    Well I look at this way. I'm pretty good with a pistol but for My better half EHHHHHHH. I showed her 4 things.

    1.) Where the charging handle is.
    2.) how to put a 30 round mag in a AR
    3.) how to smack the side of the gun to make the bolt go foward.
    4.) How read the switch that says Safe and change it to fire.

    She has a CTC laser grips on the gun that comes on when she squeezes the grip. She also has 30 chances to pull the trigger, and the gun dosn't recoil as much as a pistol.
    Plus for me I try not and bring a handgun to gun fight. Overpower, Control, Dominate the situation, and continue to take in Oxygen for the following day is what I have to have happen.

    My main concern in using a rifle like the SKS for defense is the fact that the rounds just don't stop when they hit walls. It is very plausible to think that you could fire in the home and have the round travel through the walls and into another home. This is the reason why I laugh when I see the guy in the movies jump behind the car door or 55 gallon drum when he is taking fire from an AK47 or the like. You know what I mean.

    If I have a small army attacking my home then I could see the AK47 be a valid choice, but not for the midnight intruder.

    Please help me see the light here. What am I missing?
