    Or is it just an implication connecting Ky people to the characters in the movie?

    Come on, I want to laugh too.
    Sorry if I offended you, which I sense that I did. No slur on the people of the state of Kentucky. I have lived and worked in the south during my career and the people there always treated me nicely. I was trying to make a joke about having people chasing you and what you classified as an "extreme situation." Obviously, it did not come across as something you thought was funny. I apologize.

    No offense taken, I was just trying to understand the connection.

    After reading these responses, most on here IMO, need to practice the Home Invasion Drill (Door flies open, "We're here") ....unless someone in the home is carrying you can forget gun vaults in the bedroom and safes unless you can fight your way to them with some time to spare......otherwise....you pretty much Toast.

    What are your go-to weapon(s) for home defense?

    We have two places; one is our home in an urban setting about a mile from the downtown area. The other is a cabin in a very rural mountain setting in NM. My primary HD go-to in both locations is a S&W 357 k-frame revolver stoked with Buffalo Bore FBI loads and a speedloader with the same. I also keep a double barrel 12ga at the cabin with a slug in one chamber and 00 buck in the other. Crime just isn't a big concern in either location, so I feel very adequately prepared for any likely encounter.

    Yes Taurus really does suck. But in fairness they sure turned it around fast on warranty repair. Time will tell

    First and foremost, if the dog doesn't scare em off, my EDC, a m&p 2.0 40c. It goes on the nightstand when I go to bed. On the headboard on my side is a Taurus model 669 in 357, with 158 gr SWC. On the wife's side is a colt officer's model 38spec with 38spec version of SWC in I think also 158gr. Across the 3 ft wide hall I have all sorts of toys in my gun cabinets (yes cabinets not safes) 4 double barrels ranging from 410 to 10 gauge, a wingmaster, and assorted rifles to include 2 in 32 caliber- 1 pump 1 lever. Except for 3 places inside, I wouldn't be shooting further than about 10 yards. Those 3 places might hit 15 yards. Since I live in the city, I shouldn't have to reach out and touch someone, however, in civil unrest, if I need.to shoot to the end of the street, the 32 win special is good for 300 yards, and the 303 is sighted in at 1/4 mile (I ain't what I used to be, may need to look for an easy mount scope mount for the 303)

    I keep it pretty simple. I live in a subdivision that backs up to a heavily wooded area. A Glock 30 loaded w/ 230 gr HST is my primary go-to with a AR pistol as a back-up. I don't envision needing anymore than that combination for my current environment. YMMV.

    How right you are, brother. In both cases, all the thieves are in the State houses!

    We almost bought a little piece of property just outside Cloudcroft, NM. It backed up to the the National Forest, and the only reason we didn't is the access road was about 10 miles of boulder climbing goat track.

    And just an update for me. As I am writing this, I am alone, as my wife is out of town taking care of some property she inherited and is trying to sell. Our daughter is at work. So...empty house, no cars in the driveway, makes a tempting target. No? In anticipation, I have the 930 SPX stuffed with 8 rounds of LE132-1B sitting about 2 feet from my easy chair - in addition to what I always carry on my belt. At least I won't go down without a skirmish.

    @KevinRohrer Very nice!

    I believe in the Joe Biden school of home defense, double barrel shotgun fired into the bushes (to scare away the potential intruder) and a call to 911....
    When Guns Are Outlawed, Only Outlaws will have guns

    Just remember, When seconds count help is mere minutes away

    Also remember, When you go to trial by jury you are putting yourself into the hands of 12 people who weren't smart enough to get out of jury duty.
