    round at short distances, and AR-15s and Mini-14s are lightweight and short.

    But it is not an in-the-house defense gun if you have neighbors or family, especially if you are such a lousy fucking shot that you need a high-capacity magazine.

    I have neither family nor neighbors so I keep medium caliber pistols handy, but IMO the best all-purpose home defense weapon (after your cell phone) would be a short-barrel, open-choke pump 12-ga. I figure if the sound of a pump action shotgun doesn't scare away an intruder, s/he is batshit crazy and needs lead therapy.

    YES WE DID -- AGAIN. FOUR MORE YEARS.
