    What do you think of this proposition which combines tactics with the attributes of particular firearms:


    A handgun is better than a long gun for home defense because it is more easily taken out to your vehicle when you leave so that your home defense gun will not be propped in a corner of the bedroom for some burglar to steal when they break into your house.
    If your home defense handgun is bigger than you would want for carry, it may be left unattended in a parked car, sure, but it could be secured with a steel cable lock and/or trigger lock even inside your parked vehicle.

    If your Home Defense gun were portable --and I mean even more portable than a short-barreled rifle or shotgun or one of those "firearms" that has a pistol "arm stabilization brace" on it-- you could have it handy as you travel in your vehicle. It would therefore be available in case you encounter some mass shooter at some public event some workplace some shopping mall or whatever.

    And, if you arrive home to find that you are the victim of a burglary in progress at your residence you don't have to worry about your home defense gun being found and used against you. Instead, you have it available which gives you much more firepower than the smaller gun that you carry concealed.

    A long gun is difficult to use or even get ready to use inside a vehicle. It is also pretty much impossible to discreetly carry a carbine or shotgun back-and-forth between your parked car & your home if you live in urban or suburban areas and you don't want all the neighbors seeing you and freaking out or whispering about you.

    But a conventional pistol such as a semi auto that uses a magazine that goes up through the grip frame and having a barrel somewhere between 4 1/2 and 6 1/2 inches long could be ideal for this role. It could have a laser and or tactical flashlight mounted on the frame. It could have a muzzle brake or compensator screwed on its threaded barrel, or a silencer, or even a fake / dummy suppressor which does wonders for eliminating muzzle flash and greatly reducing muzzle climb during rapid fire.

    And it could have an extended magazine too--not a standard 14 to 17 round capacity, but a 25 to 33 round capacity! Even if that means the magazine sticks out a couple inches below the pistol grip part of the frame.

    Such a tricked out handgun could be discreetly carried between your home and your car in any sort of briefcase, purse, shopping bag, beach bag, athletic bag, reusable cloth grocery store tote bag. The gun could even be temporrarily tucked under your arm inside your jacket or coat.

    You can't do that with a 12 gauge riot gun or a 5.56 mm carbine, not even an SBR with a 9-inch barrel and the telescoping stock fully collapsed-in.

    Why not just carry a holstered sidearm and keep your home defense guns in a safe? My SBRs are in a safe if I'm not home.

    Your EDC can be your HD gun, but I see no reason to not have access to a rifle caliber firearm in a concealed, secure location for HD.

    I was going to post a picture of someone inbreed but I found all of the pictures horrifying. I never knew I had so many cousins posting selfies on the internet.
