There is no doubt that we need to work to extend our resources when it comes to self-defense training and tools. In an effort to find efficiency from an equipment stand point many people look for one gun to do it all. I am certainly guilty of this “crime” and maybe you are too. It is understandable that with the cost firearms, accessories and ammunition that we might try to consolidate. Remember, anytime we try to do the same with less, we make sacrafices. 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. 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. Almost every day I have physical interaction with my defensive firearms, and as you know, I spend a lot of time training with, learning 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. I have talked about my caliber quandary and my choices for self-defense were often heavily influenced by the games I like to play with guns. NO MORE! I have chosen my best self-defense weapon and that is what I will compete with. 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 - Primarily a size issue
- Concealed Carry – small
- Home-defense – large
