Home defense is a special case of self-defense, with a set of advantages and a few disadvantages.
Preparing yourself for self-defense, and for home defense, is a process of many steps, and only one of those is selecting and acquiring a firearm. But it is an important step, and I share what I've learned about that too.
I hope none of us ever has to defend ourselves using lethal force, but it is our right to do so, and something for which each of us should be prepared.
