Don't forget about the shotgun. Shotguns (messenger guns) were used in the civil war. They were used as trench guns in WW1, and still in use today.
The term "weapon of war" is a stupid term used to work on ignorant people.
My last resort gun in the house is a shotgun loaded with 7 shots of 00 buckshot. If I am cornered in the bedroom with my wife behind the bed and an intruder(s) make the mistake of reaching our bedroom door, they may as well be facing a civil war battery because that is my last resort plan. I have other guns in the house for other scenarios, but the shotgun will be the most violent show of defense.
