Yes, I do hunt and shoot skeet and sporting clays... but in my plan to hole up in the bedroom with the shotgun trained on the door, as the badguy comes into my room, his range of movement is very limited by the door frame, a wall, and some furniture.
Would you recommend shooting clay as the way to go to get proficient with a shotty? are there other methods to get better shooting with a shotty other than static targets?

Re: Home Defense Weapon

The hypothetical scenarios that I try to picture myself in is at least 4 intruders home invading, all armed. (I know that statistics states that most gun fights lasts just a few seconds, but I don't want to be placed in that category just because of Murphy's law) I would feel that the limitations of shotgun ammo would be a problem. I'm aware that you can load it with 6+1, plus shell saddles (+4) and stock saddles (+6) but I feel that it is not enough. I do carry inside the house until I go to bed. In the shooting test portion I had a perfect score and I try to go out to the range (shoot about 250 - 300 rounds) at least once a month when I'm back in town. I know practice gains confidence but I also know that I would be shooting at a moving targets that are shooting back at you, hence why I'm inclined with a pistol/sbr type of weapon because of higher mag capacity. I do like the idea of bigger holes but I also know that I'm not a sharp shooter and certainly not trying to make this topic into a caliber war... so for those that prefer a shotty, do you hunt? shoot clay? practice shooting at moving targets? why do you feel confident that you will not miss? (in the hypothetical scenario that you only have the shotty plus 17 rounds).

Home Defense Weapon

Hi all,

I'm looking for y'alls input on a home defense weapon. I hope you can help me out here. The weapons that I had narrowed it down to are HKsp5k, Sig mpx, CZ evo (either carbine or pistol), Kriss Vector, IWI Tavor x95 (all in 9mm) I don't mind waiting for the stamp as I hope that my edc will suffice (hkp2ksk) in the mean time that I will be waiting for approval. I don't hunt and I like a caliber that will not over penetrate since I have neighbors very near. I'm basically looking for reliability, the longest I will shoot will be 25 yards (size of my backyard). If anyone has any insights on what would be a weapon that they will depend with their lives on will be great. Thanks in advance!
