I hope this is the right place to post this thread. Here's my question:
I'll be moving into a new home soon and need advice on what room to fortify for a safe room. I don't have plans to go crazy, just a good solid door with deadbolt and some supplies like: spare pre-paid cell phone, things written to include in call to 911 dispatcher, extra set of house keys to toss out the window for LEO when they arrive, and the usual secure firearms supply.
My first thoughts are to have my own bedroom be the place, but what happens when things go bump in the night? Do run across the hall, grab your children and bring them to your room, or do you grab your SD weapon of choice and run to the child's room?
The two rooms are both at the end of the hallway upstairs. They are both close to the same size. One is at the front of the house, and one is at the back (both share an outside end wall). For our purposes they are identical. I'm certain that I can install a lock box in the spare closet of my child's room for essentials and even a gun-vault for a separate handgun. I would feel comfortable doing this.
Still, my own bedroom would afford me more options.
What makes the most tactical sense? What would you do?
