223

Last article I wrote about Choosing the Best Defensive Handgun Ammo. Now let’s take a look at finding the best self-defense ammo for your AR-15 platform rifle for those of you who consider using one as a defensive firearm. The approved list of 5.56/.223 by Dr. Gray Roberts who is the world’s leading authority on would ballistics, his information is credible. I recommend using barrier blind loads (in particular the Federal Fusion line due to the lower price, availability, and performance is inline with Gold Dot and other LEO bonded .223 rounds) over other types since you don’t know what type of physical environment you might be around when the unexpected happens.

Take a look of what kind of damage a .223 (contains graphic contents) round does to the body You won’t see this type of wounds with pistol.

Defensive Shooting Myths and Misconceptions: “I shoot that gun really well.”

sheild

As most of us know that today’s common caliber handgun rounds are not true power stoppers. Premium hollow points does help a lot. Just because your caliber preference is for the largest you can control and shoot in a relax state of mind at the range, it doesn’t mean you will effectively neutralize your assailant in the shortest time possible while under stress. Your are in a tense moment, you got a moving target advancing towards you, the faster you can place those followup shots on target, the better. The more rounds your pistol can hold is a plus. Remember, your goal is to stop the threat ASAP and survive!
Speed, precision, accuracy are the goals and recoil is they magic factor. The less the recoil the better you can control your gun. Those who can control a 10mm or a .44 magnum will probably be able to better control smaller calibers. “Shooting well” in the defensive context means being able to control realistic strings of fire, not single shots.

This is a great article and a must read for anyone who owns a handgun and carries one daily for self defense.

H&K VPN9 Torture test (video)

VP9TT

A lot of folks out there really like the H&K’s new striker fired pistol, the VP9. It feels great in your hands and shoots very accurate. But before you get one and fully trust your life with it, let’s find out how reliable it is by doing some torture tests. Thinking you’ll never go through such harsh environments or situations where your gun gets thrown, don’t be so sure that it will never happen. I never like to jump on a new product that just gets introduce in to the market. It needs to have a longer track record. I would say at least 4 years (but that’s a person preference) just like with the the M&P Shield. On the other hand, the Glock 43 is probably on great reliable gun but it just came out.

This torture test was done by The Military Arms Channel.
Can the VP9 take a beating and still function like the Smith & Wesson M&Ps and Glocks? Time to find out!

Choosing the Best Defensive Handgun Ammo

Choosing the Best Defensive Handgun AmmoEach and every day, more people throughout the country are getting their concealed carry permit. You want to load your handgun with the best hollow-point bullets that you can find in today’s scarce ammo market. That if you ever have to use it, you will have the best chance at stopping the threat. I personally recommend and prefer the 9mm for numerous reasons. It’s cheaper to train with, better recoil management, faster follow up shots, holds more rounds, great for first time shooters, for shooters of a wide age group, and the growing women audience. Premium 9mm thermal ballistics can match and exceeds some .40 and .45 calibers in some cases. 9mm has been around for over a century, it came a long way, improvements have been made. Using today’s premium rounds which will be discuss later in this article, there isn’t much difference in wounding between the 3 major handgun calibers. All three are great and will get the job done, the choice is yours.
