Maybe it's just me or my 10 years of Tang Soo Do training/hobby. Gun vs. Knife/bat/bar/fist/etc. is not self defense imo.
Rich, whenever you read this sig remember to stay away from Gen OT, if you see this sig in Gen OT delete your last post. Feel free to add me to Battle.net MoragRattus#2635. montyrat on Steam. my youtube channel full of crap
At the times I'm alone in the house (living at my parents again due to employment issues) I keep a rather large wrench by the stairs up (yay for renting a basement room). For when i think someone's breaking in.
Since the chance anyone breaking in has more than a knife is basicly nothing, and they'll more likely bolt the minute they hear someone is home, I feel very protected with it.
It's a good size to give me better reach than general easily hidden knives, and can easily be used in tight corridors. I feel far safer with that close than I would with guns lying around.
If swung propperly and hit correctly I can easily down someone in one hit. So why do I need a gun for home protection?
Gun owner who keeps his guns in a safe here! Let me run you down the list, OP.
1. Keep your safe in an easily accessible area.
2. Keep your key in a hidden place near the safe. Always know exactly where that is.
3. Practice a few times. If you can't get from any point in your house to having your gun safe open in about a minute or less, you need to move your gunsafe/key.
Having you firearms out in the open is not the answer. People want to steal your guns, so lock them up!
