If you are only fond of hunting and their home is very safe, there will be no need for you to use the gun for protecting your life then you can forget about the purpose of having a rifle to protect your home.

But in case you need a rifle for both purpose of hunting and home defense then you should have a look at some specialized air rifle. Of course, all the rifles are made with few features for self protection in a very safe living environment. But there are some manufacturers who have produced a kind of rifle which can work for both hunting and home defense.
A type of air rifle for hunting and home defense
In the market now, there is the type of rifle called assault rifle and some of its product can be M4/AR15/M16 type rifle. These kinds of rifles are reviewed as very good guns but the price of them is quite high because of their high-velocity ammunition.
For 2 in 1 purpose in the rifle for home defense as an additional purpose, the rifle is likely to have a lever-action carbine. The function is very reliably and easily to operate, and the ability to hit the target is very high. This kind of rifle is well known for working well in a very short range distance shooting. Ammo ranges of product have had a lot of this kind, it is available in the market and the price is affordable.
There are also other choice for the air rifle with additional purpose and function for home defense. Of course, all of them have the lever-action. A 38 Special/357 Magnum can be one of other choice for you. This kind of rifle can not be as effective as the one mentioned above but at it is widely used and the low cost is a great advantage of this type of rifle. Reviews of users showed that both of these rifles are good and effective for the additional and supplementary function of home defense because they have wide ammo with reasonable cost, reliability, easy to operate.
Another very famous air rifle for home defense is AK-47 because it is an affordable home-defense air rifle. They are quite affordable and very reliable, and ammo the cost is normally reasonable. The disadvantage is that they can be good at home defense but is quite weak as the hunting air rifle.
So when you would like to compare rifle among rifles, you should consider about the price, the availability, and the effectiveness for both hunting and home defense. You have to remember that the rifle must be good and work well for both purpose or in some case it there is one purpose installed for additional or supplementary purpose then the main purpose must be emphasized otherwise this is not considered as a good air rifle. Cost comparison is another thing you should focus on because not all the time the higher can be the better and can serve your purpose well rather than the cheaper one.
Transfer function feature
When you equip yourself with a 2 in 1 function air rifle, you have to remember that in order to change to another purpose you have to use the transfer function button or press in the body of the air rifle. Meaning in order to protect the user in transferring the function of the air rifle, manufacturers have designed there is a press or trigger for the user to use when they would like to choose their appropriate functions for the air rifle in the certain case.
It is one of the ways to protect the users from hurting themselves as well as hurting others and destroying things near the target. Normally the trigger or the press is very easy to use and is designed in the area which is rarely touched in the air rifle to prevent the case that the user can unexpectedly press the trigger when performing the air rifle.
It is better for you to choose this kind of air rifle rather than the one which do not have any automatic function for transferring purpose. Some people who think that they are very good at hunting they can think that they can waste an amount of money to buy this one. Because they can control the speed and know how to manage with the air rifle so they do not need the press to transfer they can adjust and use it for the accurate purpose of home defense or hunting. In any way, it is up to your choice but you must remember that safety is the most important thing when dealing with the real air rifle in real life.
Different bullet for different purpose
It is better for you to choose different bullet for different choice. Because your air rifle will be hung or placed in your house all the time, so the bullet in the air rifle if have inside all the time should be the one for home defense with a less powerful hurting capacity. When you take the air rifle for hunting then you can change the right bullet.
