Yes. Funny you say that, I've actually fired a full auto G3 inside a domicile and seen what happens. I just remembered that. I also had no ears. It was loud.

Peltors are your friend. I keep a pair hung over my head board.

While doing a search on here to see recommendations for home defense ammo for the AR I stumbled across this and see a lot of people against using an AR for protection at home.

In light of everything that has happened since this post was last update three years ago, I'm curious if anyone has changed their opinion about keeping a loaded AR handy at home. The Sutherland Springs Church shooting as an example coming to mind.

My goto weapon would be a handgun as I always have one either on me or nearby when I'm at home. But I'm thinking more and more that the AR would be second in line and it wouldn't hurt to keep a couple of magazines of ammo loaded.

So thoughts/suggestions on an ammo choice?

I keep a .380 and .45 handgun beside me on/in the nightstand or carry one of them around pretty much at all times in the house...I don't have any long guns out but they are in the gun safe and easily accessible. Mags are loaded in the AK and AR and the 12 Gauge is loaded with slugs but nothing in the pipe...all I have to do is chamber and they are ready to go.

Similar. I keep a G17 by the bed ready to roll. There's an M500 with #4 buckshot with the tube full but not chambered close by. Kitchen, den, etc. all have a handgun strategically placed as well. I have loaded PMAGS scattered but AR's and other long guns are locked away.

The shotty is my preference if I have to use a weapon in the house. It shouldn't penetrate walls unsafely, will be very loud, and should deter anyone from advancing. It's sized appropriately too.
