I don’t understand why anyone would use a pistol for home defense, unless money were an issue.
Easier to maneuver in hallways , doors , etc
You might need other hand for something important - scoop up young kids , rescue your Kruegerands , give direct pressure to control bleeding . hold the collar of Fluffy the Rottweiler , until time to turn loose .
Every. Thing that goes bump , or unexpected knock on the door doesn't imeadately become a gunfight . A handgun can be discretely held more or less at the ready if or until ready .
A case can be made , that if you have only One firearm for home defense , a handgun is most versatile .
Arrgh ! I meant to quote Dr Hair , and then comment below , but I screwed up .
But I'm too lazy to erase & re. Type .
