    What Guns Do You Use For House/PD Weapons?

    I am posting this here because we do not have a general handgun area and this section gets the most play. I will start; most know I have a lot of choices at hand. What do I use for house/PD Weapons? I use a Glock 27 and Glock 19 in the house; I use a Bersa Thunder 45 for car/carry. Again, why? They are reliable and work for me. Regards, Richard

    Glock 26 loaded with Golden Saber +P is current primary, backed by KelTec P3AT with Gold Dot. Next to the bed is an 18" Mossberg 500A stoked with #4 buck.

    I've been flirting with a Kahr K9 Elite 98, but haven't made a committment yet.

    Ya' know, as much as I love handguns.........I think the best home defense gun has got to be a short barrel shotgun (18 or 20 in.) with a heavy load. I prefer an auto over a pump. Just my .02.

    I'll agree with Charlie on the HD gun......

    My primary carry weapon is a HK USPc .45. The same serves as my 'night stand' gun. There is a 870 and a S&W 6904 stashed in stragtegic locations though.......(no kids around)

    I do not like a shotty for home defense for one reason. If I answer the door and it is a police officer I do not want him/her to see a shotgun in my hand. A handgun I can hide behind my back. Regards, Richard

    I am with Richard but for more reasons. I never have subscribed to the theory that a shotgun is the best HD weapon. It may just be me but it seems a shotgun can be more likely taken away or pushed away in an up close encounter with a BG and my house has a lot of blind corners. A handgun is easier to maneuver and hide. I keep a defense shotgun with tac-light under the bed but I rely on my Baby Eagle with a Led-Wave Z5 light, and it is my current carry gun as well.

    The generally-accepted plan in "tactical" circles is to use a shotgun for fixed point defense, where you're behind cover (or at least concealment) and waiting for the intruder. The handgun is used when moving around the house for whatever reason.

    In the hands of a trained person, a long gun really isn't difficult to retain. But it is still a two-handed weapon, and is more difficult to manipulate when opening doors, flipping light switches, calling police, carrying kids, etc.

    Best plan is to have both.

    Once I get my CCH, I'll switch between my XD-9SC and my soon-to-be-aquired Sig P239. At home, well...my XD on my nightstand with a flashlight works for now. I have my Beretta and 1911 within reach for the Missus.

    I'd like to have a shotty someday, but we're in an apartment complex now, so it doesn't seem like I'd need it as much now compared to when I own a home someday. (Famous last words?!?! Lol! ) Plus, what would I do with a shotgun anyway? I don't hunt or shoot clays, so it'd gather dust!

    If something goes bump in the night, the Mrs gets the 12 gauge and stays in the bedroom while I check it out with the .45 in hand. A .357 mag is hidden nearby just in case.

    And yes, she can handle the shotty quite well. Better trap shooter that I am by far. So much so that I quit taking her along.

    Your wife, too?!?! Mine embarrassed me enough with her 870 that I told her she had to quit shotgunning and take up riflery! And gimme back my shotgun!

    Your plan sounds great. It's good that you've given it some thought. I think a lot of people try to "wing it," or assume that simply being armed is good enough.
