Just wondering what folks keep in their nightstand drawer, under the bed or (egads!) under the pillow? And why you made that choice. Mine is a Sig full-size P250 in .45 with a light on a rail. (I had a 9mm Beretta PX4 with the same light before the Sig; and at one time a .357 4" S&W, and Sig P6.) I've settled on the Sig 250 thinking with one up the spout it's DAO and moderate but smoooth pull weight it's as safe as a revolver; the .45 is a big bullet and will stop anything entering the bedroom; that although I am more accurate at 10 or 15 yards with my P220 in .45, at the range I'd be using a bedside gun I'm accurate enough to hit center of mass; the gun is 100% reliable with my SD ammo; it's uncomplicated and unfussy, pull the trigger and it goes bang, no messing with safeties; and with a rail I have to option of using a light or not. The only limitation is the mag load...but I think 8 rounds of .45 should do the trick, and there's another loaded mag in the same location (a one-gun "safe" that's always open, but that I can lock when the grandkiddies come to visit). So what have you got for when things go "bump" in the night?
