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

I own a few rifles and pistols, and shoot regularly both indoors and outdoors. Over the years I have come to prefer a pistol with full metal construction. I own both a Beretta M92F and a Springfield 1911. The other feature of these two pistols I love is the external hammer, and that added visual security it provides. I like to quickly look at the pistol and see that its cocked or not.

 

 

Yes... I much prefer to see a hammer. Our H&K's had the decocker lever, but no safety. It was called a Variant 3. We carried one in the chamber and half cocked all the time...lol (yeah, I know that sounds weird) The Sig P226 has a similar decocker that I thought worked nicely

 

I used the range's H&K USP 9mm for my requal 2 weeks ago. I thought it shot the same as the .40 I carried, and possibly even better. A little less snap and I get 2 more rounds as well. Ammo is cheaper and easier to find, so I've already decided I'm going with a 9mm regardless.

I've shot a few Glocks in the past and I wasn't too impressed with them to be honest. I know a lot of people swear by the 17s and 19s, but they're just not for me. On top of that, I've always thought they were ugly. Oddly enough, I think the PX4 Storm is also rather ugly but it shot pretty nice. I had a hard time trying to adapt to the grip on it though. I'm pretty used to my blocky shaped pistols like the H&K in the Sig. The Beretta was a little swoopy and comfortable but in a weird way. I think I would have to shoot it a lot more to get used to it. But to be honest, I'm finding the Sig I like as well as H & K's on that gunbroker.com website for under 500 so that is cool.
