Pistol and shotgun.

I'd go the the Handgun first...it's quickly accessible along with my Surefire. Although I did buy my 870 for HD...it's just too dangerous to keep it loaded and quickly accessibly with my curious 2 yr. old.
I've got no shotty, so its a pistol.
As HKchris said, the police are a close second. I'll want them there to help clean up and haul off the BG.

If 7 rounds of OO Buckshot through my 1100 doesn't solve the problem, I really pissed off someone I shouldn't have
My 590 Mariner is loaded & beside the bed (no kids), but I would probably grab the G22 w/x300 that I keep in the night table.....not really sure why, I know the Mossy is more effective, just feel more at ease with a handgun.

Im a big fan of the .22LR for bear defense.
Just shoot the guy next to you in the knee and run like heck.

Depends on what I hear. I usually grab a K frame with CT laser grips but a 12 gauge is also ready to 'repel borders.'
I didn't vote because I have a 20 gauge 870, S&W .357 revolver & a glock beside the bed when sleeping. However, I'd probably grab the 870 first.
Handgun. It's the most accessible and maneuverable in my house as well as allowing me a free hand when need be.

I voted handgun. As I work my way through my G30, my 4566, even my CZ-82, my old (legal) sawed-off 20 ga single-shot is my tool of last resort. It makes a handy bat, also.
