    But just bolting down the GunVault regardless of corner or planes is better than not at all. It prevents the smash and grab thief.

    for BG coming up the street I use the howitzer mounted on the roof.

    If he gets past that he has to navigate through the field of bouncing betty and surplus anti tank mines on either side and caltrops in the road.

    If the BG escaped the howitzer and has run flat tires he better drive around the covered pit I dug last month.

    After he climbs out of the car he better move quick since my 4 blood thirsty German Shepards haven't eaten in a few hours.

    If he eludes the howitzer, has run flat tires, drives around the pit and loses the dogs he can start work on cracking open my front door which happens to be a salvaged provident bank valt door.

    After getting that open he can stare down the barrel of my M2-2.

    If he escapes the howitzer, mines, bouncing betty, caltrops, pit, dogs, cracks the valt, and my M2-2 he will be sad to know I have nothing to steal since I spent all my money on defenses...

    My gun is either on my hip or sitting holstered on my night stand within easy reach. (No kids in the house) I also have two Chocolate labs that go berserk if anyone enters the house. The rest of my guns are in a gun safe bolted to the floor in the basement.

    When I am home I have a TCP in my pocket at all times. When I go to bed the TCP goes in the cabinet, and the P95DC comes out. It has a magnetic mount on the head board of my bed.

    A small safe does protect small children, but it also make a great carrying case for dirtbags. I'd work towards getting a full size safe.

    Great looking dogs, we lost our RR last year...he was the best dog we've ever had, and we miss him dearly. He was a GREAT watchdog and an extremely loyal friend.

    As for my night time visitor set up?
    Well, one has to enter our home at night to see that...actually, all that would be seen is the first 'flash'.

    But that's just my opinion.

    Home Defense Set-ups?

    I also agree on the no pictures side, but I will tell you part of what I have. All external doors have hardened frames and lock assemblys with 3 inch screws. The perimeter of the house is watched by 6 IR color cameras feeding a 1TB hard drive with motion sensing. The motion detection on each camera is set for 5 feed inside of the property line and will give a beep beep alarm in the bedroom if tripped. Guns include but not limited to, Springfield Armory .45ACP with Corbon 185 GR Hollowpoints you can get an echo out of, G21 with the same, G19 with gun light and happy stick full of Corbon, Para Ordinance P16-40 with the same. These are in various locations. The bedroom door has an inside only frame lock on both sides, hinge and open side and is solid core changed from hollow core when the house was built. Two sets of motion sensing lights outside and all inside lights are X-10 remotes.

    Home defense?

    Here's mine......


    Seriously, I have the same 'lock-box' in my closet and another close to my desk.

    Bolting the safe down to the FLOOR would be the first thing. My uncle had stand up rifle safe (full over 400lbs) and it was carried off by two BG. Second, plan for the worst. What if one or more BG came in your home with or without dogs and for some reason you werent in your bedroom? What defense do you have now? Have SOMETHING in everyroom even if its not a pistol or rifle. I understand this can be hard with a child around, but someday it might save his/her/your life. I also noticed your dresser is right infront of a window. I dont care what floor the windows on, but would it be possible for the BG to take the (unbolted safe) and throw it through the window to the _________ (street?) below whail his buddy loads it up and makes a get away? Hopefully not. Smart thinking about trying to improve safety...
