Ok, honestly, do you really need a frigging shotgun for peace of mind? Wouldn't something smaller work just as well?

mmn. With a shotgun you can just point it in the general direction of your target and likely hit it. Also shot is less likely to go through walls than bullets.

A shotgun is a) intimidating as hell, and b) as Vorn pointed out, less likely to penetrate walls.

Plus it makes a cooler picture.

The sound of a pump shotgun chambering a lioad just has to be one of the most horrifying sounds on earth if the shot gun might be pointed your way

At under 15 feet (The likely distance inside a home), almost any handgun will have just as much accuracy as a shotgun, and a whole lot less to clean up. After passing through a body, a 9mm bullet shouldn't be able to penetrate a brick wall (after passing through the sheetrock and insulation)

The OTHER benefit of NOT using a shotgun is cleanup. As in not having to resheetrock the entire wall, replace _all_ of the carpet, and every piece of furniture between you and the object you're shooting (and behind the object).

Locking _any_ slide back is EXTREMELY loud in a silent home.
