A gun should be the last line defense to protect you and your family from an intruder. The best defense starts with the deterrents.
Snarling dogs and/or a burglar alarm are far more effective than a gun. Keeping bad guys out in the first place is the best way of protecting your castle. When it comes to dogs the more the merry. My personal favorites for home protection are the German Shepherd, Boxer, Doberman Pincher, Dogue de Bordeaux, Wolf Shepherd and the venerable Rottweiler. Other suitable guard dogs include are big boys like the Bullmastiff, Irish Wolfhound, Great Dane, Rhodesian Ridgeback/African Lion Hound (used to hunt lions) Akita, St Bernard and Giant Schnauzer.
Putting the Bite on the Bad Guys.
If you are looking for sheer biting force the Rottweiler comes in with an impressive 328 PSI of devastating chomp. Shepherds have a bite force of up to 238 PSI, which is quite impressive, since the dogs average 75 to 85 pounds. Pit bulls bite at only 71 percent of the strength of Rottweiler's with a recorded bite force of a meager 235 PSI. Bigger is better. When Obama was in trouble during the 2012 campaign he called in Bill the big dog Clinton so if you want a powerful canine protector that can chew up bad guy faster that Bill Clinton can wreck a lying Republican go with a Bullmastiff. At a whopping 556 PSI, the bite force of Mastiffs is most powerful of all the breeds. To put that into perspective; the Great White Shark has a bite force of 625 PSI and a male lion bite is 650 PSI. Pound for pound the Bullmastiff has the most powerful bite and weighs in at svelte 160 pounds. You can easily beef one up to over 200 pounds with food and anabolic steroids.
|OK Michael Vick, try killing one of these dogs like you killed your pit bulls! This bad ass motha fucka will fuck you right the fuck up bitch!|
They don't fuck around in Africa when it comes to personal protection. There they use Hyena hybrids that appear to be bred with some sort of large dog. US law forbids Americans from owning hyenas. The animals with the highest biting forces are the hippopotamus, American alligator and the crocodile. Unfortunately the dogs with the most powerful biting force the Borophagine dogs or bone crushing dogs became extinct millions of years ago. Perhaps the folks from Jurassic Park can mix their ancient DNA with a modern dog and produce a pooch with the bite force of a goddamn alligator.

Shotgun loads can be customized. Less powder and more pellets are ideal for close range home defense applications. The modern shotgun is merely a refined version of the blunderbuss. The blunderbuss is the grandaddy of intruder neutralization weapons. When pirates tried to board merchant ships sailors would fire blunderbusses and take out three or four with one shot. Let's see a wimpy AR-15 do that.
Clearly, Uncle Joe Biden aka Shotgun Joe Biden and Uncle Fester know home defense. Put yourself in a home invader's shoes. If you were robbing a home what would you rather be shot with, a wimpy 9mm or a wimpy .223 cal round or 18 .33 cal lead balls with a combined weight of 2 ounces screaming at you at a blistering 1600 fps? What do you think you'd have a better chance of surviving?
The US military uses a the .223 round for a good reason. The round wounds the enemy and the thinking is that when an enemy combatant is wounded it will take more people off the battle field. If you are dealing with a home intruder you what that son of a bitch dead as a door nail as quickly as possible. It will save you the hassle of addending his trial and it will save the taxpayers the cost of a trial and incarceration. Let's see a .223 to that. The 12 gauge shotgun is a fiscally responsible home defense weapon.
Now for some visual proof.
