    Well my M1 carbine falls in the Assault Weapon category. It has a high capacity magazine, a bayonet stud and is semi automatic. Of course it fires a pistol round and was made in WW2.

    You do a disservice when you refer to your rifles as "assault rifles"

    Technically, most "assault rifle" owners consider FULLY AUTOMATIC firearms an assault weapon, not a semi auto.... Unless you have a true Full Auto or you plan on assualting someone with your rifle.

    Its the same thing as "high capacity" magazines. Almost all of those magazines are STANDARD CAPACITY for that firearm.

    The Brady Bunch have done a very good job at changing the names of firearms into "scary" sounding names so people will fear them and thus support restrictions on them. I saw a report from them about the "proliferation of sniper rifles" in America........The were talking about your grandpa's deer gun.

    Please don't be sucked into their scheme.

    Not a big fan of revolvers. Slow to reload and they hold a small amount of rounds.

    I would prefer a 1911 or honestly a SBR sub gun so its easily handled inside a house but lacks the penetration of a high power rifle that may end up hurting your neighbor sleeping next door. It would be more accurate, quicker follow up shots, quicker reloads and holds more rounds in the mag.

    The only problem with the SBR is all the red tape.

    The reason I said it was the muilt-purpose side arm is that it also has the compasity to shoot a 410 shotgun shell

    12 gauge pump loaded with buck shot works very well as a home defense weapon.

    The shorter the barrel the better

    Hell have a shotgun and a 45 next to your bed that way you're covered.

    I would think that most home-defense situations last a matter of seconds.
    If you can't take care of business with a revolver, you're probably screwed anyway.
