There is no "right" or "wrong" answer, since I'm seeking your opinion.
While I respect the power of a 12ga, and have one set up for HD use, it stays in the safe, while an AR stays out in an accessible location.
Pros of the AR:
number of rounds available
Ease of reloading
Accuracy is one of the main advantages. I can keep all my rounds inside a sheet of notebook paper well past the distance required for HD. A shotgun with slugs..... not so much, with buckshot? forget about it.
So, what type of long arm would/do YOU choose for HD?
edited to add: Besides voting, please post the reasoning behind your vote
And if two magazines of .223 hadn't disabled the other identical vehicle, what could he hope to do with 9mm fire?

I don't have an AR. I have do have an 11-87, but I choose to go with a riffle / pistol combo that use the same magazines (Marlin 45ACP or 10mm Glock based Mech Tech) for a small yard in a semi-rural neighborhood.

May I ask...what is the Marlin that shoots .45ACP? That sounds interesting, as I've been considering a pistol caliber carbine. Thanks.

Personally I have to go with pump shotguns for HD simply because of the fear factor they instill in Mr. BG when I rack one in the chamber with his name on it.

Of course there are now specialty home defense loadings for the 223 that are very frangible and limit over penetration. I would shy away from magazines filled with NATO regulation ammo…unless the government is coming down the street to disarm you.
