One question I get asked very frequently is “What kind of handgun should I get for home defense”. My answer is always the same: “I wouldn’t get a handgun for home defense.” There are a handful of reasons why a pistol just isn’t the brightest idea for protecting against a home invasion.
The best option for home defense is a tactical 12 gauge shotgun.
Take note! A great choice!!! We used shotguns in the Corps and they are awesome, even if you do have a tendency to shoot balls off with them. Good read!
