” … the right to defend one’s home and one’s person when attacked has been guaranteed through the ages by common law.”   – Martin Luther King

We just returned from the NRA Carry Guard Expo in Milwaukee, Wisconsin where over 150 exhibitors spent 3 days focused entirely on personal protection.

According to Gallup polls conducted in 2013 and 2014:

60% of Americans own a gun for personal safety and protection.

63% of American feel safer with a gun in their home.


We know that many of you rely on your Just Right Carbine as your primary home defense firearm. That’s why we felt it was important to participate in the NRA Carry Guard Expo and spread the word about the practicality of using a pistol caliber carbine for personal protection.

Why a JRC for Home Defense?

The KeyMod rail provides plenty of real estate for optics, grips or lasers. Customize the set up just the way you like it.

  • Pistol Magazine Compatibility – makes transitioning from pistol to rifle much quicker when you don’t have take time  to differentiate. Just Right Carbine models are designed to work with the Glock or M&P pistol magazines you already use in your handgun.
  • Lower Recoil/Suppression – significantly less recoil than an AR or shotgun makes it easy for a beginner to handle and makes follow up shots less intimidating. Adding a suppressor protects your hearing allowing you to continue to accurately assess the situation and make that crucial follow up shot if necessary.
  • Performance/Accuracy – increased barrel length means increased velocity and stability. Just Right Carbines offer models in a variety of popular pistol calibers and with today’s improved ammunition, you’ll have all the stopping power you need.
  • Capacity/Reloading – the 9mm JRC can easily accept a Glock 33 round magazine (always be aware of local laws regarding magazine capacity) and with a quick touch of a button,reload a new magazine and be ready to fire again. No need to manually load cartridges like a shotgun or revolver.
  • Multi-Use – The Just Right Carbine is designed to be the perfect gun for practice at the range, 3-Gun competition,hunting, traveling along as a boat or truck gun, and home defense.

The JRC Takedown is ready to stow and go – perfect for the truck, boat, camping or a quick trip to the range.
