I recommend a full sized Glock in your caliber of choice. Mount a light and lookup some ammo choice topics on this sight for your ammo of choice.

Good to go.

12ga pump or semi auto is as good as it gets. those saiga 12ga semi-autos with the drum are a lot of fun!!

Shotguns are great if you know they're breaking in,

once they're in, I'd give thought to a dependable

pistol, like a CZ75, Beretta 92, 1911A1, or S&W

revolver...

If your state doesn't have Castle Doctrine, the cops expect you to

run into the bushes outside your back door and hide.

Bring your phone, because then you'll just have to call the

justice system which

disarmed you in the first place, and beg them to get your

house back for you. It might take a few hours, (or days) but

what the hell, that's what you're paying a mortgage for,

isn't it?

This would have been better in the "Protection" area.

Look at a remington 870 or mossberg 500 both come in short barrel defense versions both are reasonably priced, reliable, and effective.

It does depend on location.

In NY, NJ and a couple other 'Democratic Republics' about the nation,

it's better for you if you have some bushes out back. I understand that

plants cost a lot of money, with mortgages being so high, but a

medium size pile of dry, bug-free leaves will do in a pinch...
