The Art of
Home Defense
uring a recent trip to the famed Gunsite Academy
in Paulden, Arizona, I had the opportunity to tour
the residence of the late Col. Jeff Cooper, Gunsite
founder and father of the Modern Technique of the Pistol.

We were hosted by Coopers widow, Janelle, who energetically


explained the design features of
the home. Cooper was a master
of defensive pistolcraft, but his
residence, built on the Gunsite
grounds, is a key reminder for
anyone who takes home defense
seriously: Its about much more
than the gun.
Cooper designed his Sconce,
or fortress, to be utterly defensible
and to give himself the ultimate
advantage against intruders. As a
student of residential architecture
and its application for defense,
Cooper employed known design
elements from around the world
to fortify his dwelling place.
Theres a narrow window overlooking the front entryway thats
accessible from the inside of the
kitchen; the window pops out to
provide a shooting lane. Hallways
were designed to be long and narrow, giving the home defender a
tactical advantage against an intruder. A steep spiral staircase
difcult to charge up and down
runs down to the gun room/
arsenal and up to Coopers ofce,
which also serves as a 360-degree
lookout for miles around the
property. Bedrooms are at the end
of a long hallway on the main
oor, and a steel gateoperated
by lever from the master bed-

roomseals off the living quarters at night. Elaborate, for sure,


but Coopers Sconce nonetheless
illustrates the need for a comprehensive home defense plan.
These pages, which focus on
home defense, are lled with exceptional gear and advice to help
you defend your home. As a current Gunsite instructor, retired
police ofcer and SWAT team
member, Bob Whaley gives you
expert advice on how to build
the ultimate home defense plan
(page 34). Richard Mann takes a
comparative look at the shotgun
and AR as viable options for defense (page 26), while David Maccar spotlights a defensive shotgun
option from BoomStix (page 36).
David Hart has the rundown on
quick-access safes (page 20), a
must-have when building a complete home defense plan. Read
up, enjoy, and remember: Now
is the perfect time to revisit your
home defense plan.

Tritium Sights
Most factory handgun sights are all right,
until the lights get dimmed. From then
on, tritium sights reign supreme.
The trouble with most factory handgun sights is when it gets dark, you cant
see them, unless you possess infrareddetecting eyes.
Of particular interest to those who
purchase HD or SD guns is the existence

FIRST LOOK // SIG SAUER MCX

SIGs recently released MCX


demonstrates the true meaning
of versatility and modularity.

First Look

SIG Sauer MCX


IG Sauer has long been an innovator in the firearms industry, but in the past couple of years the
company has pushed the limits of innovation with
some of its new products. One of these groundbreaking
new additions for 2015 is the MCX, which represents a major development in terms of firearm modularity.

Built around SIGs reliable,


gas-operated, short-stroke piston
system, the SIG Sauer MCX comes
with several features designed to
make it as mission-adaptable as
possible. The rst of these is an
auto-regulating gas system that
allows shooters to switch between
supersonic and subsonic loads, or
unsuppressed and suppressed operation, without manually adjustgundigest.com

ing the gas settings. There is no


change in reliability when transitioning between these loads or operations.
In addition, the MCXs modular design easily congures to
chamber and re three different
calibers: .300 BLK, 5.56 NATO
and 7.62x39mm. The MCXs aluminum KeyMod handguard is
easily removed, and the rearm

comes with a quick-change barrel system for swapping between


.300 BLK and 5.56 NATO barrels.
Converting to 7.62x39mm simply
requires an additional bolt face
change. While the MCX is optimized for suppressed use with .300
BLK, it performs with any of these
cartridges.
The MCX utilizes a unique upper that is compatible with all MilSpec AR lowers, so shooters can
also upgrade their standard system
by pairing it with the MCX upper
and a SIG MCX Stock Kit. An interesting feature of the MCX is the
groundbreaking recoil assembly
that does not require the use of a
buffer tube, which allows for foldAUGUST 2015 GunDigest the magazine

ing and other unique stocks.


The MCX is not only exible in
terms of load selection and caliber, it
also serves both right- and left-handed
shooters with ambidextrous AR-style
controls. These include an ambidextrous safety, magazine release and
charging handle. The magazine release
itself is oversized for quicker manipulation in a high-stress scenario.
Other features available on the
MCX include a unique, fully locked
and closed rotating bolt system,
which features a nickel-coated bolt
and carrier; a MIL-STD 1913 Picatinny top rail that spans 17 inches
from the receiver to the front of the
handguard; SIG Sauers proprietary
pistol grip; and SIG Sauer ip-up iron
sights.
Initially, there are three variants

of the SIG Sauer MCX available to


civilian shooters: a semi-automatic
carbine rie version with a 16-inch
barrel, a short-barreled rie (SBR)
version with a 9-inch barrel, and a pistol version with a 9-inch barrel. The
rie and SBR variants will be available with four different stock options,
including a low-pro le skeletonized
stock that folds to the side. The pistol
version comes with SIGs new sidefolding SBX Pistol-Stabilizing Brace.
The SIG MCX Carbine is available for $1,866, while the SBR variant
and SIG Sauer MCX Pistol with SBX
Pistol-Stabilizing Brace are available

12-Gauge Shotshell
If there is one shotshell that holds all titles as
most versatile, most popular, and most varied
in loading, the 12-gauge is it.
i Except for the .22
rimre, by almost any meeasure the 12-gauge
is the most popular sportin
ng chambering ever
offered. It is commonly av
vailable and loaded
with shot made of lead, steeel,
tungsten/iron,
tungsten/
polymer, or bismuth. Current shot charges range
from about 7/8-ounce to
o
2 ounces. Common sh
hot
sizes range from No. 9 through 000
Buck. Slugs are typically 1 ounce or 1
ounce, but other weights are available. Further, it is
relatively simple to have a moderately sized batch of
custom loaded 12-gauge ammunition (with either an
odd-sized shot or reduced velocity), produced by a
major manufacturer. To gain a true perspective, just
consider that, at one time in this country, there were
literally thousands of distinct 12-gauge loadings offered. In 1995, 12-gauge commercial offerings from

