    Bad guy comes in what long gun you reaching for ?

    So bad guy comes in .. What gun you going for ? not counting handguns of course ...

    I am guessing most will say shotgun ... But I will be different and add that I might also go for a m-1 carbine or a true uzi ( IMI or vector at least) .. Both to me easy to handle CQB guns and even in non nfa form pretty handy and easy to bring into action .... Plus the uzi make a great club if all else fails ... Plus both pistol rounds so wont sound like the charge of the light brigade going off indoors

    I really think I would go for a uzi come to think off it .. 32 round mags handy and can fire from the hip stock folded if last ditch needed ... Plus makes such a sinster sound would you cock it ( might not scared them off but will give them time to think on the bad things they have done ...)

    A handgun is the only thing I keep within reach at all times, so it is what I will going with.

    For my current situation shotgun wins, but in other situations such as living in a more rural area an m1 carbine or sks would be an option as well.

    My double barrel 12GA is only a few feet away, but I really prefer my Glock-21 for my uninvited guest welcoming committee meetings.

    I voted for the shotgun in this poll. My 500 has 6 ready rounds on the side saddle on the receiver. Two slug, 2 00 buck and 2 #4 buck. I'm sure slugs would work but I'm no expert.

    As I though shotguns and handguns ... Still wating for a AK to pop up

    Guess I should go pattern my new boom stick and see if it shall go next to the bed soon. Something about 7 rounds of buck does sound like good company for bad people ... Though 35 rounds of 9mm HP could be a great welcome too .. Humm

    It would depend on where I was! There are rifles in both barn and garage in varmint calibers. But in the house it would be most likely a shotgun. DR

    Double barrel coach gun, just like the VP said we should.

    Racking the slide of a pump is nice! But nothing commands attention like looking down those twin 12 ga barrels.

    Same ol', same ol' here, remaining unchanged for years. Neither are as common as those choices suggested in the poll except for "other" and one is downright weird.

    Available to either of us but primarily for Mrs. BMc's use is an M1 Carbine. It's difficult to imagine a better inside-the-house rifle, very dependable in function, compact and well-balanced, and a natural pointer if there ever was one. The .30 Carbine cartridge is punchy too, especially with jacketed soft-nosed ammunition.



    It's obsolete as is its cartridge but I love the almost unique ballistics of the cartridge and appreciate the simple and reliable design of its semi-automatic action. If anyone has ever picked one of these up and examined it then he'd know that the thing is really heavy despite its compact size; all massive forged steel and walnut. It'd double as a really effective club.

    The shorty shotguns have long been put away and the AR 15 was never a serious home defense contender. I do like rifles though.
