    Or, you could use a short-barrel rifle (SBR). We would be better served immediately repealing the SBR restrictions.

    One of the best home-defense guns is a semi-auto shotgun.

    I plan on getting one soon.

    Still easier to swing around and sight in on your target in a house with a handgun.

    And I have had a lever gun since I was 12, over 60 years ago. Was taught early on that only single shot kills were acceptable. No need for a lot of rounds, or rapid fire.

    Yes. But, my wife is 5'4" and weighs 110 pounds. That would blow her away. A 7.5 inch SBR ar-15 with a flash can would have hardly any recoil, could be maneuvered around corners, could be shoulder-fired, and would not have the velocity of a full-length AR, which would limit collateral damage. IMO that is the perfect home defense weapon.

    When I was living with my Uncle Bill and Aunt Sandy in MT, all our meat came from hunting, and every season we would each get a permit for a deer.

    When we went out into the woods, we were only allowed 3 bullets each to take with us. If we used all three before we got any game, we had to hike back to the truck, get three more bullets, and then go back to where we were hunting.

    You learned accuracy in my family at an early age.

    Harder to shoot accurately.

    Do it when someone is shooting back at you.

    I can track a rabbit running full-out and hit it in the head more than 50% of the time. I do hunt.

    I prefer not to deer hunt with guns anymore, the whole ecosystem changes once the first shot gets fired in the woods.
