I can picture this guy in his closet.  You'd be paralyzed with indecision for at least a full minute.  The .357 or the .45?  The Remington pump or the double crow bar?

jehovahs witness protection: Penetration or knockdown power? Burt goes for the elephant gun.


Naw, a smart fella would go for the Red Ryder BB gun in the lower middle and the M8 flare pistol in the upper left: "Plink, clack-clack. Plink, clack-clack.  Plink, clack-clack.  WHOOSH!"

I know which loser YOU voted for. The one who is currently crashing our economy.


What are you talking about? The economy is doing great! Stock markets are at an all-time high, banks and corporations are flush with cash. Things couldn't get much better.

It would depend.

If the walls needed repaintig soon anyway, I'd go with the Remington. But if I just wanted to change out the carpet, than the .357. Even if the .45 is more powerful, .357 just sounds cooler.

DrewCurtisJr: squibbits: What are the other options? Wait and see what the guy is going to do? Call 911 and hope they get there fast enough?

Yes, in some cases when only property theft is involved.


What part of "home" are you having a hard time with?

I do the same for car breakdowns, fires, earthquakes, medical emergencies, witnessing a crime.

doglover: the person being attacked does not have a "duty to retreat."

This should be an international standard.


Don't be silly, this is america: you're supposed to call the cops for all your legal problems.

Guns are icky and dangerous and fire on their own and you'll die if you look at one.

Not a viewpoint.

If the crooks just sat him down and held him at gunpoint it's a firearm fiesta for them and perhaps a severe beating or worse for him.

Or is he going to outrun a bullet?


You seem disappointed that your scenario wasn't the actual outcome.

... in before the crybabies who say the homeowner shouldn't be playing god...

The homeowner didn't create the situation, he reacted.

If you intentionally trigger someone's instinctual fight-or-flight response you gotta take the consequences of the fight.

The burglar assumed the risk.  He should be forced to pay to fix whatever damage happened to the house, including paying for the cleanup of his own blood stains.

Marcus Aurelius: My .357 firing 158 grains has more than twice the power of a .45 ball. But I can suppress the .45, and that would be terrifying to any intruder. PHHHUMMMP. PHHHHUMMMMP. klink klink. The .357 on the other hand goes through walls and is deafening, plus it has 7 shots, so if they're counting, they're in trouble.


Trouble with suppressing .45 ACP is that even though the round never breaks the sound barrier, it's a large enough bore than a small column of gas will remain unperturbed by the baffles and still make a supersonic noise. Unless you have a very long supressor or use media, I guess. But that takes serious planning, and will make a mess of your carpets.

My Gemtech Blackside doesn't have an L.I.D. so it has a habit of stovepiping on tilt-barrel semis, like the 1911 and P220, unless you really strongarm it. So even though it's quiet-ish, it's not as reliable or accurate as with the suppressor off.  Hard to argure with ten rounds of .45, though.

I think I'd grab the P226 with three 20-round mags full of HST and call it good.  Though I recently picked up a 2340 in .357 SIG and that is a smoking round. It's also a pistol I wouldn't mind being seized as evidence since it only cost a couple hundred bucks.

Shotguns are too big for inside work, unless they're shortened.  Legally, of course.
