Quick question. I'm not a gun owner, not because I'm against them, but I never felt comfortable having them in the house with my older kid (who has now moved out). I've had someone snooping around my house in the middle of the night at least twice though this past week and that thinking has 100% changed...I'm buying something this week. Also, I'm in SC so there's no waiting time or anything. Anyway, my neighbor has a 25 foot clay embankment on the back of her property that they specifically left for shooting so I can get proficient with anything. What do I want for basic home defense though? Shotgun? A 9MM? A revolver? The criteria are that I'm not spending much because I won't ever use it (maybe the $250-350 range) AND it has to be something that my wife and 16 year old daughter can shoot comfortably. Other thoughts- the most likely use for the gun besides home defense would be rattlesnakes (good chance...we see 1-2 per year) or coyotes/bobcats (semi-decent chance...they're here but generally stay away). I welcome any opinions because this isn't my thing at all.
