Our Home Defense Gun

CMMG Mk4 AR-15 Pistol in 5.56mm

This CMMG Mk4 AR-15 pistol has been our home defense gun for about the past year, and the rationale that drove us to this gun might surprise you. Check out below for the 3 big reasons why this, of all my AR-15s, has become our home defense gun.

  1. Short and Light. The Mrs. Loves it. Don’t you know you should fit your home defense gun to the weakest shooter in the house?! The shorter 12″ barrel and light keymod handrail on the CMMG means this gun is easier to drive around doorways and hallways.
  2. Theft. I’m a fan of locking up my guns, ESPECIALLY my really high end stuff with IR lasers, silencers, and expensive optics. But, with a home defense gun, I want extremely quick accessibility. That means this CMMG, though hidden, is not locked up like the rest of my babies. This CMMG is a good mid-range in terms of cost (around $1k), so if it was stolen somehow, I would not have to sell my children to science in order to replace it. Yes, that last comment was a joke. Relax people!
  3. Solid construction. CMMG sources good parts to get me something I can count on, but without breaking the bank. They back this up with a full warranty against any defects (so if something dorks up, it is THEIR problem to fix and not mine).
