    Isn't that the one designed for armor/vest piercing? I could be thinking of something else, not sure.

    largely accepted as the most effective style of firearm at close ranges, heavier punch and more likely to quickly disable or discourage an assailant, unlikely to go through walls and windows and kill your family.

    however, i dont believe a firearm is a good method of home defense for everyone. personally i would not want to risk losing my physical advantages if a gun were involved and somehow got into their hands, baseball bat is much better because someone smaller will not be able to do much with it.

    May I ask why? .. I'm no expert, but in my head a gun seems like the deadliest hunting tool in comparison to a crossbow. Or am I mistaken? (Not to underestimate the crossbow )

    >.o I'm small, and I have to say I can do some damage with a bat.. but you need a swing radius to do the damage. Being knocked down would limit your range of motion. Knives though, never need reloading and are available in an instant with several uses. I keep one with me at all times generally, and have a large one in my bed with me as well as two more hidden within my room..

    ^ Ugh.. Entirely embarrassing, I must say. I think the worst I've done is a couple times I was so concentrated on making my mark with the M16/M4 (whatever I'm using at the time) that the kickback hits against my eye pro and I get a little nose bridge bruise by the time I'm done on the range.

    Also when I first handled the m9 beretta (and a hand gun at all actually) the slide back sliced my thumb open handling it wrong.

    Knives can also be overpowered, though, and it's important to remember that. No one wants to get stabbed by their own knife.

    ^ Just the same as guns can be overpowered but that's less likely. But between a knife and a baseball bat, I think I may feel safer with the knife. Between a gun and a knife.. I'd say a gun.

    Yeah, I agree. Although, with some handguns (such as mine) you can't fire even if there's one in the chamber if you just release the magazine.

    So, the best solution is to have both a gun and a knife. If someone somehow gets close enough to you to get the gun, you have a backup, which at that range...is just as useful.
