Best Weapons for Self Defense Non-Lethal and Legal. While we believe a firearm, in well trained hands to be the best option. In untrained hands waving around any item that even looks like a firearm could provide motive for the attackers, could end up being used against the opener, not to mention the legality as its has been said if you pull a firearm you and I must be prepared to use it. Remember using a firearm or any deadly weapon even if its legally obtained and even if you wake up to find an intruder in your home running out your house with your TV or other valuables you and I could end up spending years in prison for using lethal force when no ones life was in direct danger. On the other hand if you have a firearm pointed to your face the intruder more often than not has consumed some for of stimulant maybe a little or even a lot their adrenaline pumping it is in our opinion and from personal experience, having just woken up any action taken may be much slower than when one is wide awake and practicing. Most of us would end up being killed before we loaded our own weapon. Give the attacker whatever they want while keeping as calm as possible. In this situation any sudden movement could get you killed. Once again I will stress that saving your TV is not worth the risk of having your loved ones or yourself killed. Our ego may want to be the Hero but at what cost? Only those with special training, not training gotten 20 years ago in your 2 year military training. Your reflexes may be slower than you remember plus if you have just woken up it takes a few minutes for your body to catch up. Even if your firearm is loaded and in reach depending on the legal system in your country even if you overpower your assailant or say you managed to disarm the assailant or you got hold of your own weapon. The question could be asked if you so resourceful was it necessary to kill the robber. We have been told in most instances a deadly weapon can only be used for self defense is if life is in direct danger. If your attacker even drops his or her weapon or is not threatening life directly the result could be manslaughter even if on private property.
