For Home defense, as in some guy just broke in and has a crow bar and is rushing you to crush your skull?
I look at it like this. Say I need a heart Transplant. I can pick one of two doctors to do the operation. A doctor who just finished his residency or a doctor who has been doing this same surgery for 20 years and has hundred of sucessfull results.
Pick one. With the Maverick being the rookie and the doctor with all the proven experience being the 590 or 870.
