Yanno, if you got your family involved in

shooting sports, they could help defend you.

If you have an AK already, why not a pistol in a lower caliber.

Much easier to use inside a building, like a 9mm?

The shorter barrel of a K is going to give you muzzle blast/flip

to make it harder to get back on target, as well as

over-penetration, in a home setting.

If you are going for a compact rifle that meant for relatively close to medium range combat go with the Krinkov. If you're going for a more medium mid- long range go with the 74; is that what you're getting at? If I can recommend a handgun for home defense I'd go with a .45 with hollow points. Hope this helped.
