Can't argue with that
People use what is most comfortable or easy to obtain for the most part, and then after spending time in shooting sports they refine their choice as to their favorites.
My top Ten list of Home Defense Toys...
10. Double barreled 12-gauge shotgun sawed off to one inch over legal limits using number 8 shot.
9. Short barreled pump 12 ga. with rock salt loaded inna first shell followed by number 8 shot in the next few
8. Any solid performing 9mm pistol. I favor glocks & Star Model 30's (15+1 capacity).
7. Any solid performing 10 mm or .45 pistol
6. Grendel Model 30/31 pistol in .22 Magnum. The .22 Mag has freakish firepower at close range and the Grendel holds 30 rounds...throw in a laser and someone is fulla holes.
5. Claymore Mines...do I really need to explain? Get permission from the Armoury Sgt. first...
4. One "Rolling Thunder" 12 ga belt-fed machine shotgun. (Class 3, baybee!!)
3. Calico Liberty 9mm with 100 round magazine.
2. Calico M-110 Pistol w/ 100 rd mag, with laser & flashlight on a twinrail.
1. My Tec-9 (AB-10 version) with 50 round mags stays under my pillow. Green laser is wonderful for day or night firing inside the home.
Did I mention that Sgt. Tackleberry (Police Academy) was my hero?? My other Hero is Sledge Hammer. (1/2 hr show of the same name.)
