    home defense

    12 ga. Franchi I-12. Loaded with 2 3/4 hevi dove shot. Still looking for a better defense load though.

    Mossberg 835 with 3.5" 00 Magnums. I have low-recoil 2.75" 00s right next to it, but after one of the neighbor's cows lost a calf and went psycho over it, I keep the cowstoppers loaded.

    Of course, every gun in the house is either loaded with the most effective rounds we have on hand for it, or locked up so it won't accidentally be grabbed when we need a loaded gun.

    My USP fullsize 45 with the Gun-Light hung on the rail. Streamlight variation. That's usually under my pillow. However if I get home late or I'm otherwise very tired, I'll slide whatever is on my hip under my pillow like my Glock M27 or my Sig P245. I like for it to be in CONDITION 2 (mag inserted, chamber clear) because I sometimes have some vivid nightmares and I want to be SURE of the threat. That action of racking the slide always works to bring me to full alert. There's ALWAYS a SureFire within reach.

    Oh and a Rossi CoachGun 12 ga side by side with exposed hammers is over the bedroom door. Street Howitzer for the narrow hallway as the sole approach.

    I usually put my primary carry piece, a XD 45 on the night table when I go to sleep/ I usually keep either my Glock 19 or my Glock 26 in a cut out concealment book on the headboard, for my wife to use if I'm not at home, or I go down. I also keep my Beretta 92 FS in a similar book on an end table beside my recliner (NOTE: There are no children in the house, and none ever come in. Should that ever change (my wife gets a friend with kids that brings them to visit, the guns will be made more secure. As is, they are unobtrusive, and readily available).

    When things go bump in the night there is no more attention getting sound than a pump shot gun racking. Therefore. a Mossberg retired military (like me) police riot shotgun stuffed full of seven 00 buckshot shells is my preferred house pet.

    I would use my 1300 Winchester with #3, but I hate opening and closing my safe twice a day.
    So I keep my carry pice (Glock 19 or Springer 1911) on my nightstand.

    I voted my carry piece as it is my constant companion day and night. However, I have in the past used my 20 gauge 870 lightweight as a house gun but have been looking for a good (read reasonably priced) tactical shotgun.

    Boomer....I have seen some very modestly priced used 12g shotties on gunsamerica all "tact up". I, personally, bought an old mossy 500 and put hogue overmolded stocks and an elastic side saddle on her....works great for me and was very easy on the wallet. I shot skeet with it a week ago just for a laugh and hit 23/25!

    His and Hers Revolvers in the nightstands, I voted rifle though, it's a SKS with a long sharp point-thing on the business end of it.
