    You don't need to get burned out of your castle and forced into the street at a time when the fire department will likely be busy everywhere else.

    And have a couple of sheets of 1" plywood handy to close up that sliding glass door should the need ever arise.
    Personally, I'm sitting here, thinking "hmmm a couple dozen 250 round belts of 7.62x51 with every 5th round a tracer, just in case I need to lead em a little bit." while my 2 boys can utilize the other mag fed guns in order to hold down the fort. Lock and load, rock and roll

    I found out recently I live in the safest neighborhood I possibly could. My street is only one block long and ends in a cul-de-sac. There is deep water on all three sides. I am the only one on the block who isn't a current or retired pilot. Most of which are former air force or marines. I have electrically operated hurricane/security shutters on every window and sliding glass door. The front door and garage entry door are reinforced fiberglass with dead bolts. I found out at a recent block party that most of my neighbors are gun freaks and several have secret panels that hide large gun cabinets and safes. We have all been buying large quantities of ammo and stock piling it. Lots of 12 ga. 00 buck and .223 ammo. Let 'em come!

    If there is a widespread breakdown in law and order and roving bands of marauders are in the neighborhood, the LAST thing I'll worry about is what the DA thinks.

    Warning signs, armed sentries, and shoot to kill if threatened. Leave the bodies in the street as a warning to anyone else who comes through. If it happens, it ain't gonna be pretty and the law will be a long time coming back out to where I am.

    Try to put together some type of shelter inside your house. I'm in the planning stage for one myself. The ideal room would stand up to any natural disaster (tornado, flood, power outage, fire, etc) depending on where you live. Obviously you can only do what you can afford. Try to make it secure against home invasions. Some cheap scrap iron in the walls would make it bulletproof and leave room for shooting ports. Secure the doors well and try to have a hidden way of escape. It would be a good place to store supplies that you want to have anyway such as extra food, water, batteries, radios, 1st aid, cell phone, a stocked gun safe, etc. Some tools would be good in case you need to dig out from a tornado, etc. Ideally it would have a way to supply fresh air or at least quality filter masks. I would store my scuba tanks there for a few hours worth of pure air. I plan to put together what I can afford, which isn't much, but is better than nothing. If a person, mob or disaster compromises the security of the rest of your home, there will be a place to go until you plan your bug out.

    Bulletproof




    Bullet resistant.

    I'd not want to hang out long behind 1/2 plate. Another 20 rounds @ 300m started to rip through the center. Didn't bother to see what would happen at anything closer than 100m (no fun).
