Okay, so what is your plan when the shit hits the fan? Let me paint a picture for you with a story: It is late at night say around 2:30 am and you hear a loud crash. Three intruder’s have just come into your house with intention of maiming, murder, raping and stealing. They are hardened criminals and carrying weapons from guns to knives and or a baseball bat. What do you do? Did your training prepare you for this? Or are you shit out of luck!
Now, let me talk about what would likely happen at a house like mine. First off I have an alarm system and I proudly have signage about it. More than likely they go to the next house. However, if they are stupid and do come in they will first be met by a blaring disorienting alarm. Next in line is the big black wolf dog who more than likely will be standing at the top of the starts growling, barking and preparing to do what he does to anyone that wants to harm the pack. (you should see him when he is upset) When the alarm goes off I am up with a Glock 45 in my hand and at the top of the stairs on the high ground shooting downward. My wife is in a special room designed for this type of situation with her own gun. After I unload 14 bullets on these armed thugs it is time to meet Mr. AR or Mr. Shotgun. (yes they are that close to where I am) You see a handgun is just used to get to your long gun. If I eventually run out of ammo only then would I go hand to hand. Knowing how I shoot and the amount of ammunition I expect that won’t be needed but if it does I am prepared! I have trained for almost my whole life for it and like my wolf dog I will sell out for the pack.
Note: I did leave out a couple of surprise features of what would happen at my house….
So think long and hard about this scenario or another one where a thug tries to carjack you. What would you do? Has your training prepared you for this? If no then why not? If you are concerned about real world violence then learn skills to cope with it. If you are in Las Vegas I can help you get there. If you live somewhere else I certainly can point you in the right direction! Have a plan and be prepared!
