One of today’s preeminent firearms and tactical trainers Rob Pincus is at the helm of Defend Yourself: A Comprehensive Security Plan for the Armed Homeowner, a new book from Gun Digest Books that delivers home defense tactics and plans designed to accommodate any space, family size and budget. The book will be made available in May 2014 at gundigeststore.com, Amazon, Barnes & Noble and other major booksellers.

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 Defend Yourself 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 takes care to cover 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.
