Folks often ask me what weapon do you use based on different distances in defensive scenarios.  Here are the primary weapons I trust and the distances for which they are utilized.

  • Close range, 25 yards or less single attacker – Smith @ Wesson M&P45 semi automatic handgun chambered for 45ACP.
  • Close range 25 yards or less multiple attackers – Mossberg 590A1 12 gauge pump action shotgun with ghost ring sights chambered for 2 3/4″ 00 buckshot.
  • Close quarters defense with adversaries out to 250 yards – DPMS AP4 Panther Carbine (AR15) semi automatic rifle using iron sights chambered for .223
  • Medium range defense with adversaries from 250 yards – 500 yards – Modified SKS with replacement stock and shell deflector and 3-9 x 40 scope chambered for 7.62 x 39
  • Long range defense with adversaries from 500 – 1000 yards – FAL L1A1 with 3-9 x 40 scope chambered for .308

      7.62 x 39 with detachable magazine and an after market scope mount system plus a shell deflector as this particuar rifle ejects straight up instead of off to the right making the shell deflector essential.
