Yeah, that story brings up a good point. How soundly do you sleep? Myself, I tend not to sleep very soundly, I would awaken (I'd like to think), well before someone got to my bedroom. If they DID get to your bedroom, then yeah, you'd definitely be better off to sleep through it. I know people who would sleep through a marching band filing through their bedroom playing the Star Spangled Banner.

Comment: The Captain may THINK his balls are bigger than they are, but that robber HAS big balls for sure!

Yeap. I sleep like a rock and if a burgler was to actually get into my house while I was sleeping, I most likely wouldn't hear a thing let alone wake up. However, my snoring and monumental nocternal flatulence, I have been told, would scare the crap out of most intruders.

Default Go to home defense guns

Serbu Super Shorty 12 ga with tac rail and Streamlight TLR-21

My home is protected by an industrial strength professionally monitored alarm system with Video surveillance cameras inside and outside that continually record, broken glass sensors, and every Access door and window is hard wired as are my safe and garage.
Early warning, in my opinion, is still your best defense

Whatever happens to be on the night stand. It's like owning more than one watch. Some days it's a Casio day, so I use a Ruger P85. Some days it's a Fossil day, so I use an XD45.

Taurus PT-145 in bed with me, Mossberg 500 pump w/18.5" bbl next to the bed. No, the PT-145 doesn't have any hair around the muzzle.

But also doesnt the fact that he was a captain mean he thinks his balls are bigger than they really are?

Semper Fi
You are correct on that one!
He did a lot of big talking!

There's nothing like bringing an unloaded weapon to a confrontation with a criminal to show that you really have no idea what you're doing. I don't care what uniform you wear, who you work for, or where you've been- taking an unloaded gun to a gunfight is highly inadvisable.

If you want a club, you might as well invest in a baseball bat. It was designed as a club, has excellent ergonomics, and is easy to replace if you break it. If your firearm isn't loaded you have a really cool looking, poorly designed, way-overpriced club.

Call me crazy, but my Glock, AR-15, and 870 are all loaded. If I can make it to the safe, I can take my pick between the AR and 870. If I can't, I carry a loaded Glock 17 with me. The only potential sound someone breaking in will hear is the pistol clearing my holster, if they can hear anything at all over the sound of the dog barking.

VP Biden may think having his wife discharge their family double barrel into the air, leaving her with a club, is a good idea. I guess we're from different schools of thought on this issue. The school I learned from recommended taking a reliable, loaded weapon to a confrontation with a criminal with as much ammo as you can easily carry. I can't say I, or anyone else for that matter, understand his thought process but I think he may have been absent the day they taught gunfighting at gunfighting school.

If you want to:
1. Give up your element of surprise (the most important asset you have with intruders).
2. Tell the bandit(s) how you are armed.
3. Let them know your exact location.
More of the MYTH about the shotgun!
