As one of the people who feels comfortable carrying a revolver, I would point out that, in my mind, concealed carry and home defense are two different things...

When defending my home, however, things are a bit different. Should a group of home invaders start breaking my window in the middle of the night, I'm not going to be retreating because I've got nowhere to retreat to. My strategy for home defense is to try to barricade myself somewhere and keep the wolves at bay long enough for the cavalry (meaning the police) to arrive. In that case, I see a much greater need for a high capacity firearm and I keep a semi-automatic .223 rifle with a 20 round magazine as part of my home defense plan.
Great point. Just make sure you are empty-handed when the cops arrive, because they are "trained to shoot anyone holding a gun".
