See, that's why I want a triple barrel shotgun.

Yea, the AA-12 would be fun, but not HD shotgun. I'm defending, not demolishing.

Really interesting thread, from a theoretical POV (as it can only be here) but also quite freaky to contemplate the grass roots 'what-exactly-would-I-do-to-prepare' scenario. If you grow up/live somewhere where self-defence of the most useful kinds is illegal and therefore not something you've ever had to think about, I gotta say the concept is a lil unnerving

i use a SIG P220 for that very reason. in a half awake state my 1911 is too fiddly to keep at the bedside. all i gotta do is get the gun and pull the trigger. the heavy DA first shot keeps a half asleep me from cranking a round by accident. it is also far enough from my hand that i have to make an unnatural movement to get to it. this prevents me from messing with it by accident in my sleep. it is also out of sight of badguys.

i do practice getting to it while laying in bed.

You could always set up some targets around your room to get some practice. Sure you'll mess the walls up a bit, but what's a couple of bullet holes in the wall in exchange for safety and security?

This is a great post and a good Idea, I've practiced getting to my shotgun plenty of times that I've got the movement down, but that was always when I was awake, now I need to practice at night. If you use a shotgun, what rounds do you use/ combo of rounds. I have a mossberg 590 12 gauge with eight rounds in the tube, 3 birdshot and five slugs, I live in an apartment and don't want to penetrate the walls. I figure if the sound of chambering a round doesn't scare em off, then the sight of my scary tacticool gun will, and then if 3 rounds of birshot don't do the trick, then i'm probably outnumbered and in trouble, so i start unloading slugs. So, whats your ammo choice/reasoning behind it?
