This one-hour module explores the different strengths and weaknesses of three very different weapons systems: the shotgun, the handgun, and the AR-15/M4 carbine. Aside from the strengths inherent to a particular weapon system, many other factors must be considered, such as training levels, low-light variables, the overall home defense plan, the composition of walls, proximity of family members, etc. This module is meant to help individuals sort through both objective and subjective variables to arrive at the right choice for their particular household.
