    I recommend a full sized Glock in your caliber of choice. Mount a light and lookup some ammo choice topics on this sight for your ammo of choice.

    Good to go.

    Shotguns are great if you know they're breaking in,

    once they're in, I'd give thought to a dependable

    pistol, like a CZ75, Beretta 92, 1911A1, or S&W

    revolver...

    If your state doesn't have Castle Doctrine, the cops expect you to

    run into the bushes outside your back door and hide.

    Bring your phone, because then you'll just have to call the

    justice system which

    disarmed you in the first place, and beg them to get your

    house back for you. It might take a few hours, (or days) but

    what the hell, that's what you're paying a mortgage for,

    isn't it?:cool:

    This would have been better in the "Protection" area.

    Look at a remington 870 or mossberg 500 both come in short barrel defense versions both are reasonably priced, reliable, and effective.

    It does depend on location.

    In NY, NJ and a couple other 'Democratic Republics' about the nation,

    it's better for you if you have some bushes out back. I understand that

    plants cost a lot of money, with mortgages being so high, but a

    medium size pile of dry, bug-free leaves will do in a pinch...

    That's what the pistols are "in reach" for. If I don't have time to reach over to my nightstand I may have to throw back the covers wiggle and pray he has a sense of humor

    "Home security" must have a different meaning

    for me.

    The scenario is thus: Somebody is going to wake me up by

    breaking, I say breaking into the house I just spent

    months repairing?

    Guns don't even come into it. Those fools better take that silly sh**

    back to the drawing board, and take up knitting, painting, or

    moving to Indiana.

    I'm grumpy as a bear at 8AM, and twice as mean, let alone 3 in the morning...

    For some reason I can't read all of this unless I pull it up in the quote window. I don't know what's going on, so I figured I would quote it and see if it comes up, in case anyone else has this problem.
