Other rooms in the house have different options.

    Home defense in order of magnitude:

    - Door Locks
    - Me 6' & 235 lbs.
    - 6 cell Mag Light (Really nice skull thumper)
    - Cold Steel Trail Master
    - Cold Steel Gurka kukri
    - Beretta 92 FS with CTG
    - Ruger SRH loaded with 180 gr JHP specials
    - Trusty Savage Fox BSE with #4 shot

    Oh yes, lastly I would call 911 for a tax paid LEO to come save me before the BG did something evil.

    I am never more than 2 feet away from my Glock,(ok, maybe 3 feet in the shower.) And between me and my roomate, we have a pretty decent collection of firearms strategically placed, with at least one in every room. I think if someone broke into my house, I would be in a panic to try to figure out which gun to grab first.
    [SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]In order to rally people, governments need enemies. They want us to be afraid, to hate, so we will rally behind them. And if they don't have a real enemy, they'll invent one in order to mobilize us.

    I live in the great state of Massachusetts... so my guns need to be "locked in a secure container or secured with a trigger lock" at all times. Since the safe takes too long to open (and is inconvenient to move around with me from room to room), my first choice of the "classic" 870 is out.

    So i must resort to the M&P40 in the quick-access box, or a pair of ice-axes as a backup.

    I'm using my new toy...

    I've rotated my new Springfield XD/M .40 with Lasermax rail-mounted laser into service. Quick and easy to present and has really nice ergonomics. I also got the Springfield combat trigger job with reduced overtravel. I like it very much. But I still am really fond of my wonderful SIG P239/40. Another truly outstanding firearm.

    When dressed, I am armed with my Glock 26. When in bed, it is near, but also have a sawed-off double barrel 20 gauge laying next to the bed.
    The world is a dangerous place to live - not because of the people who are evil, but because of those who do nothing about it.

    I'm with you on the shotgun. I use a legally sawed off 12 gage loaded with #2 buck. that's if i have a little notice of a break-in. For surprises I have a .40 cal or a .45 cal. Taurus by the bed.

    Sold my Mossberg 500 years ago... wish I hadn't. For now, my primary HD weapon is my Glock 20. Usually if up and around the house, I am wearing a "belly band" holster with my G23. Bedtime I have my G20 on a night stand right next to my side of the bed. She's got Meprolight night sites and I also have a SureFire 6P flashlight handy as well. Works great for temporarily blinding an intruder.
