The Best Handgun For Home Defense

the best handgun for home defense

The Best Handgun For Home Defense

We can't just pick one so we're giving you our Top 10!

Home defense is becoming seemly popular especially in residential areas. Home owners want to have the comfort and knowledge that they are safe when they are inside their home. Making sure to have a self defense weapon on hand is more important than ever – especially depending on where you live. City and suburb dwellers will likely be protecting themselves against intruders and robbers. If you’re in the country, you may be defending your property and family against wild animals, not just burglars.

The most popular self-defense guns you will find are handguns – hence why we wrote this article about the best handgun for home defense. Not only are the effective, they are easy to handle and easy to safely hide away. When picking out the handgun you want to use for self defense there are a few things that you need to consider:

store safely but convienetyl 

Comfort

First things first you want to be comfortable using the gun you will be protecting your home with. As with any gun, it should feel good in your hand and be easy to shoot. If there are multiple people who will likely be using the gun (say you and your spouse) you will want to make sure that all parties feel comfortable shooting the gun. 

Practice

Practice makes perfect! If you have a specified gun for home defense, you likely aren’t shooting with it regularly. Make sure to take it out to a range and practice shooting with it. If you aren’t used to handling it, you won’t feel confident in your aim should you have to use it in self defense – which is not something you want to feel when threatened. Again, make sure that anyone who might handle the gun takes the time to practice as well. You want to make sure that everyone is confident in their shooting abilities. 

Regular Maintenance

Make sure that you are performing regular maintenance on your self defense gun. Just because you don’t regularly use it doesn’t mean that you can assume that it is in perfect working condition. In the same way you should regularly practice shooting, you should regularly schedule maintenance checkups so that you know that your gun will work when you need it.

Safe Storage

Safely storing a self defense weapon is imperative – especially considering you will likely keep the gun loaded. You will want to make sure that you store it somewhere that you can quickly get to in the event of an intruder, such as in your bedside table. As always you will want to have the safety on and do everything possible to secure the gun. If you have children in your home, make sure that your storage location is out of reach and secured to prevent them from accidentally handling the weapon. While you want the gun to be easily accessible to you, you must make sure that safety is a top priority when working with a self defense gun. 

A popular question from first time firearm purchasers are “what is the best handgun for home defense?” When asking this question you may receive many different answers as everyone has their favorite firearm. We have done our research and below are the top 10 best handguns for home defense:

The Best Gun Accessories for Hunting Season

Gun Accessories for Hunting Season

The Best Gun Accessories for Hunting Season

With the weather cooling down and hunting season upon us, it’s time to start thinking about getting your guns cleaned and sighted and dusting off your hunting clothes. Don’t forget to think about upgrading some of your gear so that you can have the most successful season possible this year. So, as your preparing to head out for your first hunt of the season, what are some of the best gun accessories that you want to consider adding to your pack? Many of your more specific supplies will depend on what you are hunting for this season, as well as where you are going to be hunting, so here a few general hunting accessories that you won’t want to go without this year.

Ammunition Case

A good ammunition case is one of the first things that you’ll want for your hunting expedition. A good case will keep your ammo dry, safe, and in one easily accessible area for whenever you need it. It’s a good idea to upgrade your ammunition from the box it came in, into a heavier duty box that is ready for any weather, landscape, or terrain depending on where your prey takes you. There are many great ammunition cases out there, on places like amazon.com or cabelas.com for reasonable prices – go find yourself one today!

Gun or Rifle Sling

Purchasing a reliable gun sling is important when it comes to preparing your gear for the upcoming season. A quality sling will last you years and allow you to hunt smart, safe, and quietly. There are hundreds of gun sling options including padded slings, leather slings, slings with ammo loops, and more! Carrying your gun safely is easier with a sling, not to mention a necessity to climb with your firearm if you are hunting from a tree!

ammunition case gun accessory

Gun Case

A quality gun case is one of the best gun accessories to have and is crucial for any hunter. A case protects your gun, allows for safe transit, as well as keeps it dry and in good condition. You can invest in a soft cover slip gun case which might cost a little less up front but will not provide you with the protection, or weatherproof capability that a hard case will. A quality firearm hard case might be more of an investment up front, but generally will provide a better environment for your firearm as well as possibly some extra storage space for you to carry some other things you might need.

Shooting sticks

Some people downplay the necessity of having shooting sticks along with them for hunting season. But if you’re hunting with a rifle or larger firearm, you’ll want shooting sticks to make sure that you can keep your gun as steady as possible to make the best shot that you can make. Shooting sticks allows hunters to expand their locations, not being confined to only locations where a blind, stand, or place where a “built in” gun rest exists. With shooting sticks you can go anywhere and hunt anywhere. This is important for any hunters who participate in hunting by stalking their prey! You have the freedom to move and set up wherever you need to in order to get the best shot.

