You live in the country so I would look to having a rifle for home defense over either shot gun or pistol. And you mention your wife has mostly rifle experience so her comfort level is good over a pistol which she is less practiced with. On top of the rifle being a much better fight stopper.

In response to your original thought, I do not in the least worry about having my primary sidearm impounded. I keep a quality backup carry piece*, that I'm confident in, for such an event.

*Quality backup carry piece = a second Ed Brown Feel free to use this logic when you explain to your wife the importance of having another Brown.
