Two Suggested Additions For Home Security
Lurked but never posted in this forum...
Reading through the posts, I notice I have a couple of things not mentioned. One is industrial 36" cable ties, duct tape and a bull whip.
I'll explain.. The cable ties are through out the house. Top of refrigerator, table by front door etc. They are for subduing a non lethal threat. For example the knothead that throws up his hands when he sees I have a gun pointed at him. Same for the duct tape.
The bullwhip (10 foot) is for when the knothead takes off running. Remember, we can't shoot him at this point.. But if I can catch him, he can go to jail. There are tons of videos and publications on their use. Out of curiosity more than anything, I have became quiet proficent at catching (willing) people. I trip them with a couple of wraps around the legs and once on the ground, I can tie them up.
Just some thoughts...
ps, fire extinguishers are also handy. It will scare the crap out of you for just enough time to disorientate someone when sprayed in the face.
