How many of you want to know what is a simple and very inexpensive choice for home defense? Well, if you are reading this, you're at least curious so here is one very sturdy (and controversial) example: Pistol cost: $139.99 Extra Magazine: $12.99 Folding Knife: $15.00 (from pawn shop) Standard 115 grain FMJ 9x19mm ammo: $14.99 (1 box of 50 rounds) Soft Pistol Case: $5.99 Total: $188.96 Does the pistol work fairly decent? Yep, it sure does.

Don't be intimidated by all the expensive pistols out there, and the common advice that you need something upwards of 600-1000 dollars to perform the task of home defense. If you can afford something more "mainstream", do it. If all you can afford is something like above, then don't hesitate to get one.
