Buying the gun is just one step in home defense. Make a plan. You need to know where everyone is and how to secure them if there is an event. As long as everyone is secure, you do not need to risk your safety to clear the house. Let the police do that. Find or make a good defensive position so the BG's are forced to come to you and are exposed.

I was taught to respect my elders but they are getting harder to find.
