What is your primary defense weapon: POLL!

In another thread, the discussion came up on how many people actually use a particular firearm for their primary defense tool. This is not your EDC, as the answer will be 99.9% handguns. But for your home/camp defense plan, what is the primary weapon that your plan is built around? I know many probably have multiple choices, but primary.

Thanks guys, this should be very interesting and I look forward to seeing the results.

There are not very many human induced problems that cannot be solved by a 12 gauge pump and a 5-gallon bucket of 00 buckshot and slugs. So, yeah, for me, my Mossberg 590A1.

My Gold Cup, I’ve only got 7 shots, but like Jeff Cooper said, you’re only under-gunned if you miss.........
