    Going with a new house/RV personal protection choice.

    Last year my choice of personal protection in the RV was a Taurus Judge Poly loaded with 4:10 and alternating .45LC every second round.

    Which got me to thinking of maybe changing my home protection choice to a different selection. Something in line with reducing the chance of collateral damage outside of the wall of the house. Keep in mind that my exterior walls are 16+" thick with the center being at least 6" of concrete and rebar. Still one can't be too safe when factoring in collateral damage.

    I will likely also use this in the motorhome this upcoming year for the same reasons. Please feel free to offer me your feedback.

    I already have plenty of 12 gauge lighter personal protection round on hand.

    Neat little weapon, maybe you can get a swivel hook to carry it on your belt. I think that is the main disadvantage I see, not always having it riding on your hip and having to carry it around. If I were to get one, I would probably opt for a 20, but don't like the fewer options for buckshot.

    We have been rv'ing since 1978.
    We started out with a 19 foot class C and ended at a 45 foot DP.
    I have always had a pistol grip 12 gauge on the floor next to me when I was driving.
    I also carried a 9mm in a pocket in the front of the driver's seat.
    What my wife had.............I have no idea. She relished in surprising me.
    Also, I am really not paranoid. I just don't like people.
    There are only two options as I see it.
    Either I'm right, or there is a sinister
    conspiracy to conceal the fact that I'm right.

    JJ, that is a nice gun. I own a Shockwave for the same reason you want your Tac and after using it, shooting it, and keeping it in multiple vehicles I prefer the Shockwave. There are a couple differences between the 2 guns that are important to me. # one the magazine removes a lot of the convenience and conceal ability of the gun. Pulling the gun out from under a seat or from behind a seat the extra long magazine hangs up every time. You're only alternative is to keep the magazine separate and then you have to add an extra step or 2 to load the magazine into the gun and racking a shell into the chamber. The 2nd reason is capacity. The shockwave holds one more round than a standard tac. I understand the 1 you're looking at holds 6. I use the Mini shels in mine and I can load 9 of them. Birdshot, buckshot, or slugs, your choice.. Granted, they are not full size 12 gauge rounds, but you are using the gun for personal protection not deer hunting. The mini shells are all anybody needs for self protection especially when there's 9 of them. As an example the mini slugs shells throw a 386 grain slugs at 1250 fps....

    The other point that is very important to me it's the safety. On the shockwave the safety is right up on top under your thumb and on the tac you have to find the safety and push it through the trigger guard. Now granted, I can get used to that through practice with the gun but if there comes a time when my wife or someone else needs the gun in an emergency they don't need to be fumbling around the trigger guard trying to push the safety button from one side to the other.

    Bottom line is it's going to be your gun and your choice. I wish you good luck with it whatever it is and please shoot safely!

    I see gun control as waiting in an ambulance at the bottom of a cliff when we should be building a fence at the top!

    Good choice.

    I use a Taurus Judge Magnum as my bedside Home Defense firearm, but I also have a Mossberg 590 Shockwave propped up in a scabbard in the corner. The Judge is my go-to gun for investing things that go bump in the night, whereas the Shockwave is reserved for high alert situations like if I hear the front door get kicked in or a window smashed downstairs.
    Fortunately, the Shockwave was only deployed once, and it was a false alarm in which something went bang very loud downstairs one night, sounded like something was banging against the windows, but whatever it was stopped and left no trace.

    Nope, a tornado attracted area at most.

    It was built to be energy efficient. It wears a metal roof top hat and makes no direct floor contact with the surface of the ground to eliminate transference of ground temperatures. The crawl space double as the return air ventilation, the crawl space also has head room clearance of 36" to 50". However, for better energy efficiency we could have cut back by approx. 25 windows.

    When we built it we put in a special built combination A/C with a cooling tower that kept water running over the coils to reduce the coil temperature. The heating system was a constant flow of hot water that ran through a couple of grids of copper pipe with the heat of the water grid being used to heat the house. Both of these hybrid setups has since been replaced going back to standard heat pumps.

    The best choice is what ever works for you. There is no one solution fits all.
