Handgun is for pre-need concealability and for fighting one's way to their long gun. Rifles are great for standoff reach out address distant threats, but a major concern regarding over penetration in an urban setting.......maybe not in the middle of Bum Fu_k Nowhere. Shotguns are great for taking care of business in close quarters/urban environs. For close quarter threats, I prefer bullpups/shorty shoty.......ala IWI TS-12 or Shockwave 590M mags with lasers and EoTech Holographic optics. Mags allow selection/switching of appropriate loads in dynamic scenarios and handling multiple threats. Limiting one to only a single platform is unwise. At all costs, never enter a fair engagement, only with overwhelmingly devastating superiority.What do ya'll think is best for HD?
I think Shotguns have a better incapacitation chance, but AR-15s have pretty low recoil and are useful against multiple attackers. I've heard people argue for Handguns, so that you can have a free hand for manipulation/calling 911. I wanted to see what all ya'll thought about the subject.
