Why You Should Choose an AR-15 Pistol for a Home Defense Firearm

Let’s cut to the chase: The AR-15 pistol is one of the best firearms for home defense. 

 

Why? They’re affordable, reliable, accurate, and found everywhere. It’s no wonder the AR-15 is informally known as America’s 21st Century musket. And for good reason. 

 

When an intruder sees the easily recognized AR in your hands, they know you mean business. 

 

Learn about the evolution of the AR and AR pistol

 

But first, let’s dive into the benefits of using an AR-15 pistol for home defense. Each benefit is like a ripple effect — they all go hand in hand to make this firearm perfect for defense purposes. 



Benefits of an AR-15 Pistol for Home Defense

 

shockwave blade stealth ar-15 pistol

Affordable

 

You can find an AR-15 pistol to fit every budget: from just a few hundred dollars to the “sky is the limit.” The typical .223 ammunition is easily found in stores (when there’s not a global pandemic unfolding daily or nightly riots) and one of the least expensive ammos, with prices averaging about 32 cents per round. 

 

 

Low Recoiling

 

A low recoil makes the AR-15 pistol easy to shoot and a good option for beginners — even younger members of the family.

 

 

Accuracy

 

Because of such low recoil, accuracy is improved for most shooters.

 

 

Lightweight

 

At a mere 6 pounds — with ammo! — the AR-15 pistol is light enough for shooters of all ages and experiences. Because it has such a lightweight body, you can easily customize and add accessories to your firearm without making it too heavy to handle safely and accurately — especially in a home defense scenario. 

 

 

Ergonomically Designed

 

Many features of the AR-15 pistol are designed with ergonomics in mind, making this firearm comfortable and safe to shoot: pistol grip, trigger reach, safety location, forward handguard, sights, etc.

 

 

Ammo Capacity

 

A typical AR-15 pistol magazine holds 30 rounds of ammo. 

 

Many experts recommend using the .223 cartridge because it’s typically easy to find in stores,  inexpensive, and provides lower recoil. Some recommend using a 55-grain soft-point load that minimizes bullet penetration, which can be beneficial to protect your family in other parts of the home (or surrounding neighbors) in case the bullet misses the intended target. However, as you may know, the AR-15 is available in a multitude of calibers.

 

 

Size

 

During a home invasion, you don’t want to be turning corners and allow the intruder to discover your location before you know theirs. The AR-15 pistol is a great option for home defense due to its relatively short length, allowing you to turn corners discreetly and avoid disclosing your location that can put your defense game at risk. 

 

 

Customizable

 

From function to ergonomics to aesthetics, there are simply too many types of firearm accessories for customizing your AR-15 pistol than we can possibly cover here: grips, forearms, slings, sights, lights, lasers, scopes, red dot sights, triggers, muzzle devices, and so on. 

 

For home defense purposes, however, we recommend keeping it simple. Focus on the following accessories:

  • Brace, grip and/or sling: for better and safer control of your firearm
  • Flashlight: for better visibility in low-light conditions and stunning any intruders with the bright illumination
  • Red dot sight: for accuracy



A note about pistol braces:

 

Whether you’re building a custom AR-15 pistol or bought an AR-15 pistol without a brace, adding a brace can improve control and accuracy.

 

An AR-15 pistol cannot have a stock but it can have a brace, such as the Shockwave Blade and Shockwave Blade 2M.

Why are ergonomics important in firearm design?

 

If you’ve never thought about what ergonomics are or why they’re important, I’m about to change your perspective on gun purchasing forever.

 

While most people think of ergonomics in the workplace, they also matter to products we love to use — like firearms. In the firearms world, a product that’s ergonomic means it’s been designed to fit the user in a safer, more comfortable, and more practical way. 

 

Why is that important? Because, believe it or not, ergonomics affect your entire body. When shooting a gun, you hold your body and arms in a specific position to have proper sight/picture alignment, firearm control, and recoil management. However slight, poor ergonomics of a firearm can have a significant impact on your musculoskeletal system, which controls your muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments, and nerves. If you go to the shooting range often or spend a good chunk of time doing target practice, a gun without good ergonomic design can cause muscle stress, fatigue, discomfort, pain, or even injury. 

