(See in situ)

First off,

go to your local gun store and ask to see and hold some, whether it be pistol, shotgun or rifle.Get a feel which one feels good in your hand and do research on the gun you choose before buying it.Depending on your budget look to spend between 350 to 1000 for any of the three.For home defense every firearm should have a flashlight mounted to it so keep that in mind.Get some training with the firearm from a certified instructor so they can show you how to manipulate the gun properly, and always practice safety.
