I'm just wondering what your defensive plans are in case of a home invasion while you and your family are home. The only reason that my family would not get out of the house would be that weare on the second floor with no quick exit. My strategy is to get all of family into a locked room at the end of the second floor. I woud be in the middle of the hallway in a kneeling position with my 20 guage Remington 870 loaded with #8 shot (that's all I have, any advice for good buckshot?) and a Ruger MkII .22 with 10 rounds and also a fast open CRKT M16 knife as backup, Marine Corps unarmed combat training as a LAST RESORT. If the perp(s) got past myself (how?) he would run ito my father with my M1 Carbine with a 30 rounder full of .30 Carbine soft points, and as a backup to that my sister with 14 rounds of .22 HP's. My mother would be on the phone with 911giving the situation report. Sorry for being so lon winded , feel free to be longer than mine in your response.
