    You asking for one "best" or best of rifles, shotguns, and pistols? You want one for home defense AND backyard fun? One for carry and home defense? You kinda left it up in the air......you want one gun for everything? It's what you said almost an hour ago......"what gun gets the best rep". Maybe that's why there's been no reply for an hour? I'm one of those that will take you up on a general question like that. Welcome to the club by the way. If you'd like more specific answers, then please be more specific.

    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.
    WHEC724, AZ Hawk, 10thmtn and 3 others like this.

    Best reply. Others have suggested the OP never learn or would rather purvey their personal recommendations or clearly state that which clearly hasn't been clarified. That's the way society works these days. Don't fear it....just go along with it or decide for yourself. Whichever takes the least effort or the least thought is what you need. You're the only one pulling the trigger. Hopefully you will pull the trigger at the right time. Only you can answer that question. Hence we're now back to square one.

    Mossberg 500 with a 181/2 barrel and a pistol grip. I use #7 shells.
    The police are not there to protect you from crime, they are there to arrest the guy after the crime has been committed, assuming they find him. It is your responsibility to protect yourself and your family.

    I won't say what I have .... but I like "choices" when SHTF, and hate running out of ammo in a gun fight.

    But, if you want versatility .... handgun & shotgun (with slugs) typically covers most bases you may need.

    This is nonsensical. Seriously, I have no idea what you're talking about. He asked a question, and people replied. Get over yourself.
