Ladies, when your husband tries to strangle you, a handgun can save your life.
That’s the lesson learned in Colorado Springs recently after a man attempted to strangle his wife to death.
Instead of her lifeless body lying on the ground as he intended, the husband dialed 911 and begged for medical assistance after his would-be victim shot him in the head.
About 2am on April 29, 2021, Morgan Chess made his desperate 911 call, only to find himself arrested and charged with assault.
According to the Colorado Springs Police Department, Morgan Chess “strangulated his wife” but she was able to get a pistol and fired it once “while fearing for her life.”

Do you have the correct defensive mindset?
Owning a firearm without proper training in the safe handling and use of that firearm is all but useless. Study after study shows, when the SHTF you will – at best – perform at 50% of your best training day.
Diligent and consistent practice in a variety of training scenarios is essential if your desire to own a firearm is primarily self-defence.
