Woman Pepper Spraying Attacker

Not everyone is comfortable with the thought of owning a gun. Others may have a gun at home but not a permit to carry. Some others still would like to have a backup plan of sorts, for other non-lethal defense options in case the need should arise.

There are plenty of reasons for needing to know about non-lethal defense options, and hopefully this brief overview will give you an idea of just some of these options.

Most non-lethal defense options are easy to use as well as carry and conceal. If you are going to carry one of these options, keep it in your car or even in your home you should still be aware of how to use each one.

Do not assume because these options are not as extreme as a gun that you do not need to use caution. Not only could these cause problems if misused, it is important to know how to use them so if the need presents itself you are able to use it correctly.

Buffalo Bore 45 Colt 255 Grain

Buffalo Bore 45 Colt 255 Grain

If you had three guesses to figure out why a company would call itself Buffalo Bore how many would it take you? A Buffalo Bore is not a misspelled combination of feral swine and a buffalo, but is a reference to shooting buffalo.

Buffalo are known to be hard to kill, and required a hard cast, fast, bullet that still had to be big enough to cause substantial wounds to a an animal that can weight nearly a ton.

Buffalo Bore takes pride in producing loads that tip the scales when it comes to power. The Buffalo Bore takes standard ammunition and beefs it up to some of the hottest factory loads on the market.

Which Rifle Hard Case Should I Buy?

Pelican Protect 1720 Rifle Case Desert Tan

Pelican Protect 1720 Rifle Case Desert Tan

Protecting your rifle is protecting an investment. A rifle should be protected from banging around, from the weather, and of course from being stolen.

With modern rifles, it’s rarely just about protecting the weapon. Often, expensive optics, lights, and lasers are attachments that can easily double the rifle’s cost. A good carrying case is a small investment to protect your big investment.

Pelican Protect Rifle Case – PP1720T

Pelican is one of those name brands that quietly snuck up in the industry and exploded in popularity. Pelican Cases have become the main distributor to the United States Military and hundreds of police forces across the country.

Pelican cases offer tumble and impact protection, completely waterproof, and they even float. You can’t go wrong with a Pelican Case.

Best Magazine Pouches to Take a Look At

Blade Tech Eclipse Double Mag Pouch

Blade Tech Eclipse Double Mag Pouch

Anyone who carries a handgun, whether they are police, military or civilian, already knows the benefits of having a side arm. All police and military carry an additional source of ammo, and most often they carry a lot of back up ammunition.

Most concealed carriers think just the weapon and the ammunition it carries is enough. In most cases, it will be, but when it doesn’t, the results can be fatal.

It’s important to know there are easy methods to carry additional ammo for concealed carry. For police and military especially, it’s important to pursue more advantageous options.

Best Handgun Soft Cases to Purchase

Blackhawk Gun Rug Pistol Pouch

Blackhawk Gun Rug Pistol Pouch

Pistol soft cases are a lightweight and less bulky solution to pistol protection. Soft pistol cases come in a multitude of different sizes and designs. They offer protection from the elements and keep your finish protected.

Soft cases cut down on a lot of bulk which allows you to pack half a dozen soft pistol cases in a range bag. Hard pistol cases would only allow you pack half that many pistols. The same goes for safes; it’s much easier to store a larger amount of handguns safely in soft cases.

Blackhawk Gun Rug – Medium

Blackhawk is one of my favorite companies out there. They produce a wide variety of range bags, holsters, slings, and damn near everything else for guns. This soft case functions as an easy to use handgun tote.

The material is strong and tough, and is also water resistant. The case has elastic strips built into it for holding magazines, and a soft divider to keep your weapon separated from the magazines and any other gear you are carrying.

Best Tactical Lights and Lasers for Handguns

Lights and lasers for handguns are extremely popular these days. In the last few decades, we’ve seen the market and need for these lights and lasers explode.

Laser technology has grown in leaps and bounds and lasers have gotten both smaller and more efficient, and much more affordable. Lights have become standard issue for tactical use and are becoming more and more popular with home defense.

Handgun lasers and lights are force multipliers in a low light gun fight and give police, military, and civilians another option to use from their tool kit.

Quickly, we are seeing the old methods of holding the gun with one hand and a flashlight in the other disappearing from police training. We are seeing tactical rails being added to nearly every full sized pistol in the market. These four lights & lasers are excellent examples of both technologies.

Sig Sauer STL 900

The Sig STL 900 is a combination light and laser module that is purpose built for SIG Sauer’s line of duty handguns like the P226 and P220.

The light portion is large and powerful, and runs off of one small battery for hours and hours. The laser is positioned in the center of the flashlight and may not provide dot to shot accuracy, but is more than optimal to hit an attacker.

Air pistols are fun, bite sized air guns perfect for a small number of niche applications. They can be used for training new shooters, or just a fun day of plinking.

Many air gun pistols are modeled after real life handguns and allow the shooter to train of their normal platform at a fraction of the cost of live ammo. If you prefer to train with live ammo, then at least you can still have a blast without going to the range.
