Budget cuts around the country have put a substantial burden on already stressed police forces. It has never been more necessary to protect yourself and your loved ones.

It is absolutely critical that you do so in a responsible way by learning and practicing safe, effective methods.

Always be mindful that the safety of your family and first responders is the top priority and it must be planned for as well as practiced. Owning a gun for home defense is a big responsibility and there is no room for error. The more well trained armed people there are protecting themselves, the more likely crime rates will be reduced.
