WATCH: Kel-Tec KS7 Shotgun

posted on January 29, 2019
Kel-Tec firearm fans are familiar with the company's KSG lineup of shotguns, which are equipped with twin magazine tube for increased capacity. However, the original KSG and the KSG-25 are heavy and unwieldy with a full loadout, so the company aimed to provide consumers with a light, compact, maneuverable option for personal defense in the form of the KS7. This new design features a single, under-barrel tube magazine that reduces capacity over the company's original KSG but makes the gun lighter, smaller and easier to handle.

For all the details on the Kel-Tec KS7, check out our range video above and see our full range review on the KS7 here.

What is the Greatest Defensive Skill?

You can say what you want to about your favorite defensive school or those advanced-fighting techniques you learned, but the greatest defensive skill that a person can develop is simply awareness. I will freely admit that developing effective awareness is anything but simple, but being able to spot trouble before it is close enough to get in your face will certainly save you from a lot of trouble and possibly even some pain and grief.
