Remmington 870. A shotgun is the best all around weapon. Offensive, defensive, down multiple types of game. Sure semi autos are nice but you will never get a failure to feed with a pump.

AA-12 Fully Automatic




This should be sufficient.

For home defense I think shotguns are far and away the best. Other than the intimidation factor they're also better because you don't have to be that good of a shot and, as mentioned, they're highly versatile.

Remington 410 is hard to go wrong with.

Yes I know handguns are a better choice, but let's talk home defense shotguns.

Go....


Oh zoddy I love your tender soft hands.

Shotguns are better choice for 90% of the population b/c 1) they dont really need to be aimed 2) they will not penetrate walls.

Remington 870 with 00buck shot will do the trick.
But honestly a 250$ walmart job will run off a robber, just keep it clean/oiled.

I'm looking at this one

http://www.remington...-blackhawk.aspx

Still researching


Im not an expert like others on the board, but that would do the trick and then some.
I would suggest you get a solid stock tho, you are payin extra for that one and you will never utilize it.

If price is of great concern go with a new England pardner pump protector. Basically it's an 870 clone. Same parts and same after market accessories. They run 200 new. Remington bought out NEF so your getting an 870 stamped with NEF.

Shotgun loads are a whole other thread. The possibilities are literally endless. Any load for any situation.

I don't own a gun, but I've certainly thought about it. Robberies are definitely becoming more frequent in my area of Charlotte, not to mention the Bob Barber murder last year was near me, and that was in broad daylight. Having a gun might make me feel safer, but if someone actually broke in in the middle of the night, I would still shitshit my pants.

Ive preached this to as many people that would listen to me. You only need to do 3 simple things to survive a home invasion.

1. Secure your perimeter. Lock your doors and windows. Most times the subject will enter through an unlocked access point. Also light your place up like times square. Use a combination of natural and man made barriers. Make it the most unatractive target possible.

2. Get a dog. Personal preference on this one. At the very least if someone does decide to forcibly enter your home you will know. He will also know there's a dog inside. I prefer a dog that backs up his bark. The dog will also buy you valuable time.

3. Get a firearm. Subject broke your perimeter, dog is raising hell and you have your weapon. Subject now has to make a decision. The dog or you. It might only take him 2 seconds to think it out, but in that 2 seconds you can put 5 rounds center mass.

If you utilize these 3 simple things you will survive.

Yep, you are a dumbass if you leave your house open...that is asking
Dog is a big help. If my wife and I are in bed, and we hear a noise, I yell to my dog "watch him" and that 80 lb dog goes into full protection mode, growling, barking, he sounds scary from the outside.
And finally, have a gun, yes, check. We don't just have o e gun, in one place. We have multiple guns stashed around the house, so if something happens, we are near a firearm if we need it. I know this sounds silly, but I want to get night vision googles to keep next to my bed, so if poo goes down, I can put those on, and operate in the dark!

All in all, I am still gonna get an alarm system for the wife when I am out of town!

Instead of the dog, you can learn to bark like a dog. When you do your fake bark, don't force air out of your lungs. Actually, suck air in as you're "barking." It sounds like a large, menacing dog when done right.
