To defend your home, you need two things. A gun and good judgment.
As gun owners and defensive shooters, we all know that the best way to protect your home and loved ones is a gun. But when and how to use that gun requires something else. Good judgement. Nothing can ruin your life more then using your gun at the wrong time and wounding or killing someone by mistake.
In this video from the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), Instructor Clint Smith with Thunder Ranch talks about the proper mindset and judgement on when and when not to use a firearm in home defense.
Prudent judgement on when, how, and what firearm to use is a must when defending your home. No one wants to accidentally shoot a loved one.
Train and practice in your home with your firearm to make sure you understand where all the lines of fire are located.
