I live in condo style apartments and have neighbors to worry about that are only two sheets of drywall away. From the tests I have seen after two layers of drywall bird shot will not penetrate paper.Some people say it doesn't have enough knock down power to be effective but I can say there is no way I am going to take a load of number 7's at any range let alone under 30 feet.

"I use a 12 gauge with 7 shot. I live in an apt complex and have to make sure to the best of my abilities if I would have a stray round it is not going to hurt a neighbor. I also have one clean shooting lane that leads up the stairs in my house. I was taught to draw a line in the stand. This means find the point at which you consider the threat a danger to your family. You don't want to have to think about it when everything is crazy all around you. Mine is that staircase. One foot on it and I am going to pull that trigger. As to the watching your six this is my plan. First I have a big lab that sleeps in my room with me. He will bark at the sound of the lock turning. I know because I try to sneak in on him and my wife and cant even get the key out of the dead bolt before he is barking. If I believe someone is in my house after being awoken by lab I am having my wife calling 911 and staying up stairs armed. While my wife is on the phone with 911 I am going to yell I am on the phone with the police and I am armed. I will defend myself if you don't leave. If he continues to the stairs I will yell stop or I will shoot. All while on the phone with the 911 operator. In WI you have the right to defend yourself from harm. With doing it this way everything will be recorded by 911 and admissible in court. Now with that said it all could happen to fast for the phone call. I just hope I am never in this situation and if someone does try to break in my lab is on top of his game."

That being said, I have a Glock next to me and my 18" barreled 870 with a selected assortment of slugs/00 Buck and additional rounds on the Blackhawk stock w/tac sling nearby. Those with longer guns need to take a run through their own home with the weapon as if they were approaching an intruder. At every corner stop and look at where your barrel is and think where that person may be hiding. With a long gun the first thing through that door is your barrel and it is very easy for it to be knocked away from you in CQB. Learn how to "slice the pie". If you dont know what it is, learn it. Practice this throughout your entire home as if you were already home in various rooms or just entered your home.
Always sleep in shorts with pockets...regardless of "her" requests :) Its a place to put the above mentioned items in a hurry.
Always have a plan and share it with others in the home. Being a cop living where I work I guess I've thought things through a bit more than others. Its not complicated but a bit of preparedness will go a long way in those critical seconds. Just be sure of your target and what is beyond it as well as your legal justifications to your actions. Dont be a hero, just use your head and stay calm and make sound decisions and you should do just fine.
