    This kinda shit makes me crack up thinking of all the booger brains who pick a pistol or shotgun to fight on their "home field". It's THEIR home and they pick the weakest option possible to fight with? Why not shoot support side or keep the weapon unloaded if the idea is to handicap your chances?

    Booger brain for using a pistol or shotgun? shotgun underpowered? Should i break out the 50 cal? Is that enough? Jesus, Ill take my picks any day over using a sbr in the middle of the night with no hearing protection.

    THIS^^

    My dad always stressed the importance of picking the best possible tool for the job and I try to convince my friends of this but most won't listen.

    When you have the home field advantage you usually get to prepare ahead of time. Prepare by picking the best tool for the job and give yourself the best opportunity for success.

    I'm not saying a shotgun is underpowered or a bad option but to be fair they're not far apart in decibel level and indoors they would all (pistol,rifle,shotgun) have a similar effect on you/your ears.

    Considering how common SBR's and Suppressors are today and the simplicity of use, round capacity, and light recoil a suppressed SBR setup with quality RDS, light and ammo blows the shotgun out of the water in terms of usability for most people across the board. Not to mention a can drops the decibel level significantly.

    Yes suppressed is way better. But a sbr indoors seems way louder to me then a shotgun. I just have seen what buckshot inside of 7 yards will do, and its nasty.

    Don't let the haters hate.

    You're not a booger brain, bro. There's a host of reasons why I keep a well outfitted pistol at the bedside and not a shorty.

    Hint: Noise is at the bottom of the ****ing list.

    Right right. I agree on noise not being a important reason in the decision process of potentially saving your life. Just for me its on the con list of a sbr lmao. I carry and shoot my pistol the most. It is with me most of the day. I am comfortable with it and I love its portability. I just get too irritated lately on here and come off like a dick.

    I keep my electronic earpro on my headboard in their own cubby. Would I have the presence of mind to wear them if I needed to reach for the carbine? I highly doubt it. Then again, if I thought of them I guarantee I'd put them on. Takes less than 5 seconds and prevents me from possibly shooting a loved one because I can't hear him or her talking to me and I just see a person moving in the dark. I'm not worried about long term damage so much as I am about the temporary deafness. It's bad enough I'll probably have tunnel vision, flipper fingers, and difficulty seeing if it's the middle of the night.

    I would much rather have a suppressor, but my state doesn't allow them.

    I keep a pair of range-style hearing protectors next to my home defense weaponry. YMMV.
