Every citizen in Alaska one must be prepared for all possible contingencies, and we at US Precision Defense firmly believe that a responsibly and legally armed citizen is a safe citizen. One of the single best forms of self-defense protection that can be carried concealed on one’s person is in fact a Handgun; it can stop a violent attack like no other weapon.
Whether in Alaska, or really anywhere in the country and if confronted by a violent criminal or some mentally deranged evil person a Handgun in the hands of someone that is trained and prepared for an armed encounter has the ability to stop that evil, quickly and decisively.
