The first I would grab would be the Winchester 1300 pump 12 gauge, followed by the Sig 220. I reason that just the sound of pumping the shotgun will put a little fear into anybody.
I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.
I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.

I'll go with the auto-loader.
I'd grab the SK, I have one and know how well it shoots, so there was no debate.

HK P2000SK .40, LEM, Night Sights
The S&W 686 was my first handgun, until my roommate stole it and pawned it. Maybe I should have shot......
If I had to pick one without sentimental reasons, I'd go with the .40 auto.
First choice for me is always a revolver!
Until my 686 Plus arrives, my go to gun is the Ruger GP100.
My reasoning, in the middle of the night half asleep I want what I know I shoot best.
Under stress and quickly awakened I doubt if I will shoot the 1.5" groups I shot today, but I want what I feel most comfortable with, if I need to defend myself or my family.

My trusty Ruger 4 inch 357
It's the one I train with most and feel the most comfortable with right now.

You can't go wrong with 12 rnds of 40 S&W, but it would not hurt to have a 12 ga. handy
Not the one with the ported barrel.
I would't grab anything ported for low light use.After first shot you'd be blinded.
I know not what this "overkill" means.

I voted for the H&K P2000 .40 S&W with 12 rounds. I believe the superior firepower of the auto is a must when defending the castle. Thugs seem to travel in wolf packs these days. That is why I use my Glock 19 with 15+1 rounds of 9mm +P for a bedside companion.
God bless our troops!
.40 first but for a nighstand gun it shouldn't be locked up at night, it should be sitting on the nightstand. If you awake to people in the house, the last thing you want to be doing is trying to open a safe half asleep and under an adrenaline dump.
