Personal defense has never been my reasoning for owning firearms. I just love to shoot. Whether it's hunting or just plinking at some tin cans. Started at the age of 6 with a trusty Daisy BB gun and about 3 square miles of Kansas wilderness. And I've just grown my collection since then. I can't say that any gun I've bought has been for the sole purpose of home defense. I've got several that would work well for it if need be, but they weren't bought for that reason.
