    Him: "Why anyone would use a pistol as a HD defense weapon is beyond me. An AR or a shotgun I can understand, but why limit yourself to a pistol cartridge from the get go?"
    Me: "Ask Massad Ayoob."
    Him: "Please quote an article where an expert claims that a pistol is the best home defense weapon out there instead of spewing baseless generalities."

    I quoted an article from you to him... but thought I'd give you a chance to answer him yourself.

    Thanks for the invite, bro, but you pretty much nailed in your comment in that thread the reasons why I think a handgun is best if you're only going to have one firearm for home defense. Obviously, availability of both handgun and long gun gives you more options.

    best,