signicant commercial manufacturers offer

shot offerings. In fact,
v
commercially

c
loadings exceed the total of all currently
available high-powered rie loadings for
all
a cartridges by a signicant margin. The
12-gauge has been and is still used for police
and military applications and, as recently as
the
th Vietnam conict, was the preferred gun of
front-line troops for jungle combat. Arguably, no gun
is more intimidating or more effective for home-defense situations. The 12-gauge is also at home, given
proper loads, hunting big game up through whitetail
deer at ranges to about 100 yards, with some shotguns and loads stretching useful range further. The
key word here is versatility. If any chambering offers that characteristic, this is the one. GDTM

gunsmithing part-time,

Currently there is a HUGE Demand for Gunsmiths.
Millions of guns need fixing. Most of the old-time gunsmiths have
retired and havent been replaced because previously there
wasnt a cost effective way to quickly train individuals to become
gunsmiths and help them make money fast. This has created a
chronic shortage and a huge opportunity for you.
Gunsmithing is a recession-proof business. Even in tough times
people spend money to get their guns repaired or professionally
cleaned. Its a lot cheaper than buying a new one and they still
want and need them for hunting and self defense. You can even
work part-time right from your home. Your one time

investment in the course could provide you


with a lifetime of income and opportunity.

How AGIs Professional Gunsmithing Course changed Robert
Briskeys life: Within one short year I opened up my own firearms
repair and custom refinishing shop. My business is exceeding my
dreams. The freedom I enjoy being self-employed is priceless.
Without the opportunity that AGIs course offered, my dream would
be just that, a dream. Robert T. Briskey, Battle Hen Armory
You dont have to wait to start gunsmithing! It only takes a
relatively small investment to get started. As soon as you begin
watching the videos you will be able to start making repairs.
Anytime you run into a problem, you just pop in the DVD on the
subject or model gun that you need information on and do a
quick review.
Couldn't get a better recommendation: I made the mistake of taking
another cheaper gunsmithing course. I knew I made a mistake when I
read in one of my lesson books that for further instructional help, go
to the AGI website and get a DVD on the subject. When other
schools are giving YOU that kind of acknowledgement, then you
have to be the best." Gordon Fisher

HANDGUNS // REVIEW

HK returns with its new P30SK,


a subcompact version of its
larger P30 semi-auto.
BRAD FITZPATRICK

CARRY
n the late 2000s, Heckler & Koch of Germany introduced the U.S. to its P30 semiautomatic pistol, a double-action, polymer-framed pistol with a high-capacity magazine and a revolutionary polygonal barrel. The response was overwhelmingly positive,
and the P30 became a hit with American shooters who appreciated its high level of engineering and fastidious attention to detail. After all, HKs catchphrase is Keine Kompromisse!, or
No Compromise! for those not fluent in German. Since the slick German semi-auto was so
successful stateside, it seemed only natural that HK would target the burgeoning American
concealed carry market. And it did, just not right away.

The HK P30SK (SubKompact)


is a scaled down 9mm version of
the popular P30 semi-auto. Even
though the P30SK simply looks like
a shrunken P30, it took HK three
full years of engineering and development to translate the full sized
semi-auto into a compact carry version. The mechanics remain much
the same between the two guns,
but the ergonomics of the P30SK
16

GunDigest the magazine AUGUST 2015

were redesigned to make this a


stand-alone handgun instead of a
cropped and chopped version of
another model. The SK shares the
same basic DNA as its alterer bruder,
including a single-action/doubleaction design with large ambidextrous slide stop levers, luminescent
three-dot sights and a polymer
frame with a nitro-carburized steel
slide with a corrosion-resistant

blued nish, but with a much more


compact design that makes it a
great choice for concealed carry.
While striker-red guns are all
the rage, including HKs own VP9
and VP40, double-action semi-autos such as the P30SK still have a
loyal following and still make perfect sense as a concealed carry gun.
The double-action trigger pull is
heavyabout 12 poundsbut its
gundigest.com

smooth, and its easy to pull this gun


from a concealed holster and re the
rst shot quickly and accurately. Subsequent shots feature a much lighter
5.5-pound single-action trigger pull
with modest take-up and a crisp, clean
break. Most shooters dont really appreciate how good or bad a trigger pull
really is until they begin ring shots
from a sandbag on the range. Bad triggers make this a real chore because
they are heavy and creepy, never offering a clean snap. The team at HK
did a great job on the trigger with this
gun, and after a few shots off the bags
I could predictably take up the slack in
the trigger, press evenly and count on
being surprised at the shot. The trigger
pad is also very wide and comfortable.
The P30SK grip geometry is excellent. It features a textured side and rear
panels that are neither slick nor so aggressive they hurt the shooters hand.
The cross-directional texturing keeps
the gun rmly planted in your paw,
and the P30SK, like the P30 before
it, features interchangeable rear and
side panels. Each new gun comes with
three different backstraps and three
different sets of side panels, so when
HK claims this gun offers a perfect t,
it means it. Removing the rear and
side inserts requires the use of a punch
and a hammer, but once the pin is free
you can mix and match component
parts until you nd the perfect combination.
The P30SK is available with or without a manual safety, which is understandable. Some shooters vehemently
support carrying guns with no manual
safety, while the other camp is equally
dedicated to manual-safety-only guns.
No matter which doctrine you follow,
theres a P30SK for you. Both versions
come with hammer and ring pin safeties but no magazine disconnect, so
you can re the gun without the mag

Six shots red at 7 yards using the P30SK


outtted with a Crimson Trace laser and
Noslers new Defense loads. This kind of accuracy isnt required from a concealed carry
pistol, but it offers substantial peace of mind.

