    This is a problem I didnt think I'd ever have.

    A few nights ago well after dark my daughter says she heard someone walking on the back deck. Well, the back yard is closed off with locked gates so if someone was back there they would be up to no good.

    Wife says, "you better bring a gun if you are going back there" and I say "hell yeah Im bringing a gun":D

    So I go over to the safe and here's the problem.

    I had no idea what to grab. I stood there for a good minute trying to decide what to use.

    Do I take the Kriss, Space gun with a tactical light and freakin lasers and 30 rounds of 45. But if its only a cat and the neighbors see me acting all tactical with a long gun in the back yard they are going to freak out.

    Thought about taking the 60 year old Hi Power. That would be a cool story defending the house with a gun that was once used by the SAS.

    Thought about taking 2 guns, just in case I needed to slide down the deck railing Hard Boiled style

    Anyway, it was nothing. The neighbor was in his back yard making noise. (I really wasnt that worried)

    Anyone else have that problem? possible home intruder and you cant decide which gun to use?

    :D

    It would probably be the AR carbine, which is loaded with semi-jacketed frangible ammo, and has a PX6 Surefire light on it, with Aimpoint PRO optics.

    It is the most accurate and effective gun I have, therefore probably the safest for me and my neighbors.

    True story
    A few years ago, after news of a workplace shooting down in Cali.
    My boss came up to me all agitated and said "Do you have a gun!?"
    I asked "what's up?"
    She related the news and concluded with "and you're a hunter, you have guns!"
    I replied that I was indeed a hunter, and reminded her of my Marine background.
    "Margaret, can I be candid with you?" She told me to go-ahead.
    "If I were really and truly going to go postal" I paused for drama
    She was squirming, finally blurting "What would you do!?"
    Continuing, "I would go home, and open my gun safe" pause again...(for tension)
    "AND!?"
    "I'd start to shivver because I couldn't decide which one of my 34 handguns and rifles to use"

    She thought about that for a minute, realized she'd been had, called me a bustard, and stomped off to her office.

    It is always the problems you dismiss that play a role in your undoing; I suggest you increase your perimeter lighting along w/motion sensors and an IR security camera set-up, this will increase your decision making window of opportunity.

    I can never decide which pair of underwear to put on so that I could check the noise without getting cited for indecent exposure.

    I keep my 6" gp100 in my quick access safe (buy mechanical locks not the cheap electric ones) with Hornady .357 mag defense loads and a speed loader with the same to toss in a pocket on the off chance ninjas and pirates come for my lucky charms.

    Seriously though, I am very proficient with all of my firearms but have a go to gun to help prevent what the OP experienced. I also have a 9mm my wife knows inside and out for her to grab and stay put while I go investigate.

    Handgun with a laser. Helps the other half of the situation make an informed decision.
