    Yes and no. . .

    I carry a S&W 442 with a crimson trace laser and 4 speed strips.

    It stays next to my bed at night, but I also have speedy access to:

    - A Marlin 1894CS loaded with .357 mags
    - A Springfield Micro .45 w/4 loaded (7 rnd) mags
    - A Ruger SP101 in .38, loaded plus 3 speed loaders
    - 3 Really good (bright) LED flashlights
    - A crazed 9 lb Yorkie. . .

    Carry = Beretta Nano = 6+1 rounds
    Home = S&W M&P9 = 17+1 rounds
    I prefer higher capacity when I don't have to carry it around IWB.
    Both loaded with 124gr Speer Gold Dots

    I see a lot of handguns, but I primarily use my Mosin Nagant for home defense until Thursday. Thats when I bring home my new Savage/Stevens 230 Security pump.

    Yep. I keep a FiveseveN loaded with Elite Ammunition Protector II rounds and a rail mounted light on my nightstand. Sometimes I keep a Marlin 336 in 30-30 or a 10.5" AR15 next to the bed as well. The neighborhood across mine had 8 break-ins (one very violent) in 6 months. Thats when the rifles took up duty. I rarely carry the FiveseveN, its a little big for me so it comes out in cool weather when I can easily wear a cover garment and then its OWB.
    I carry a .357mag because no one bickers about the .357mag being "enough".

    I carry a Glock 27 and have a Glock 22 in our bedroom (my wife has access to it when I'm not around). I used to keep my P14-45 in the bedroom (it's locked but accessible downstairs now), but decided that in the middle of the night when I'm half-asleep and it's dark it, if I can't get my carry gun for some reason then it makes sense to have something familiar. Additionally, I can use the G22 magazines in the G27 if needed, which was a huge bonus from my perspective.

    If you think that you might want to carry that spare pistol then the G23 might make sense. I like my G22 for what it is - primarily a home defense gun that I occasionally use with a thigh holster when shooting my M4.

    I carry a Sig 220 when in the winter & a Sig 229 in the summer. I use AR's for the house, one on each side of the bed with red dots & Streamlight TRL's LED. There's also night vision & body if needed

    I carry smaller guns because I cannot comfortably conceal a full-sized pistol. My HD pistol is a S&W M&P9 that sleeps in a holster on my side of the bed. And all that is there for is to get me to my safe where my AR-15 is loaded up with 30 rounds of 62gr hollow points and a back-up mag of 30 62gr hollow points.

    I was using my P-11 carry gun for my HD pistol until I bought the M&P9, which was originally going to be a range-only gun, until I saw how accurate I was with it and fell in love with 17+1 rounds without a reload.

It will be close to my carry gun as they will have the same caliber, Glock trigger, and feel in my hand. Any thoughts?
    Sound choices all around. I personally like sticking to the same controls but just going up the full-size frame.

    Not to mention using the same caliber and being able to use the full-size mags in your compact/sub-compact is a definite benefit.

    Interesting. I have a 91/30 and never thought of using it for HD mainly due to it's length and also because of it's bolt action, not to mention over-penetration possibilities.

    Yes and no. Remington 870 for me, a S&W M&P for the wifey. Obviously my carry is not the 870.

    My usual carry is a Glock 19. My home defense gun is a Glock 17. I like to keep the guns similar and in the same caliber for ease of logistics. I do need a weapon light though. And I am thinking a Glock 34 might be a better fun for home defense. Now I just might have to buy one.

    . This pretty much sums up my idea as well.
