Roughly two weeks ago, a homeowner in Oklahoma was awakened to the sounds of the glass on his front door being shattered. Startled, he grabbed his home defense tool and confronted the threat, which turned out to be three men, all in black and masked.
Threatened with his safety, the homeowner used his defensive tool and thwarted the intruders plans with a few well placed rounds.
When Law Enforcement arrived, the scene was pretty clear. Three men with bad intent had broken into the home. The homeowner, outnumbered, quite reasonable in his fear for his safety, stopped the threats from coming any further. With that information, the Law Enforcement decided that no charges would be filed against the defender.
In a situation where lethal force was to be applied, this was a pretty darn good outcome for the defender.
But if you've noticed, I've mentioned the "defensive tool," but I haven't said what that tool was. In this Oklahoma scenario, that tool was a Modern Sporting Rifle (MSR), also known as an AR15.
Using a tool like an MSR can give anyone a pretty solid tactical advantage in a home defense scenario. This is actually why SMT spent so much time and energy developing the Home Defense Rifle video training series. That rifle is the best home defense tool option and we wanted our students to be able to use it to the fullest.
But just having a good tool, doesn't equal a good home defense plan. So for the next few weeks, I'm going to go into how to set up your home for defense, but if you want a shortcut, just pick up your copy of Home Defense Rifle here.
