Best Gun for Home Defense
OK, I know everyone has their own opinion on “Home Defense” weapons. Well, that includes me. Now, you know I don’t mind voicing my opinion and I’m a little “long-winded”, but I ask that you bare with me. My opinion is “Go with what you know.” If you only practice with a pistol; use that pistol for home defense. If you carry a rifle for a living, then it only makes sense for you to use the same type weapon for home defense. Now you notice that I’ve mentioned a pistol and a rifle. I haven’t said shit about a shotgun. That surprises many of you, because “everyone” on the internet/TV/movies push using a shotgun for home defense. -It doesn’t go through walls like a pistol -The “Racking Sound” will scare the intruder away. -You don’t have to aim -Better in low light -The Pump Shotgun will never jam -Weapon of choice for Zombies Well, call me crazy, but to me, for Home Defense, I want: -Accuracy, so I don’t hit friendlies -Stopping power -Something that I have “Muscle-memory” with, for ease of use in hasty situations Shotguns are for breaching doors and shooting birds.
A good AR, with a white light and good optic… along with a quality way to secure it safely; that’s all you need. Enough said.

Tactical Pistol Course | Dover, TN - Day 1
Carry Trainer and Ret. Green Beret Zee Durham taught a Tactical Pistol Course fall 2017 at the Hilltop Firearms Training Center in Dover, Tennessee. The two day class focused on combat shooting with a pistol for concealed carry self defense and armed professionals.

Anyone from or Near Dover Tennessee?? (Who wouldn't mind hanging for a day or two ??)

I agree...to a degree.

For anything less than a hostage situation though, a shotgun is what I recommend for urban home defense. And <shock> provided it's for HD only and particularly those unfamiliar with firearms, a 20ga will do nicely.

For women and smaller statured males, Remington's 870 youth model is virtually perfect. Relatively low recoil, easy to handle even in a narrow hallway, and the problem of over-penetration through interior walls or into the next apartment is greatly reduced with choice loads. The idea is that if you have to pull the trigger, you want massive blood loss with the fewest rounds expended.

Years ago, I found a 21" smoothbore barrel with open sights for my Rem 1100. Along with the "condo commando" buttstock and fore-end (with molded-in light attachment), I feel pretty well set.

Note: shottys with a pistol grip only might be good for the "cool factor". But a pistol grip with a full buttstock goes miles for providing choices in aiming. Held low, you can clamp the buttstock to your hip with your elbow, or throw it to your shoulder for a more precisely aimed shot.

YMMV
