Softball bat, simply because I have never taken the time to register and buy a gun. 
Since Jammen has told me twice to change my signature, I can only assume his wrestling knowledge is no longer something I can count on along with pizza and beer.

Common misconception, we currently do not register guns in America.

Bad communication on my part.  I want to get a permit and even take some time at a range and try out some weapons before purchasing.  I'm in no hurry and would like the gun for the range as much as home protection.  It's just me and I don't have much for someone to break in for, so I'm good with taking my chances with the old DeMarini if I hear a bump in the night.

My quick safe: .40 cal uzi eagle short slide, extra mags, and a .22 beretta back up.
I always bring my hips to the party.

.357 snub-145 gr silver tip HP's -fire a warning shot into the body trunk area then squeeze off 5 more rounds , reload (speed loader ) and see if the intruder is still breathing . then stop THAT.(don't want to get sued for ever )
You know, I think I would rather be a man than a god . We don't need anyone to believe in us. We just keep going anyhow. It's what we do.

Remington 870 pump

Granted, its barrel is a bit longer than ideal for purely home defense purposes, but just the sound of working the action, is sufficient to scare the bejesus out of just about any thug robber.

I sleep with a hatchet and bushman knife at my bedside.  I prefer close quarter weapons because I have a fascination with the want to kill someone face to face.

Misfired on the poll. I meant to click other because I can get to a bat faster than our gun.

Pressure cooker
Imagine the good that could be done, if people were less worried about their differences, and more worried about doing good for everyone.

Dogs.  Any firearm will work just fine for me doing mop up.
