In an urban setup what is your plan for HD?
At night I keep M4A1 with 10 magazines and a Glock21.

Whats is your setup? How long can you draw out a gun fight?

Only ONE magazine for the Glock?

Holy crap you're not prepared!

:rolleyes:


Nightstand has a .38/.357 revolver with two extra speed loaders.

In the closet is my S&W 3000 riot gun.

5 rounds of Sellier & Belliot 12 pellet 00 buckshot in the butt cuff and 4 rounds of Remington No 4. buckshot in the magazine.

If that doesn't work, I've also got my AR-15 M2 configuration in there.

How long can you draw out a gun fight?
For the rest of my life<G>! Can't think of a home defense scenario in this day and time, however, that can't be solves with whatever handgun I use for a night gun (usually a Glock 17).

I live in the sub-urbs! I guess I'm ok :p

I keep my carry gun in a quick access safe in my bedroom, along with 2 extra mags. No need for anything else to make me feel safe. How long could I prolong a fight? As long as it takes me to get away or end it. Lets just hope 18 rounds is enough.

Actually, there is another pistol in there at the moment, too. My main safe is getting full :(

But, at least that far North on the GSP you could get WCBS, probably the best radio station this nation has ever had.

I just brought home a SxS coach gun in 12 Ga. So my first line of urban home defense is likely going to be two barrels of 00 buck. If that fails, I have my CCW piece.

I can't see much point to having an AR-15 with ten magazines ready to go, but YMMV.

Plasma rifle by the bed, fusion bombs set up in the hallway :p On the nightstand is a springfield XD40-4" with 10 Hornady XTP 180gr bullets loaded to full power. Spare clip close to it. Handheld flashlight on the nightstand as well as my cellphone to call the calvalry if the situation permits. Everything else is in the safe. Although I will start keeping my Sig 556 in the room at night. Never know when those zombies are lurking around the corner :D

For a while after Katrina we had to sleep with the doors open because of the extreme heat. My 7 month pregnant wife, our 18 month old son and I all slept in the same room with a box fan on low plugged into an inverter in my truck. I slept with a 9mm and a flashlight beside me. One night I heard a noise and stood up by the bed in complete darkness. A deafening exposion lit up the room for an instant. I knocked the gun and the light under the bed and it took me at least 30 seconds to find them. By the time I found them I was so rattled I doubt I could've hit a barn wall from inside the barn. I sheepishly sat by the door for a long while. I finally realized the boom was either a shot charge on a telephone line or a transformer. Either of them exploding at this point was odd since all the lines were down in the entire region.

Whoa - that sounds like a serious neighborhood you live in.

All I need where I live is 3 pounds of C4 duct taped to the underside of my mattress, rigged to a detonator that I hold in my hand while I sleep.

Needless to say, I'm a very still sleeper.

I only have my carry gun accessible at night. I don’t even keep a flashlight nearby. When I wake up my eyes are adjusted to the dark and I can see pretty well. If a bad guy did happen to choose my house, I don’t want to advertise my location with a beam of light.

Reading some of the responses I sometimes wonder is antis join this site, then make outlandish post about packing huge amounts of firepower just to make gun owners look nuts. I’m not sure where PK is, but it sounds like a very scary place.

I live in Pakistan. That is why I keep 10 Mag and M4A1 in my bedroom. Not that I will need to fight off an assualt, but in case if I want to travel outside city urgently. For that matter it is ready with a license and permit to carry it.

Glock 21 is really what I keep bedside just in case. No extra mags. They are in a hoslter.

Large dog next to the bed. Pistol in the nightstand drawer. Fighting knife (Randall) next to it. Tomahawk behind the headboard (don't laugh, I'm accurate to five yards with it). I live in a rural area and don't lock my doors, so anything beyond the armament listed above would be not only unnecessary,
but probably flat-out paranoid.

February 27, 2009, 08:40 AM
Well..... first off, I have so frikken many kids in and out of here all day and night I don't think anyone would ever target my house. :o Ya just never know when there's gonna be 15 cars in the drive and folks everywhere! Alarm signs in yard and by doorways, and a sign at the garage doorway letting them know that Lizzy is inside. ;) I have another sign (not yet put up) that I was planning on putting by my shop on other end of property that states "If you can read this.... You are in range".

But.... first line is my little doggie. Lizzy... a petite 120lb Rottweiler. She actually has her own backup named Bella (prolly 13 pound MaltiPoo). :D

I have within arms reach at night a lockbox where I rotate various pistols through, although most nights when I undress I put my carry on the nightstand anyway. Inside my closet is an 870 ready as well. In my office on the backside of the house I have a stash where I keep one as well... usually that is my 642.

