A former New York City detective counseled viewers to “buy a can of wasp hornet spray in the hardware store or the supermarket [and] keep it by your bedside or the floor… An intruder hit with the spray will be...

Best Caliber for Self Defense: 9mm, .40 S&W or .45 ACP?

Of all of the firearms related quarrels, none rival the argument over which auto pistol cartridge is best for personal defense. This is partly because personal protection is very important, partly because folks assume there has to be a single best answer, and finally because there exists no definitive proof that one works any better than another.

Guns & Kids: Should you be armed around children?

From our friends at Second Call Defense ... A young couple needed a break. I’d agreed to babysit their children in my home.

The Best Coat Pocket Defensive Pistols

Have you ever tried to draw your defensive firearm while you are bundled up in a winter parka? Sometimes it’s harder than one might think. A friend recently sent me an email asking for some winter coat carry advice. He normally carries a 9mm Glock 19 inside the waistband.
