What have you done to fortify the home for bugging in. I have been thinking about gettign some 3/4 ply when I see it on sale for lower level windows ect. Now I know its not going to stop rounds from coming in but it will block line of sight and they wont be able to kick the glass out and climb in.
What do you think would be best after I cut it to size for each window. I was thinking 3" deck screws, but if the power is out and my cordless is dead how an I gonna drive 100 3" screws by hand
Looks like good ole hammer and nails
I don't rally want to drill my window cases for a possible problem that may never arise, but I dont want to be caught with my pants down either.
What else have you done or what else are some good things to think about and plan for to fortify the castle.
ktm, if you have an 18 volt cordless drill and a car battery, you are not SOL. I have and old 18 volt drill that I keep in my truck that has not had a battery pack for the last 10 years, and it still gets use. Take a lighter plug kit and whatever length of wire you think you will need. Solder the negative cable to the negative terminal in the drill, repeat with the positive. Get an adapter that has the receptical plug on one end and battery clamps on the other end. plug the two together and hook up to a car battery, or plug it into the lighter plug\ power port in your car. It won't spin as fast, but it will still spin. I use mine when doing onsite car stereo installs and other drill and driver duties when out of reach of power sources (or when I forget the extension cords!
). I like the other members' sugestions on this as well, especially the means of securing the plywood from the inside. Great ideas guys!
