There is no doubt that we need to work to extend our resources when it comes to self-defense training and tools. Â In anÂ effortÂ to find efficiency from an equipment stand point many people look for one gun to do it all. Â I am certainly guilty of this “crime” and maybe you are too. Â It is understandable that with the cost firearms, accessories and ammunition that we might try to consolidate. Â Remember, anytime we try to do the same with less, we make sacrafices. Â Today we will take a look at how our drive for gear efficiency might not lead us to the best self defense decisions.
I don’t know about you, but I really enjoy firearms. Â For the past 21 years, I’m guessing there hasn’t been a single day that has gone by that I haven’t at least though about guns. Â Almost every day I have physical interaction with my defensive firearms, and as you know, I spend a lot of time training with,Â learningÂ about and talking about my guns.
Like most of you, I have firearms that I depend on that fall into several categories:
Common Concesions People Make when Choosing Self-Defense Weapons
Competition v. Self-Defense Handgun
This is the trap that I fell into for years. Â I have talked about my caliberÂ quandaryÂ and myÂ choicesÂ for self-defense were often heavily influenced by the games I like to play with guns. Â NO MORE! Â I have chosen my best self-defense weapon and that is what I will compete with. Â Be careful of the concessions competition can lead to:
- Handgun Caliber
- Handgun Capacity or Size
- Handgun Action Type
Hunting v. Self-Defense Handgun
- Sight Systems
Self-Defense Handgun v. Self-Defense Handgun?
Concealed Carry Weapons v. Home Defense Handgun -Â Primarily a size issue
- Concealed Carry – small
- Home-defense – large
