postheadericon Honor Defense Press Release Regarding Unintended Discharge Of Their Firearms, Offers Upgrades

Not too long ago, a few videos surfaced that showed the user hitting an Honor Defense Honor Guard pistol on the rear of the slide with a rubber mallet, making the firearm discharge. Drop tests were also conducted and at times, the firearm would discharge.

In response, Honor Defense did some investigating and have completed a few upgrades to their pistol line. Take a look at the PR below:

Honor Defense offers Voluntary Upgrade for Honor Guard Pistols

Published Date: 01/18/2017

Gainesville, GA (January 18, 2017) – All Honor Defense pistols meet or exceed industry and U.S.A standards for safety. These include the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) / Sporting Arms Ammunition Manufacturers’ Institute, Inc. (SAAMI®), and the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) test protocols. Abusive handling (drop tests and jar off tests) have been conducted internally and confirmed by an outside laboratory recognized by the State of California.

Recent events indicate that handling an Honor Guard pistol beyond U.S.A. safety standards by dropping or striking the firearm with a hammer may cause an unintentional discharge. As a result, Honor Defense has developed an upgrade to the Honor Guard striker assembly (within the slide).

To receive the upgrade, go the Honor Defense website and follow the directions outlined in the Honor Guard Upgrade section. Once received, Honor Defense will upgrade your slide unit and promptly return it to you.

This upgrade will provide increased drop performance beyond U.S.A safety standards and is available to all owners of an Honor Guard pistol.

Details of this program will be available on www.honordefense.com on January 21, 2018.

Honor Defense is committed to providing the best single stack pistols for personal protection and using only American craftsmanship and parts for our firearms. Honor Defense pistols have been designed utilizing 100% USA parts, materials with every firearm assembled by Veterans.

Honor Defense is also committed to safety and ensuring we produce the finest possible firearms. For example, in addition to exceeding industry standards, the Honor Guard is designed for disassembly without pulling the trigger, or the use of tools. This is part of the Honor Defense commitment to safety and overcomes one of the major safety issues consumers have with striker-fired firearms. The added feature of a take-down lever eliminates a disassembly activity that could potentially lead to an accidental discharge.

postheadericon Fugitive Home Intruder In Recent Home Invasion Cited As “Not A Threat To Public Safety” — Why Home Defense Is Up To You

AUBURN, NEW HAMPSHIRE — A lieutenant of a small New Hampshire town told the public that a home intruder who fled their pursuit is not to be considered a threat to public safety. This is after a home owner discovered that same man breaking into his home during the morning hours. The homeowner fired a single shot at the intruder, sending the suspect fleeing into the woods.

According to NH 1 News, Rockingham County deputies and New Hampshire State Police pursued the suspect for a limited time before losing track of him. The suspect’s general description was given to the local news media outlets but the enthusiasm in tracking this suspect down seems to be very limited.

Home defense really does come down to you. The police will show up after it’s over and gladly take your statement after the fact but they’re not interested in pursuing someone for several days or even several hours.

Think to yourself: what if this man was violent? What if he had no qualms about using violence to achieve his means and it was just one armed homeowner stopping him?

Now ask what would have happened if that homeowner had not been armed.

This is why home defense is safely within the jurisdiction of the occupants of that home. It’s every person’s duty to be prepared to fight off potential intruders. Each household can approach this in a fashion that benefits them best, but ultimately they have to pursue it.

In a future article, we’ll talk a bit more about home defense preparedness. There’s an issue of either staging a gun where it’s accessible for trusted family members to use or always carrying. We prefer always carrying. It’s a good habit to get into as a licensed concealed carrier and it’s also a fantastic choice for those who are just interested in keeping their home a bit safer.

You can’t use a gun that you don’t have on you. Your home deserves it and your family deserves it, too. Think defensively and carry within the home.
