It is the duty of every able-bodied American to own a gun and know how to use it.
- The rifle for hunting
- The handgun to protect against crime
- The shotgun to protect your home and family
The rifle should be at least .223 caliber, and preferably an autoloader.
The handgun should be at least 9mm (or .38 caliber, if a revolver). It should be small enough for comfortable concealed carry.
The shotgun should be 12ga, and should have a capacity of at least 6 shells.
You should practice with your guns to ensure that you can use them competently. You should have a sufficient quantity of ammunition on hand to be able to use these guns effectively in a conflict.

Specializing in the tactical employment of guns against deadly criminal threats
Defensive pistol shooting as a sport is quite simply the use of practical equipment including full charge service ammunition to solve simulated "real world" self-defense scenarios. Shooters competing in Defensive Pistol events are required to use practical handguns and holsters that are truly suitable for self-defense use. No "competition only" equipment is permitted in Defensive Pistol matches since the main goal is to test the skill and ability of an individual, not his or her equipment or gamesmanship.
