You will get a lot of different answers.  Some people will tell you to get a shotgun.

I always have a Glock 19 within arms reach for small problems and a Colt AR-15 for big problems.

Beyond what is the best home defense weapon. Whatever you wind up with become profecient with it. Get trained, learn how to break it down and reasemble it blind. Know your weapon as well as you know your own dick.

I'd prefer a handgun.

What are your thoughts on a 9 mil?

Yes, get some training and put a light on your weapon.  You have to be able to quickly id your target.  You don't want to smoke one of your loved ones by mistake.

I will eventually get a gun for home protection.

In getbiggers opinion, what is the best, most efficient gun for home protection?

As a getbigger, my hands and feet are registers as lethal weapons. But I thought it would be good to get a gun for home protection.

if it's for "protection" don't bother. statistics show your household will be less safe if you own a gun.

think about it logically. if guns are so great for protection, how come the US with by far the most guns also has by far the highest murder rate in the developed world?

.

For most things, a good pump shotgun is still hard to beat for most urban/suburban folks. The Remington 870 is a proven choice with lots of aftermarket stuff, and in the nickel marine configuration, very low maintenance.

For a pistol - Smith and Wesson 66 .357 (you can also use .38 in it) or something in the Glock range of products.

Glock 19 is 9mm and it's an exquisite tool.

There are LOTS of instances of responsible gun owners protecting their businesses and homes.

My home will be less safe if someone breaks into my residence with a gun and I don't have a gun.

Thanks. I'm going to go the handgun route!

Its really simple. America is a nation filled with murderous hebrews killing each other at rate close to their own birth rate.

there are LOTS of anecdotal instances of all sorts. i am talking about the big picture. statistically you or someone else in your household is far more likely to be injured/killed with your own gun than the chances of you using it to protect yourself against an intruder.

Pump shotgun. Mossberg 500 or Remington 870 hold both in you hands and pick which one you like more.
Other opinion is a decent handgun. Just make sure you get hollow points. They donít go though walls which is great because you donít kill people by accident.

Provide the evidence.

That which can be asserted without evidence can be dismissed without evidence.

Tell that to the girl from Riverside.  It's all anecdotal until some monster grabs your teen daughter by the fucking neck and forces his way inside your home.

Quoting statistics to those cold blooded m0therfuckers isn't going to help.  Life isn't an academic exercise.

Not sure if that is 100% true about hollow points, but they are the superior round for self defense and have less over penetration than fmj.

Self defense rounds (hollow tips) are made not to over-penetrate but you can't coun't on that 100%.  Plus not every shot you fire is gonna hit someone.

That's why you have to know your target and what's behind it.
