American Survival Guide
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.
