I have several guns I am not going to list them because Obama might be listening but I was not really happy with them in a home defense roll. I wanted it to be completely safe and not to complicated to be fully loaded. Something that could be loaded in the dark by a scared woman if she had to but was completely safe around children propped in the corner of my closet. What I came up with was a Stoeger stagecoach double barrel 12. I put a stock shell holder that holds 5 high brass no.4s. You pick up the gun and you have your shells and you can be loaded in 5 seconds. You don't have to look for a key or bullets or have a loaded gun where little hands might find it. It has 20" barrels imp/imp. and handles well. I keep everything else unloaded and locked up.
