Home Defense Ammunition

Houston Gun Dealer, Jim Pruett’s Guns and Ammo, can explain to you the different types of guns and ammo that are good for home defense situations. The type of gun used will naturally dictate the type of ammo to buy.

Rifles can be used in a home defense situation as can shotguns. Both offer power, but can be used against you in a struggle due to their long barrel. Rifles use .22 caliber ammo. Shotguns, depending on the type chosen, use cartridges filled with multiple pellets or shot.

Handguns are extremely popular home defense weapons and take all kinds of different munitions, from the ever popular 9mm handgun requiring 9x19mm ammo to the .357 Magnum. These guns are great for home defense because there isn’t an extreme risk of over penetration as there is with a deer rifle or shotgun using slugs.

The best way to purchase a gun and ammo is from a reputable gun dealer such as Jim Pruett's Guns and Ammo store – Houston's most knowledgeable store on home defense guns and ammo.
