    Love the XD45!!

    Yea, its just a better gun !!

    I am the odd one out here, wife and I both carry Kel Tec P3AT and we just put them on the night stands at night.

    380 HP at close range hopefully want over penetrate a BG and do damage to other who might be in home.

    Extra mag and flash light and cell phone finish out the night stand.

    870 with 00 buckshot near bed if things get out of hand.

    Home Defense scenario provides the obvious reality that god forbid you have to use, at least you know what the environment will be - the house. In that environment, I feel the 45acp is the best choice for 2 reasons.

    1.) it's a more powerful round, and I don't need to worry about carrying or comfort. If somoene breaks in my house, Iwant the biggest caliber I have to stop the threat.

    2.) I think the 45acp will be less penetrating and therefore less dangerous to bystanders inside the house and nearby neighboors as opposed to 357 magnum, 40 cal, 357 sig, and even 9mm.

    Check out the J.I.C by mossberg. O.F. Mossberg & Sons, Inc. - Firearms, Shotguns, Rifles, Accessories, and Precision Machining

    Its not a handgun, which is a good thing.

    You can keep a .45 caliber hand cannon on your night stand with a shotgun leaning in a corner.

    Having a dedicated night stand gun is a fine excuse. My firearm budget does not allow for me buying too many pistols so I just use my XD-45 that I use for everything else. I get the "buy another gun" bug very often, but quickly realize I've already got an amazing handgun. I'll probably buy myself a j-frame one of these days, but other than that, if I get my hands on a tactical light for the XD, I'll be good to go.

    Very interesting reading. My wife's bedside gun is a Colt Detective Special with 38+P Hornady Critical Defense rounds. I keep a Glock 32 w/Double Tap's (357 Sig with 13 rd mag and one in chamber) on my side plus a 12 gauge Winchester riot gun in the nearby corner with Remington 2-3/4 #4 buck. When I leave town on business trips, the G32 becomes my wifes bedside gun as the 357 Sig has significant KE but is easy to shoot/control as she weighs about 90# dripping wet. My bedside gun is my daily carry so when I chose to carry my Kimber Tactical Ultra II (45 ACP), that becomes my bedside gun. When I'm out of town, the Kimber does not become the wifes gun since it is harder to control with +P rounds and she wants more rounds that 7+1.

    I will be picking up my Lewis Machine Tool (LMT) M4 upper and lower in two days and that will become the wife's "corner" gun in the bedroom.

    EAA Witness requires changing the slide assembly and magazine to shoot .22, 9mm, .40, .45, .38 Super, or 10mm

    but for bedside, I prefer the XD-45, too
    tactile verification (cocked? loaded?) in the dark is nice

    My Glock-36 is my EDC and my night stand companion. Try the grip on the G-36...a lot thinner than all other Glocks.

    Warning ,we both practice shooting................ A LOT!!!

    My Glock 27 with nitesiters and crimsom trace laser grips and 120 lumen mounted lite. If that doesn't work than its the mossberg 590 pistol grip back up. Oh Yeah, the wife has a SR9 and a 410 pistol grip mossberg. I forgot our warning system, our bullmastiff and rotti. in the bed room and they sleep very lightly.
