Re: Home Defense Weapon

I have two large and protective dogs. However, they are just used as a alarm and a deterrent. I'm calling my girls to my bedroom ASAP so that I may protect them. Burglars can have my electronics. I've seen what a shotgun will do to a bad ass dog.

Interesting. However as this thread is concerning home defense I believe the use of a rifled 12 ga slug to be bogus. I always have slugs on my stock to be inserted if necessary, but I primaryly use either # 1 or # 4 buckshot. I think even 00 buck would be more " real world" for home defense.

Re: Home Defense Weapon

I vote for a 12 ga with Federal flight control and # 1 buckshot.
