I also set up a safe area for the girlfriend. If anything were to go down she is to get her pistol and stay down at the side of the bed as I clear the house. That way I know where she is and if she stays low less chance of being hit by strays.

And get a dog!!!!!!!

Thanks guys. I always wanted to post something like this but I always held off thinking it might come across like I was a know it all. There's a lot of knowledge here and I'm glad I can offer something to the forum.

I see a lot of people have read this but there isn't a lot comments. Is there anything that someone would like to add, like Skull did or maybe someone has a question. This is the best place to ask, there is a lot of experience on this forum and I know I didn't cover all basis here.

In the Army we were told to close our sighting eye when we expected a flare. That way the night vision would be destroyed in the non sighting eye but preserved in the sighting eye

Darin, what types of things do you take into consideration when deciding what type of weapon and caliber to use solely for home protection, ie. the dedicated night stand gun.

Great advise. However I am a little weary about my last interaction with my police department last week. Nothing terrible or illegal. Where buried in snow here and the roads have been narrowed to basically one lane. Someone parked across the street blocking anyone from getting out or into my driveway. So to have a car moved you have to call the police. The officer had to call me and ask for directions to my house after he already had my address. That is not a heartwarming feeling after reading your post. Maybe they know where it is now.

Again, well written and good advise.

Well, if you are buried in snow and the street is down to one lane, I suppose the street address placard and or mail box is still in plain view and perfectly readable from a police car in the street.

Driving in extreme snow conditions is like flying with NVG's over the desert. You can easily lose your bearings.
