For the last 30+ years, I've used the same shotgun for my primary HD weapon. This same shotgun and I also have countless hours together hunting and drilling. I know it, confident with it, can operate it in low light conditions and have spent the time shooting it with defensive loads so as to know what patterns best for my home situation.
I pray my shotgun will remain only for hunting and I can pass it down to the kids.
My handguns would be what I would grab first as they are usually kept the closest to me but their sole purpose is to escort me to the shotgun if at all possible.