FEATURES // HOME DEFENSE

AR
vs

Shotgun
Which is the better choice
for home defense?
RICHARD MANN

hoosing a weapon for home defense is a serious


matter, and as far as Im concerned, a handgun
should be an integral part of any home defense plan.
Why? Unlike a shotgun or an AR, handguns are easy
to keep with you at all times. With a long gun, youll
have to go fetch it when the balloon goes up. A handgun, however, does not constitute a comprehensive home defense plan.
Handguns are personal defense weapons, and while one might
very well be needed during a home protection scenario, if a long
gun is wielded with authority and precision, the handgun will remain in its holster.
Basic Differences

Both the AR and the shotgun have


more reach than a handgun. Both deliver a lot more power, and both are
easier to shoot with precision. Im not
a shotgun kind of guy. This is not in
any way a reection on the usefulness of the weapon systemits just
representative of my taste in rearms.
As biased as I might be, I appreciate
and understand that in some cases
the shotgun might be the best answer.
WHOLESALE
INQUIRIES
WELCOME

The shotgun has long been a popular weapon for home defense. Some
would argue this is due to its suitability to the role, but I believe its more
likely due to the shotguns prevalence
in society. Uncle Bob likely kept a shotgun behind the kitchen door because a
shotgun was the only gun Uncle Bob
had. Carbinesshort rieshave always cost more than shotguns and

require more training for most folks


to shoot them accurately. For the onegun homestead, a high-power rie was
not the best tool for small game or ying foul.
Just because old wives tell us the
shotgun is the best home defense gun
does not make it so. Many of those old
wives were probably married to Uncle
Bob. At the basic level, the shotgun allows for a slight bit of point of aim/
point of impact variance. This is because it disperses shot into a pattern
that increases in size with range. The
farther the target is away from the
shotgun, the easier it is to hit. But everything has its limits, and the shotguns limits are not that far away.

Ballistic Differences
Ballistically speaking, the AR-15 carbine chambered for the .223 Rem.
is more powerful than the shotgun.
With a nominal impact velocity of
1,250 feet per second (fps), a single
54-grain 00 buck pellet will have 187

ft.-lbs. of kinetic energy. This is very


similar to a single bullet red from a
high velocity .22 LR. If you can hit
your attacker with every pellet in a 00
buckshot blast, it would be like shooting the bad guy a bunch of times, all at
the same time, with a .22.
On the other hand, a 55-grain bullet red from a .223 AR-15 carbine
will strike with about 1,000 ft.-lbs.

of energy. But all that energy will be


directed at a single spot. To further
exaggerate the difference in terminal
performance, shot pellets are non-expanding; they will only punch a caliber-size hole through the bad guy. A
centerre rie bullet will expand and
sometimes violently fragment, creating a much more ferocious and painful wound. Of course shotguns can

also re slugs, and slugs are wickedly


powerful projectiles that make big
holes and are hard to stop. A -ounce
slug from a 12 gauge will deliver about
twice the energy of any .223 Rem. load
and will make a very, very big hole going in and coming out. Hit your target
with a slug and it will suffer. And as
Sir Isaac Newton so aptly explained, so
will your shoulder.

Ammunition Options
Whether its shot or slug, shotguns
throw a large payload. Nine 00 buck
pellets will weigh about 480 grains,
which is about nine times heavier than
a .223 bullet. To push this cargo out
the barrel it takes lots of energy, and
that push goes both ways. In short,
shotguns kick hardabout eight to 10
times harder than an AR-15. Recoil is
the prime detractor to the shotgun; its
the reason many cannot shoot it well
and the reason many do not want to
shoot it at all.
Aside from recoil, there are other
considerations. The most popular
defensive load for the shotgun is 00
buck. These 00 buck pellets will penetrate very deepabout 20 inches in
10-percent ordnance gelatin. These
pellets are also capable of passing
through most interior walls and easily through any, if not every, wall in a
mobile home. If youre worried about
hitting a family member in an adjoining room or if you live in a trailer
park, double-ought buckshot is probably not the way to go. The solution
can be smaller shot; at conversational
distances #6, #7 and even #8 shot is
unimaginably destructive to the human body.
The downside to all shot shells is
range. Much past 25 yards, shot becomes terminally ineffective for two
reasons. First, the pattern size expands
to the point that a large portion of
your shot will miss the target, and the
resulting wound is less concentrated.
Secondly, round shot is not very ballistically efcient and loses energy fast.
If the engagement distance extends
past 30 yards, it would be advisable to
switch to a slug.
Finally, it only makes good sense to
choose the ammo for your AR with the
same care and concern. To eliminate

LEFT: The Hevi-Duty loads from Hevi-Shot utilize frangible pellets that will not penetrate interior walls. Not a bad idea for a shotgun that will
be used in a home defense setting. RIGHT: Corbons new Urban Response load for the .223 is a great home defense option. It will deliver a
lethal blow, with limited penetration, while circumventing the worry of passing through interior or exterior walls.

penetration through interior and exterior walls, look to fragilely constructed


varmint bullets or specialty loads like
those in the Hornady TAP line. If,
however, you are a hopeless bachelor
living alone out past the landll, you
can opt for any shotgun or AR load
you like. In fact, in the most rural settings, deep-penetrating loads might
be a good idea; sometimes four-legged
predators must be dealt with, too.

gun in a defensive situation could fall


on another member of the household.
ARs are generally more compact, often
lighter and much easier for most to
shoot with precision. If recoil is a big
deal to you and your family but you
prefer the shotgun, dont overlook
the 20-gauge. It has less recoil but is
still very effective. It might surprise
you to learn my primary home defense long gun is a Smith & Wesson

M&P15-22 loaded with a magazine full


of CCI Stingers. No, a .22 is not the
most lethal long arm, but everyone
who lives in my home can operate it
with enough precision and speed to
deal with anything from a bad guy to
a rabid fox. The key is not to rely on
a home defense plan built around one
gun. Thats why I also have a Mossberg
590A1 12-gauge in the den and a handgun basically on me at all times. GDTM

The Sensible Choice


Practically speaking, theres not a great
deal of difference between an AR and
a shotgun for home defense. It is unlikely you will need the capacity or
extended reach of the AR. Of course
as soon as thats said, youll be accosted by a horde of zombies charging
across the back pasture. Shotguns are
not known as precision weapons, but
if equipped with good combat sights
and loaded with quality slugs, they
can easily keep three shots inside a
3-inch circle at 50 yards. If you choose
your ammunition wisely, from a pure
ballistic standpoint, its a toss up. The
simple answer is to choose the one
you can shoot the best. If you nd the
shotgun intimidating, it will never
be a good choice. All the same, you
might not be the person who has to
wield it. The need to deploy the long

Gun owners
set to get free
survival food
armers vow to keep up
with the rush to supply
every gun owner who
calls toll free and beats
the deadline to claim their free
72-hour survival food kit

In a crisis, your number one need


is food. But not just any food.
What everyone needs is good-for25-years survival food that you can
rely on when the time comes that
food is scarce.
Well right now in what is truly
an unprecedented move 72-hour
Food4Patriots survival food kits are
being given away to readers who
are gun owners as long as they call a
special toll-free hotline and beat the
program deadline.
This is all happening because
were worried that the people in
Washington have an agenda that
is about more than just guns and
ammo, explained Frank Bates, a
spokesman for the company.