 

Shockwave’s Raptor™ Grips are specifically designed with ergonomics (and you) in mind. Our grips make it easier for gun owners to use their firearms safely, effectively, and comfortably with decreased risk of musculoskeletal injury. 



Raptor™ Grip vs. pistol grip

 

As you know, the grip is the part of the firearm you grasp with your hand to operate the trigger. Some grips even serve multiple functions, such as stabilizing the gun and providing storage for magazines, bipods, or tools. But some grips are better than others.

 

When it comes to choosing a Raptor™ Grip over a pistol grip, which one do you choose? We may be biased, but we’ll give you the basic breakdown on why the Raptor™ Grip is the best choice.

 

A pistol grip aligns your wrist in a straight up- and down, thumbs-up position, completely perpendicular to the direction of recoil. As a result, the recoil goes straight into your wrist joint—and can hurt like hell when you fire a heavy-recoiling shotgun. 

 

Here’s a video of someone using a pistol grip where you can see how his wrist is perpendicular to the recoil direction. 

 

With the Raptor™ Grip, you hold the grip in a more natural position, with your thumb pointed forward so your wrist is not kinked back into that vertical thumbs-up position. With the Raptor™ Grip, the recoil is transferred along your forearm, through the elbow, into your bicep, and finally into your shoulder and body. You feel much less recoil. And since you just read about the importance of great ergonomic design, this fits the bill perfectly. 

 

Here’s a video of someone using Shockwave’s Raptor™ Grip where you can see how his wrist is forward.

 

When it comes to choosing a grip, this should be your takeaway: due to poor ergonomics,  you are much more likely to do serious damage to your hand and wrist with a pistol-grip shotgun that one outfitted with the Shockwave Raptor™ Grip.

 

Comfort and control are crucial when it comes to handling a firearm to prevent injury. So choose the Raptor™ Grip

 

As seen in..

 

Did you know the Raptor™ Grip has been featured in popular movies?  Because it’s badass.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes Raptor Grip

In early 2013, an armorer for the Hand Prop Room in Los Angeles contacted Shockwave. This armorer mentioned they were building some custom props for a Planet of the Apes sequel and wanted to know if we had a Raptor™ Grip for the Remington 870. At the time, we didn’t have any production units for sale, so we sent him a couple of R&D samples taken off of the RTV mold. We occasionally supply Shockwave items to various movie outfits but don’t always hear back. But the Raptor™ Grip R870 was seen on the big screen as the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes movie was released.

John Shaft II Raptor Grip

The Mossberg 590 Shockwave equipped with our Raptor™ grip was seen in the movie John Shaft II, starring Samuel L. Jackson. And what’s more badass than that? Come on.

Buyer Beware: Are You Buying a Real Shockwave Product or a Fake?

Here’s the unfortunate truth: online scams, counterfeits, and con artists have been on a rising rampage — especially during COVID-19. 

 

And this applies to firearm sales, too. 

 

At Shockwave Technologies, we want to ensure our customers are protected from buying into these scams and frauds. We’re proud to have all Shockwave products (truly) made in America and strive to support local businesses every chance we can. But unauthorized fake products coming in from other countries threaten our economy and swindle gun buyers into purchasing low-quality (or illegally made) products without them realizing it. 

 

Let’s take a look at a few steps gun buyers (like yourself) can take to prevent being swindled and combat this “dark side” of purchasing guns and gun parts, both online and in the store. And specifically, how to ensure you’re getting a genuine Shockwave product.

 

Do your due diligence.

 

If you’re buying a true Shockwave product, you’re paying for a top-quality product that is built on ethical standards. Don’t let scammers take advantage of you by taking your hard-earned money and giving you a fake item. And not just fake — a poorly built or illegally-made item, too. So it’s essential to do your due diligence and ensure a product has all the right components of a true Shockwave product. 

 

Let’s take a look at what makes a product fake, why it’s important, and a checklist of things you need to look for.

 

What makes a product fake?

 

Fake products are anything that’s claimed to be something that it’s not, from designer bags to collector items and everything in between. Some gun dealers falsely claim the Chinese-made products they are selling are Shockwave products, made in America, and ATF approved. Genuine Shockwave products are truly made in America and ATF approved.

 

Why does it matter?

