Today’s episode is sponsored by our very own USA Firearm Training’s American Gun Law Course. What would you pay to sit down with an attorney and ask him all the questions you wanted answers to about gun and self-defense law? Well you can get all these answers in a 3-hour online video training course for much less than even an hour’s worth of time spent with an attorney. We spent 2.5  days sitting down with one of the best criminal defense attorneys asking him to explain and break down the laws, and recorded it all. This fantastic training is available for pre-order now!

    Great podcast guys.

    This type of situation is a scary one for me. Why do you ask. Well my home has a split floor plan. Half my family is on one side of the home and my wife and I are on the other side. So clearing the house would be difficult and dangerous due to the fact if I have to engage a threat (bad guy) rounds could be off target and they could hit one of my 3 kids on the other side of the house. So I have a two choices; 1) Grab my shotgun and use that or 2) Grab my Glock 35 (with a 20 round magazine) and use that. Now the shotgun would be my first choice but using a long gun traversing hall ways could be bad. Why do you ask. If a trained suspect was waiting he could grab the barrel of the shotgun while I turned the corner and than a struggle would happen. So than my second choice is a handgun and it could be a better choice because I can keep the weapon at the ‘high ready’ (weapon pointed straight ahead but arms all the way towards (pressed) my chest. This is a great tactic for close quarters as it keeps the weapon close to you and when moving around tight 90 degree corners (yea yea, cut the pie like a SWAT officer) it keeps the weapon system (handgun) close to you so if a bad guy is hiding around the corner he would not be able to knock the weapon out of my hand or take it away from me.

    Wow, I could go all day about this scenario and all the variables. The key is you have to train and also train your family what to do if the ‘poop’ hits the fan. You should have a plan for all of them in case an intruder has gained entry into your home. As I tell all my family, students and friends; ‘Prepare the battlefield for success’

    Excuse any typos due to me using a smart phone to type this.
