Another reason to stay within grasp of your weapon.
Wow. This really drives home the point of Massad Ayoobs blog of only 2 days ago. Hot Lead Versus Cold Blood.
He says, "A gun you can’t reach in an emergency is useless."
I don't know if it's me noticing "home invasion" in the news more, or if there is an increasing rate of home invasions. I fear it is the latter in an economy that will likely get even worse.
Exactly. My wife used to think it a little strange that I always have a 1911 close by. I keep pointing out these kinds of incidents to her, and now she doesn't think twice about the pistol on the coffee table.
This is another good reason to make sure your windows have good lock or sticks in them and your exterior doors have long strong screws in the striker plate on the jam to help slow them down. You may have some extra time it takes them to get in so you can become armed and take action.
Just a thought.
I carry my M&P45 on me while at home and my wife has her Shield sitting right next to her.
I think the number of home invasions is up, and making the news. They are happening everywhere too, not just the low income, or high income, city or rural. It is all over the place.
I know since I recieved my M&P9 last week I have been to the range multiple times, have 350 rounds thru it and am now carrying full time, even sitting at home at my desk. I also keep the front shades set so I can see people approach when I am sitting there. Oldest son has been instructed on what to do home alone, or if there is loud noise in the house at night. All doors are locked everynight, no more blissfull ignorance living in the rural areas, family is to precious.
All driven by the increase in these invasions up here in Pierce county.
