    You point a BB gun at me and I will have no choice but to assume it is a gun and you mean me harm. I'm not gonna have time to see much else. If the tip isnt colored orange, you must be trying to kill me.

    Per the story, "Nothing was taken and no shots were fired."

    Probably would have gotten the same result with any sort of firearm; and a shotty would have done nicely
    in this situation with much less risk of harming someone in an adjoining apartment.

    Good on them for having something, but they didn't win this one because they had an AR. They won because
    they had "something" and the BGs had a sense of self-preservation and the good sense to flee.

    Meanwhile, it wouldn't have gotten to the housemates upstairs bedroom door if the guy who screamed had a
    .38 J frame or an LCP type pistol within reach. Or even throwing darts.

    Not sure how you figure that. Any buckshot load has a much greater risk of overpenetration and going through walls with little resistance than any of the modern .223 hollowpoint defensive rounds. .223 defensive rounds will fragment and essentially disentigrate after passing through as little as 2 sheets of drywall.

    Most people are under the erroneous assumption that just because it's a centerfire rifle round, it must go through walls and houses like they were made of butter.

    That myth has been pretty much dispelled time and time again in controlled testing.

    Compared to any handgun round and any buckshot load, the .223 carbine is the safest of all of them in regards to endangering others in adjoining apartments or even the neighbors house across the street.
