The best possible weapon to have in ANY close quarters fight IS THE SHOTGUN but your .357 will do and I find no fault in your choice of load.
Here is to hoping that non of us ever need it.

Tack
Amen, Brother.

The cycling of a pump action shotgun will indeed stop many BG's in their tracks. Believe me.

Not all of them, but many.

I don't have a shotgun.....or a rifle. I find them difficult to shoot because I don't think I've ever shot one that has a stock short enough for me to really hold one properly in the right position.

Don't let that stop you short!

Try some of the junior models. Slide action. That sound is unmistakable.

Does your son have a gun? Maybe a shotgun? In my opinion all family members must be fully able to handle all firearms in the house. If everything was perfect.

Whomever is facing the Bad Guy shoots him. The person behind the bad guy hits the deck.

Your son should be armed if he is 22 in my opinion. At least in my house the kids are armed and ready to rock and roll. But that is how they were raised.

I am embarrassed and sad to say I raised my kids pretty anti-gun. I didn't know better and wasn't educated until I was much older. My youngest son isn't interested in guns and he doesn't understand my new found interest, either. I have taken my oldest to the range and he already had a FOID card because his friends like going to gun shops and my son couldn't handle any guns without an Illinois FOID card. My daughter is getting more and more interested as the young man she is dating now likes to shoot, too, and has gone to the range with me just a couple days ago. But the youngest..............not yet.

Winds the people on here said everything that I would of, I am too slow I reckon. haha.
I have a .38 that I am very confident in not over penatration of the BG.




Serously JOsh? You are going to post that you shot your sock drawer. I mean WTF man. Did your socks piss you off or are you just that unresponsable of a firearm owner. Fire into a sock drawer inside your home, that has to be stupidest thing I have ever heard. Great god....

It made it through the front 1/2 inch of wood and then like a good 6 inches into a bunch of sox. The bullet was in 5 pieces just about all over that side of the drawer. I shot it from maybe a foot away.

Yes, I can assure you this sound is very frightening because I have heard it up close in the dark. Fortunately in my case I was on the same side as the guy with the shotgun and the story had a happy ending.

I would rank a carbine as #1, a shotgun as #2 and the handgun as #3 for home defense. Winds, Savage makes a nice little 20 gauge home defense auto with a short stock for smaller shooters. I believe it is the SA20.
