Purses for Concealed Carry

There are a lot of people who don’t advocate purses for concealed carry. I understand the thinking. It is easy to have the purse taken from you. At the same time, a lot of times women wear clothing (or lack of clothing) that makes it darn near impossible to carry on the body.

The Smith & Wesson Governor

Looking for a multipurpose handgun? The Smith & Wesson Governor is something to consider. Now when you choose something that is multipurpose, it’s not going to do everything or even anything really, really good. It fills a lot of different roles.

The Smith & Wesson Model 31

by Home Defense Gun Staffer Bob Charlie’s First Gun – The Smith & Wesson Model 31 It’s funny the stuff that sticks in your head. Personally, I have the odd habit of remembering guns from movies. In a lot of cases I couldn’t tell you the name of the actors when the film is over […]

The Thyrm Switchback

This is a guest post by Scott Sylvester Thyrm Switchback While I stray away from equipment and gear reviews, every so often a product comes out that is actually worth talking about. While I’ve carried, bought, used, tested, broken and discarded hundreds of dollars of gear over the years, once in a great while I […]

Is the Beretta M9A1 a decent gun for home defense? There are those that hate the gun and some that love it. Many have experienced the military model, the M9.

Caracal Firearms

by Home Defense Gun Staffer Bob Caracal Firearms Normally, I would have a hard time brewing up too much sympathy when a bunch of oil sheiks lose some money on an investment. It’s kind of like Hugh Hefner complaining that he couldn’t get a date for Saturday night. Gee Hef, you sure got it rough.

Another Take on the Taurus Judge

This is a guest post by Andrew Betts The Taurus Judge seems to benefit from a far more aggressive advertising campaign than its predecessor, the Thunder Five. As much as it deserves to fade into obscurity, it just won’t die. The ammo makers have done a pretty good job selling people what they want to […]

We have a lot of women readers here on Home Defense Gun. One of the questions that get asked a lot is, “What is the best home defense caliber for a woman.”

What is the Taurus Judge Good For?

The Taurus Judge is a pistol you either love or hate.  For some it is a great multipurpose defensive weapon and others think it is a clown gun.

Pocket Pistols

Bob from Home Defense Gun has a video on pocket pistols. Besides being good to conceal carry pocket pistols can be a good option to stash around the house. Make sure if you do this you keep them safe from children and others who shouldn’t have access to them.

Good Budget Handgun – Ruger P95

If you are looking for a good budget handgun, take a look at the Ruger P95.  You should be able to find a new one under $300 and a used one for under $200. Make sure if you buy a used one, you check it out well.

Teach Your Child to Shoot

Back in the last century it was pretty common for children to be taught to shoot. These days it’s pretty much up to you to teach your child to shoot. Here’s a look back at some of the programs they had back then for gun safety and handling.

Ruger SP101 Review

Ruger SP101 Review in .357 Magnum  Introduction: Semi-autos seem to be preferred by many shooters, and are standard for law enforcement and military almost worldwide. However, there is still a market for revolvers, or old -school wheel guns as some call them. Simplicity of operation, and reliability are very attractive features.

The Ruger 10/22 for Home Defense

A good choice when looking for a rifle is the Ruger 10/22 for home defense. Now I wouldn’t want to hold off the zombie hoard with it. I would much rather have an AK or an AR-15 for that.

New Life for the M1911

by Home Defense Gun Staffer Bob New Life for the M1911 It might be that I’m just getting contrary as the years go by. For some reason the more popular something gets the less interest I seem to be able to muster up for it. It might just be that when something gets popular I […]

Ruger SR9 Review

We found a great Ruger SR9 review. This is a really functional, nice looking pistol at a great price. I like it for a home defense gun because it packs enough of a punch with 17 rounds, yet will fit well into the hand of a smaller woman.

The Best Handgun

We found a great video that takes on the question of what is the best handgun. Drum roll please….it is the S&W Model 686 Plus Revolver.

Thureon Carbines

By Home Defense Gun Staffer Bob Thureon Carbines At one time or another every gun buyer considers the pistol caliber carbine. A rifle is easier to shoot, probably offers a little bump in muzzle energy with the longer barrel and should give a noticeable increase in accuracy.

Professional Gun Cleaning Secrets

I received my Professional Gun Cleaning Secrets DVD from the American Gun Smith Institute a while back and wanted to give you an idea of what was inside of it.

Glock’s Pocket Pistol

by Home Defense Gun Staffer Bob Glock’s Pocket Pistol The ebb and flow of gun design has always interested me. For some reason the gun industry likes to take a concept, fuss with it, rework it and redefine it until the initial guns in the genre have little resemblance to their current brethren, at which […]

.380s – Compact Guns for Females

We’ll say it over and over. Men and women have different needs when it comes to firearms. .380’s are good compact guns for females either around the house or as a concealed carry for women.  Remember, if it is uncomfortable you will find reasons not to carry it and won’t have it when your really […]

AR-15 for Home Defense- Ideal Firearm?

We’ll probably have a lot of discussion on this. When looking at the AR-15 for home defense, some love it and some hate it. The people who love it tend to think of it as an all in one weapon with the ability to hold a large number of rounds, mount lights on it, and […]