Military-grade Mylar pouches ensure these


meals stay fresh for 25 years or more.

Control the food, control


the people.
We already know that theyre
coming after our guns ... food could
be next, and none of us wants to
ever rely on this or any government
to keep our families fed.
Experts say that everyone should
have at least a 72-hour supply of
non-perishable food on hand at

GunDigest the magazine AUGUST 2015

Gun owners are ocking to claim their free 72-hour survival food kit before the deadline.

all times.
Unfortunately, too many people
make the mistake of choosing
products that were never intended
to be survival food. They end up
with expensive stockpiles that are
too big and too bulky to move,
should an emergency force them to
leave their homes.

Chances are, their foods were not


packaged for a 25-year or more
shelf life. Most are not.
And if they were unlucky enough
to stock up on MREs, theyll be
depending on a product that can
actually make you sick if you eat it
for too long.
Food4Patriots survival foods are
made of the nest ingedients, grown
and packaged right here in the USA.
They taste great. They provide the
nutrition you need. And they were
developed specically for use in
emergencies although a lot of folks
sometimes like them for a quick
meal or snack.
Bates explained, These are
home-style meals that we package
in airtight and resealable militarygrade Mylar pouches that keep them
fresh and delicious until theyre
needed. Your family will enjoy
meals much like theyre already
eating every day.
Every 72-hour kit thats being
given away contains four servings
each of such familiar dishes as
Liberty Bell Potato Cheddar Soup,
Blue Ribbon Creamy Chicken Rice,
Travelers Stew, and the always loved
Grannys Homestyle Potato Soup.

The companys usual price for the


72-hour kit is $27.00 plus shipping.
But gun owners who act quickly
can pay only the $9.95 shipping and
handling fee through this program.
Were trying to ensure no gun
owner gets left out, but they have
to hurry because we have a limited
supply of the 72-hour kits we can
give away, Bates warned. Once
word got out that gun owners
could get free survival food, our
phones have been ringing off the
hook. We actually had to add
extra agents to keep up with the
incredible demand.

There is still time to take


advantage of this free food offer,
but be aware the program will
end no matter what at midnight,
September 30, 2015.
HOW TO GET YOUR FREE
72-HOUR SURVIVAL FOOD KIT:
Food4Patriots is committed to giving a
free 72-hour kit to everyone who calls their
toll-free hotline. Just give the agent the
approval code shown below. Provide your
delivery instructions and agree to pay the
$9.95 shipping and handling fee. Thats all
there is to it.

Approval Code: 72FREE

Please note: Food4Patriots says they
will continue to give away these 72-hour kits
for as long as their supplies last.

may be busy. Just keep calling and you will
get through.

possibly no more terrifying incident to imagine than an attack on
your home, your castle, the one place on
earth where you should feel safe.
Like any other environment, your

a sociopath to advance his warped

a combination of all the above. The
odds of any one home or family becoming the victim of such a vicious

crime are remoteuntil it happens


to you. Like any other safety issue,
acceptance and preparation are
the keys to avoiding or surviving a
home invasion event.
In 31 years of law enforcement,
Ive seen the unlawful entry of anothers home for the purpose of
committing a crime therein take a
variety of shapes. Theres the sneak
thief who makes entry by surreptitious means to steal property while
the occupants are distracted. Ive
been involved in investigations resulting from a homeowner inter-

rupting a burglary, which then led


to assaults or hostage takings.
The crime that conjures up the
worst mental images, however, involves the direct assault on a home
by an individual or group bent on
victimizing the lawful occupants. If
youre the one caught in the middle
of a home invasion, the reason or
method the criminal takes to execute his or her plan means nothing
in that moment. You just know a
very bad thing is happening. Once
weve accepted that bad things happen and that there are evil people
gundigest.com

in the world willing to kill us or our


family, we can start planning our response. That response begins with
hardening the target. If you can make
it harder for the bad guys to gain entry
or signicantly delay their entry, you
might just persuade them to go to an
easier target.
Start with a solid-core door with
good locks. And in reference to those
locks, use them! I cant believe there
are still pilgrims out there in this day
and age that dont lock their doors.
Alarms are good things, but like door
locks, only if we use them.
Those doors need to be surrounded
by a reinforced jam. I spent 15 years
assigned to my departments full-time
SWAT team. In most of the forced
entries we made, the door and lock
maintained their integrityit was the
door jam that gave way. Ive observed
the same characteristics in many burglary investigations.
Make sure your windows are secure
and limited in the distance they can
be opened. The method you use to
achieve that limiting factor must be
easily removable in a crisis such as a
re. Dont trap yourself. Glass should
be capable of withstanding impact to
a reasonable extent. Were making it
harder for the crooks to gain entry, but
were not building Fort Knox.
Lighting should ll all voids and
dark holes, enough to prevent someone from exploiting the darkness.
Add low, thick landscaping with a lot
of thorns, and youve made reasonable strides to keeping someone from
breaching your inner perimeter.

