    G-d, Make me fast and accurate. Let my aim be true and my hand faster than those who would seek to destroy me. And G-d if today is truly the day you call me home, then let me die in a pile of empty brass.

    I bought a Stevens side-by-side double-barrel 12 gauge shotgun last Saturday on Uncle Joe's advice. It is so old, it doesn't have a serial number.

    I carry a gun, because a Cop is too heavy.

    He was shot in the leg with a shotgun and able to run to a neighbors. Either they were using birdshot or meant to shoot next to him and sprayed him unintentionally. Either way this sounds like they knew the guy and what he had. Not much you can do in this situation though, maybe if your in another room when they kicked the door in but not if you were right there unless you have a gun on your person at home. Ive read on here countless times about how people dont carry at home, here is an instance when it would have been an advantage.

    Not carrying at home is crazy, since all home invasions happen AT HOME!

    Would not have wanted to faced off against two intruders with shotguns if all I had with my daily carry gun. I think oakchas' gospel about hardening your perimeter and entries would have been the only real defense here. Maybe giving you time to recognize the threat and react appropriately. Possibly getting to heavier firepower.

    I agree but if my only option was get shot or shoot with my daily carry i would take the later. I would hope to be in the room with my AR15 if this happened though. But like you said, this is why security is key.

    Firing a suppressed is on my Bucket List.

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    America...a Constitutional Republic. NOT a democracy as the liberals would have us believe.
