Well, when it really gets bad, I call my neighbor, and have him shoot the Final Defensive Fire with the 81mm mortars over at his place. Of course, fair is fair, if he calls, I have to use the 75mm Pack Howitzer to fire for him.
Of course, we DO have to stay away from the White Phosphorus rounds during the dry season..................

I'd have to say a Remington 1100 or a handgun. I'm an AR guy but for some reason the 1100 seems like a better choice to me. I think most of us are more accurate and much faster w/ a semi shotgun than anything else. Well, I am anyway.
Now if it were in the open or on the street I'd pick the AR w/o question. An AR chambered in 300BLK more so.
home defense? had this discussion the other day. I can put my 9mm in the palm of my hand and it would ruin an intruders day if he/she were within 20-25ft.... And it is one finger print swipe away. My AR, if I could get it out of it's case in time says " lay down and don't get up" at distances up to a half mile on a good day. My AR isn't exactly tactical (working on one that will be), so whipping it around like a pistol would be a work out...AND a .223 round bouncing around my concrete house might be conducive to ME or my family getting zinged...bad idea.
But then I was fondling a weapon that says "get down and never get up" at any distance within my home. The venerable Remington 870. Black, tactical, never fails, and barks like a big dog.

if I had the money I would have a fully auto M16 with a rem 870 under the barrel, plus a flash light.
I would think although cool as hell a full auto especially an M16 (usually conjures up the image of a 20") would not be ideal in the home. Have you ever used a shotgun mounted under an M4 or M16? I have, its very cumbersome and far from user friendly.
I prefer either one of my pistols for home defense " 1911 or glock 31"... I have an M4 too but i have two kids and although i would use my M4 in the house if absolutely neccessary i worry to much about over penetration.
Somehow my FA Steyr AUG never comes to mind for home defense. I'll take my 1911 anyday. But the next time a band of MS13 members come a calling, then I will greet them with the AUG. And promptly move out of state and try to disappear.
