If you had a revolver, semi auto pistol and a home defense shotgun at hand - what would you grab in a home defence intrusion situation
Hypothetically speaking..... What if you had multiple of all three? Loaded and strategically placed throughout the home?

How close are neighbors? A shotgun at home defense ranges has a pattern about the size of a half dollar so don't think you can't miss with one. Asked about neighbors because with handguns or rifle that bullet will go through and through. If I made a shot down the hallway and missed that bullet is going to end up in the neighbors house. Hell if I connected it still could go through.

Yes it a very good point - the AR also a very poor choice for intrusion defense- btw a shoot gun makes a good club and you old military guys know how parry and thrust

Yeah a AR loaded with fragmental ammo would be good. The saying is to use your handgun to get to the rifle. Where I'm located I'm using a .45 with good defence ammo. A 230 grain bullet at 900 fps isn't going very far.
