Knife for Home Defense! Not a good idea! As a last resort it is fine! I always carry one but my first line defense is a "GUN"!But one would be gambling with disaster to bring a knife to a gun fight! If the perpetrator had a knife you can probably rely on he is fairly skilled with using it!

I usually have a shotgun next to me at all times in the house. We had a peeper not too long ago and it really threatened my family. They were even scared to come home. If you are scared to live in your own house, that is wrong and it needs to be fixed. Next time the peeper is going to be peeping into a bore.

Guys let me correct this: THE KNIFE ISN'T MY PRIMARY HD WEAPON. IT IS A BACKUP. Some of you have failed to realize this Now you know.

Having a knife as a back up is a good idea, especially if you know how to use it.

A gun is great, when the attacker is at least a few yards away from you. What do you do if he's only a few inches away? What do you do if he grabs your gun? Thats where a knife comes in handy. When it comes to hand to hand combat, a knife is better than a gun since you don't have the time to aim, or really the distance to allow you to aim properly.

OK, even YOU need to explain things sometimes notdku...

What "blunt objects" would one stash around the house? I just keep picturing a bowling trophy in my bathroom and, frankly, the stuff in there already is hard enough to make excuses for!

I picture a few ammo cans packed with sand and rocks. As well as some dummy grenades. I have always wondered if people have you cornered, to pick a dummy grenade up and act like it is real. "Don't move or we all go up". I wonder if this will work. Just don't let them see the milled hole at the bottom.

The dummy grenade would hurt like a SOB if you chucked at him plus he might think its real lol
