    Though many people only consider shotguns or handguns for home defense and close combat, there may come a time when a rifle is the only weapon available. The Box O’ Truth offers some advice on shooting rifles and other weapons in close quarters.

    A recent thread on an online forum discussed the attributes of a Handgun vs. a Shotgun vs. a Rifle in home defense.

    Several advantages for each type of weapon were discussed.

    I’d like to expand on one of those of the rifle, i.e., increased accuracy potential.

    Shotgun doesn't work so great in hostage situation.
    Rifle is easier to hit with.

    Great stuff....can't wait for the next ones:
    Handguns are easier to hit with up close.
    Rifles are loud in a room.
