What’s Better for Home Defense? Double Barrel Shotgun or AR-15? [VIDEO]

Home defense is best served with what weapon?

A double barrel shotgun or an AR-15 rifle?

Hickok45 explores this question and gives you his answer.

When the subject of home defense comes up, many answer that the shotgun is the king of the domain.

This video pits the Stoeger Coach Gun double barrel shotgun in 12 gauge against the AR-15 rifle. The results were actually surprising.

With only two shots and a small shot spread, the double barrel shotgun looses ground. Quick handling capabilities, precision, and rapid fire ability puts the AR15 ahead in this test.

Hickok45 prefers the AR15 rifle for home defense. Watch this video to see first hand why he chose one.
