    A light is great if your never sure where all your friendlies maybe. I have a son that at 21 you never know what he and is friends may think is fun at night. Being able to illuminate the activity could be a life savor. Shot guns with extended tubes are more than adequate when loaded with 00 buck or slugs. Both Remington 870 and maverick 88 is available here.9

    With the roving angry mobs an ak with a 75 round drum, mepro 21 illuminated sight and tac light is pretty good. I would agree with the sentiment of never give up but realistically if I need more than 75 rounds I am in deep Kimshe.

    My AR is wearing a Vortex Strike Eagle zero'd at 50 and is good up to 300 with that zero. While I'm prepared otherwise my primary defense outside the house is locked windows, doors, and ultimatly LEO. If me and mine are safe inside the house I'm more than willing to make a call and wait for them to come and take care of the issue for me.

    With everything that's been going on I've also been looking at some less than lethal options to have laying around and came across 12 gauge pepperball rounds. I'm curious if anyone here has experimented with them and how those experiments turned out.
    You mean, just hurt 'em?

    If you handload shotgun, some 12ga rock salt loads might be great to disperse a mob without killing them.

    Up close those would be lethal and at range still might poke an eye out. I guess it would depend on the size salt you used? Shaker size might useful up close to blind assailants without killing. Maybe mix in some powdered habanero too.

    In Florida, that would be considered use of deadly force.
    So, you might as well do it right. Buck shot.

    You're right of course.

    Just can't get the image out of my mind though: a wide line of maybe two dozen guys with 12 gauge shotguns, advancing on the threatening mob and firing rock salt into it. Warms the old heart.

    My home defense rigs have varied over the years from the overly complicated and complex workings of a fully decked out AND legal suppressed SBR to my Glock. If and that's a very strong if, this individual or more than likely the group manage to get into my house my wife and I have a plan established. Lil Mama Bear will take her suppressed Saiga 410 with a mounted light and the dogs and lock down in the boy's room. She has a Bronc box in there loaded to the gills with more drums, her one plate carrier and pistol. Meanwhile I'll take my Ithaca Mag 10 Roadblocker and go about dealing with the threats as duplex loads of #4 and 00 buck see fit.

    If you just hurt them, they can still hurt you back. I am in favor of them not being able to hurt you back.

    Home defense firearms should never be suppressed. You want EVERYONE to know there's shots being fired.

    If there's more than one BG, it will likely send 'em running. It warns other members of your tribe that's something's amiss. It also alerts as many neighbors as possible that something is wrong nearby. And if they're neighbors worth a shyte, they'll come to your aid.

    Plus.... suppressors are just extra weight. And they make the entire rig longer than necessary. It's a home-defense rig: meaning you plan on using it IN your home. Those extra inches sticking out make it less maneuverable inside a structure.

    Here's how I see it; you kill someone whether it's justified or otherwise there's still a transition back into life ( not for them). It may not be normal life for me, but for my wife and boys. The last thing my wife needs are two boys crying while possibly bandaging me up, she doesn't need that while police are taking me away in handcuffs. My " tribe " is my wife and dogs from that standpoint and they'll already be aware of the situation. If you take the time ( which I encourage) to read my post This is My Castle you'll understand that a single gunshot will not resonate with the individuals who have taken the time to enter my home. My neighbors may hear the shot, probably won't pay any attention to it besides if 98% of them are the calvary I oughta have Stevie Wonder as my lookout. My SBR's are purposefully built for maneuverability in a vehicle so a floor plan specifically tailored to avoid tight scenarios won't be a problem. Talk about weight all you want I slung drill steel for 5 years those ounces mean nothing.
