I see nothing wrong with using my 24/47 for self defense. 1 196gr fmj will get the 1st 6 through the door without issue. On a more serious note, I really can't see fireing even an AK indoors. A shotgun or big handgun will suffice. As far as an investment, AR's don't gain anything. AK's can, or should I say have. M1 Garand or Carbine can, and have. The carbine is a better bet. JMHO

Acreage, and as far as inside the home I've got a M1 .30 carbine. I'm looking for something a bit bigger.... Something to "reach out and touch someone" but without going to anything with a scope. ARs and AKs are a bit pricey now but looking a month or two down the road they may or may not be available.
