  • Do your homework on any guns that you might be considering.  Look up reviews and opinions on the home defense guns that you have narrowed down and see what others think of them before you decide to select that gun to protect your home.  If people tend to like it then it might be a very viable option but if people seem to dislike it then you might want to consider other options.
  • If possible, try the gun out before you purchase it.  Once you have selected the gun that you are interested in for home defense see if you can try it at a shooting range or somewhere with shooting practice to make sure that it fits yours and your families needs.  A gun might sound great on paper and fit your budget, but it is not until you try it out for yourself that you can determine if it indeed is a good fit or not.
