I really like US Palm's idea. Mount a Serpa, extra mags, flashlight, etc.

I have to agree with everyone else, just a G23 with a tactical light on a magnetic holster (really like these) on the side of the night stand.
Training means learning the rules. Experience means learning the exceptions.
My bump in the night kit is in this box (G17, 2 spare loaded mags). Flashlight and cell phone on night stand next to it.

I already keep my .45 and spare mags along with a 38 for the wife and a couple of Surefires in a pistol safe by the bed! My cell is always on the night stand by the bed! The guns have gotta stay in the safe if I don't have it on me since I have 4 soon to be 5 kids around the house! When I say kit I'm just looking for something to put it in and throw if over a shoulder if I have to investigate a noise! I usually have basketball shorts on around the house at night so kinda short on pockets!
The versatility of the Wilderness Safepacer Concealment Holster is immeasurable.
It can be used at bedside, in the car (on your seatbelt), mounted on a backpack or any number of other ways limited by your imagination?
With the shoulder strap you can just throw it on over your shoulder and still be hands free and don't even have to be dressed to use it. All your gear in one place. Car keys, gun, cell phone, flashlight or whatever. Cell phones can placed inside the accessory pocket or clipped externally to one of the D-rings with your car keys. It even accommodates guns with mounted weapon lights as well as having a handheld flashlight clipped to the strap.
Check out the video on how it can be used to keep your essential gear like your cell phone, flashlight, gun and spare mags at the ready.

I have a shottie with a sure fire mounted on it ready to go by the bed, don't worry about spare ammo, its on the side saddle, Don't worry about getting dressed because there is nothing scarier than my furry hide coming down the stairs at 1am with a locked and loaded shottie in hand. If the shotgun does not work, me in the buff will.
"The value you put on the lost will be determined by the sacrifice you are willing to make to seek them until they are found."
I have a shotgun under the bed & my Springfield 1911 on the night stand. Just think about it.

SW 686+, SW 642, and SW 637. Each fully loaded and in a keypad safe that fits into my drawer. Flashlight, and, now, cell phone.
No kit. Just necessities close at hand. Clothes laid out next to bed. No light colors! No GI Joe BS either. Boots open, laces prepped if needed. Glasses, spare glasses in dresser. Cell phone on charger. Primary and secondary weapon cond I and II. 2 Surefire w/ fresh bats. One mounted on 12 ga. Note-I no longer check on anything OUTSIDE my home.Thats what police are for.If someone is in my garage I may consider launching a bird/bear banger in there just out of spite...
wish list- good NVGs IE;PVS-7A

I have a Glock and a flashlight. Giddy up!

electronic earmuffs that amplify low level sounds, and/or muffle loud ones. I can hear a mouse fart all the way in the tv room! flashlight with strobe feature, big scary knife
