Kinda confused myself, as the question stands its all over the place....... Please clarify.
Stop whining and go do something that makes a difference!

My HD gun is a stockless sawed-off Remington 870. I sleep well at night.

There is no single best, but there are plenty of inadequate. My personal go-to HD weapon is a Benelli M4 stoked with #4 buck. One example of inadequate is a Stevens single shot .410.

The one you can use very well and have the most training with.
Proven combat techniques may not be flashy and may require a bit more physical effort on the part of the shooter. Further, they may not win competition matches, but they will help ensure your survival in a shooting or gunfight on the street. ~Paul Howe

I would rather live my life as if there is a God,
And die to find out there isn't, than live my life
As if there isn't, and die to find out there is.

12 gauge or a full size > 9mm pistol with night sights. Simple as that. Wham bam thank you ma'am.
Mossberg 500 with a 181/2 barrel and a pistol grip. I use #7 shells.
I won't say what I have .... but I like "choices" when SHTF, and hate running out of ammo in a gun fight.
