    Since we're posting pics now, here's my "home defense" tools. These are the badboys I have lying around the house. I'm too lazy to get into the safe to pull out the rifles right now.

    -Glock 22
    -Springfield Armory XD-M 40 (match grade barrel)
    -Mossberg 590 Combat (ext 9-round mag, 4-round speedfeed stock, 6-round side saddle, ghost ring sights)

    I thought I'd share a pic of my newest toy. I picked it up last weekend at a gun show. This thing is freakin' beautiful and an absolute beast; I really like the crimson trace laser digital camo grips it came stock with. Even though many Kimber models are fairly expensive, you certainly get what you pay for with the craftmanship; it's tough to beat the quality of a Kimber, imo.

    Kimber Custom Pro Covert 2 (5" barrel/chambered for .45 ACP):

    My first gun I ever purchased was a Mossberg 12 Gauge Shotgun. I remember being thrilled as hell.

    My first was a Taurus Mill Pro PT 145. Bought off a buddy of mine. Was so good I bought another Taurus OSS 9mm. Then I got a Bersa Thunder 22 for my wife to learn on. My latest was a Taurus 327 fed magnum revolver snubbie.

    Mossberg 500 Tactical 12ga. Easy to maneuver around corners in your home, and I believe, one of the best home defense weapons out there.

    unless you live in the country, a rifle is a horrible home defense weapon and irresponsible to use one... you dont need it killing your neighbors as well after tearing through all that drywall.

    Get a larger caliber pistol for that, and pick your ammo wisely for the situation. Effective and safe go hand in hand here. you want stopping power, not penetrating power.

    Shotguns with some bird shot is great for this... then you can always feed some buck and even a slug first in case its not enough so when you get to the last shot you know they arent getting back up.

    yeah your right, but for a broke college student buying for the first time, the price was nice....and after some state police training i got pretty good with it.....the glock 45 is a night and day difference though
