Hi all. I already know what I'd prefer for a home defense firearm but I'll ask the experts here. Because of all the nonsense going around because of this virus thing my daughter and son-in-law are actual looking for a good HOME DEFENSE firearm. I'd also like to add that I have 2-14yo grandsons. My daughter was raised around guns growing with me and my son-in-law is a ex-marine. Im ex-army but I don't hold that against him LOL. My 2 grandsons have nerf guns but no actual real gun experience. They were at cabelas looking at 9mm semi-autos. As I said I have my own opinion but let me hear from some of you.

People ALWAYS go to the wrong thing first. You know the answer to this pump shotgun 18.5” barrel.

WOW. No one seems to have ANY 12 or 20 gauge pump shotguns. Everyone seems to be sold out.

There is no excuse for them not to have one or for you to not have a spare. I mean no offense and dont want to come across as “that guy” but in the last 3.5 years guns have been the cheapest in the history of firearms sales. Gun shows were giving away 12ga pumps (That’s where I bought most mine). Adjust for inflation and they have been sickening cheap. So now you tell me not 1 but 2 former military are not prepared enough-wow.
Call JD, go to gunbroker, mom and pop stores. Get a cheap old 870/500 and a hacksaw. Look for used, take off, old parts. I built this out of boredom with a throw away barrel and receiver, take off stock and forend, 1950’s internal parts that were tossed for flex tab conversion on a previous build. I have practically nothing in this.

I’m definitely not an expert, but here’s my two cents worth....
They may want to look at some good revolvers. Something in .357 would be nice since you can use such a wide variety of ammo.

Both my daughter and son-in-law are at cabelas looking at their Walther PK 380. I even admit that the Walther in .380 is a nice pistol

Well neither of them listened to me. They bought two 9mm. A Canik for my son-in-law ( I guess being a ex-marine he knows better) and an H&K for my daughter. I just hope my daughter and 2 gransons can handle the recoil.

I would be happy they did not get the 380. As for the handguns they purchased, I hear good things about them. As far as recoil of the 9mm is not bad. My wife carries a Sig 365 with +p ammo with no problem. In the HK, I had a USP compact in .40 cal, my son loved it when he was 14 yrs old. He might of weighed 100 pounds. The HKs absorb recoil well. 9mm is the most popular round in IDPA look how many women and teens shoot it.

I agree. My son-in-law actually got the Canik TP9SF Elite Compact and my daughter the H&K VP9. When I found out what they had gotten I did some research on both and they both seemed to get reviews. Now just trying to locate some 9mm ammo mainly Hornady 115gr Critical Defense and 115gr FMJ. I also want to look at the reviews for the Firefly V2 flashlight laser sight.
