I don't have a clue why you would want a firearm at home. it just don't understand the need for it.
I have a SIG 550 at home, because I have to. stupid mandatory army service. I can't wait for the day I can give that thing back again
Well i don't like glocks at all so i may be bias. What i do know is people have been loving the M&Ps (especially women due to their smaller grips). That being said get a Springfield XD haha. You really cannot go wrong with anything in the XD line. Also, what is your decision of a 9mm over a .40 or 45?
Not for sure what your were getting at on the second part.
As for the last bit, I'm not a fan of the number generated by the .380. If we were to discuss worst case scenario, penetration loss due to layered clothing is a serious potential. If you're using hollow points, which I would be, this is more of an issue during a good portion of the year in the north.
Your government and laws can only do so much to "keep you safe" but at the end of the day or when the moment comes I believe it is up to the individual to be a form of defense. I think modern society has sort of become weak on this idea. We used to kill or maim as punishment for theft. Now we give them a small fine and a tax payer vacation. Those who don't with to be inconvenienced by the trip have and will go to violent lengths to avoid the hassle.
It is possible to save someones life; though I would rather never have to be even remotely close to such a position or event of choice. http://www.wafb.com/Global/story.asp?S=4527526

[hint, no one said ANYTHING about leaving a gun unattended on a nightstand and leaving the house]
The only time a gun should be "locked up" is so that a child or other irresponsible party could get access to it.
just get yourself a few bear traps, works against robbers aswell as zombies.
Or would you just prefer links to other stories detailing citizens using firearms to safe their own lives or lives of others? How about a Sexual Assault Victim (LINK) who is at knifepoint but grabs her gun and shoots her attacker?
Or the 15 year old boy who took his father's AR15 (LINK) and shot a burglar in order to protect himself and his 12 year old sister.
Or the 12 year old girl (LINK) who used the family firearm to defend herself against an intruder while she was home alone.
On a side note; teach your kids about firearms, don't hide them in a safe. A firearm needs to be accessible if the need arises.
