Hello guys hope your all good I have a Question so I have the Mossberg shockwave 12g and a Sig p365 sas and if I had to Defend my house and my family do you think I would be good to go. I mean I feel preety good about it. Just curious what you all think! Much love to all you out there and please do not leave your home with out your Weapon🙂
I think everyone starts out the same. The key is which weapon can you access first at 3:42am and which weapon allows you to get to your back up weapon. Plus what are we defending against, a “normal” home invasion or a mob of 800 with Molotov cocktails if it’s the latter nothing but a belt fed weapon will do.
In the year 2020 post election this is how you defend a home!
Three of these on the perimeter and your good to go!
I prefer the handgun in the nightstand w/light which allows one hand free for phone calls, shuffling loved ones out of the way, opening doors and it’s easier to maneuver when the cobwebs are being cleared from my brain. Then I get to my long guns if necessary.
Nice rig by the way.
I’m old school with 500 Mossberg Tactical Persuader and Kimber Pro TLE/RL/SS w/surefire x300 attached.
Like a handgun near me always & mossy 18 " with an adaptor for running 1. 3/4 oo buck & elastic stock holder for more rds.
Nice piece of hardware brother.
Go with both. Both would be good choices if you are competent and comfortable with them.
Not a fan of the shockwave for home defense because I’m not a fan of aiming from the hip (personal choice), but that’s just me. Looks awesome though.
Sig P365, yep roger that.
If you validate your proficiency at the range and practice regularly and you’re good to go there, you should be good to go at the house.
Is… Is that… Is that a bayonet?
Awesome, this reminds me of the M249 SAW I used a Crew Serve weapon in my days in the USMC. Very predictable and dependable.
@JamesR I haven’t seen anyone shoot one from the hip yet. There is even a young man who hunts deer in Canada with buck shot and he doe’s real well.
It’s the Indian, not the arrow.
However that is one scarey looking arrow!
Yes it is I have 3 of them
Thank you very much I love it. I have the Brace kit for it as well witch is NICE!!!
I am very!
I have a BRACE kit for it. So yeah its a nasty firearm
Always good to have choices. Nancy ordered the BYRNA Pepper ball Gun today. Now we may have to wait 8 weeks.
Sounds like you have some good choices and a plan. I believe it is what you are comfortable with and can shoot well. I have an sbr w/ a 42 rd mag , a HK USP 45 on nightstand & a Win SX3 on a quick access wall lock for close work. But those are my choices .
That’s a good question. There’s a bit more to it than just having the firearms. While they would work for a lot of things, more important are the tactics you plan to use. How the firearms are staged in your home are also important. Other plans, like what other family members you need to protect also play an important part. The loads you plan to use in the firearms play a part. Any defensive positions in the home play a part.
Have you checked the pattern on the shotgun? Which ammo do you plan to use. Dragon’s Breath would be a bad choice, 00 buck may be no better, how many walls would that penetrate? How many walls would the 9mm go through if you miss, or even if you hit at close range?
The firearms might be a decent choice, but how accurate are you with them? There’s just a lot more to home defense than the firepower. Have you replaced the screws in your door hinges and latch with longer ones that actually go into the studs behind the door jam or did you leave the regular length ones in that many people could get through quickly? Keeping them outside longer gives you more time to prepare and the LEOs more time to respond, which makes you a less desirable target.
Practice, practice, practice. If you’ve not patterned you 12gauge and only shoot occasionally you’re likely to encounter be the Dunning-Kruger effect ("… a type of cognitive bias in which people believe that they are smarter and more capable than they really are. Essentially, low ability people do not possess the skills needed to recognize their own incompetence.")
I have the Remington Tac14 and can control low recoil rounds MUCH better than full house loads, which I feel is just fine for home defense. I also fitted a green CT laser sidesaddle which allows quick target acquisition from any position.
I would say that you’re off to a very good start.
