    I plan to buy two of them, one for each entrance. For the windows, automated machine guns.

    I'm having a special all-titanium house built around the two guns. Gotta make sure I tell the builders to lay down some railroad tracks by the back and front door so we'll have somewhere to put the guns. May be a little expensive, but our safety is my top priority. Gotta find some way to get out the front door though...

    I have a neighbor who doesnt like his wife... at all.

    He says shes ugly enough to scare them all away, so he doesnt need anything else.... its an interesting tactic. Might save you some money.

    Don't remember where I found this, but I saved it because I like BIG!

    Gustav Gun
    The largest gun ever used in combat is generally accepted to be the German "Gustav Gun" (and its sister canon "Dora") built in 1941 by the Krupp company. It had an 80 cm bore (31.5") and fired either a 10,500 lb HE projectile (which made a crater 30 feet wide and 30 feet deep) or a 16,500 lb concrete piercing projectile (which would penetrate 264 feet(!) of reinforced concrete). The typical powder charge was about 3000 lb of powder. The range was between 23 and 29 miles and the muzzle velocity was about 2700 f/s. The gun weighed 1344 tons and had a crew of 500 men. It was used by the German's during the siege at Sevestapol in April 1942.

    One round from Gustav destroyed a Russian ammunition dump 100 feet below Severnaya Bay and covered by 10 meters of concrete, and a near miss capsized a large ship in the harbor. Gustav fired 300 rounds during the siege wearing out the original barrel in the process. A second gun, called "Dora" was set up west of Stalingrad in mid-August. It was hurriedly withdrawn in September to avoid capture and never saw action. Gustav next appeared outside Warsaw, Poland, where it fired 30 rounds into Warsaw Ghetto during the 1944 uprising.
    Late in WW II the US developed a "mortar" called the Little David which fired a 36 inch (92.5 cm), 3700 pound shell containing about 3/4 ton of explosives about 10,000 yards. Intended for use during the invasion of the Japanese homeland, it was never fired in combat.

    I, personally, would be concerned about overpenetration into a neighbor's house. Maybe I'd get one if they sold hollow points for it.
