Best home defense weapon is a shotgun loaded with bird shot.....you won't kill someone 2 rooms away like a handgun.



That depends on which ammunition you are using.

You take the cheap ball ammo and use that at the range for practice, and for self defense and Home Defense you reload and use hollow points. They hit what you are aiming at and then they stop there.

And once every 6 months or so you fire off the hollow points that have been sitting in the gun and reload your mag with new hollow points just to keep fresh ammo in there

Hate to disagree with you but hollow points WILL penetrate a wall. This video shows just how much.....

I don't blame you for not listing off all your toys for a reason like that. However, I do like hearing people's opinions on different manufacturers or calibers or what is your favorite type to shoot or what you've maybe had good luck with or bad luck with Etc

 

Personally I'm a Ruger guy  :) 

 

But do have a few S&W products as well as a few Remington products and then the antiques.
