I already have a glock 40, but looking for more, can't decide between an AR-15 or a nice shot gun...

Any thoughts?

AR-15 is the best for home defense, but good luck finding one right now.  A good 12 guage pump with #4 or 00 buck is great for home defense as well.  However, they are limited on capacity and tend to overpenetrate.  Do you have kids, or neighbors?

the best home defense is a nice poodle.   little fcker will wake up and attack ankles and get the party started so you can brew a Kcup of coffee to get you alert before the gun fight. 

Stay in your room on the floor, calling 911,, if you know someone is in the house.  NEVER have a confrontation you dont have to have.  Stay low and waste anything that comes into your room. 

If you have to sweep house - then you come in LOW with the shotty at the ready, glock on your waist.  Toss a remote control across the room as a diversionary and then move in.  wear your body armor if you have any.

Shot gun. Little aiming, very intimidating.

You still have to aim them.  They're not magical shot spreading long guns.

never wear ear protection.  You will possibly hear that 'mouse fart' that alerts you to the bad guy.   He might be in hiding too - Don't run blindly into any room.   Time is on your side, particularly with law on the way.  You can give hiim the scariest "Sheriff's Department!" or other yell to let him know he's about to tangle with a grown ass man, to the death.  Also "say hello to my little friend" while racking the shotty and laughing hysterically has been known to intimidate.  Never give them "Please leave".   Instead try "I wanna shoot you so bad, my d*ck is hard".   That'll make them wonder if they really want to breach that door.

Actually, one of the first rules is to never give up your location.  Don't say shit, try to be as quiet as possible, and wait for the intruder to enter your POA.

Why would you choose a rifle inside a house?  Your target isn't hundreds of yards away.  Seems like anything with a long barrel would be hard to work with.

For your average person, a shotgun is probably preferable. I would personally choose a cqbr type short barreled AR.

Several reasons:

1.  They aren't hard to work with.
2.  Ballistically speaking, they are much, much more effective than a pistol.  Bottom line, pistols suck compared to rifles.
3.  You can acquire a target very quickly with an AR15.
4.  High capacity.
5.  With the proper ammo, the chances of overpenetration are nill.  
6.  If an intruder were to break into your house, and they were carrying a rifle, you will need equal firepower.

Remington 870 in the Marine Magnum configuration.

.

Nickel plated for lower maintenance, good magazine capacity, based on a proven platform with lots of options. It doesn't attract as much negative attention as the AR-15 type rifles, and it will be low on any ban lists.

Load with #00 buck or 4 shot and you're good to go.

Great choice.  Throw a little streamlight on there, and you're good to go.

RPG-7
Even if the intruder tries to escape with a car you can walk to road, aim and there will be nothing but piece of shit melted by liquid copper left.
Cost-effective, tried and proven, reliable, many options to choose from for grenade, no recoil, even yankee loves it although too full of themselves to praise it.

Can't see wanting to swing around a rifle inside a house but I'm not a gun owner so maybe you know better.  I'd probably go for a short bodied clip fed shotgun.  Can't see why anyone would still use a pump action unless semiautos are unreliable.

If the intruder hears, that initial "click" could be all you need.
