Shotguns are a popular firearm for home defense, and for good reason. Here’s the thing about defending your home: it’s scary. It looks like being woken up in the middle of the night, foggy headed, and adrenaline pounding. There are too many unknown factors. You don’t know how many people are in your house. You don’t know how big they are, or how they are armed. Here’s a secret about home defense: you don’t want to have to aim. The easier your job, the safer you and your family are. That’s why shotgun operation is such an appealing choice. All you have to do is point.
When buying shotgun accessories, plan to:
- Protect your ears and eyes
- Minimize uncertainty on your part (AKA great optics)
- Gain better control of your situation (comfortable stock, easy operation)
However, certain aspects of home defense can become easier if you have the right accessories. As the leading dealer of all things related to firearms, DEGuns is prepared to help you find the best shotguns and accessories to keep your home safe. Here are a few examples of what we offer.