I don't anticipate a herd of bad guys and believe that initial contact would send them away. My heart goes out to folks that live in countries/areas where the need requires more drastic preperation. Everyone should be able to feel secure and safe in their homes. Godspeed to you guys!

And for those of us NOT in situations like that.... myself included.... be thankful and don't take it for granted.

I keep a 12 ga Rem. 870 next to my bed with one in the chamber, four in the mag and another five on the buttstock. It goes back into the safe when I wake up (the safe is kept unlocked for quick access unless I leave the house). That's about it.

Then again, I don't exactly live in the 'hood. I'm in a small town next to a college campus. The likelihood of someone breaking into my apartment in broad daylight while I'm home is negligible. Partly because of our low crime rate, partly because there is almost always people out and about (usually college students going to/from classes), and partly because this is a small town and damn near everyone is armed.

Hell, last night about 3:00 AM I heard someone trying to get in through the downstairs apartment's window. I pondered calling the cops, but decided to see if I could ID the people trying to break in first. Turns out the downstairs neighbors had locked themselves out accidentally. :rolleyes:

That was the most excitement I've had in this apartment complex since I moved in four years ago.

If you live in a high density, heterogeneous situation, you need an escape and evasion plan more than you need firepower.

I was in Buenos Aires on 26 March 1976. I have had the unfortunate occasion to witness the Liberty City Riot and the Rodney King Riot up close. I can assure you, if you start shooting during an urban disturbance, you will bring unwanted attention to yourself. You are much better off keeping a low profile and getting the heck out of there. You want something concealable but big enough that if you are confronted by people wishing you harm, it will put enough fear in them to let you pass.

And you need to realize that it is just not miscreants you need to worry about. The local authorities don't know you or your intentions. They just know if you start slinging lead, you are part of the problem, not part of the solution. The same perception will be shared by anyone in the general vicinity who is not aware of your specific preparations.

In the urban environment, discretion is the better part of valor.

I keep two or three spare mags in certain key spots covering any exit routes I may have to take to GET AWAY if things got hairy. I have an AK-47 as my "final" go-to weapon should I ever find myself in that 1% situation, having exhausted all other firepower.

My wife knows the drill and it involves a two phones, Glock 19 primary, .357 (secondary), and cover.

I also had a security box added to my bedroom so I can monitor ALL breached entry points and movements throughout all zones, assuming I would ever have the luxury of time.

How long can you draw out a gun fight?

Depends on where the BG is. From my bedroom, quite a while. From outside the living room...quite a while longer.

The bedroom usually has the wifes Taurus 24/7 .40, my Walther PPS .40, a Ruger SBH .44, Ruger P89, a couple shotguns in the closet, and they wifes and my DMS's with 4 mags. I don't keep all those pistols in the bedroom for that reason, just no safe to store them in.

I do agree that extra mags are a good thing. Although you if you need up to 10 it might be better to invest in a guided missile system. :)

Been there, done that. Everything was fine until one of the neighbor kids (with a deputy father and detective mother) hooked up with a crew (consisting of individuals his mother busted) and went on a robbery spree.

That's when Plan B became Plan A.

Why? You can't warn them some other way and not waste a round?
4 Rubber Cuff
Also why? Do you see some advantage to keeping 4 bad guys around for later?

Holy cow! I know what you do for a living so I presume you mean Robbery and not Burglary (Home Invasion or robbing folks in the driveways?). Hope all is well down there.

Well, just goes to show, not safe anywhere. That's why I have a Plan B.:D

Because on TV it looks so easy to cuff someone that they want to try it themselves?

Forget the fact it sometimes takes 2, 3, and 4 officers to cuff someone that REALLY doesn't want to be cuffed.

It started with an entry into a home through an unlocked door (not encountering the home owner, fortunately), escalated with 32 vehicles hit in one night, and topped off with an attempted break in when the home owner was present. Everything's been quiet for a bit, as the suspect in the break in matched the deputy's son perfectly. I guess that after telling 911 to cancel the call as it was no big deal, the deputy had a chat with his son (who also "happened" to have "discovered" some of the property "discarded" nearby). :rolleyes:

Things are only going to get worse, as there was also an unrelated incident with a guy getting into the backyard where some kids were playing and approaching them.

Fortunately, we've adopted a furry son who happens to be the perfect alarm system. A gnat breaking wind at 100 meters will wake him from a deep sleep. If the gnat moves onto his property (i.e. anything within range), he alerts. If the pooch had opposable thumbs and access to firearms, half the neighbors would be dead already.

If you mean by urban defense the armed resistance to multiple bad guys in waves, my plan would be to retreat. That scenario is a losing proposition. I made a wise choice to get out of New Orleans about 25 years ago.

Urban defense is sort of like solo house clearing, many layouts you have to expose yourself to an uncleared area. Sometimes you just can't do it right.
