    A couple things... The overall underrated "ehh" attitude of 9mm is really way off. 9mm comes in huge variety with varying levels of lethality. You're standard ball 9mm isn't that bad, but try taking HydroShock 9mm. Then there's civil defense AP 9mm rated at 2,000 f.p.s
    Also who the hell are these people that are making the AR15 into some sorta elephant gun ? The AR-15 really lacks recoil for it's classification & while ammo can penetrate say an engine block, it's not gonna keep going beyond that.
    R.Lee Ermy did a live fire comparison of 5.56 vs. 762x39; AR only pened 3 cinder blocks compared to the AK.

    A lever action rifle that shoots a magnum handgun cartridge such as a .357 or .44 magnum is a handy rifle that can quickly put up to a dozen rounds on target. Unlike the 9mm which might gain 50-100 feet per second, the .357 will gain 500-800 feet per second out of the carbine barrel. The .44 will have similar gains in velocity. Reloading them will take longer than a magazine fed rifle, but if you do your job the need for a fast reload isn’t a huge issue. I would place the lever action well above the PCC in any auto pistol cartridge.

    I think shotguns get way too bad a rep for personal defense. For someone who doesn’t have any training their best course of action isn’t to seek out an intruder, it would be to stay put and point at the door. A shotgun is literally the best option for that. Is there recoil, limited capacity, and is it long? Yes. But would an inexperienced person be able to, with ease, use a single buckshot round to take down an intruder coming through a doorway? Absolutely. That on top of the fact that it’s legal everywhere, and with a good autoloader that already eliminates a large part of the manual of arms.

      yea but for inside the home defense for a first time shooter they have their benefits. not only because theyre smaller and lighter, but you can buy a good one and accessorize the crap out of it. extended mags, custom grips, sights, flashlight, lasers, one of those quick rack thingys. Dump a ton of money into cause they're never going to shoot it and will never get the practice they need anyhow. so instead of pray and spray, just tech up with a laser and a flashlight, jump behind a couch, and when theyre within range just flash and shoot. thats as about as good a scenario as you could hope for

    Nope. Had to stop at 6:42 the moment this dude claimed that bird shot was not lethal. Even at point blank range. This guys obviously has ZERO idea what he's talking about. Even the softest shooting 7 1/2 birdshot will go through 3/4" - 1" wood and beyond at 15 feet while leaving a silver dollar sized hole in its wake and spreading while travelling. Given the fact that an average human skull is about 1/4" thick, a well placed shot to the head is instant death from 15' away using birdshot. The average human heart is only 2 1/4 to 2 1/12 inches inside the chest. A blast from a 12 gauge inside of 15' feet can and will be lethal if shot in the chest. Period. For home defense, I HIGHLY recommend a 12 gauge shotgun with birdshot. You won't over penetrate your walls and your loved ones will most likely be safe. Use a slug or even 00buck in your house and I promise you that it will easily travel floor to ceiling through at least 2 floors of a house and that is even after hitting your intended target. ~smdh~ 12g birdshot isn't lethal.....THIS dude. Just....wow. Intense dislike.

    Got my ex a Remington nilon 66 after her neighbor was strangled. It is short tube feed simi auto 22, that can be dropped into a mud puddle than ran over with a truck. Wash it off in a creak and it will work. One guy hit over 1000 two inch block in the air with several of them. In about a half-hour she could pick it up, put the front sight on what she wanted to shoot and pull the trigger three times. In 2.5 seconds. The target was a 6 inch circle at 7 yards, that is as far as anything in her house or to the road. 6 inch is about the size of a head. Three 22 in someone's face will stop the fíght. The guy next to us had a Glock, he was shooting it gangster style sideways and missing the target which was about the size of sheet of newspaper. When unloading it, empty the tube, then work the bolt TWO times. There is a catch that holds a round to be chambered next time. Shot a hole in the roof learning that.

      I went searching for answers. I got answers so the gun featured in the video which we all needed it clearly defined especially for us newbies. You want us to go out and get an AR-15 but what do we say? Gun shop man AR-15 like I saw on AMtost? The answer is it’s an “Aero Precision” urban rifle....that’s what I needed.....I called places and they directed me to Aero Precision......and they said it’s about $800 or $900. I then called a gun shop...Yo Homie! Hook it up with an Aero Precision! He said....why don’t you look at Black Rain? I said what are you talking about? What’s Black Rain? Oh my god.....Black Rain! They look so cool! Moving on....if you go to the Aero Precision page you can win an AR-15 for Free! That’s right for free! They give one away every month for Free...so there you go everyone has answers. I really did appreciate the video though because I was one of those guys....At-15! Are you insane! That’s crazy talk! At-15....now I am like heck yeah! AR-15! So thank you for that

    I tend to recommend a 4” K Frame .38/.357 revolver to newbies who are going to shoot the gun once, then put it in a sock drawer forever. Nine MM pistols are cheaper & easier to shoot but are more prone to ND unless the gun owner is handling/shooting it regularly.

    Sorry bro but this is not going to blow over, the left wins, cancel your channel, cancel all freedom's, its over, At least with President Trump, we get 4 more years of freedom until the left comes for us. You would not be going to thunder ranch for fun
