…, why do you need anything like an AR? WHY?? And the purpose of that double stack mag for your 9mm? If you don’t hit that intruder with the first few rounds, he’s gone, and now the people in your house who live there are in mortal danger of being hit by a stray round…
I don’t own a rifle, pistol, or shotgun, Dusty, and I haven’t fired a pistol (M1911A1) since I was in the ROK in 1988* (where they took preparedness *very* seriously, for some reason), but since you seem to know what you’re doing around firearms, question for you: wouldn’t a shotgun make more sense than a pistol for home defense? A pistol, even at close range, requires a steady hand and calm mind to be accurate, while a shotgun would have an impact over a wide area in the general down range direction. Thoughts?
*Shot Expert, and got the Navy medal for it, but it always seemed like cheating, since it was Army rules. They let me steady myself on sandbags! And I just had to get enough rounds into a silhouette! Thanks goodness they made me wear MOPP gear (anti-chemical warfare protection, with gas mask) or it would have been a joke.
