    I just posted a new video (slideshow) on youtube titled "HOME DEFENSE KIT".

    I am putting this out there in the hopes that someone may have a visual reference for putting together a good, serviceable kit for basic home defense. This is very basic in nature on purpose so I can possibly avoid confusing someone that may be new to this kind of subject.

    Nice. Good info for the huge influx of people wanting to be more personal protection oriented.

    Kinda silent though.:rolleyes:

    Nice job Sgt, this guy might have one uped you [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3mTLaopKKiQ&NR=1]YouTube - Home Defense Tool Kit - Mark "Six" James[/ame]

    Another another add not mentioned is a spare remote for your car, hit the alarm button and wake the neighbors. I believe the best defense is a good offense. Motions activated lights, security system including video monitor and record, big dogs. Make your home less of a target and the bad guy will go for an easier target.

    That's ok. It's not a contest...lol. :)

    I'm trying to find something decent as far as a little tune to put with it so it's not so silent. :rolleyes:

    I'm trying to look for an actual video camera so I can make some real youtube vids to put up, but my funds are limited.

    A series of questions:

    1.) Why a knife?
    a.) Why a folding knife?

    2.) Why no long gun?

    3.) Why no first aid equipment?

    Remember, this is just a basic example of a kit. It doesn't matter what knife it is, and I didn't include tons of other things, like rifles / shotguns, first aid kits, pepper sprays, dogs, alarms, locks, and all the other tools that can be used.

    I'm just trying to give someone a starting point. They can adapt from there. I don't want to risk confusing anybody or creating an unneeded debate over the details (i.e. folding knife over fixed blade, etc...).

    I will say that the reason I chose to use a pistol as an example over a longarm, is the simple fact that you can move easier with a pistol with less chance of the weapon being taken from you (that is, if you need to move. It's better to stay in one place if possible).

    Good Questions?

    1.) Why a knife?
    a.) Why a folding knife?

    2.) Why no long gun?

    3.) Why no first aid equipment?


    I believe you have some very valid questions?:confused:

    Along with that self defense training in a real life situation? There are many individuals that have never experienced a real life invasion and tactics? :mad:

    Not to mention the after-math:( Maybe I'm wrong (NOT!), but I believe the whole package should be apart of a self-defense program(what is real?).
    And a pump shotgun is better for a novice in home protection? Unless you are an experienced pistol shooter? :rolleyes:JMO

    They are valid questions, and those questions can be discussed and debated at length.

    I will say again, that what I posted is NOT the definitive kit to have. It is just an example to help someone that may have a question, or may need a visual aid to get them started.

    We could go a million different directions with the many tools / firearms / weapons that can be used for home defense.

    The main thing is what works for one will not work for another. An example is a long gun will not work for me in defending my home. There is too many angles, and alot of cramped spaces that would limit my effectiveness with a rifle/shotgun. With that said, there are people out there that will be better served with a longarm versus a pistol.

    I would rather not go into the debate over which shotgun, or pistol is better, because it can go both ways. You may say that a pump action shotgun is great for a novice, but I disagree. I have seen many novices try to correctly work a pump action shotgun and fail (and that was under no-stress range situations). I tend to go with Clint Smith's philosophy about the simple, easy to use revolver. If it is kept loaded, the revolver is a simple "point and click" interface.

    I don't want to confuse the beginner out there with meaningless debate that will never be resolved over the internet. I just want to give an idea of something that may work, and it if sparks more idea from the person watching, then great.

    Well done Sgt. So many people have no kit at all. K.I.S.S. for beginners.

    It looks like a good basic kit for a beginner. All the bells & whistles can come as the novice learns more.

    Quoted For Truth - There is nothing wrong with that presentation for a beginner.

    Anyone can sit back and pick something apart. How about you put something up and make an effort to help instead of critize??

    A good aspect of putting together something simple like this is its not intimidating. I've seen some lists, including here, that have a LOT of items, that will end up costing a LOT of money. That can be intimidating for someone looking to get into personal defense/survival. They might just forget about it all together or procrastinate until its too late.
    This is a great starter list!
