When I was young, the big debate was revolver vs pistol. Second strike capability, bad primers, clip or spring issues, feeding reliability, were all hot topics.
A TV crew went into a prison and asked the prisoners several questions. when confronted w a pistol they wondered if the homeowner had remembered to load it, did he cycle the slide, is the safety on etc. Yet, when a revolver is pointed at them, you can see the hollow points looking right at you, there are no safeties etc.
despite the presence of a weapon, almost all of the criminals questioned the homeowners ability or will to use the gun and their skill to hit anything w it. (Lasers can go a long way toward eliminating the second point)
Nobody liked the idea of braking into a house w a loaded shotgun but the most brazen either thought they could get to it before you or you would be too disoriented to use it.
Let's prove them wrong !!!
