    9mm Walther PPQ loaded with 15 rounds of Remington Golden Saber 124gr +P and a Surefire E1B that I carry daily with the pistol. There are plenty of other weapons around, but my chances of needing to grab them are pretty much nil. If my training with my chosen defensive pistol doesn't save me, I'll be dead before I can switch weapons.

    I did try the whole Home Defense shotgun idea for a while as well, but found that it took a lot more training than I had time for to train on a third weapon platform. I dedicate enough time to Muay Thai, my job, and my family that it's hard enough just to make time to shoot pistols, so I use the same method I carry for protection for home defense so that the skills I develop translate over directly.

    Hell, what do you know about firearms?

    The Ruger 10/22 auto reloading target rifle. It'll be chambered for .22 caliber bullets. I am buying spare magazines. No prenium bullets.

    I don't know much, but I honestly don't care.

    Yes.

    There are no less than seven loaded pistols in two safes in my bedroom.

    I prefer the .357 for home defense. its loaded with 180 grain buffalo bore jacketed hollow points.

    My wife would probably grab her cz75.

    And lo, Kano looked down upon the field and saw the multitudes. Amongst them were the disciples of Uesheba who were greatly vexed at his sayings. And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".

    Your wife has excellent taste, scrapper. My experience with the entire CZ-75 line has been EXCELLENT. Very accurate and easy to shoot pistols. I'm not a revolver guy, but if I was it'd be a .357 as well. Perhaps in the future (but I've said that a billion times and still haven't purchased a revolver of my own).

    I have a swiss army knife and two insanely heavy electric guitars within arms reach of where I sleep.

    In all honesty, I don't think I'd have the guts to use a knife, so I wouldn't pull it on anyone. I'm not so squicked by the idea of battering someone with a guitar, though. I've accidentally hit someone with one of them before, and it hurt them, so I think it would be an easy "get the frack away from me" move.

    etali,

    For the sake of your fingers, I'm glad you wouldn't pull a Swiss Army knife out to fight with.

    Good point! I hadn't considered the practicalities, since I wouldn't want to use it anyway. I just looked around and that was the first "damaging" thing I saw. I live in the UK so guns aren't exactly common.

    Sadly on the way to the bedroom there's the kitchen and the "weight room", so no matter what door the robber breaks in through, they'd have an opportunity to arm themselves nicely...

    Hmm, this thread is making me paranoid.

    So ditch the U.K. and come over here to a REAL country, where the people are treated like adults. That ought to help with the paranoia. ;)

    Sir, that is a Ruger 10/22. It is not a military pattern rifle. It is hard to reload quickly compared to one. It fires .22LR which is unlikely to incapacitate an assailant unless you shoot him in the face, or dump the 10 round mag center mass into someone which could increase the chances his attorney could make it look like you used excessive force in court.

    It is a fine rifle but would be an unorthodox choice for self defense.

    Can you reccomend a firearm for me then? I'd prefer something that doesn't KILL, but would make them unable to do anything for awhile.
