why pretend you'll have a longarm?

the odds are very high that you wont, in case of a home invasion. In fact, if you dont ccw the pistol everywhere in your home, the odds are high that you wont be able to bring IT into play fast enough. Guys enter with a sudden crash, or by subterfuge. you dont mow the lawn, answer the door, set out the garbage, take out the pets, or get your mail, with shotgun in hand. If the pistol aint enough in your mind, get a different pistol a different load, and a much higher level of skill with it. you CLAIM I wont have the 4 seconds needed to get my lanyarded earplugs into my ears, but (somehow) YOU will have 10 seconds needed to run and get your shotgun! What a crock.

you also wont have the longarm when away from home, and you consider the pistol to be enough THEN, so why not while at home? Are you just too lazy to carry it around?

I guess I missed something. Was there a conversation somewhere about not carrying a handgun at home?
