How To Survive A Home Invasion - 4 Tips

4 Tips To Survive A Home Invasion

Home invasions don't just happen in "high crime" neighborhoods!

They happen EVERYWHERE (even in rural areas where home invaders 
know that there's no one around to hear your screams).

So let's dig into some REAL "tactical strategies" to help you get 
better prepared, shall we?

Imagine this scenario...

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

You're sitting at home watching reruns of 'The Simpsons' 
(remember the one where Homer started his own religio... oh 
nevermind) and there's a knock at your front door.

"Who's there?"

"Hello, my daughter is selling girl scout cookies to raise money 
for military veterans and we'd like to show you her selection."

Being the real "patriot" you are, you're tempted to open the door 
to "do your part"...

...but you're not stupid either!

You look out and notice that you don't see any little girl, but 
you DO notice one man standing on your porch you catch a glimpse 
of another one running to your back door for a sneak attack from 
the rear.

What do you reach for?

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Your .45?


Claymore mine?

All are handy little weapons in the fight you recognize is about 
to happen, but there's one weapon that you'd better have at the 
ready now that's "go time"!

It's your BRAIN!

A fire fight is a thinking man's game (and woman's ;-).

If you ARE a "gun owner" (kudos!) then your first instinct may be 
to start blasting away.

Start with the front door lowlife and work your way onto the next 
vermin, right?

But a home invasion requires tactical thinking BEYOND just the 
point and shoot reaction many gun owners have instilled in 
themselves from typical range training.

So let's break it down a little bit further and really tap into 
your cranium...

Your home invasion battle plan:

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

First, you don't know what these guys are going to do or even how 
many of them there are.

Being the smart "thinking shooter" that you are, you know...

Your living room is NOT the best defensive position!  Too many 
entries and exits and it's easy to shoot through walls so you're 
more likely to get shot

You know you have an attacker at the front and at the back and in 
your adrenalized state, your peripheral vision goes to hell in a 

You have family in different areas of the house and no time to take 
a firing position AND coral them to safety.

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

So what do you do?

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

1. You need a "code word" for your family so that they all know 
how to spring into action.

   Forget the Spec Ops secret code. "ESCAPE" works much better 
   than "RED WOLF". the point.

2. Have a "safe room" set up in your house where everyone can 
retreat to at the same time.

   It needs to be stocked with several items to be prepared for 
   surviving the upcoming fight.

   The list isn't all that long, but it's longer than what can be 
   listed here (more on that in a minute).

   But you KNOW you need to have a phone to call law enforcement, 
   right? Use it!

3. DON'T leave your safe room!

   Assuming you have those you love with you, don't be one of the 
   idiots who puts on his cape and decides to go take the fight 
   to the guys invading your home.

4. Create a "fatal funnel"!  

   Hunker down in a corner to the opposite side of the opening of 
   the door so you have maximum time to make a shooting decision 
   and are the last thing the home invaders see when busting in.

   You have the advantage in this case because they have to 
   assess the room before making a move (is anyone in the room; 
   where are they; recover; reorganize; act)

   You just have to decide whether to shoot or not and you 
   already know that either it's a bad guy coming for you or the 
   police coming to rescue you.(hint: don't shoot the police)

   Stay in place until the police arrive, even if you think the 
   threat is gone.

But what if...

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

  *  You have a loved one taken hostage?

  *  You were taken by surprise and handcuffed to a railing?

  *  You have to leave the safe room to rescue a family member?

  *  You can't get to your firearm (or don't own one)?

  *  The police weren't notified and no one knows you're being
