Here Are Some Pretty Good Home Defense Guns You Can Buy In 2022

When it comes to home defense, the very best weapon that you can have, is the one that works best for you. It doesn’t matter the cost, or the ‘capacity’, or even the caliber. What matters the most is how comfortable you are using that particular weapon.  Always remember, the video below only ‘suggests’ what firearms you might use and offers you choices, that’s it.

The producers of the video below had this to say:

Thinking more and more about buying a gun for home defense? Need a starting point to look for the right gun for your situation? Then this is for you. This is not an all-inclusive list. Rather, this will cover some of the more popular options for new gun lovers. One of the best guns for home defense that you always see recommended is a shotgun.

The reason is that you don’t have to be as accurate when shooting. You still have to point at the intruder, but you don’t necessarily have to be “accurate” as with other guns. Shotguns are also relatively affordable and there are many makes and models that are reliable. The most common caliber for a home defense handgun is 9mm.

This does mean that your gun will penetrate through walls and can possibly harm your loved ones during a home invasion. Also, many experts recommend hollow point ammo because of the power, and they are a bit safer to shoot in a home defense scenario. In general, pistols hold more capacity and have more moving parts.

However, with revolvers, all you need to do is keep pulling the trigger if there is a malfunction. In today’s video I’ll breakdown my choices for the best home defense guns and explain what makes a gun perfect for protecting your castle.

I’ll say again, the weapons highlighted in the video below are merely suggestions, nobody is saying that you have to run out and buy any of them unless you want to. Just remember, the best gun, is the one that works best for you in your situation.
