the wife and i used to use our bcm carbines but we switched to the ak47 simply because if we had to use em its better to lose a elcheapo ak47 to the evidence locker for a few months than a really nice pricy ar15.

AR15 is the only rifle I own that would be practical in home defense...but one of my two shotguns would likely be the first thing I grabbed out of the safe.

I should rephrase that home and property defense I live on a farm in the ozarks

A lever action 30-30 is one of the few deer rifles that make a good home defense rifle. I have one but opt for the shotgun instead when I need a go to long gun.

I like my Marlin .44 mag. Got .44 spec gold dots for first 3, then .44 mag soft point 240s.
We occasionally have problems with large critters.

My rifles are a last resort home defense after the pistols and shotguns. But if needed my rifle of choice is the AR-15. But if we are talking close range I would prefer my AR-22.

I would have to say my SKS is the most practical HD weapon I have. I have a 10 round stripper clip on my nightstand and the rifle and bayonet are at the ready on the wall above me. It's more of my 3rd line of defense. Alarm system, a blue heeler that barks at the slightest movement anywhere near the fence, then the SKS.
