Jonnyrig, there is a reason I am offering gun advice. I think that the Derringer pistol can be an answer to the Second Amendment dilemma.
The Second Amendment can be amended to read....Ē the right to bear Derringer pistols...Ē
This will have the salubrious benefits of....
No more mass shootings.
Increased tracking and stalking skills for hunters who want to be successful.
More suicides by guns will move to the attempt column.
Major increases in the woodcock, duck and quail populations.
And
Macho hunters seeking apex predator trophies would have the fulfillment (should they survive) of going mano a mano.

The intelligent class does NOT need gun.

The st00pid modern gross materialists always manipulate the gross material energies inefficiently due to their terrible poor fund of knowledge.

The Center for Disease Control has been keeping records on this subject for many decades. And here is what they found:

Let's consider the situation when a home defense weapon is fired.

In ninety percent (90%) of the such cases, when a home defense weapon is fired, an intruder is not involved. Instead, the gun is used by a resident of the home to kill another resident of the home.

Of the 90% of the above cases, almost 100% of these are one of the following:
Husband shooting the wife
Boyfriend shooting his girlfriend
Young male committing suicide

See a pattern here? If there is a male living in the home, then people in the home will be safer if a home defense gun was not present.

I'm just saying.

I've got my entire apartment rigged to blow up the minute an intruder is detected by my highly technical detection technologies, which I can't talk about on the internet.

I was thinking about training rattlers for home defense.

My attempts with cats were unsuccessful.

zardoz...keeping it simple is always the best way to go. The .38 special revolver is what I trained at the academy with but we transitioned two years later to semi-auto. I STILL prefer the revolver. I keep a couple of speed loaders with it and can reload in about 1.5 seconds. I have always figured that if I need more than 6 I would be in deep poop anyway.

As far as limp wristing goes...another reason to stay with revolvers. I have seen more malfunctions because of limp wristing than anything else.

What about the M79. Accuracy not important in close proximity and boy those it ever deliver an explosive charge. Of course the collateral damage might include your tropical fish aquarium.

I still think of legal home defense as a "get off me" or "back up now" situation...

least chance of accidental discharge

Found this on the internet...

The basic truth: a firearm is not protection.

Situational awareness is protection. A Kevlar vest is protection. A firearm is a tool that provides the means to respond, with immediate lethal force, to a perceived attack.

A concealable Kevlar vest costs less then most concealed carry pistols, requires no situational awareness, cannot be used against you by an assailant, never harms bystanders, and is generally legal in all jurisdictions.

A concealed firearm isnít even a deterrent.

People carry a pistol because itís convenient, there is a culture supporting that decision, there is advertising urging that decision, and we all, at some level, want to imagine ourselves as a hero.

Has anyone thought of being nice to the intruder...? Maybe that would work better than a lethal weapon...Why all the hate...?

7SacredSophistries, be sure and curl up into the fetal position (after you spend a minute putting on yer vest) and be sure to ask the nice intruder to be sure and shoot you in a place protected by the vest.

If you're worried about getting hurt, hence the gun, why not wear a helmet as well? You're way more likely to need that.
