We speak a lot about our carry guns. What do people choose for their primary house guns and why?

I have two Benelli M1 Super 90 "Tactical" shotguns located strategically. Both are equipped with Surefire 617FA lights and loaded with #1 buckshot.

Always I regard my carry as primary - when out of holster at bed time it goes on the floor within reach.

Just recently my step kids have left home and so it is just two of us - my presently office-located 870 will almost certainly be soon in the house but - as secondary. Just have to ''make do'' with AK in office :wink:

Mossberg 500 with 7 rounds of 00 in the mag, slugs and 00 in the side saddle

wife's XD 9 within her reach (soon to be replaced with her new Glock), my HK 45 full size is within my reach

edited to go a few steps further:
Glock 30 to backup the HK and an AK-47 with 5 30rnd mags at the ready if it really hits the fan...and the wife knows how to shoot all of them

This is a tough one as I can only pick one.

I did however pick the shotty cause to me it is the best choice for HD, has a better advantage over a hand gun and you can choose what round is the best for your situation. I do have both my carry piece, a 1911 and a Marine Magnum right close to me with my G2 with the 120 lumen lamp in it for blinding, advantage and positive recognition.

I voted rifle , I consider my carry handgun something to get me out of the mix or to a better firearm , at home the rifle is at hand so it gets picked up rather than a pistol . IMHO a shotgun would be fine too , I just prefer the simplicity of a rifle ( one projectile going where I choose )

The carry 1911 is the first line of defense but there is always at least one mag ready to be slapped into the AR if time permits.

Mossberg 500 18.5" barrel loaded with 2 3/4" 00 buck.

Why? Because I'm getting pretty good with my shotty and I'm too young to own a handgun.

My Sig 228 or my Model 65 Smith and Wesson are always within arms reach. I have an 870 close at hand then followed by a MAK-90.
If time permits, I'll go to the long guns, if not then it is the pistol or revolver.

All the carry guns under bed in small safe, with one out. They will get me to the Winchester Defender with 00 shot and the Mini 30 and several 20 round mags...

My current house gun is a Glock 34 that is loaded with Remington 124gr Golden Sabre JHP in a 33rd G-18 mag. I also usually have either my Glock 26 w/15rd mag or my Springfield Armory 1911A1 close by.

I also have a Remmy 870 loaded with Federal Buck Shot and Slugs very close by.

Primary is my carry weapon; it and a maglight are readily accessible. Remington 870 loaded with #4 buck at each end of house and 38 revolvers in the other bedrooms. 870s have served well in dispatching rabid raccoons.

I'll use my carry piece (.40), .38 ,.357 a shotgun whatever it takes. You may come in breathing but leaving and breathing is a different story.
