19 Best Home Defense Guns

Defending your home is of paramount importance in this uncertain modern time. So we decided to put together a list of the best home defense guns.

Many states allow an individual to defend themselves with a firearm if they feel their safety is in jeopardy, known as a "stand your grouund" law. The same line of thinking, albeit with a different name applies to home break ins. Typically this is known as the castle doctrine, IE every person has a right to defend their home (castle.) Be absolutely sure to check your relevant state laws before anything else. Above all else, it's important to follow the law.

So what is the best gun for defending your home? A pistol? A rifle? A shotgun? We've cultivated a list below of some of our favorites. If you're interested in one of the guns below, you can click it to find the best prices we can find online for said home defense gun. If we missed your favorite, just let us know and we'll be happy to add it!