Scope

Although having a scope is not always necessary, it’s highly recommended when it comes to hunting with a rifle and other select firearms. A scope can assist a hunter to make the best shot they can make – as well as increasing your range of shot! Invest in a good scope that will last you years of hunting seasons, you will not regret adding that quality glass to your collection. Purchasing a high quality scope may seem expensive up front, but it may be the difference in filling your tag or coming back empty handed. 

Other Useful Hunting Accessories You Won't Want To Be Without

There are a bunch of other various items that you will not want to leave the house without when it comes to hunting season this year. Be sure to pack your license and gear, along with the following items…

Rangefinder

A rangefinder is helpful for any hunter in discovering distance and executing the best shot possible - especially when you are in a new location that you might not know as well. When you first settle into your hunting spot be sure to range find a few distinct land marks and various distances as you may not have the time to do so in the moment

LED Flashlight

Consider packing an LED flashlight into your pack as well as a black light, and maybe in a hat light too! When dusk closes in on a hunter, it can be challenging to find your way back to camp, not to mention impossible to follow any sort of blood trail. Packing in at least a good flashlight will be useful for any hunter.

Extra Batteries

Spending time out in the wilderness is a sure way to drain your batteries quickly – make sure to pack some extra batteries for your flashlight, rangefinder, and any other battery-operated items, but also consider taking a portable charging port or battery pack. You can find portable battery packs almost anywhere, all you have to do is charge it up before you leave, and when your phone or other items are getting low, plug in!

Handheld GPS

Purchasing a handheld GPS is a great accessory to add to your hunting bag. You never know where your cell phone might drop service leaving you in an unfamiliar location. Garmin has tons of handheld GPS options that will fit anyone's budget.

Hearing Protection

Hearing protection might not be at the top of most hunters priority list, but we are here to tell you that it is an important piece of gear that people should have in their bags. Guns are loud and can damage your ears if not protected – so throw in a pair of ear plugs, just for good measure.

What Are The Benefits to Buying a Gun From Auction

Benefits Gun Auctions

What Are The Benefits to Buying a Gun From Auction

Your Guide To Online Firearms Auctions, Sales, & Companies

It’s no secret that online auctions provide many advantages to buyers around the country and world – and firearms auctions are no exception. Buying a gun on a live or online auction provides various benefits for buyers as they seek to purchase a new addition to their armory. You might be a little skeptical about buying firearms online, and we recognize that the idea might be a little daunting, but education is key – and we want to provide you with an idea of what some of the benefits are to buying a gun from auction and online when done properly.

Cheaper Price: Find a Deal Today!

One of the largest and first benefits that draws people to an online auction to buy a gun is generally the price of the item. Auctions are known to provide high quality items for a fraction of the cost – and this is a huge benefit for people seeking to purchase a new, used, or antique firearm. Although buying a firearms via online auction does not guarantee a lower purchase price, it’s still a viable option and just one of the many benefits that buyers can experience through the online auction experience.

Reliable & Reputable Sellers

When buying a gun online from an auction, you should take the time to make sure that the company or organization you are buying form possesses a federal firearms license. This is just one way to recognize reliable and reputable sellers. When buying a firearm or gun from a federally licensed dealer, such as SSL Firearms, you will be dealing with some of the most reputable firearms organizations. There are multiple steps required by the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to become a federal firearms licensee and by buying from an established, licensed organization, you can be sure that your transaction is in good hands. We would always recommend that you work with an organization or company to buy your firearm rather than making a purchase from an individual.

gun auction

Knowledgeable Sellers Who Have Done Their Research

Another benefit that you will experience through a gun auction is having the privilege to work with knowledgeable, staff that are actively doing their best to provide you with the most accurate and informational lot details as possible. The unique thing that many gun auctions feature is that a wide variety of firearms cycle through, anything from antique firearms, to hand guns, to hunting rifles. Staff members of gun auction companies (especially if they are federally licensed) have the responsibility to receive the maximum amount of details as possible from the previous owner and communicate them to the prospective buyers. They also have a responsibility to do their research as needed on each individual gun and firearm. (ie: in the case of an antique gun) If you are interested to meet our staff that handles our gun auctions as well as the team that is here to serve you throughout our firearms auctions take a look at our team page here!

