So you’ve committed to defending your home, and a firearm seems like the best choice. There is a lot to consider. First off, make sure that if you are considering a firearm for home defense, you are absolutely willing to take another human life. If you scrutinize yourself and find that you couldn’t under any circumstances take a life to save yourself or a family member, consider another means of defense. The Taser Pulse and Bolt come to mind as possible substitutes for firearms. They are also great to have when deadly force is not justified but danger still threatens. It is also important to remember that a gun is never to be used as a bluff or to scare an attacker.
