Ken Crawford of Reno Guns & Range discusses an important home defense concept: how to move through your home with a handgun without endangering your family.
BUMP IN THE NIGHT
Whether you hear the proverbial bump in the night or for any reason believe you need to get your handgun because a lethal threat may be in your home, it’s critical not to endanger the people you are trying to protect when using home defense weapons.
Empirical data shows that the majority of unusual sounds heard in the middle of the night are not threats and do not require the homeowner’s going armed. There is almost never an actual need for the homeowner to use the handgun in home defense.
That being said, Ken demonstrates how to check your home for intruders while not threatening your family with your home defense weapon. He demonstrates two home defense tactics scenarios, with a barrier on the range representing a corner in a home.