Ability To Preview Firearms Before Buying

The ability to preview firearms before placing the winning bid is another huge benefit to the buyer experience. This time allows you as the buyer to take a closer look at each item that you are interested, and make sure that there are no hidden strings attached and that the gun meets your standards in what you are looking for. Inspection or preview times create a sense of transparency between buyer and seller allowing trust to be built by the buyer. Selling firearms is a big responsibility for organizations today and allowing a time for inspection and previews allows you to have confidence in not only the item that you are bidding on, but also allows the company behind the firearm to answer any questions that you might have regarding each item of interest. SSL Firearms provides inspection times for each of our individual lots being sold. Please contact our customer service team today if you have any questions about our gun auctions and preview times.

SSL Firearms is a federally licensed firearms dealer and is proud to serve the public through gun auctions and certified direct gun sales for over 7 years. We have sold over 10,000 firearms to date and are happy to help you get started with your firearm purchase.

What You Need to Know About Online Gun Auctions

online gun auctions

What You Need to Know About Online Gun Auctions

The beginner's guide to online firearm auctions

If you are looking for a new gun or firearm, your first idea is probably to head on over to your nearest gun shop, Dick’s sporting goods, or Cabela’s. While these stores are stocked with everything that you need for your new gun, your selection will be limited to the most recently released firearms. If you are looking for a wider selection you might want to consider buying a gun online. Online gun auction sites (such as SSL Firearms) specialize in selling everything from modern handguns to collectible, antique rifles – often at a lower price than you would find at a sporting goods store. The internet gives you access to a wide range of sellers – including police departments – and thus a wide variety of firearms that you wouldn’t be able to find anywhere else.

If you are new to online gun auctions, you will probably have a few questions regarding safety and the process as a whole. We hope that you do have questions! We take our gun and firearm sales very seriously and want to make sure that you are comfortable with our auction process before bidding. We came up with a list of things that we think are important for you to know before heading into any online firearm auction and hopefully it will help familiarize you with our system.

What You Should Know Going into One of Our Online Gun Auctions:

We are a FFL Dealer

Concerned about the safety of selling guns online? It makes sense that you might be concerned, after all, selling over the internet takes out the face to face transaction between the buyer and the seller that one generally has in a sales transaction, but you don’t need to be worried. We have a Federal Firearms License (FFL) from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. This license gives us the ability to legally deal firearms. There are many steps to take when applying for the license with the government, so you can be sure that we take our security and privilege to have our FFL seriously.

We Still Follow Local, State and Federal Laws

Just because we are selling online doesn’t mean that the rules no longer apply. Like we said, we take firearm safety very seriously, including the sales process. The general requirements to purchase a firearm from one of our online gun auctions are as follows:

  • Handgun buyers must be at least 21 years of age or older
  • Long gun buyers must be at least 18 years of age or older
  • A buyer must comply with all state and federal requirements
  • If a buyer does not have a Michigan Concealed Pistol License they must pass a NICS background check at the time of the gun transfer

Speaking of transfers, it is required that all guns and firearms go through a FFL gun transfer in order for there to be legal ownership of a gun. After you have won a firearm in one of our online gun auctions, you will have to come to our facilities to pick up the item and complete the transfer. Only the person whose name is on the invoice can come and retrieve the gun. If someone tries to have a friend or family member come instead it would be considered a federal crime that could result in a felony conviction sentence of 10 years in jail and a fine of up to $250,000. If a buyer lives out of state, we are more than happy to work with them to find another FFL dealer in their area who would be able to conduct the transfer on our behalf.

Our Sellers are Just Like You

Wondering who you’re buying from? Typically, people just like you! While occasionally we may get a firearm that belonged to someone famous, for the most part the firearms are put up for auction by normal people like you. We have conducted estate sales, selling off large quantities of guns and firearms, as well as single handguns and rifles for individuals. The one exception to this is that we work with police departments to sell police seized guns to bring revenue back to the departments. So, unless you are also part of a police department, the seller might not be just like you – but we can vouch for them.

You Can See the Guns in Person

Many people sometimes have issues with online shopping because they can’t physically touch and inspect what they are purchasing. The same thing can happen with online gun auctions! We know that sometimes you just need to feel it in your hand before you can commit to bidding. If you would like to, please feel free to schedule an appointment to come inspect the firearms that you are interested in. A huge advantage to online auctions is that the listings are up early, providing you with plenty of time to do your own research about the specific firearm that you are looking at. We try to provide as much information as possible surrounding the condition of the firearm up for auction so that you can be as informed as possible going into your firearm purchase.

If you have any further questions about the process or the advantages of buying a gun or firearm through an online auction, please contact us today! While we have covered some of the big points, we don’t want you to feel uncertain about anything – no question is too small! If you are interested in selling with us, please feel free to contact us here so that we can set up a time to talk about your collection or individual gun.
