The Five Best Ways to Choose a Concealable Handgun We believe there are five basics to keep in mind, when considering looking for a concealable handgun for personal defense applications.CHOOSE A PRACTICAL CALIBERSIMPLICITYPHYSICAL STRENGTHCHOOSE A HANDGUN THAT FEELS COMFORTABLE IN YOUR HANDPRACTICAL HANDGUN CARRY1. CHOOSE A PRACTICAL CALIBER Choose a caliber with enough power to consistently penetrate the human skull and penetrate deep enough into the body to cause lethal damage (bleeding) to major organs, because when deadly force is justified, you want to stop the threat as soon as possible.What does Research tell us?A "Police Marksman Magazine" survey from 1985 - 1990 (on real police shootings) proves accurate heads shots, with .38 special and 9 mm calibers, effectively stop the threat 100% of the time; even though they do not always cause death.FBI studies (on real police shootings) also proved the only way to consistently stop a threat as soon...

Understanding the Predator and Winning Mindset
Understanding the Predator and Winning Mindset Predators will use kindness, sympathy and compassion against you, if you let them. I saw this in person on a “Walmart” parking lot. A total stranger started walking towards me with his hand out stretched saying, “Can you help me”? Obviously, he wanted me to feel sorry for him, lower my guard, and allow him to get close to me; once I shook his hand, he would have a hold of my right hand and my right arm putting me under his control.Therefore do not be nice to strangers! Instead take a “Defensive stance”, because it is pro-active, and it projects an image of readiness to a would-be attacker. This stance requires having your feet shoulder width apart for a stable balanced fighting platform and keeping your hands up in front of your chest, so they are ready to block an attack to your...

Machine Guns for Survival
TV and movies have created a false belief in the usefulness and effectiveness of machine guns. The media depict heroes and villains alike using machine guns to spray hundreds, if not thousands, of bullets with almost pinpoint accuracy and controllability without ever reloading. This misrepresentation has fueled many questions in regards to machine guns for use in a survival application. The goal of this article is to correct this false belief and answer some of those questions.The difference between a semi-automatic and a fully automatic firearm centers on the trigger design. Simply put the trigger on a semi-automatic firearm is designed to fire one shot per one depression of the trigger. Press the trigger backwards once and the weapon fires one shot. The trigger of a fully automatic firearm is designed to fire multiple rapid shots with one depression of the trigger. Depressing the trigger backwards and holding it back allows...

Flashlight Mounted Handguns
According to the FBI law enforcement shooting statistics, 40% to 50% of all police shootings occur under low light conditions or during dark time hours, so there’s a good chance you might need a flashlight for personal defense. The question is, will just mounting a flashlight on my handgun prepare me for a low light defensive shooting situation?Most modern semiautomatic handguns come with a “rail mount” located in front of the trigger guard and beneath the barrel, and there are several powerful and affordable lithium battery flashlights specifically designed for quick attachment to these “rail mounts”. So, getting and attaching a flashlight to your handgun is relatively easy. Most people also think that they’re killing two birds with one stone, because a mounted light enables them to keep both hands on their handgun and use a flashlight to search for threats all at the same time. However, there are problems...

Home Defense Shotgun Ammunition
From a listener of our radio show:“I once saw a show that claimed bird shot wouldn’t go through a 2" think steak. The steak was meant to simulate the muscle on the human body. Is this true? If so why do you recommend it instead of 00. If the bird shot doesn’t go through the muscle there would be no damage to vitals just a real nasty flesh wound. Wouldn’t it stand to reason that if the attacker if has enough adrenaline or is jacked up on a substance such as pcp they could still keep coming? Just trying to get some insight.”TimThanks for contacting us with your personal defense concerns, and we commend your drive to get as much insight as possible to enhance your personal defense plans.First lets address what I deduce is your main concern; how do you stop an attacker if he/she has enough adrenaline going...

Castle Doctrine
The 2nd Amendment is the foundation of our right to self-defense. It’s a right to “…keep and bear arms…” for personal defense against criminal activity and an abusive government. There were criminals back in the late 1700's, when the original amendments to the U.S. Constitutional were created, and our founding fathers realized there would continue to be criminals in a future America. This is why they gave us the gun as the ultimate equalizer to defend our lives as well as the lives of our families and those in our communities.Remember for a hundred years or so after our Country gained its independence, there was no law enforcement between cities or States. Cities and townships had Marshalls to protect the citizens and enforce the laws within those individual jurisdictions. Later in our Country's history, County Sheriffs were utilized to protect the citizens and enforce the laws in the Counties outside...

Lasers for Personal Defense
You’re watching a movie, and you see a police officer throw a “flash bang” distraction grenade through a window at one end of a house and simultaneously on the other end of the house a tactical entry team smashes in a door with a “battering ram” and rush in. Each officer’s rifle is up at the ready with his laser light on. With what looks like dozens of thin red lines of light flashing in multiple directions out in front of the entry team, the bad guy is arrested and handcuffed in seconds. In the tactical world this is known as a “Dynamic Entry”. This tactical maneuver was achieved by countless hours of rehearsal focused on speed, as well as overwhelming manpower and firepower. In other words the bad guy is either arrested before he can react, or he very quickly realizes he has no chance of winning a physical...

Personal Defense Ammo
Effective home defensive ammunition involves a delicate balance between bullet penetration and expansion. If the bullet goes through the attacker or misses its intended target and strikes an interior or exterior wall, the bullet expansion should greatly reduce the changes of effective over penetration through an interior or exterior wall into an adjacent room or through and exterior wall and into an adjacent house. Bullet expansion creates two effects; it makes a larger frontal contact surface which reduces continued penetration depth, and it reduces bullet velocity. The best home defense ammunition should maximize these effects.Effective personal defensive ammunition involves another delicate balance between penetration and expansion. The bullet must penetrate deep enough to damage major internal organs without penetrating through an attacker and penetrate the thickness of a human skull for 100% stoppage of a threat. The bullet must also expand enough to increase internal damage, but it cannot expand...
