Check out this well thought out article from UrbanSurvivalSite. If you have a firearm for home defense, you’re already far better off than the average person. There’s no faster way to scare off a burglar or take down an intruder. But what type of firearm do you plan on using? Most people think any firearm will do, but the truth is that many firearms are not ideal for home defense scenarios.
To defend your family during a home invasion, you need something that is reliable, easy to maneuver in close quarters, doesn’t need to be reloaded very often, won’t penetrate walls and endanger family members, and accurate over long distances (such as down a hallway or from one room to another). Unfortunately, that rules out quite a few firearms. Check this list to see whether you should upgrade to something better.
