Re: Best all round home defence weapon
I have my .40 loaded with a spare mag in my pistol safe. Under 3 seconds in the dark, hitting the slide release on the draw, and I'm armed. Can't really say that too much about a shotgun, and has much less manuverability than my handgun. However, that doesn't mean that it's not under my bed along with a buncha ammo for both (#6 shot for the shotty though).
I'm definately prepared to go across the hall and into my folks bedroom and hunker down untill the police arrive, and hold off damn near anything/body in the mean time.
