Home Defense

The argument about Which is Better? 9mm or .45 Cal continues when comparing the stopping power of 9mm to .45 caliber. I have read a lot of conversations and arguments comparing the two calibers. I don’t understand why each isn’t a perfectly good home defense caliber. What I see missing from these “which is best” [...]

The Glock 42 has been received with some mixed feelings. At first glance it is very appealing and is clearly a little Glock in every way. But when I studied the specifications it was disappointing to find out that the 42 is the same size as many small 9mm pistols available today. Here is my [...]

When I first got interested in having a gun for protection at home my research pointed to the Shotgun as a good all around choice. Although there is something to be said for the sound of racking a round into the chamber of a Remington 870 12 Gauge, and the unmatched knock down power, the [...]

Comparing the 22 Magnum Rifle vs 9mm Handgun for Self Defense. The .22 Magnum is without a doubt better than the .22 LR but not near as suitable for defense as 9mm. In 2011, Speer released the 40 grain GDHP-SB a .22 magnum version of their Gold Dot Personal Protection ammo, and Hornady released the [...]

Cheap ammunition is no bargain. The safety issues of using cheap ammunition can be catastrophic. When I first got interested in guns and shooting in 2009, I purchased a shotgun for home defense. Next I purchased a Glock 17. Being new to the gun experience and new to shooting I had a lot to learn [...]

How many times do we hear the phrase “I didn’t know the gun was loaded”? How many times do we hear the phrase “guns don’t kill people, people kill people.” Here is an unfortunate accident that could easily have been prevented.
