These discussions about the best HD firearm go round and round. I think most of us would agree that any weapon is better than not having one. There are pros and cons to each of them. As someone else noted, I have a handgun within reach that I would use if necessary to get to my shotgun, which is a few feet away. I have a Beretta 1301 Tactical loaded with Federal Flight Control 00 buckshot. At ranges out to 10-15 yards, the pattern looks like a slug, so maybe the size of a half dollar. I have the 9 pellet version, but I've heard that the 8 pellet pattern is even tighter. Unfortunately, both are tough to find these days in a world of relatively scarce ammo.
Excellent posting my Friend and very true as well ! 'G' Thank You (y) (y) 馃嚭馃嚫馃嚭馃嚥

I think it depends totally on your home situation. While I have a nightstand pistol, my shotgun is kept close to the Lanai slider so I can (initially) fire two rounds in the air over our lake to scare off potential assault teams approaching by Zodiac per our President鈥榮 advice. :sick::ROFLMAO:

I have my AR loaded and ready in my unlocked safe if I expect multiple invaders.
He said off of your balcony...not over the lake (which will pollute the water). If you don't have a balcony, you need to build one...using recycled material and non powered hand tools only. "if there's ever a problem, just walk out on the balcony here, walk out and put that double-barrel shotgun and fire two blasts outside the house,'"

He also said to blindly fire a shotgun through your front door....which may surprise that girl scout troop selling cookies door to door.

Shockwave in the truck, Rem 870 with 18 inch barrel and extended mag tube in the house, and a double barrel coach gun in case I feel real fussy. And a 1911 .45 by my bed

The exposed Hammers ? Yes They are really Neat ! I have one from England a black powder double .. One side works , the percussion on the right barrel not as yet

Both need a good cleaning in the tubes .. Quite a high end maker , just neglected in the functioning . The furniture is real nice also .. (y) (y) (y)(y)'G'

Googled it - Vintage mid - late 1800's / England !

YEP ! Mr. Rick / - ' I Hollis & Son ' Maker .. I Picked it up on spec' from an Antique Shop going out of business . All decent Walnut , with some engraved scrimshaw both sides . This A Very Interesting Piece .

Double barrel 12G / Good Lock up . Double triggers , left barrel actuation still works . Right side is locked up. .A strip of metal under the trigger guard , that goes half way back under the butt stock .

Under there also a Circular Brass Imbedded piece . The double barrels are joined along the top with a heavy piece of semi curved steel . The individual front sights look flat and possibly white paint ? ..;)'G'