Next, have a means to verify who


is at your door without opening it.
Peepholes, cameras and speakers are
all viable methods that are easy to install and use. Demand identication
and call businesses to verify the persons name before you let them inside.
False identication is a common ruse
to gain easy entry to a home. If the
person on the other side of the door
doesnt like it, thats too bad for them.
In my experience, the more indignant
the interloper, the more likely hes
up to something no good. Make sure
you know who people are before you
agree to have them perform any work
in your house. That includes contractors and their employees. More than
one family has become the victims

of heinous crimes committed by individuals who knew them through a


prior business contact. Get to know
your neighbors and the rhythm of
your neighborhood. Look for things
and people that appear out of place.
Criminals will conduct surveillance on
a target, especially if theyre planning
a complex crime. By conducting a low
level of counter-surveillance, you just
might pick up this stage of planning
and interdict the crooks plan before
its launched. If you see something,
say something.
If all else fails, have a response plan
to repel invaders. Start by knowing
the law. If you have a castle doctrine,

SHOTGUNS // REVIEW

With a bite that matches its


bark, Da Boom from BoomStix
is one mean home defender.
DAVID MACCAR

Feel Da Boom
here is a world of hunting shotguns, replete with
high-end autoloaders and beautifully filigreed double barrels, as well as budget pumps and Realtree
covered turkey guns. Then there is the tactical shotgun world,
full of black-as-black-can-be pumps and semi-autos covered in
rail segments topped with high-end red dots, with pistol grips
and stocks that adjust and fold. In between is the gray area of
the home defense shotgun.

If you ask some, the perfect shotgun for home defense is a simple,
old school double barrel with two
rounds of 00 buck ready to rock.
Its classic, pretty immune to user
error and intimidating. But its a
clunker to reloadif you remembered to grab a couple extra shells
while patrolling the house in your
underwear, after being awoken in
36

GunDigest the magazine AUGUST 2015

the dark night by sounds of an intruder.


Some obviously choose a pump
for home defense, again, because
of its reliability. This leads them to
the myriad options of tactical shotguns on the market, and to the possibility of being overwhelmed by
breacher barrels and ghost rings. A
lot of people end up with a tactical

shotgun that wont ever see the inside of a SWAT teams armory and
has more than they need, or worse,
the wrong components.
Mark Dunn at BoomStix HD
(home defense) has endeavored
to ll that gap between hunting
and tactical shotguns by creating a
catalogue of mostly Mossberg 500s
and Remington 870s with different congurations of barrel length,
magazine tube length, stocks and
accessories, all optimized for home
defense.
Dunn said he chose 500s and
870s because theyre rock solid.
When a bad guy is kicking in
your front door, you want to make
sure that when you pull the trigger,
it goes boom, and those two modelsyou can use them and abuse
them, and theyll still re, he said.
gundigest.com

The company has a jocular lilt to it.


Mark isnt known as the CEO but as
The Big Ka-Boom-a, or TBK. His shotguns sport names like Sweet Baby Jane
and Base No Disgrace. But when you
get down to it, BoomStix is about nononsense, reliable, rugged shotguns
that are easy to operate and tailored
for defending your home and loved
ones.
There are six congurations to
choose from, sold exclusively from the
BoomStix HD website. The site also
features a Bild Ur Stix function that
lets you customize a Mossberg 500,
Remington 870, Hatsan Escort MP Tactical, Hatsan Escort AimGuard or SRM
Arms Model 1216 12-gauge autoloader
from the base model up.
Mark sent me their rst and agship
creation, Da Boom, built on a Mossberg 500. When I rst looked at it, the
gun seemed a little unwieldy, with a
20-inch barrel and matching sevenround magazine tube (both from
Mossberg) and an ATI Talon pistol grip
with no stock.
The rst time I hefted it, my worries
were dispelled. The gun feels handy.
The length is right. It doesnt feel too
short, as stockless shotguns sometimes
do, but it feels, and is, extremely maneuverable inside the tight spaces of
an apartment doorway or hall.
Mounted on the tri-rail slide forend
was a vertical foregrip with a pressure
switch attached to a tac-light/laser
sight combo.
It appears extremely tactical if you
dont know what youre looking at,
which is the problem new or novice gun buyers face when choosing a
home defense shotgun. Whats more
important than whats there, perhaps,
is whats not.
There is a rail running under the
forend, to which the grip and taclight/laser are attached, taking up all
the space. There are two small rail
sections at the 9 and 3 oclock positions on the forends left. Thats itno
top rail, no rail bits near the muzzle.
Theres no muzzle brake with a ercelooking jagged edge. The idea behind
this gun is that laser sights work; thats
gundigest.com

what this gun has on board, so use it.


In the dark, youre never going to
nd your bead, so the laser puts you
on target in seconds in a life or death
emergency, Dunn said. I think you
do need a laser for a shotgun. If that
guns next to your bed or wherever

you decide to keep it, you dont have


to shoulder it and try to nd a sight in
the dark. You just pop that light on,
see that its a bad guy and the red dots
on his chest, and threat down.
A simple, low-prole brass bead
sight on the barrel serves as a backup

to the laser. Theres no ghost sights to


get snagged on fabric, no red dot that
has to be activated. Simply grab the
gun where you always doby both
gripspush the pressure switch and
the target is illuminated and the laser
ips on.
Despite heated Internet forum arguments, laser sights are a viable and
useful sighting system for a shotgun,
especially one set up for defense. If
its zeroed to the center of the shotguns pattern, a laser sight provides

quick target acquisition, a guarantee


of a clean line of sight (if the laser is
getting to the target without interruption, its a sure bet the projectile will
too) that will work in any low-light
situation, and it is more than effective
at the ranges one would encounter in
a home.
The biggest criticism of laser sights
is they are hard to see in daylight and
some well-lit environments. Those
shouldnt be primary concerns in a
home or apartment, and if the oppor-

tunity does arise in an emergency to


turn the lights on, thats just ne. Todays modern lasers are bright enough
to contend with lamps and ceiling
lights, and theres always the brass
bead.
The heat shield could be considered
a bit unnecessary on any modern shotgun, as it was designed to allow soldiers to grab a hot barrel and use the
weapon with a bayonet afxednot a
typical tactical or defensive situation
Continued on page 75

The BOOMDOCK is a simple idea


that, like BoomStixs other products,
aims to ll a hole in the market.
Its a quick-access, wall-or-doormounted gunlock for a home defense
long gun.
Theres little boxes out there for
pistols, and theyre great products, but
theres just not a lot out there for long
guns [short of a safe], said Dunn. The
cool thing about the BoomDock is you
can mount it just about anywhere, on
any at surface. It will take a shotgun, an
SKS, an AR, an AK, and then you have
your home defense long gun at hand in
about three seconds.
What sets the BoomDock apart from
similar products, Dunn said, is how
congurable it is.
There are products like the ShotLock. It will t any Remington 870 or
Mossberg 500 or 590, but if you want to
put a side saddle or a red dot on it, too
bad, so sad, he said. The BoomDock
recongures in seconds. You just crack a
few nuts loose and move your supports
around, and you can go from a Mossberg 500 with a side-saddle and a red
dot to an A3 style AR with a 20-round
magazine in the same box.
Ive even had my AR-10 at top in
there with 20 rounds of .308, Dunn
added.
The whole thing is constructed of steel
and locks up securely, including a device
that prevents the trigger from being activated while secured in the BoomDock.
It unlocks quickly with an included RFID
card or a four-digit PIN code.
BoomStix Home Defense is taking orders now for delivery in November 2015.

