When most shooters think of a home-defense situation, they automatically jump to what type of gun they’ll need. However, this isn’t the only aspect they need to consider.
The truth is there are other factors that can make or break the shooter’s home-defense experience. And, when it comes down to it, they will likely be much better off with this…
Top Gun Gear For At-Home Threats
The Gun Box
When it comes down to it, home defense doesn’t just affect the person with the gun. Not even close. It also drastically affects children, spouses, family members, and visitors. And, more than that, it exposes them to tools that provide dangerous and deadly force.
As such, gun owners have a legal and moral obligation to keep their firearms out of the hands of anyone and everyone that shouldn’t have access to them.
No matter how the shooter chooses to defend their home, one thing remains constant. They must be able to safely secure that weapon. Not only does this storage container prevent others from accessing it. It also should provide the shooter with fast, efficient access to the firearm when they need it most.
The Gun Box 2.o (in the picture above) does all this. But, one of its most attractive features it that it protects your firearms, without looking like a traditional gun safe. Visitors, family members, and even robbers may walk by and have no idea they’re walking past a firearm storage safe.
The Gun Box 2.0 comes in five different colors, and is accessible by cellphone, biometric and RFID technology. The box also comes in a variety of sizes, accommodating shotguns, carbines, or handguns. However, certain models even act as a Bluetooth speaker system.
The Gun Box 2.0 has both FAA and TSA approval, and features a motion-tamper alarm and internal light. It also automatically opens when the owner activates it.
The Gun Box 20 is incredibly innovative and user-friendly. And, beginning at just $149 this is one firearm accessory no shooter should ever be without.
NovX 9mm Defensive Ammunition
A shooter has various concerns during a home defense situation. However, one of the biggest is where the bullet will go if it doesn’t hit the assailant (or even if it passes through).The fact is, as the shooter, you alone are responsible for every round you fire – and where it lands. And excessive penetration poses an extreme liability.
Thankfully, there’s a safer and more effective option. First, NovX ammunition is made of part aluminum, part stainless steel. This makes each bullet resistant to corrosion. It also contains self-lubricating properties, which make them easier to feed.
However, the projectile itself is the most innovative. It’s made out of copper and polycarbonate, weighing in at just 65 grains. Plus, this is good news, since projectiles that are lighter move at a much higher velocity (about 1,655 feet per second).
NovX ammo is also non-expanding, and pack a punch by achieving lethal wounds instantly. They do this thanks to their spiral flutes, which push tissue away and thus create more damage than a bullet that expands.
This ammo is still new, and its stopping effects are not yet fully known. However, their high velocity and lightweight construction reduces recoil. It also lowers the chances of these projectiles penetrating walls (which reduces the risk of collateral damage).
NovX ammo is currently only available in 9mm.