 

Think about it — if you pay $100 for a fake product that is normally $200 for the real product (for example), you didn’t save money at all. You just wasted $100 on something that is low quality, likely illegally made, potentially dangerous for you and/or your firearm to use, and won’t give you the product experience you think you’re getting with the real product. Giving even one dollar to a false manufacturer or dealer is supporting their scam and keeping them in business to continue growing and scamming gun buyers with their fake products. 

 

These unethical dealers not only rob ethical, American-made companies from providing the real deal to everyday guy buyers, but they rob their own customers by tricking them to spend their hard-earned money on a counterfeit product. If you’re going to pay hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars for a gun and gun parts, you deserve to get the real deal. 

 

Diligently examine the products you plan to purchase with the intent of finding a red flag. If you don’t find an immediate red flag, follow the checklist below. It’s better to be a skeptic going into purchasing expensive, dangerous products than it is to assume it’s legitimate.

 

How to make sure you’re getting a genuine firearm product:

 

  1. Does the price sound too good to be true? Then it probably is. The price of the gun or gun part should be reasonable and comparable. Huge discounts on high-end products, items that are highly underpriced from the average cost, or advertisements that push a major sense of urgency with a great deal (i.e. “one time only”) tend to be scams and counterfeits. 

  2. Is the dealer reputable and established? Check out their return policies, secure payment options, and make sure you’ll get a descriptive receipt. You can look at their FAQs, policies, and terms of purchase to understand what’s guaranteed. Here’s an example of this information that Shockwave provides. Be skeptical if you read passive words like “probably,” “in the style of,” or “type.” 

  3. Is there a serial number on the gun? Or a patent number on the Shockwave gun part? There should be. If there isn’t one, be skeptical. But how do you know if it’s a bogus number? You can check out Google’s Advanced Patent Search to determine if a patent number is real, and HotGunz to look up a gun’s serial number to determine if it has been stolen or a fake.

  4. Are there multiple photos of the gun? The best sellers and dealers will post multiple photos, including close-ups. Make sure the photos don’t look Photoshopped or altered. 

  5. Is there a detailed description? A complete description that shows all details of the product for sale is important for making sure all information is accurate. 

  6. Is there a secure payment method accepted? Do not use PayPal or a PayPal-affiliated platform, as they have banned firearm sales and will seize your transaction funds if you try to use it. Money orders and checks are a scammer’s preferred way to get paid because it’s untraceable and makes it easy to steal information for identity theft. The best bet is to pay securely via credit card.



Channel your inner detective.

 

Following the provided checklist is an important method to ensure you purchase a genuine product. But let’s walk through a couple actual fake copycats of Shockwave products and show you how to play detective. 

Counterfeit Shockwave Blade

This is a Chinese product that sold lookalike counterfeit items labeled as “Blade” — but don’t worry, we got them shut down. The item claimed to be a Shockwave Blade, but it was a fake. 


Counterfeit Raptor Grip

Counterfeit Raptor Grip

These items are still being sold and marketed as a Raptor grip, but don’t be fooled — this is no raptor grip. It is yet to be determined who is making these but they falsely claim to be a Raptor grip. 

 

They also claim these products are made in America, but that is yet to be determined. These items are counterfeit because they have no plug for the bolt hole and are not made by Shockwave Technologies or used by the Mossberg or Remington firearms.

 

When it comes to our Blades, it is especially important that consumers have a brace that is ATF approved for pistol use. We have found some very interesting ones on the market that are alarmingly fake (and ugly, if we might add).

 

New Shockwave Blades are labeled with our patent number. Grips have the Shockwave Technologies name on it and a plug in the back. 



Contact Shockwave directly to confirm.

 

Contact Shockwave Technologies directly to confirm that the site or product you are buying from is reputable and accurate. It also lets us know who else is out there trying to scam our customers into spending their hard-earned money on fake products. 

 

We continue to work closely with anti-counterfeiting attorneys to protect our customers from being scammed and receiving a low-quality product. We won’t let scammers continue to get away with it as much as we can help it. And you can help by letting us know if you come across a fake product being sold. 




Unfortunately, these scammers and counterfeit dealers are getting smarter every day. Even their packaging can look really similar to Shockwave’s, but it’s not from us. We invite you to help us combat these fake sellers and products by taking the steps we mentioned above, and let us know about it so we can work with our legal team to shut them down and protect our customers.
