I read an article written by supposed thieves who outlined what deterred them from breaking into a home. I was surprised that they mentioned the family rott or pitt wasn’t a deterrent. The common theme actually was a home alarm system.
I’m not interested in your home security system per se, but moreso in what weaponry you choose as your home defender. Hand gun, rifle, shotgun…
I have and prefer the shotgun. Cheap, reliable. And there’s nothing like the effect of the sound of racking a shotgun. And as far as the load, you can’t go wrong with buckshot or a slug.
I’ve been to a few firearms courses over time. I’ve seen a shotgun slug push a level II bullet proof vest through the hole it created in the carrier. Unreal.
What’s your weapon of choice?