CUSTOM HANDGUNS FOR SALE

GARY REEDER CUSTOM GUNS is proud to


THE HELLCAT
announce our newest custom revolver, our new
$1795
HELLCAT. It is built on
on your Ruger Bearcat
the new adjustable
4 month delivery in most cases
sighted 22 caliber
Bearcat. We convert
the gun from rimfire
to centerfire and build a new
5 shot cylinder in 32 H&R. We
also install a new barrel in the length the
customer wants and add the new interchangeable blade
front sight. The gun gets the Gunfighter Grip conversion
with new grips and complete deluxe refinish with the normal
package engraving. It has all the normal features like a full
action job, Deep Dish Crown and Maxi Throat. The gun is super
slick and comes sighted in and ready to go. We also build the
HELLCAT on the standard fixed sight Bearcat as long as it is the
steel framed Bearcat. For a trail gun it would be hard to beat our
new HELLCAT. As usual one third down and we get started on your new
HELLCAT.

in place. Theres also a special Law Enforcement Modication (LEM) model that comes with a bobbed hammer and
a double-action-only (DAO) trigger with a crisp 5.4-pound
pull.
If you havent shot the HK P30 line of pistols, you will
have to familiarize yourself with the location of some of the
controls. The extended ambidextrous slide release is mounted along the top of the frame just below the chamber. Notably absent is the standard magazine release button that is
traditionally situated just behind the trigger guard. Like other German guns, including the rst-generation Walther PPQ,
the HK P30 line has a paddle-style magazine release lever located on either side of the trigger guard. Its not a traditional
American styling, but it serves a very important function
when the gun is holstered, its impossible for an assailant to
drop the magazine from your rearm. And once you become
familiar and comfortable with the system, youre probably
going to like it. When the mag runs dry, simply press down
on the paddle with your trigger nger, drop the magazine
and reload. The system is fast and intuitive.

The P30SK measures just 6.42 inches long, making it an ideal concealed carry or backup weapon. With no sharp corners to snag or hangup, its an easy gun to draw and shoot quickly. The P30SK boasts a 10-round magazine capacity, which is a lot of ammunition for a compact
9mm. Still, the P30SK remains comfortable to shoot, with a width of just 1.37 inches. The P30SK has paddle-style magazine release bars
on either side of the trigger guard. This system prevents assailants from dropping your magazine while the gun is holstered.

lease, it isnt in the traditional position.


Instead, it is located just to the left of
the hammer. This too serves a very important functionwhen you are clearing the gun in the middle of a gunght,
you wont accidentally hit the decocker
since its tucked out of the way. Simply
press the button and the hammer drops,
and, as with the magazine release lever,
it becomes second nature once you do it
a few times.
Some pistols look and feel cheap.
Others feel like they are well-built and
robust, and there are a handful of pistols that feel like they are so solidly
constructed you could wither away on
the range trying to get them to fail.
The P30SK is that third kind of pistol.
It is made of quality parts that are well
machined and so tightly tted that it
feels like a custom gun. The interior

parts are polished free from machine


marks. The slide is tight and smooth,
and the slide/frame t is precise.
On the range, the P30SK performed
very well. This is likely due in part to
the barrels polygonal riing, which
substitutes the standard lands and
grooves for a bore that has been octagonally reamed for a better gas seal. The
P30SK comes with front and rear adjustable three-dot luminescent sights
that are dovetailed into the slide, ideal
for close-range work.
For the 15-yard accuracy test, I
mounted a Crimson Trace Rail Master
green laser on the P30SK accessory rail.
The green laser offers a more precise
aiming point, giving a clear picture of
a handguns overall accuracy potential
without variations due to sight design.
With the laser in place, the P30SK

was extremely accurate. At 15 yards,


groups hovered just above an inch.
Normally, during these range tests you
have one brand of ammo that is a clear
favorite, but after testing three different loadsHornadys 100-grain Critical Defense Lite, SIG Sauers 124-grain
Performance Elite and Noslers new
124-grain DefenseI realized I would
have to measure the groups to have an
idea which ammo was the most accurate in the P30SK. As it turned out, the
SIG won the day, but both the Nosler
and Hornady ammunition were nipping right at its heels.
The oversized extractor worked perfectly, and the only ammunition with
which the P30SK took issue was the
light Hornady load, which resulted in
a couple stovepipe jams. This is likely
due to the fact that the Hornady ammo
gundigest.com

WHY ADD A LASER?


After unpacking the P30SK from its box, my next step was to mount a Crimson
Trace Rail Master green laser on the short picatinny rail. Lasers have grown in
popularity with law enforcement and competitive shooters as well as CCW permit
holders and backyard shooters, and for good reason. Lasers provide an excellent
sighting system, especially in low-light conditions (and most violent attacks dont
happen at midday in a well-lit area). I didnt realize how effective lasers were in
dark conditions until I shot targets in near total darkness at the Crimson Trace facility in Wilsonville, Oregon, and one such display of just how hard it can be to hit
targets in low light with traditional sights is sufcient to help understand why more
and more law enforcement and military units are outtting their side arms with
lasers. In addition, lasers help diagnose mistakes with your shooting form. If youre
choking the trigger and pulling down and left, youll be able to visualize this with
the laser on the target. Likewise, lasers help identify your most stable shooting position and remind shooters to concentrate on their target. Over the years laser sighting systems have gained a loyal following, and I count myself among those ranks.

