BigJim, I can see a lot of pros in using a handgun for defense but I think you might mention one a shotgun has over the handgun; intimidation. Take a civil unrest situation or a simple criminal intusion. I would think that anyone in their right mind is going to avoid messing with any armed homeowner (the problem being that many are not in their right mind), but moreso if they find themselves looking at the business end of a 12 gauge. Perhaps the ideal solution is both, but given a choice of only one and given my defense plan (stay put upstairs and wait for police) I choose the shotgun.
