You know I believe that the best weapon to protect yourself is a gun…
If someone is trying to smash through my front door in the middle of the night, I want a pistol, shotgun, or AR-15.
But sometimes, home invasions happen so fast that you can’t get to your gun.
Maybe the home invasion takes place in the evening when you’re in the kitchen, and all you can grab is a knife.
That’s certainly better than nothing, and it saved the man in the following story…
One morning, he was at home when multiple men broke into his house – 4 criminals in all.
All he had was a knife, so he started stabbing like crazy to defend himself.
One of the intruders had a sawed-off shotgun that the man could wrestle away from him.
The man then fled his own house with the shotgun in hand and called the police from a neighbour’s house.
One of the intruders died from the stab wounds, and the homeowner was okay.
Now, 4 against 1 is definitely not a position anyone wants to find themselves in.
But criminals travel in packs (birds of a feather), and my home invasion plans always assume there will be multiple intruders.
This is why my gun holds more than 18 rounds and is not a single-shot and why I have a spare magazine with it.
This is why I have rapid-access safes (with a gun inside) throughout my house.
This is why I use Speer Gold Dot hollow point ammo because I want the best ammo in my gun to stop multiple threats.
This is why I also have knives stashed throughout the house, just in case. (Those magnetic strips and gun magnets work fantastically to hold your utensils.)
So, as you’re taking a look at your home defence plans…
Make sure you’re prepared for 3 or 4 intruders, and you’re not relying on a one-shot Derringer.
And don’t forget to stash knives around like this deadly beauty here.
With many desperate people today, you don’t want to take any chances that you won’t be able to defend yourself, no matter who busts through your door.
