HOME DE­FENSE

-

When de­fend­ing a home, the de­fault is to rely on firearms, but pos­sess­ing firearms is only half the equa­tion. Be­ing able to uti­lize the ap­pro­pri­ate firearms in the proper sit­u­a­tions and lo­ca­tions is the cru­cial half. If some­one is at­tempt­ing to en­ter your home and take your sup­plies, they are in a state of des­per­a­tion and per­sonal fear. Gen­er­ally, they are at­tempt­ing to take your sup­plies be­cause they were too lazy to pre­pare their own or did not have proper de­fenses to pro­tect their own goods.

To avoid this sit­u­a­tion, a home should be set up with pro­gres­sive fall­back lo­ca­tions. Heavy and longer-dis­tance firearms should be set near the win­dows to pro­tect from out­side threats en­ter­ing a build­ing. Smaller and pow­er­ful firearms should be set up along door­ways and hall­ways where any in­vaders would be bot­tle­necked. Lastly, the most dis­tant fall­back lo­ca­tion in the home should be where the ma­jor­ity of am­mu­ni­tion and over­stock sup­plies should be stored. If some­one has enough force to find this cache, it’s most likely go­ing to be where a last stand takes place. Most peo­ple would run at the first sign of sig­nif­i­cant op­po­si­tion.
