Depending on the jurisdiction some Americans have more/better choices than others.Everybody has a choice........... A 336 in 30-30 would not be mine.
As somebody noted, if that`s all you have...It will have to do.
Agreed.I'll soon be 75 and over my lifetime I have discovered the best form of self defence is "Minding your own flippin business":biggrin:
Hand gun perhaps yes but that a shotgun is easier to aim than a small carbine such as a 1894C for example is just a myth, at inside distances of up to 10 yards prob at max the spread of a shotgun is so small that you have to aim it just as much as a carbine...I'd say a 1894c with 38 special loaded in it is just as good if not better. Just my opinion.For home defence ..... handgun with hps, shotgun with bird shot, rifle in that order.
Handgun with hps, shotgun is easier to aim fast and shoot fast and won't penetrate walls.
Just about anybody can hit a target with a shotgun.
Rifle isn't as quick on the aim & rifle bullets penetrate walls.
