#1 Homeowner needs a 'show stopper' firearm. One shot and drop. I'm sure the readers here can provide suitable recommendations.

#2 The old which caliber is best argument. From my perspective whichever one you are proficient with is the right one.

#3 Stopper? 20mm and up, but recoil is a bear. Maybe a 10 gauge with bird shot, center of mass.

#5 The Taurus 'Public Defender' is a handy little .410 revolver that a lady friend of ours has. She keeps it loaded with 000 or buckshot I believe. Seems like a good option and would put an intruder down fairly quickly without worrying about putting a hole through your neighbor's house.

You can still get .410 slugs I believe, too. Those might travel a bit farther.

#6 My old standby for home and travel is a S&W 638. The neighbor keeps a .410 pump by the door. I think it hold at least 3 shells, maybe 4. Probably good enough to keep things in order.

#7 .410 Ball & Chain, or Bolo - 2 .357 balls connected by a 22 gauge wire. Distance and accuracy may vary but I bet house distances are fine.

#8 I tell my wife that my 7.62 Nato carbine is fine for home defense. Our walls are brick, so are the neighbors. I'm fairly confident of the JSP's ability two drop someone hit in the chest twice.

#9 For the delight of my eyes, my darling wife, I think a simple point and shoot weapon would be best. You know one of those old John Wayne style sawed off hand cannons loaded with bird shot and wood screws...I did take her to a pistol range and she is a natural, both eyes open, two hand grip, emptied the mag on a Glock 40 S&W all in the black with a large number into the groin. AND she put five in the head.

I don't think I have any worries...she likes the Glock, I am a Colt kinda guy.

#10 Granted shotgun is effective, but damn, think of all the spackling afterward

#11 and the Kilz for the splatter before repainting

#12 We've recently learned TW does drywall.

#13  I don’t know that the skill would be needed for my case, Besoeker. Back in my young archery days I was very adept at missing the broadside of the barn.
