Pardon sir, but you've made a disastrously erroneous assumption in your post, specifically that one and only one shot is needed to eliminate the
threat of home invasion. Unfortunately, home invasions are rarely carried out by a single individual, although many murders and "crimes of passion"
often involve one and only one perpetrator.
My point is that although your glorious assumption regarding one-shot kills has some merit for a single predator it's completely baseless if an
"entry team" of predators arrives. Consider how many entrances there are to your own home and that each of those entrances could be breached by
multiple predators. Consider the location of your home's entrances and consider crossfire, cover and multiple assailants - then consider reload
time. In such situations it would be extremely difficult to achieve multiple one shot kills with multiple assailants - if not impossible.
I must agree with you in that the best form of gun control insures that you hit your target - preferably with small groups!
Granted there may be more than one person breaking in. Chances are, when you shoot one, the others will be quite startled. A single action revolver is
efficient enough to handle the situation. It's also easier to get hold of than the uzi locked in your gun cabinet. If you have an uzi and it's not
locked in a gun cabinet, I question the sanity of the owner especially if there are children in the house.
A single action revolver in the bedside table that the children are aware of and respect, knowing it's not a toy and not to be touched is much more
