I picked up an H&R defendor a couple months ago (good sale at Cabela's) and have been satisfied with it. It’s solid, albeit a bit heavy. I figured why spend a bunch of money on something that's primary use will be sitting in the gun cabinet waiting on the rare possibility it will get shot in a home defense situation. And if it does, it will end up seized as evidence and tied up in court. It was a win-win for me, being on a budget and all.
