If you are thinking about getting a gun, it’s important to choose a firearm that best suits your needs. For example, are you in the market for a gun for self- or home defense? Different situations often call for different gun solutions, so let’s discuss home protection guns.

We are the only Federal Firearms Licensed (FFL) pawn shop in Barberton, OH, which means we can offer quality firearms at prices that are much lower in comparison to brand new ones.

Here are three types of guns in Barberton, OH that are recommended for home protection.
The most common pistol round on the current market is the 9mm cartridge, so it’s not surprising that it’s a popular choice for most United States law enforcement agencies, military personnel, private security companies, target shooters and homeowners. And although this type of gun may seem intimidating to novice shooters, it’s a great option to turn to when learning to shoot.
9mm ammunition is readily available and is considered relatively inexpensive—especially for people who want to go practice shooting—and gun manufacturers produce a variety of guns that take this ammo. Furthermore, 9mm rounds are proven to be very effective at stopping perpetrators.
.357 Magnum: Ruger LCR, Smith and Wesson Bodyguard
As if the word “magnum” doesn’t give away the fact that this is a very powerful round, a .357 Magnum is typically for people who already know how to shoot and handle all sorts of handguns. And the smaller the pistol frame, the greater the kick upon firing. That is why it’s a good idea to not only learn to shoot a .357 Magnum properly, but also how to hold it and use a proper stance.
Both experienced and inexperienced shooters speak highly of home protection guns like the Smith and Wesson Bodyguard or the Ruger LCR for their accuracy and easy operation. All in all, this round is excellent for home defense.
.45 caliber handgun
The .45 caliber handgun was a popular sidearm used in World War II. Though it’s still popular today, this caliber can be intimidating to new shooters looking for a gun for home protection—but it shouldn’t be. There’s a range of pistol chambers that can take the .45 caliber, which is a large round that’s powerful and effective at stopping intruders or attackers, without a hard recoil like that of some other handguns. This caliber handgun is a great choice, although compared to other popular ammo rounds, .45 caliber ammunition can be more expensive.
