I have always been a big believer that your mission should drive the gear you select. Your mission could be a specialized military or law enforcement mission, it could be deep concealment in a non-permissive environment, or it could be something as “simple” as home defense.
When you’re looking at the mission of home defense, on the surface it seems simple, right? Defend your home. But what does that mean? Does that mean detecting and deterring intruders before they can make entry? Do you have children that you’ll need to collect up and move to a safe location? For me, a recent examination of my home defense plan caused me to make a big change and switch up the guns I was using for home protection.
It’s worth taking a look at your home defense plan every six months to make sure you don’t need to make any changes!