is loaded to produce less recoil, and


the P30SK hadnt been properly broken in. I set the Hornady ammo aside,
test-red the heavier stuff, and then
went back to the Hornady ammo. After that, there was only one stovepipe,
which seems to be a sign that once the
HK is broken in it will work with lighter loads. The accuracy results from the
test are below, showing the outcomes
of the test with all three ammo types.
As you can see, the accuracy was very
good, especially for a gun with a 3.27inch barrel. Chances are youll never
need to shoot a 1-inch group at 15
yards with your P30SK, but if the need
arises, this gun will do it.
The P30SK performs as well on the
line as it does on the bench. It is balanced well and comfortable to shoot,
and with an overall length of just 6.42
inches and a height of 4.57 inches, it
is indeed compact. Its a bit wider than

LOAD

many competing carry 9mms at 1.37


inches, but that third of an inch of
width helps keep this gun planted during shooting, and its still an easy gun
to conceal. The abbreviated grip leaves
the average shooters last nger without
a home, but the P30SK is still manageable.
Semi-autos have gotten easier to
disassemble for routine maintenance
and cleaning, and HK is not the type
of company to allow itself to be outengineered. As a result, takedown of
the P30SK is extremely simple. You
drop the magazine and clear the gun,
pull the slide back far enough that the
rectangular cutout in the metal slide
is aligned with a matching piece on
the slide stop, press a pin from the opposite side until the rectangular metal
piece slips through the gap in the slide
and then turn the gun upside down
and pull the slide forward. With the

slide removed, the guide spring and


barrel simply fall into your hand. Its
about as simple a takedown regiment
as youll nd on a compact semi-auto, and once youve practiced, it will
take you far less time to actually break
down your gun than it has taken me
to explain the process. There goes your
last excuse for having a dirty pistol.
HK resisted the urge to cut down
their P30 pistol to grab a share of the
compact pistol market because that
meant cutting corners. Instead, the
company has taken the time to produce
a well-engineered, well-designed carry
gun that is built to last. Will the newer
VP9 and VP40 spawn similar compact
carry variations? Id venture to say its
likely, but its not absolutely necessary,
because the P30SK is a ne carry gun
that lives up to the HK name and commitment: never compromise. GDTM

Build The Ultimate Home Defense Plan continued from page 35

While a lot of folks think a home defense plan is all about gun selection, the starting point should be establishing a secure home that
isnt an easy target for criminals. Once youve secured your place
of residence, selecting the right rearm is a much less complicated
decision. Photos by Alex Landeen

read it. Discuss your legal rights and


obligations with an attorney versed in
self defense law and build your plan
from there. Get to know your house
inside and out, in the day and night.
Establish hard points and know
where strong points are located.
Hard points are pre-established locations capable of being defended for
an extended time. Strong points are
eld-expedient locations you can defend for short periods. Know the circumstances under which youll hold
fast in your hard point/safe room and
when youll have to push out to a second hard point or strong point. For example, my bedroom is my hard point,
but if the grandkids are staying with
us, well have to push out to a strong
point to secure the guest bedroom.

Make sure you have a plan and the


capability to deal with injuries. When
bullets y around, meat gets cut. That
meat might belong to you or someone
you care about. You have to keep blood

the situation. Whew, not too much to
consider, eh?
Guns and gear are next on the list.
Most people start here, which is exactly jack backwards. You should arm
yourself with the weapon system with

my pistol, extra magazine, handheld
light, medical supplies and cell phone.
Thats everything I need to manage
the scene for the time it takes to either
disable the attackers or for police to arrive.
Last comes the T word. That
would be training. You dont know
what you dont know. The latest YouTube sensei generally sucks, but classes
such as those offered at Gunsite Academy (Gunsite.com), Combat Shooting
and Tactics (CombatShootingAndTactics.com) and Academi (Academi.com)
are excellent. I have personal experience with their training and feel condent endorsing them. So, thats the big
picture of home invasion. Start slow,
build up and be ready. GDTM

Da Boom continued from page 38

Da Boom is built on a Mossberg 500


platform, but it also comes with the option
to utilize the Remington 870. Either way,
reliability and versatility are key.

one encounters. But in this case it does help with gripping


the short gun and maneuvering it without grabbing the
slide. The shell carrier from TK carries six 12-gauge rounds
securely and in optimum position for loading on the left
side of the receiver.
The weight of the barrel and mag tube do quite a bit to
offset the felt recoil of even 12-gauge 00 buckshot shells,
which patterned as expected with an open choke at 10
yards and closer. Winchester 12-gauge PDX Defender ammo
also performed well, with the slug and pellets going exactly
where they were supposed to go. The vertical foregrip and
Scorpion Recoil Pad on the pistol grip help manage the kick
that the weight of the shotgun doesnt absorb, which is certainly manageable.
This was kind of our original shotgun, Dunn said. He
also added that maneuverability was a big consideration in
designing Da Boom.
If you have a shotgun with a stock, I understand theres
more stability when you shoulder a gun, but its harder to
maneuver. With Da Boom you can get around tight corners,
pile into rooms and its a lot easier with that conguration.
To help offset the lack of a stock we put a nice, chunky
vertical foregrip on there. That FAB Defense grip adds a lot
of stability, and youre sharing the recoil with two arms instead of one, he said.
Da Boom certainly isnt locked into its conguration. The
receiver is tapped for a top rail if you prefer a red dot of
some kind. The light and laser can be easily removed or
moved, and the same is true of the vertical foregrip. The
gundigest.com

mount for the ATI pistol grip includes an attachment point


for a single-point sling that can also be used in conjunction
with the sling swivel mount on the magazine tube cap for a
two- or three-point sling, if one so chooses.
Da Boom is a solid home defense shotgun for those who
can manage a stockless 12-gauge with quality components,
no unnecessary accessories and denitely a mean look. GDTM

Glock 43 and M&P-9 Carbon Handguns


Setting the Pace
Don HannaPortland Gun Store, Clackamas, Oreg., PortlandGunStore.com
Concealed carry handguns are big sellers
right now at the Portland Gun Store, according to owner Don Hanna, including
the new 9mm Glock 43. Priced at $475,
Hanna said he cant keep the nifty little
Glocks on the gun counter because they
sell so fast.
The carbon ber, striker-red handguns are picking up speed, too, he
added. The Smith & Wesson M&P-9
Carbon Fiber is one that is moving very
well for us, at $579.
Theres a good local market for
1911-style semi-automatic pistols, too.
We sell about an equal number of
Colts, Remingtons and Ruger 1911s.
Name recognition and price point are
still number one factor, especially with
our rst-time buyers. That price point?
Denitely needs to be under $800.
While some stores are still having

problems getting ammunition, Portland Gun Store is fully stocked. In fact,


we include a free box with every new
handgun we sell. The customers need to
get out there and do some shooting. Its
essential for the survival of our industry.
Hannas seeing some renewed interest
in AR-platform ries, especially from
rst-time buyers. With a recommendation from a friend or fellow shooter,
these rst-timers are often very willing to
spend well above the $700 for an entrylevel AR.
Theres also a noticeable uptick in
people who are building their own ARs.
A lot of these customers tell me they
want to build a custom rie with all the
good parts. Replacement triggers and
quality pistol grips are the best sellers
right now.

