    I'm not sure if we are on the same page of the song book in reading your
statement above. If we are planning to defend our home against urban unrest
then I can easily understand your recommendation.
    If we are planning for the night another member of our family calls on us
for help from another room within our house then by all means I want a
pistol. It is just too awkward taking a long gun through a doorway or
through any congested area.
    On the other hand maybe someone knows a technique I don't know. When I
searched buildings for a living those of us with pistols would take the lead,
especially through doorways and other congested areas and have the guy with
the riot gun bring up the rear.
