Shotgun vs Pistol for Home Defense

shotgun vs pistol

There’s always a done of debate of shotgun vs pistol for home defense. Stopping power, penetration, ballistics all come into the discussion.

We found a good video from Clint Smith at Thunder Ranch that talks about one aspect – weapon length. He makes a good point as to how far a weapon normally extends. Now I am going into dangerous territory here. I disagree with Clint Smith ( a gun legend).

Clint talks about carrying the pistol in normal shooting position. I was trained in and can shoot in other positions that would reduce the profile of the weapon.

We want to know what you think about shotguns vs pistols for home defense; at least for the length argument. Let us know in the comments.
