    Looked and didn't find one so I figured I'd start it seeing as there's more than a few on here that love their guns.

    First one I've personally owned, nothing fancy at all, H&R 12-Gauge Pump. Can't wait to put some shells through it though! Pardon my cluttered table and nosy dog.

    View attachment 1527 I Just landed one of these! Awesome Firearm.
    DPMS Oracle .308
    The .308 Oracle™, much like it’s 5.56mm little brother, is one of our most
    popular rifles due to its compact size, rugged military carbine features and
    .308 firepower. Just add optics and ammo and it’s ready to hunt or turn heads at
    the range. 16" HBAR Chromoly barrel.

    Picked it up from a Paramedic that owns a gun shop. I figured he would at least treat a brother right. BSquared Firearms.
    Can't wait to take it to the range.

    Lol I figured as much, just giving you a hard time.

    The attachments don't work for me but I'm on tapatalk. Looked it up real quick and that's a good looking weapon. Looks like some fun shooting.

    I'd eventually like to own a "assault rifle", preferably build my own so I can really learn the weapon system but a G19 and CCW is first on the list.

    Actually bought the shotgun after someone tried to break into my home twice. First round is dove shot. The rest are 00 buck shot if they decide they want more.

    Here's hoping I never have to use it for the reason I bought it.

    I've been looking into getting a hand gun. Need to go to a shop with a range and put in some time. Either 9mm or 40. Thinking either Sig, Glock, or Springfield.

    Need to get some money first and that's after I buy a GPS unit.

    I hope you never have to either. I have not gotten a chance to shoot this at the range yet. But I really got a sweet deal on it. Bryon makes his own weapons as well. (The Paramedic I mentioned before.) He and I flew together so I know I was getting a good deal. Have fun with the shotgun!

    Some may not agree but my goal is to defend myself and my property, not take a life, which is why the first she'll probably won't end a life but it'll sure hurt like hell. The rest are all business. I'd be the one to shoot then start helping once the threat was mitigated.

    I will have to check him out. Not the first time I've heard that store mentioned before.

    Me not paying close enough attention ended up with 100 shells of dove shot. Lookout clay pigeons, here I come!!!

    @DesertEMT66 definitely shoot both the 9 and 40 before you buy one. I'm not a fan of the .40, it's too snappy for me to shoot consistent groupings.

    We had a guy enter our home once. My daughter and wife have been told aim at the wall and squeeze off a round. Let the dogs out of the kennels and then shoot at what ever moves toward you. I figure if they are dumb enough to be around and approach you after pulling the round off with a 12 g. They must want to die. As far as Bryon goesyeah contact him. His facebook page has more of his weapons than his website. Tell him Trez says hi

    That's one of the reasons I'm straying away from the 45. Yeah it's a bigger round but it's a lot harder to stay on target with it.

    Playing that game can land you in hot water. I hope a now disfigured from bird shot criminal doesn't sue you.

    Stand your ground law here. You're cooked if you do cooked if you don't. If you kill them their family comes after you, if you don't they come after you. Every one of my home invasion attempts is documented with 911 calls and written statements, if they want to lynch me for shooting someone on their third attempt to enter my home I'll gladly stand on the stand and tell my story.

    The way I was always told by some LEO friends is to make sure there is only one side of the story to be told.

    That is... morbidly hilarious.

    I've got a Remington .308 back home for hunting and whenever we get out to the larger ranges. I am not a fan of the .45 for self defense, but it is fun to shoot. Perhaps for someone with the wrist and hand strength and dexterity to efficiently and effectively double tap, but I certainly can't unless I'm on a .40 or a 9. That said, I choose the .40. Its a good middle round, can still pack a punch, and still has plenty of quality options (though I will say Walther won me over years ago).

    About home defense, I've had my decision made for a few years now. First, no warnings, and certainly no warning shots. A live round is a live round, and no one can predict where that "warning shot" will end up. Could be a thud into the wall, could be a gas line, could be the dog, could be the daughter. While you were trying to scare off the first attacker by giving away your position, the second attacker was flanking you or running into the room of your loved one(s). That said, you shoot to neutralize the threat. No buckshot, no blanks, no rubber, no leg shots, no arm shots, no damn warning shots. The attacker will receive 2 rapidly placed round to the thoracic cavity. If they continue to be a threat, they will receive 1 round to the head. Once all threats are neutralized, 911 will be called (if it has not already), provided my name, the address, the quick story, and the number of casualties. I will remain on the line as I assess all casualties, triage as indicated, and provide what ever treatment I can to those who do not present obvious signs of death. If I can't prove that the attacker is deceased secondary to trauma instead of an arrhythmia from a pre-existing condition, I will do compressions until EMS arrives.

    A friend of my mom always bragged about his guns. One day he had told her that he always keeps his bed-side handgun loaded in this order: blank, scatter, scatter, the rest normal bullets. Folks, if you do not trust yourself to make a decision, be it right or not, on that first shot, then you do not need a lethal weapon in your hand.

    I agree with the majority of your post. One question I do have is why no buck shot? A 12 gauge 00 buck shot at the ranges we'd be dealing with in a situation is very capable of killing a human being. I use 2 3/4" shells for the higher velocity since, despite what many say, the only difference between a 3" and 2 3/4" shell is the amount of pellets, not the powder. Again, with the ranges you're dealing with in a home invasion you're going to punch a tennis ball sized hole in whatever you hit since the shot won't have time to spread even with a cylinder choke.

    I'm personally not a fan of handguns as a home defense weapon but everyone has their own opinion and is absolutely entitled to it.

    I will say that after further thought the first round of birdshot has been replaced with another 00 shell.

    Personal preference, really. For one, if I live through this I would like to still have 4 walls to my room, you know? Secondly, speaking of close quarters, I'd prefer to have a hand gun or a collapsible stock assault rifle. I feel more comfortable at corners and in tight spaces with them then I do with a shotgun in general. Not to completely disregard the tactical use of shotguns, I'm just saying I am not a fan of them.

    My doomsday weapons are a boot knife, a Walther .40, and a built AR15 with collapsible stock, 16" barrel, and an ACOG with iron or red dot on top. I will use this with a smile from 1 to 300 yards.
