    I prefer a shotgun myself, but the AR-15 has a lot less recoil.

    Reliability, compactness and capacity, a combination that hard to beat. I carry a 40 cal. but at home I have a pump 12 ga. with a 357 mag. back up and the .40 to back up the back up.

    Aw, a macho gun nut thread. Why anyone would want a .223 rifle instead of a good shotgun with 00 buckshot for home defense is beyond me.

    I have two questions for those who claim they own a gun to protect their homes:

    1. How long have you owned guns for the purpose of home protection?
    2. When was the last time you had to use your gun to defend your homes?

    I would bet my life that the vast majority of Americans who own guns to protect their homes have never had to use them, and never will.

    Recoil? Holy shit, how many evildoers are you expecting to shoot at one time?

    As many as it takes?

    What a weak attempt to justify banning guns.

    Much better when using 00, or #4 Buck shot. But it makes a big mess.
