Protecting yourself and your family has never been more important. There are many more criminals with guns floating around than at any time in history with the possible exception of America’s “Old West” period, and that is unlikely to change at any time in the near future.
If you do not already have defensive weapons in your arsenal, now is the perfect time to pick a firearm for your personal protection. Here are some of your best options:
1. Smith & Wesson M&P Shield
If you’re looking for a concealed carry handgun, it’s hard to find anything better than a Smith & Wesson M&P Shield. This highly accurate and supremely reliable firearm has protected decades of homes from intruders and continues to keep people safe throughout the country. Even better, it’s virtually undetectable when tucked inside your waistband and the Green Trace Laser Guard provides you with exceptional targeting ability.
2. Ruger LCP
A Ruger LCP (Lightweight Carry Pistol) is a handy piece of hardware to have around when the going gets rough. Easy to conceal in a variety of places, the compact pistol is only a little over 5 inches in length and under 10 ounces in weight with sleek nylon grips. The Ruger’s outline is easily hidden under even the lightest of clothing due to the careful machining of the sights into the body and the low-profile outline of the weapon. This inexpensive choice packs a solid punch with a .380 in the chamber.
3. Taurus Defender Polymer
This lightweight hand cannon will definitely protect you from whatever is headed your way, plus it’s a versatile option that will fire a variety of different bullets. From the .410 and Load No. 12 shotshells to .45 Colts, this highly-functional handgun lets you choose from several different loads to suit your personal preference or unique needs. It may not be the most accurate of the bunch, but the small size, relatively light weight and flexibility of bullets makes it a great choice for homeowners.
4. Remington 870 Shotgun
No true home or personal defense arsenal is complete without a Remington shotgun. The full pump action on this beauty works equally well for shooting small game and protecting your property from unwanted visitors. One of the most popular shotguns for the last several decades, this mid-priced option is backed by Remington’s quality brand, and allows even those without significant experience with weaponry to feel comfortable and more confident at home. Investing in a few additional barrels brings even more versatility to the table so you can utilize the same firearm for keeping burglars at bay and bagging some game without investing in another base gun.
Maintaining your personal safety and that of your family through firearms is an inalienable American right. These options are some of the most reasonably-priced and well-rounded weapons available for protection.
Always keep your firearms safe, secure and away from prying eyes in a gun safe!
