    This is why.

    This is why you carry at home.
    This is why you have it ready when you sleep.
    This is why you train for when a gun is not the answer.
    This is why you fortify your doors and windows.
    This is why you get training for your spouse.
    This is why she has a gun, too.

    It could be worse!
    I suppose

    That is, indeed, the reason why I do those things you mention.

    Shot isn't always down, and down isn't always out... Sorry for the trauma she endured, but proud that she took him on. It's all in the mindset.

    It reminded me of something that happened to a man not far from me last year.He woke up early one morning and a man was standing over him with a hatchet.The homeowner slept with a gun under his pillow,hatchet lost.I always keep mine near me but i'm scared to have it under my pillow. That said it worked for him and each to their own.

    I would add a security system which would give you a warning as well as a good dog. It will at a minimum provide you a warning and possibly serve as a deterrent. Plus you never know it might actually attack the guy.

    This is why I set the alarm, Make sure the dog has access to all rooms (no closed doors,) except outside doors, place my laser sighted pistol and light on the night stand. 24/7 for many years. Paranoid? well maybe a little.
