But it got my brain going. Is there something I can do to mentally prepare for the worst case scenario? are there classes? should I play paintball? or just hope self preservation kicks in if need be?

1) practice with your firearms. A lot. Being intimately familiar with your tools makes using them easier.

The majority of people cannot kill another person and those people should not be armed. .

Consider using the 20ga for home defense. If you have more experience with it, it will be more comforting to you and all you really have to do is point in a general direction for it to be effective.
As far as killing someone, no on is ever prepared to make that decision.
I'd be willing to bet that if the situation arose that you were in a situation in which it was your life or theirs, you would do it.
Hope you never have to make that call.
Excellent point. A shotgun has a habit of clearing a hallway or a stairwell pretty damn quick. The sound of that action being worked is often enough to give most two-bit jackbags second thoughts.
