I personally disagree with this list. Not saying it isn't helpful for some people, I just prefer auto pistols to revolvers. Also, as to the Rem 870 at the end, I love the 870, but I'd much prefer an AR for home defense. Charging the bolt on that is just as intimidating as the 870... but instead of 4-6 shots, you get 30. For a less-trained defender (i.e., moms, teenagers as happened in TX a while back, etc), you're going to have terrible accuracy rates, so 30rds is much preferable.
