Thanks for all the good responses. All I can say is that fear is not logical. I try to speak with my wife about it, and encourage her to learn and come with me to the store or the range. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to break the barrier so far. I wish she would get interested in it and go to the range. I'll keep working on her though. The guy at the local gun shop said to have her watch some doomsday show on the history channel. Apparently he knows a few other friends whose wives quickly encouraged them to buy guns after watching the show. I'll be recording it when I can.2009 GMC Sierra 5.3L running on E85

Ha. The show with the Mayan calendar and whats going to happen afterwards is a great tool. My DAD saw one and was looking and asking about 1911 .45s the next day.
If at first you don't succeed, get a bigger cheater bar.

AR15 with hollowpoints and surefire light for night and dark places. 223 caliber is just a 22 on steroids. I live out in the county and don't really worry about over penetration. Don't use armor piercing ammo for home defense, thats for roadblocks! Cool thing about an AR15 is you can build it yourself out of various parts to your personal tastes. Last one I built from various manufacturers components cost just under $500. Just use military surplus 30 round magazines in case its a gang thing...

For home defense i have my blow-gun with poisonous tree frog darts, backed up by a paintball gun with marbles in it, which is then backed up by a glock model 22 .40cal stuffed with Hornady Critical Defense ammunition... which is in turn backed up by a Remington R-25 VTR (which is .308 for those who don't know) with a tact light, green laser sight, frang rounds X31. Come get me suckas!
...I'm betting the paintball gun hurts the most...
..because it does.

I guess to answer the original question, we have a black lab for early warning in the house. then comes the 9mm followed by the 10/22 and then the 30-30 but thats getting a little big for shooting in the house. Also have a variety of large knives in the nightstand.David
