What's your living situation? What's your level of experience/training?

The simple answer to your question is keep it loaded with buckshot and ready to go and lock it up when your not home.

Glad your friend is okay.

Get some training on home defense specific stuff. Being able to handle a gun on the clays course or in the field is very different from handling a gun in a life and death situation. Work on your home security and have a plan that involves your family so they know what to do if anything happens.

A light is a must have. Extra ammo is always a good idea. I don't personally like side saddles or cuffs or whatever but if you do then there is nothing wrong with having one as long as you practice loading from it and add some stress to your training to work on loading under stress. No one ever lost a gunfight from having too much ammo.

I can't tell what those shells are but if they are turkey loads go get some 00 buckshot. Learn to put it COM while you're moving (that will decrease the odds of it penetrating walls).

can you elaborate please?

Thanks
The more you train and the more difficult your training is the more likely you are going to be to put rounds in the middle of the bad guy's torso. Bad guys are very effective at slowing down rounds that hit them thus decreasing the round's ability to penetrate a wall.
