Rob Pincus, owner of I.C.E. Training Company and the developer of the Combat Focus Shooting Program has released his sixth book, “Defend Yourself: A Comprehensive Plan for the Armed Homeowner” published by Gun Digest Books.
Written for the millions of gun owners who have purchased firearms for home defense and protection, “Defend Yourself” guides readers through planning for, training for and, ultimately, defending themselves and their families from a violent threat inside the home. Pincus gives readers they tools they need to assess and respond to sudden home emergencies with confidence. After explaining the importance of evaluating the advantages and disadvantages of an individual’s home, Pincus dives into practical, reality-based tactics to help homeowners or renters begin thinking defensively.
Individuals looking to up their home defense efforts will find a variety of scenarios and accompanying strategies outlined in the book that can be customized based on the layout of the home or apartment and family budget. Readers will also learn about defensive equipment that they should consider having in the home, including information about why certain firearms are better for specific survival situations.
While armed defense is at the core of the book, Pincus also covers the fundamentals of security, evasion, barricading and non-lethal defensive actions, including alarm systems and dogs, which can also be effective. The book also emphasizes the importance of practicing home invasion response drills and encourages open family discussions about having a plan in case of a crisis. “Defend Yourself” rethinks home defense, focusing on making defense a part of the home, rather than building a fortress.
“Defend Yourself: A Comprehensive Security Plan for the Armed Homeowner” is available online at www.icetraining.us and at other major booksellers.
