    I'm not worried about car jacking...my cars are all 15-17 yrs old...no one is going to choose to hijack my vehicle when there's lots of shiny new ones available.
    I not worried about home invasion...as you may have read in some of my previous posts on this forum, I live inside a fortress of solitude...no one gets in without a 'pass'.
    Nor am I worried about SHTF scenarios...I'm still sitting on arsenal acquired for SHTF over 30 years ago and S hasn't HTF yet.
    And I'm not worried about #4 either...whatever that is...zombies maybe? The zombie traps the 150 yd perimeter will handle them.

    The only scenario I am concerned about is a public mass shooting attempt like a movie theater or
    restaurant, or maybe being in the wrong place at the wrong time when a gas station robbery occurs, or a face to face robbery at gunpoint on the street, which I have personally experienced.
    Haven't seen a real zombie yet though...other than a few meth heads at WW.

    1. Carjacker approaches me while I am outside of the car and demands my keys. I would toss the keys one way and run the other.
    2. Carjacker approaches from driver or passenger side window. I would attempt to drive away.
    3. Carjacker enters vehicle. I would jump out at my first chance.

    Your #2......was stopped at a light on a remote road at 2:30am when suddenly my passenger side front door is being forced / tugged open by some guy....lucky for me my doors were locked and lucky for him .... he didn't see my GS / Rebel asleep on the front passenger seat in the dark of my truck......all he saw were white fangs in the dark and dog spit on the window......he left rather quickly.

    Now if my doors were not locked......well it would have been a real rodeo right out there.

    I was thinking the same thing. In a side note, I have heard that if your keys are stolen, they can find the car by simply walking around hitting one of the buttons to make the lights and horn go off. Once they have the car and tag with registration inside, they have your house address and the keys there.

    Home invasion? Don't bother kicking the door. It's unlocked, come right on in.

    SHTF? Most of us veterans have already been there, and got the t shirt.


    Ill tell ya what really kills people; stress from worry, lack of exercise, and smoking, or excessive drinking.
    Excessive drinking? Really? Glad I don't smoke.
