Ok pretend that as you are reading this someone kicks in your door. For some reason your dogs/early alert system.ect.ect didnt warn you. What do you have around you to defend yourself. Your gun is useless if its upstairs and your downstairs when someone breaks in. Hopefully most of you always have your gun nearbye. This isnt an option for me unfortunantly so I keep a pellet gun pumped up 10 times and has a lead pellet followed by 2 zinc bb's in the chamber. Also I have a machete right next to me, a knife in my pocket and a knife in the vase by the door.
