I use a 12 gauge Remington 870 pump for home defense. I keep it loaded with Hornady TAP FPD 2 3/4" buckshot.

As to why, well, I will just leave this little video here for you to look at when you want to visually witness and understand 12 gauge terminal ballistics:

ETA: I live out in the countryside, so overpenetration is not a consideration. Obviously, your situation may be different from mine, and you should adjust your weapon of choice accordingly.
