#4 buck is the minimum you should use. Hitting your target is a lot harder than you might think, and I'd definitely not leave it unloaded if you're unsure of your abilities to reload under stress. My 870 wears a short barrel, and 4 ride in the mag tube. If you're worried about spring fatigue, buy some extras and keep em around to replace yours with. Self defense is not something to play games with, no offense intended, and you better be ready when the chips fall. That .38, if you're more practiced with it, is probably a better choice. At house distances, unless you're a millionaire, all shotgun shells hit as pretty much a solid mass.
