To each their own, as I often say.  That wouldn't make my Top 10 for a nightstand gun but if it works for you that is great.  Care to explain your reasoning behind that selection??

The bond is small concealable and do you really need more than 2 shots ?

That is what struck me as a bit odd.  As a nightstand gun concealability is not usually of any particular importance, and 2 rounds really does limit you should there be any sort of sustained activity.

Being small concealable is my choice ,the 2 shots give me chance to get to another weapon preferably my shotgun . Leaning in corner of bedroom a few feet away .i have carried the bond arms derringer a couple of times.

My Bond is in .357. I bought the 410/45 barrels for it.
First and only time on the range the pellets bounced
back and hit my friend and I in the lower legs.
No target penetration. 
Sold the barrels real quick.

Sorry to hear about your friend ! Mine shoots the 3" shells all I have ever shot is slugs and buck shot OO also
Pdxi 3" self defense never had that happen . That would make me sell the whole darn gun .they are not cheap.

I don't have a weapon in my night stand.  I've got an AI&P tactical 870 under my bed.  In case I don't choose to grab the 870, I've got a Tactical Walls four handgun concealed wall unit in the wall next to my bed.  I've got four Glocks in that unit, which is left slightly open when I'm home, for quick access.  (And that is just on the second floor! lol)

Well I do have my modified Remington 870 12 gauge, a Ruger Redhawk 44 Mag that has Hornady Critical Defense 44 Spec. loads in it right beside me while in bed. A step away are many more loaded firearms.
Not paranoid but life and experience has taught me to plan, prepare and train for the worst.

My bedside weapons are a matched pair of 4 inch 80s model Taurus 66s 357 revolvers, my wifes favorite handgun period. I used to keep a 1911 in .45 acp until I realized if all she could reach was my side, she would be not as good with it. So now there are identical revolvers both with matching speed loaders loaded with Freedom Arms 158 grain DPX 38 specials, can be used in our .38 carry snubs if needed. The Mossberg is behind the closet door loaded with #4 with the Marlin .44 carbine. 

Along with them are identical Inova T2 lights, I keep both sides identical so no matter where you go you know exactly what to expect.
