    I have been trying to find this story in the news. I can't seem to find anything on it. Do you have a link? There was one 2 weeks ago in your area with 4 home invaders but nothing with 13.
    You may now carry on with your absurd non-directional bantering.

    13 of Them?

    I have two Glocks in bed with me at 13/mag each - so they can have 2 each and then the next mags for Act II, commencing immediately.

    These threads make me want to buy and convert a Saiga 12.



    That being said, the most important thing is hardening your house so that you have time to reach that long gun/wake up/get dressed/put on your glasses/get the kids out of the line of fire etc. Hardening your home is the most important and least done thing imho.

    Have to agree with Guardian. Someone getting the drop on you on your way out the front door is rough. I know everyone here will say 'sa sa sa' but I do not tend to scope out my front yard before exiting. Unless you leave with an AR on your shoulder then fighting with one is unlikely.

    Sure if I know they're coming then me and my AR10 would send rounds through the door. But then again if I knew they were coming I wouldn't be home.

    to me, It IS worth the risk.

    there are too many recent stories for me to "just do what they say".
    Agreed!

    Mossberg 590 with 8 rounds 00 followed by XD45 with spare mag.

    I also agree with those who say that should clear the premises of any BGs but I do have two other 45 pistols on the night stand if needed.

    I agree with exceptions. First I live alone so nobody else to worry about. Second, "get dressed"? I don't think so. I'll be opening fire naked, the way I sleep.

    That alone would be enough to send most BGs on their way!

    I searched for this, and didn't really find a good explanation.
    Could you expand on it?

    I agree with Bark'n and so many of the others in this thread. Most home invasions may involve one or two perps, but you have to think of the worst-case scenario and plan accordingly. I wouldn't count on the racking of my shotgun to scare away the perps either; that may just kick things off. Of course, if I can have a "shot-free event", so much the better!

    I respectfully disagree with this statement. Recent research is starting to prove that old adage incorrect. It's like they say, what do economist know about crime and since they never have in the past really hooked the two up in a true sense that I can find (I could be wrong) I just can't find it right now, the article linked below states differently starting as of 2000. It's starting to prove that bad economy and crime has all along been link together, just not put together effectively if I'm reading it right and actually common sense tells me bad economy raises crime, I don't need statistics to tell me that. I read it in the papers, watch the news.

    Google Economy and Crime and their is plenty historic information it.
