    I like a shotgun and a magnum pistol for home defense. Nothing says go away in the middle of the night like hearing a homeowner cycle the action of a shotgun. If that won't deter a would be home invader the pistol says call the coroner and for really close encounters a machete says tooo late let me bury the body.

    IMOA these buffoons should realize that when they make a threat "We're gonna burn your house down!" that's intent and we know they have the means to do so. The loudmouths are setting themselves up to get fired on.

    I doubt I'd be able to hear the second one over the sound of rapid rifle fire.
    they'd maybe burn the place down, but they'd have to crawl over a pile of bodies to do it.

    In this state, the last I looked, attempting to commit arson of an occupied dwelling fell into the category of justifying lethal force.
    No you won't find it in most self defense quick reference sites.
    Research the statutes I did once comparing Arkansas to Arizona law.

    The first incendiary device I see the wielder gets shot if on my property.

    A .22 to the kneecaps, then a rope to the nearest stout tree.
    Rinse and repeat, and the rest will learn to leave that ornery old man alone! :mad:
    If they try a rush, my AR-15 will sing her song......

    I hope everyone has noticed that more and more of the protesters are armed. They want a firefight.

    Maybe what is needed is a few bodies in an area with a court system that will not throw them under a bus.

    I suggest a M4 rifle/pistol build or PDW with a decent RDS and a lot of training. You will need to be able to target and take out the fire bombers without collateral damage to a crowd in general in a highly dynamic situation with potential multiple targets.

    Fortunately it is likely the crowd will scatter when the first fire bomber is shot.

    Arson is one of the specific crimes for which deadly force is authorized under TX law fwiw.

    That's what I have Night vision scopes and suppresors for. Take out the real threats first,and then the secondary targets real quick,nice and quietly!
    Crossbow's & Compound Bow's work real good also.

    If one could shoot the firebug's legs out just as he's winring up for the throw....... "hot time in the old town tonight!"

    Think an old 12 gauges capable of slam fire and someone to feed you ammo, , or dueling(alternating fire) shotguns would be best if you could get your household occupants in a safe spot, out of the firing line. When no one is charging feed the tube.
    The Browning developed Winchester 1897 (M97), and Stevens 520, 620 cleared out a lot of overtaken trenches saving a lot of American lives.
    Tight area , blocked in, can not run, converging enemies. This is a battle scenario.
    Take a lesson from what has worked in that situation before, Bunch up back to back, let the guys with the shot guns face toward the greater masses of assailants, and do most of the random wet work.
    Worked in the trenches, will work well in a hallway, or when cornered, same scenario.

    I've got a Mossberg 500 in the hall closet for such an occasion. It's old and was made before they put plugs in the magazine. I've got it stuffed full alternating 00 buck and #2s. No round in the chamber though in case my daughters go exploring in there and find it. The old Mossberg still works perfectly and the previous owner had the idea of putting a bright orange bead on it for a front sight. I've never tried to use it in the dark but I suspect the thing would be visible.

    It would take perfect timing but I like to imagine a 12 gauge load of birdshot shattering the bottle, just as the arm is winding up for the throw. Now, THAT would be justice - charbroiled auntyfags.

    In reality, a triple tap to center mass or pelvic girdle, with a suitable, short-barreled, semi-auto rifle ought to do the trick.

    From my law enforcement days I recall how we went to great lengths to pick up fired casings and to take any guns into evidence. Of course, a bullet can be matched to a barrel and a casing can be traced to a gun from chamber, extractor and firing pin marks. Buckshot, and turkey loads do not leave much in the way of identifying marks that can be traced to an individual gun. Technically it can be done, (neutron deactivation analysis, maybe, but then they have to match that shot cup traces to that gun barrel to that group of pellets, at a cost of at least $10,000, the last I heard) so not much risk of tying a shotgun to the shooter. My point?

    Every shooting is going to be investigation by the local elected DA. Do you trust yours?

    High capacity handgun on the hip, AR carbine or pistol on a sling and shotgun in the hands, just my thought.

    When I was a kid we were not very sophisticated. As a teenager I figured out that #4 Buckshot was the best overall hunting round made. You get 21, 0.24 caliber bullets in one shot. You can kill rabbits and coyotes at 60-70 yards. They were great for ducks also, I once killed 3 in one shot, and that was before they got off the water. I am more sophisticated now, I just keep them in my pump under the bed. So, buckshot gets my vote.
