While most people choose to use a handgun for self defense, rifles are another great option for keeping you and your loved ones safe.

Why rifles? Self defense usually brings to mind images of handguns and shotguns, but rifles, especially carbines, have a leg up on the competition. In an article on the Daily Caller, Michael Piccone pointed out that carbine rifles:

● Handle better than shotguns
● Are more powerful than handguns
● Have a higher magazine capacity
● Have a longer range

One well-regarded rifle is the Ruger Mini-14. The Ruger Mini-14 shoots the incredibly popular .223, which is more than enough to stop home intruders. The rifle is only 6.75 pounds and around 37 inches long, so it’s perfect for use in places like bedrooms or hallways.

Another choice is the AR-15, mentioned by Guns.com. Possibly one of the most popular rifles in the world, the AR-15 makes a great case for itself as a home defense weapon. It’s light, reliable, and can shoot a number of cartridges, although the most popular is the .223.

Using a rifle for self defense is something to think carefully about. Carbines, like most rifles, will cause permanent hearing loss when used without earmuffs. Rifles make the most sense as self defense weapons for those who live in their own home or in the suburbs or country, where you don’t have to worry about a rifle round piercing a thing wall in an apartment building and potentially injuring someone else.

Take care and make your choice carefully – you want the best rifle for self defense that you can find.
