    Here's the scenario...

    You're at home, sleeping in bed. At 2am you here the sound of what is most definitely a break-in. What weapon do you go for?

    I've currently got a poll going on this on my blog and not surprisingly a pump action 12 gauge tops the votes.

    20 to 30 rounds of serious ammo in a weapon designed for close quarters combat.

    If I could find my first wife, Debbie that horrible woman, I'd get her to scare the intruder away. My backup plan is the revolver that I always have with me. good luck

    Call 911 - have them send an ambulance - grab non-Glock pistol and go see who the dog has bitten.

    If it's the 2am coming up in a few hours, I'll make the damn idiot eat the leftovers that are in the fridge from the casserole (or whatever it was) that the daughter made for us this evening. The girl has many talents. Cooking is not one of them. After a little of that stuff, he'll gladly surrender.

    German Shepherd Dog and Walther P99.

    You might get in but you won't get out.
    I like all kinds of foreign guns.

    I don't always use missiles, but when I do it's the Minuteman III LGM-30G
