You don't have a revolver or a shotgun. That's a crime in my book.

Commonsense dictates protecting one's loved one, before they become cannon fodder. Depend upon no one to do the distasteful task before yourself. Such is your task, especially in the world of today, due to economics. Millions want what you have, such as you have, if you still have a home. Shortly, defending what you have, shall become coveted by many, so be prepared to repel all "comers," or you may be lulled into complacent death. Wish I could paint a pleasant picture of America today . . . cliffy

It's 3am in Michigan and it sounds like ethanol was involved, KoB...

I kinda agree. These teach A LOT about shooting you use with all your firearms. A good DA revolver teaches you trigger strength, concentration and feel (if you take the time to get good at it - but you can do it dry firing, too). If you get a shotty, get a pump or o/u and go bust clays. You can't believe how much fun it is and what it teaches you about gun handling. It's not very expensive, either. Eventually, you will want a 1911 to enjoy the caliber and platform. A match made in heaven...

Revolver, shotgun, lever action, or a long range shooter. It is fun to cover all the bases but if you don't know what you are missing then you aren't really missing it.

I think the first response was right on the ball...DSAPT9 is correct. You've got a pretty good toolbox there, but you're missing a major tool. Need a shotty, brother!

Maverick 88/Mossberg 500/Remington 870 for the shotgun.

A 4"-6" .357Mag revolver such as a S&W 686/Ruger GP-100

What am i missing?

Depends on what your goals are. If your focus is narrow, you probably have too many.....(I mean that in that having too many might slow you down trying to decide which one is suitable for the present crisis.:evil:)
If you focus is wide, you can never have enough.:D

Hmm Maybe i should add a BUG.

You guys think trading the mauser 98 RC and 100 rounds of ammo for a Beretta 21A .22lr would be a decent trade?

Well if you don't want one you aren't missing one, but you did ask a bunch of strangers what gun you are "missing" and referred to your guns as "tools." Then you showed us a half filled tool box with no "hammer" in it.

How about an AR15 or a 17HMR bolt action? Or a nice Savage rifle (shoots circles around that Remington).

Ever try intercepting a duck with a .22?

The 12 gauge shotgun is probably the most versatile and effective close-quarters weapon (0-100 yards) ever created by mankind.

Why try to stop somebody at close range with two or three shots from a Glock when you can just shoot them 24-36 times with the same amount of effort?

I won't even comment on the .22LR mousegun. :)

A .22 doesn't work all that well on a squirrel that won't hold still. While a .17hmr works even better on the ones that do.

A shotgun is one of the BEST HD tools you can have when you're half asleep an' someone's kickin' in your door.

Beyond that - you've only one of each. Shucks, son - I've got more in ONE caliber than all of yers combined! :D

Because you can't hunt for birds with either as well.

Take the advice, get a 12 gauge. Seems to me though that you were just interested in telling everyone what you've got instead of taking the advice you asked for.

If you decide you want a shotgun I've got a Saiga 20 gauge I'm willing to part with.

"Take the advice, get a 12 gauge. Seems to me though that you were just interested in telling everyone what you've got instead of taking the advice you asked for."

Yea obviously since i have so much cool ****. *sarcasm*

I can hunt birds with either .22s

Shot guns hmm, great for HD especially if they grab one of my family members hostage style.
ANd they are soo great capacity wise, i mean 8 shots then i have to load each round individually again to shoot again, so what am i gonna wear a shotgun shell vest or a fanny pack when i hear a bump in the night?

Where as with the ak i just grab a mag or two and stuff them in my pocket?

And as someone pointed out, i don't have THAT much stuff, so there is obviously more that im missing that could be recommend instead of a scatter gun.

Saiga 12?

It has detachable box magazines.... so that makes it more practical.

What you guys think?

B4S, you're really lowering yourself here, bud. If you are so limited in your tactical thought process that you don't see the obvious niche of a shotgun, then you need to go back out to your ride, jack up the tunes until the trunk rattles and just leave those of us serious about firearms alone.
Rather than listen to the sincere recommendations of some obviously VERY experienced folks here, you want to rant on with your juvenile view of an AK being a great HD weapon.
Okay - I'm not going to stoop and say what I REALLY think about you, so suffice it to say that *most* gun savvy folks understand that rounds with a propensity to over-penetrate are the absolute WORST thing to use in a HD scenario, since the object on the other side of the wall that your round WILL penetrate after passing through the perp is very likely to be one of your family members.
So, please - either try to listen and understand the reasoning, ask civil questions - even discuss the "why" of it. Or just go on back to the hood - because frankly, 'tudes like yours scare me due to their obvious lack of thought and maturity.
