My bedside SP-100 357 used to be loaded with 38+P (with ears quickly accessible). Now a G-19 seems good enough and I am more likely not to flinch in a clutch situation.
With all due respect, the absolute last thing I will be reaching for in a high-stress/life and death situation is something to lessen my ability to hear what is going on.
