[QUOTE=Colin;870456]If you are defending your home, likely the shots you will have to take will be up close and personal, otherwise you will have lots of explaining to do to the police. I like my Storm for home defense, very accurate and little recoil.[/QUOTE
As I read this thread I had the same thought. In a home defense scenario shooting out beyond 100--200yds might be hard to justify.
That's why I got a Romanian AK47 with several 30rd magazines. I can couple two mags together and with my tactical sling I can be very mobile and still deliver a devestating amount of firepower onto multiple targets. I can also stock up on 500rds at a time for a bit over $100.
My "wife gun" (for now) is a stainless Ruger 10/22 with a 4X scope. It can hit (wound, most likely) multiple targets up to 100 yds with low noise, nearly zero recoil and deliver multiple shots with a pair of coupled 25rd magazines. Bricks of 500 hi-velocity rounds run about $25, too.
For on-the-go ranch protection my Kimber .45 carries 13 rounds of low-flash HPs and the tritium night sights allow me to work in complete darkness without betraying my position.
Thinking beyond home defense, if the people's militia element comes into play then a long-range weapon might assert itself, otherwise I'm concentrating on protecting me and mine with the above mentioned tools.
Don't forget to bow as the chariot passes.
