    Glad to hear your cool, Gene.

    Me and Shake had a threat of break-in at our old house. We had lead pipes, 3 foot dows of wood, and various knives and hatches strategically scattered through out the house. I slept with my Butterfly Swords next to my bed and a .22 in the closet. I wanted to use my Butterfly Swords, but they were kinda dull so I would of opted for the .22. No break in though, I'm happy to say. Well at least none while we were there.
    We had someone pry off the screen on a window, bust a small corner out of the window, reach in and unlock the window, climb through, and steal $500...We think we know who it was cause when we confronted him he skipped town.

    Throwing knives and a tonfa by my bed, and a great combat pocket knife.

    Glad to hear you're ok gene. I had someone kick my front door in about 3 years ago while I was in the living room sleeping on the couch... I wasnt wearing my glasses and Im legally blind, so I couldnt really see ****... I guess whoever it was saw me staggering towards the door and ran though.
    Then last year, I looked out my window and saw someone ****ing with my jeep, so I grabbed the katan I used to have and ran outside, but they had seen me peek out the window and ran. A few minutes later I see them cruise back by in the same truck, but they also see me duck and roll into the bushes with a sword... Needless to say they didnt come back again.
    Then a few months ago some little rat ******* middleschoolers were out on their bikes breaking windows and I heard them, and they were right by my jeep so I figured they did something to my jeep... I run outside in my boxer briefs and start chasing them, and I guess since I was barefoot the little buggers didnt hear me. I catch up to the slowest one who is wearing a backpack and grab his backpack and pull him off his bike. I drag him back to my jeep telling him the whole time that his friends arent good friends for leaving him, and nothing better be wrong with my jeep. lol. I get back to the jeep, nothing is wrong, and since I dont have my glasses I cant see if anything happened to a neighbors house, and no neighbors were out so I let him go.

    But yes... Glad you are ok gene. Any sort of wooden club is a choice home defense tool.

    We've also got a weapons rack. On it are some poles, a hockey stick, a baseball bat, and tape bat, and a kendo stick.

    The tape bat is a bat completely made out of layered duct tape. Its about two inches thick. Trust me, its hurts real bad to get whacked with the tape bat. If you scrape it across someone it will tear flesh. Its about 2 and 1/2 ft long. Its like a heavy whip, and when you swing it at someone and hit them with it, it really hurts.

    How we came to make the tape bat, and its purpose.....

    Well, thats a different story all together.

    I don't keep guns in my house. All my guns are with my folks. I feel a bit uneasy because we are all young and party a lot. Last thing I want is some drunk idiot getting into them, so I don't keep them there. As for bedside weapons I just have a decent pocket knife in the nightstand drawer next to the bed.

    I never told anyone about the heater. I feel the same way as you, but never let anyone near my room during parties. Also, we know never to play with guns...no matter how spackled we may be.

    Glad the guy didn't get in. Near my bed I have some tonfas, and a tactical folder. Motion detecting lights are a good buy, especially in the backyard.

    You could always be cheap, and set up punji traps everywhere, patrolled by guard dogs.

    Glad you and your family are okay Gene. I had a similar experience some years ago. I went for the hall closet where I had some baseball equipment and in my haste grabbed my son's wiffle ball bat! Fortuneately, the guy had run off when he heard me, but funny in retrospect.

    On john Stossel a while ago he interviewed some of these muggers and stuff. Their biggst fear is that the person will have a gun.

    If that's the case Jun - I'm the intruders worst nightmare

    Hmmm, too many weapons to choose from...Glock 17, S&W .357, AR-15, ahhh yes, the good ol' Mossberg 590 12 gauge.

    at least...

    Saw you speaking about a Glock yourself...I highly recommend the Glock 21, I had one but had to sell it when things got hard years ago. I always liked the bigger .45 caliber compared to the 9mm, and if you use the Glaser rounds you'll put someone down quick without worrying about accidently hurting an innocent. Good stuff.

    Of course my pops is more "gun crazy" than I am, and with all the guns he has he chooses a single shot 12 gauge beside his bed, equipped with a nice bandolier of 12 ga rounds. He says if he needs more than that then it's his time to go LOL.

    Last time I went shooting (which was the first time in years), my buddy the gun nut gave me a wide range to test taste before I went shopping.

    The Glock 21 was on the top of my list. By far the best control of recoil, I was actually able to group fairly well without haveing fired a gn in five years.

    I too prefer the larger rounds.

    The Baby Glock was a neat toy.

    I also enjoyed the Makarov police issue automatic - while only a .38, it was incredibally accurate for me.

    The Kimber 1911 wasn't bad either, but 1911's have a long history of going off when they feel like it.

    Went through about 20 pistols. Glock was my favorite, and still is.

    I have heard of many lawsuits where a perp was injured by the homeowner and sued them for being hurt. So if someone breaks in to your home should you shoot to kill? How many of you would be so quick to do so?
