If you have been looking to purchase a new firearm for personal protection at home, as well as a firearm that you are going to be able to carry concealed to protect yourself when you’re away from your house, you’ll find there are plenty of different options available to pick and choose from.
Some would even say there are too many options out there to make this choice really easy!
Thankfully though, by picking and choosing your next personal protection firearm from the list that we have included below, you’ll be able to get your hands on a reliable firearm that you can use to protect yourself and your loved ones in an emergency situation without having to break your budget or spend hours and hours training yourself to use safely.
And while you’ll want to be sure that you keep your firearm in an easily reachable position so that you can use it in an emergency situation, it is of the utmost importance that you secure that firearm – with individual firearm locks that disable the firing mechanism and access to the trigger – to make sure that there aren’t any accidents that can occur should someone else stumble upon its location.
Let’s break down some of the best personal protection options available on the market today.
Smith and Wesson J Frame Revolver
Very lightweight, very well-made, and (because it is a revolver) one of the most reliable personal defense weapons on the market right now, this option from Smith and Wesson is available in a variety of different calibers (.38,.38+, and .357) so that you can get all of the stopping power you’re looking for without having to break your bank account.
This sub-compact weapon system is by far the most versatile and lightweight of the guns on our list. The trigger pull is light which leads to a higher accuracy for the untrained shooter. Filtering this weapon is seamless and most package come with additional magazines. Most of the lighter weapons have a less tolerable recoil but this weapon is fantastic.
Ruger LCP Pistol
The Ruger Lightweight Compact Pistol (LCP) has won a number of industry awards – and continues to win them almost every single year thanks to its innovative design and unique form factor. Incredibly lightweight and very short – just 10 ounces when loaded and measuring 5.16 inches long – this is the perfect personal protection firearm at home as well as a firearm that you can comfortably carry concealed. It’s ridiculously low price tag also doesn’t hurt!
When you get right down to it, there may not be a more popular firearm when it comes to personal protection than a firearm design that has been around since 1911.
Sure, this design is now more than 100 years old – but it’s been able to stand the test of time because it is so reliable, because it is so effective, and because it has proven itself to be worthy in more situations than anyone would ever be able to count.
Whether you get one chambered in the traditional .45 caliber or instead choose a 9 mm configuration (or something else entirely), you’ll be in good hands when you choose a Colt 1911 – or any variant of this firearm – as your personal protection tool.
