I am also a layer guy. But no black rifle for me never got the bug for one.

My tact home defense guns are, KSG, Bonds, and a SVE smith with 16 + mag.

How do you like your KSG?   I'm going between that and the DP-12 that I posted up thread.  I've read of KSG jamming issues.  Just curious (sorry op, don't mean to jack your thread).

What specific bullet would you guys recommend in an AR for home defense?  Varmint type bullet?

Lots of good ammo available. And as long as you are not running solids or penetrators tips you should be good to go.
Speer Gold Dot 55gr., Black Hills TSX, and my current (because I got a killer bulk deal) Winchester PDX1 Defenders.
I have Sig Elite Match that I keep loaded up as well.

That is a horrible idea.
Everyone knows those Foodsaver bags suck!!!

Works good in this case cuz it makes it easier to open since you may have soap on your hands and you are probably without a knife for opening that sucker..... :twocents:

300 blackout with a 7.5" barrell and suppressor.  Subsonics or supersonic with the right ammo and a 30 round mag will get the job done just right.  I couldn't agree more that a rifle has superior  fire power.  With that said, a pistol is better than nothing and can be very effective.   

Most important message I took from this video is practice and get your mind right.  It should be easy if the time ever comes.   :tup:

Lots of good ideas in this thread.
I may have taken it to excess in some mindsets. But it works for me. It is easy to over think self/home defense.
My friends that hunt and shoot understand the extent I go to cover most scenarios I can think of. A couple of my more liberal sisters, would think differently if they knew there was a
XD mounted under the living room coffee table or that those full length mirrors throughout the house held secrets.
LOL

The guy watches too much tv.

Home invasions in Washington and Oregon are extremely rare. A criminal staying around for a gun fight is even less likely.

Handgun with a light is all you need.

lol.. After your first gun fight get back to me on what you need.. if you still can.

I'll always take my AR with a 30 rounder over a pistol if I can. Real life experience teaches you this.

A handgun is just to help you get to a rifle, if possible
