On a recent episode of Business Innovators Radio with Philipp Lomboy, Fabio Spinella, Firearms Instructor and Home Defense Consultant, discussed setting the right expectations for home defense.
According to Spinella, people think very little about home defense, and when they do there are lots of misconceptions and myths that go along with it.
Spinella, said “Most people, I think, would say that they don’t think about [home defense] until they have a family and have a growth of responsibility.”
When host Philipp Lomboy asked what do people get wrong when it comes to protecting their family and home, Spinella answered, “The most obvious one is people using their firearm like an imaginary safety blanket. ‘I’ve got a firearm, so I’m safe.’”
During the interview Spinella shared how you should talk to your family, particularly your kids, about your home defense plan, explaining, “Every family is different, every house is different. Everybody has a responsibility and those responsibilities change as age changes, as proficiency changes.” As his own children are very young, Spinella explained that he keeps it very simple, telling them, “If Mommy comes to your room you’re just gonna follow her. You’re gonna go to this place, and you’re gonna stay as quiet as you possibly can.”
Fabio Spinella is a USCCA certified firearms instructor, competitive shooter, and home defense consultant. He is the Owner of My Own Defender which provides firearms training and firearms customizations to clients nationwide.
The interview concluded with Spinella warning people not to focus on the wrong things, “What [firearm] are you actually going to use for self defense? Take that to the range with an instructor that understands self defense, and work on self defense skills. Because those are different than marksmanship skills.”
