Our best Home Defense weapon....
Half Lab, half German Shepard.
GREAT with the kids
When he gets out, he has chased and brought down deer, so I have to keep him leashed when outside.
He goes for the groin, if a stranger enters the house. :woot: :woot: :woot: (just kidding)

Make sure you check your state laws about defending ones self in the home.It could get ugly if you shoot someone. As far as guns for self protection it doesn't need to be a large caliber like a 12 gauge. A 410 will most likely do the job. The fear factor alone of looking down the barrel of a shotgun may be all it takes. Plus you don't want your shot to pass through a wall and hitting a loved one. You most likely will be able to find a nice use gun without to many miles on it for cheap. Look around ... Either way you want to practice with you weapon and your wife needs to also. It also needs to be stored in a place that you have quick access to and children can't get to it. A trigger lock is a good idea if you don't have a safe place.. I have several guns in my home ..I am a hunter. I keep them in a safe in my game room. Good luck with you decision.

Shotgun by all means for close quarters shooting in a hallway or livingroom home invasion situation. Also low penetration potential. Lets say you shoot at an intruder and use a large caliber pistol. Potentially it could pass through a bedroom wall and kill or hurt a loved one. So I would buy the shotgun for in the house. As them escaping and running down the road I think a nice 30/30 with a scope would work :P

I believe it's a terrible thing, that a law abiding citizen. Needs to worry about being sued by a person who knowingly is breaking the law. By breaking into a home with the intent to steal or worse. We the people, need to join together and make it known to the law makers and bleeding hearts, and especially the scum @@#@!*% lawyers who go out of thier way to try and even get these criminals off the hook and money to boot. All burglers, or evil doers let it be known, you break into my hose and threaten to take the possesions that I have worked for. Or endanger my kids or my lady, I will protect and defend my property and loved ones to the end. I will give fair warning in the sound of the slide action chambering a shell into the shotgun. I will tell you to leave or else. If you decide to leave good for you. If not, then you better have hearing protection on. I will deal with the end results with a clear mind knowing I protected my property and family. If we dont protect ourselves who will.........JPD

I couldnt agree more. Im someone breaks into my house the better be able to deal with the consequences. The law stuff will works itself out. I cant imagine a jury would fine someone guilty for defending their family and possessions.

I was thinking, what if i make a sign to put on the front and back door that says. "homeowner is armed and dangerous" would that deter a home invasion? i could keep a light on it for when it is dark out

I would be found guilty of protecting my rights. This is what I am saying. What the heck happened to this country. How can it be wrong for a law abiding citizen to protect their family and possesions from a criminal. If I am wrong then I have the right to a trial by my peers. But I will not give in to criminals.

i always liked the "protected by smith& wesson" warning sign on the house but then you are advertising there is a weapon inside and those slightly smarter rock stars will "case" you and B&E when your gone.

less is more reguarding warning the bad guy. the ker-klunk of the mossy chambering a 12 ga slug is the best warning...


its not ill-eagle in pa!!

In a bathtub with that motor, I would guess 35-40 MPH. I doubt if the cop pulled him over for speeding though, he may have lost some of his load.

Ya know, that pic reminds me of getting pulled over while skiing behind my freinds car when I was 19 in a snow storm :oops: . Needless to say the cop wasnt amused.
