It comes down to personal choice.I like the intimidation factor of a shotgun pumping.

Huh, interesting to say the least.

My idea of a carbine is a pistol loaded long gun, such as a Keltec Sub-2000 or Camp-9.

As to using bird shot or #1 for home defense - yeah okay - don't think so. At minimum I use #4 buck.

The .223, which in carbine format, is still a rifle load, thus I treat as a rifle - not a carbine.

Now, would I use a 9,40 or 45 chambered weapon for home defense in the carbine format - sure I would. The Keltec for example holds more cartridge, is easy to use and is inexpensive to own(paid less for my carbine than any of my pistols or shotguns).
