Curious as to what pistol is serving home/bedroom duty and what accessories if any are on board. Light, laser,etc.

I've been using my SP101 Ruger. It has a XS Standard Dot Night Sight so it's easy to see in the dim light.

I utilize three different pistols. A Glock 17 with 18 rounds of 124 grain Golden Sabers, a HK VP9 with 16 rounds of 124 Golden Sabers, and a Glock 21 with 14 rounds of 230 grain Winchester Rangers. All 3 are equipped with night sights.

G17 with attached light in a microvault resides by the bed, along with 2 extra magazines (30 rds total, being I reside in the People's Republik), G30sf on my hip right now. I'm still experimenting with around the house EDC, mostly between the G19 and G30sf.

That said, we just started the process of buying a second home in Nevada, which will eventually become our primary home as we shift out of Kalifornia, which will become a vacation home. I'm thinking the G30sf will stay in Kalifornia in the microvault, since it is naturally a 10 rounder, and I'll take the G17 to Nevada and get some new 17rd mags and another microvault. The G19 will also go to NV with some new 15 rd mags as well, and the XDs will most likely reside in Kalifornia as my 'round the house gun. The 238, 938, and/or the Ultracarry will go with me as I travel between the two.

My current bedside pistol is a railed Wilson Combat Beretta 92G with a Streamlight TLR-2 flashlight/laser. I absolutely, 100% recommend a railed handgun with a light attached. Also keep a handheld light on the night stand for general use. Reason being, flashlights get misplaced, knocked off nightstands, wife used it and didn't return it, kids played with it and didn't return it, etc. If the flashlight is mounted to your pistol, it will never be misplaced and you will always have a light available.

As far as flashlights, I personally avoid the Chinese deals that are $40. My bare minimum light is a stream light TLR-1. The new ones have 800 lumens, they will last you a life time, so spend the money to get a quality light.

Also, I consider the pistol to be a backup weapon. If I hear a bump in the night I grab an AR-15, which also has a quality Surefire flashlight mounted. Long guns are more accurate, 3 times as powerful, and rifles hold more ammo too.

LOL, good one Zonker !!!! Rock Island 1911 for the past 20 years. Toying with a Sig Pro 9mm there for the past week. Not sure where this is headed, after my love affair with this Sig Pro is over, I may go back to the 1911!
