My brand-spankin'-new primary home defense system consists of a Glock 21 .45acp and a Surefire 6P flashlight. I guess secondary would be my katana sword, knives, machette, pepper spray, mag-lites, golf clubs, etc., or maybe another gun, but only if the .45 were unloaded. I just moved into a smaller apartment, so it's all right by my bed. Of course, there's always my patented knuckle-sandwich... Nyuk nyuk nyuk! Naturally, my 18" 870 still rules, but it's not so maneuverable in tight spaces.

In case that is not enough, maybe I should track down Barbara Streisand's Greatest Hits - and keep it at the "ready to play".

maverick 88 12 ga. toatal length: 4 feet with 5 shells of 0 buck shot at most. My house has been broken into 3 times, never while someone was home. I don't expect my house to ever be assaulted by gang members and the four gillion to one chance that that will happen is a chance i'm willing to take. however, anyone trying to rob the house while I or my dad is there will be very sorry. As far as I'm concerned about the whole "I keep a loaded .45 under my pillow sfety off and a round chambered but I'll only use that to fight my way to my M-79 grenade launcher or M-60 4 feet away in the closet/machinegun nest" attitude I think they're paranoid or just trying to make their life seem more interesting.

LAK, you can go to jail for a loooong time for torturing somebody....


Better to know what you don't know than to think you know what you don't know.

Home Defense Weapon

There is no finer home defense weapon, short of a flamethrower, than a short barrel 12 ga. shotgun loaded with buckshot.
