    The G17 rarely goes on carry duty, so this is kept along with a back-up mag in the Gunvault in my bedside table when I'm home.

    I carry a Glock 27 and have a Glock 20 for home defense. If I did not have kids at home, I would still carry the Glock 27, but would keep a long gun by the bed at night.

    My house gun is a Glock 23 with Tru-Glow TFO's. My EDC is a Ruger LC9.

My wife and children do not go with me to work, or travel with me for business trips, etc.

    Well said, and the bolded is why I starting using a 9mm for HD instead of my .45s, so my wife is comfortable with it and able to shoot it well.

    G26/CBST for CCW and G17 always in FAS1 SAFE for my dedicated HD gun. Also have a couple spare mags with it as well.

    Yes. I carry a Kahr CW9 or a G19. I keep a G17 with a light for dedicated HD duty.

    Yep ... I carry either a Springfield 1911 Micro-compact or CZ Rami, while my primary Home SD gun is my Ruger P345.

    I carry a M&P40C but have two nightstand guns, my FNP-45 and a Taurus 24/7 9mm that my wife is comfortable using. I love using excuses to get more guns...

    Being a bit heavy for carry I just leave the Ma Deuce and M1919A1 at the house for HD duty and carry the M1911.


    Actually the 1911 serves for both roles.

    I usually do. I carry either G19, G30SF or J-frame. Kept a USP .45 for my HD gun. I've been having some issues with my HK. Plan on sending it in for some warranty work. So for now, the G19 is on HD duty.

    Good thinking. I generally carry either my Glock 26, PM9, or LCP - depending on attire and the situation.

    My home defense handgun is a Glock 19, with a mounted light, night sights and CT laser. It is easier to get quickly out of the GunVault safe (we have kids) than the shotgun is to get out of the long gun safe. My wife also shoots the G19 VERY well. When we are all in the safe room (our bedroom) she gets the G19 and I get the shotgun out to cover the door.

    Once she gets comfortable with my Glock 30, I might make that the home defense handgun - or not. I use my G30 mostly for duty use.

    I have carried the G19 quite a bit in the past, but as my day-job needs are discreet, I generally carry the smaller guns.

    A larger sibling for your G27 would be a very good idea.
    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

    My carry is a M&P 9c, a Kimber Ultra Crimson Carry, or Ed Brown Kobra. Depends what I feel like that day. When I get in I use same gun on nightstand, and also a Browning shotgun nearby with 00 Buck.

    g'morning, coffee around:
    Am I missing something, but just why do you need night sights for use in a home? Most situations will occur in less than across a room distance.Surely you put in enough practice to hit consistantly in that distance by point shooting, no?? If not, the I suggest that either you get serious or invest in a guard dog. Practicing will cost nothing, just the use of a mirror for perhaps 15 minutes daily.

    Carry is a Colt New Agent or M&P 340 in summer. Night stand has a Remington R1 Enhanced. On the wife's side is a Beretta 92FS Compact.
