The best home defense weapon is the one that you know how to operate 100% – meaning you can make it ready to fire and safe again in the dark, you know how to field strip it, and have muscle memory from lots of practice at the range. I agree that a shotgun make for an awesome home defense tool, but in my case I have a .45 1911 style gun with +P hollow points because I can keep it in a gun vault for safety (kids in the house) and I’ve been shooting this type of weapon for almost 40 years, so in a stressful situation I am confident that my instincts will work. Also, I like having the ability to slip the gun into a large pocket or waistband if it turns out to be someone friendly at the door and I don’t want to spook them.
