    Shot gun or Rifle, Depends on the situation.
    close range i would use ether a shotgun or a carbine rifle, for long range i would use a normal rifle scope or iron sights, and a pistol as a secendary weapon.

    (SP12BK-5PK00) is one of the best double-ought buckshot defense rounds. One of these rounds is virtually equal to a nine-round burst from a submachine gun, with every round hitting!
    a 12g shotgun is the best short range defense weapon ever made.

    you must be joking
    seriously
    the only rifle I would use is a ruger 10/22 with a 50 round clip
    That is what I did for many years until I saved for a GOOD $$$ handgun

    Shotgun with #4 buckshot is a good way to go.

    I would hate to live next door to someone who decided to use a rifle over a shotgun for home defense haha! Just saying.. Unless you live on a farm out in Kansas somewhere with no chance of the bullet going completely through your walls and into a neighbors, I'd say a shotgun is the only reasonable choice of the two.. 12 ga.. Even those little sissy .223 rounds can go through some walls and a sheet of drywall or two..

    Ok, the last part was a joke..

    *runs*

    Hey Ram Rod isn't that the tactical Remington 1100?

    I was so glad to see Remington bring the 1100 back - what a sweet shotgun and in a tactical version no less.

    I keep a standard run of the mill 410 with buckshot, but the m&p 357 stays by the bed with gold speer hp.

    I voted shotgun only because I keep my .223's locked up all nice and neat and keep my .40 on a nightstand and a shotgun under the bed(mainly for my wife so were both gunning for a burglar, she's good enough I know she's got my back!) Anywho, its a Remington 870 Police Magnum with extended mag tube. Staggered .00 buck and slug everyother round. I don't think I'd ever opt for a rifle inside only because I have a close neighbor and don't want a round traveling through his house as well. If I was outside that's a different story.
