That is possible for sure, but in my 4 beadroom, each bedroom has mechanism that easily unlocks the outside bars. The other parts of the house offer easy access in the case of a fire.

The idea of home defense is multi-layered. That is all I was implying.

Those beliefs were reinforced when I watched something on tv today about a home invasion at 4:30am when a man and woman were on their way to work. As soon as they opened the garage door, they were rushed by 3 goons. Granted, if someone wants to do you harm, they will, regardless of your proactive defense measures. But...the safety of my family depends on my vigilance----> weapons, burglar bars, CCL, security system, dogs, well lighted areas surrounding the house, manicured shrubs and trees, counter-measures for all blindspots and gaps. With that said, they will have to work extra hard to do my family harm. Someone quoted earlier...."I'm not paranoid, I'm prepared."
There are just too many goons that are willing to take by force instead of earning an honest days living, and I refuse to let myself or my family be a victim.

Yep, we will all have nothing, but at least we'll all be equal!

Sorry, I don't wish to become equal to someone who has done nothing in their life... The beauty of America, is that you can study, work hard, and achieve something better.... Don't take what I've earned and give it away... If you want that kind if life, relocate to a country that embraces a socialistic form of Govt... 1/2 of America now depends on the govt... A real shame for the rest of us

IMO the biggest problem is that the big dogs in charge don't care......why would they, whether they do a good job or a bad job their salary is paid. Heck even after their terms are over their salary is paid for the rest of their life...talk about being equal, if we all have to be "equal", they should too. Lets take the same money out of their checks they take out of mine and see how quickly they all start realizing how bad of a system it is.

Anyway this is very off topic....lol

I have a springfield xd 45 loaded with remington hollow points. I'm more comfortable with the 45 than any other gun. It fits my hand well.
My xd:


A gun that would be great for someone just getting in to firearms and home defense is this Kel-Tec PMR 30. It's a 22 magnum, so you get the same fast flight and affordability of the 22 but with a bigger punch. Many people over look this caliber but it can be a devastating round.
Kel-Tec PMR 30

Most of the deaths I investigated during my 35+ years involved a .22 but that was before the larger calibers became so popular. There is no doubt that a .22 will do massive damage internally especially if it doesn't exit and just ricochets around inside.

A hole through your body is still a hole through your body....doesn't matter if it's a 1/8" or 1", it will still hurt like hell...besides, it's all about placement. I prefer a .22 due to how inexpensive they are and how easy they are to shoot.

You're correct. You have to be accurate in order for it to be effective!

I have a fairly inexpensive alarm system for the doors and first floor windows.

I keep a Glock 23 in my nightstand and a Remington 870 inside my closet.