At its May 28 auction, Cordier Auctions


saw spirited bidding from both persons
in actual attendance and a large number
of collectors bidding via the Internet on
over 250 lots of antique, collectible and
modern rearms.
Early lots of antique handguns
included a rare James Reid Pocket
Model 2 Revolver in excellent condition,
which sold for $1,000 on a pre-auction
estimate of $600 to $800, according to
Scott Lutz, Cordiers Director of Firearms
and Militaria Auctions. A Savage Revolving Arms Co. Navy Model revolver went
to an Internet customer for $900 after
spirited bidding
Collectible handguns featured a Standard Conehammer Broomhandle Mauser
in 7.63mm, which sold for $1,400. Colts
remained strong, with a 1911 Pistol in
.45 ACP selling for $1,500 to an Internet
bidder after heavy competition. Among
the modern handguns, a Smith &
Wesson Model 63-4 Revolver with an unusual 5-inch barrel brought $600, while
a FN Herstal Model Five-Seven-IOM
pistol in 5.7x28mm caliber hammered
down at $900, nearly twice the amount
of Cordiers pre-auction estimate.
In antique long guns, an early 19th
century Hese-Hanau Fry-Core-type rie
sold for $1,200. This rare Europeanmade, single-shot muzzle-loading
percussion rie sold to an online buyer in
Europe after heavy bidding both online
and in the room. A U.S. Springeld
Model 1861 musket with G. AICHELE/
CO. B 214 REG carved in the stock sold
to a bidder in the room for $1,900.
Among the collectible long guns were
two Springeld Armory M-1 Garands.
The rst was a .30-06 in excellent
condition, which sold for $1,700, on an
estimate of $800-$1,000. The second, a
Tanker in .30-06, went at $1,400. Meanwhile, a Winchester Model 42 shotgun in
.410 sold for $900.

Gun Writer Elmer Keith Still Calling the Shots


At Auction!
Francis LombardiJames D. Julia, Inc. Faireld, Maine, JamesDJulia.com
Arguably the most important gun writer
of the last century, Elmer Keith, sometimes referred to as the Father of the
Magnum, is still inuencing the gun
world. This time, the occasion was a
rearms auction held by James D. Julia,
Inc., where Keiths collection of rearms
recently went up for auction. And the
prices paid bear strong testament to
Keiths continued importance.
According to Francis Lombardi,
Department Head of Julias Firearms
Division, one of the rst guns up was
the most famous of all of Elmer Keiths
handguns, a customized Colt SA Army
revolver referred to as The Last Word in
handguns. Bearing Serial No. 5, beautifully engraved and custom designed by
Keith and Harold Croft, the Colt came to
the auction block with a presale estimate
of $30,000 to $50,000. Yet, after a
furious bidding battle, it went out at
$80,500!
A pair of Smith & Wesson hand ejector
First Model (triple-lock target revolvers
with holster rig) owned by Keith was
conservatively estimated at $6,000 to

$10,000, but they blew through the high


estimate to bring nearly $40,000.
Keith was a renowned big-game hunter, and his collection included many double ries that accompanied him on various hunting safaris. The most signicant
or historic gun was unquestionably the
W.J. Jeffrey Grade 2 best box lock double
rie that at one time had been owned
and used by hunting legend Jim Corbett.
During his lifetime, Corbett killed 44
man-eaters, two of which accounted for
killing and devouring over 800 people.
His trusty double rie was estimated at
this sale at $75,000 to $150,000. But the
rie ew well beyond the high mark to
approximately $265,000.
Firearms owned by the late Norm
Flayderman, an expert in antique and
collectible rearms and their values, were
also offered. Items included a scarce Civil
War brass frame revolver with holster
presented to 1st Sgt. Wm. Ahrberg/Co. E
16th K.V.C. The gun carried a modest estimate of $2,000 to $4,000, but it went
out at over four times the high estimate
for $17,825.

High School Shooting


Programs Generating
Strong Market for Youth
Shotguns
Matt MullnerJoes Sporting Goods, St.
Paul, Minn., JoesSportingGoods.com
In Minnesota, surging interest in high
school shooting sports has led to a surprising number of youth shotguns being
sold at Joes Sporting Goods. Most in
demand: shotguns for competitive trap
shooting.
What surprises me the most is the
amount parents are willing to spend for
their childs rearm, said Matt Mullner,
gun shop manager. I guess like any
other high school sport, like football or
hockey, equipment is expensive. But Ive
seen parents spend up to $2,000 for
their son or daughters trap gun. Thats
not the norm, but the average is still
right around $1,200!
For handguns, the top seller here
has been the Smith & Wesson Shield
at $449.99. Sales of that pistol easily triple any other rearms we carry,
Mullner noted.
The store has also seen many sales of
rimre ries. Ruger 10/22s are among
the most popular rimres here, at $250.
CZ has become a very hot line for us
the past few years, too, Mullner added.
No specic model sticks out, but the CZ
rimre ries range from $399 to $569.
Unlike a lot of establishments, Joes has
been able to get pretty good supplies of
.22 LR ammunition. What it cant get?
.22 WMR ammo. Its also having trouble
stocking Benellis new 828 O/U, the Italian gun makers rst-ever over-and-under
shotgun. Distributors tell Mullner that
high demand for the shotgun has created
a shipping bottleneck. GDTM
