He is of course a threat, but until and unless he actually decides to cause mayhem, I would not want to consider him a target,
You, of course, are free to make that assessment. I consider someone who has already broken in
my home as an immediate
dangerous threat. He/they could be after my TV, or
my Wife or Granddaughter, or one of my Sons. I am not gonna discuss his intentions with him/them.
Outside my home, I will try and avoid a confrontation if at all possible, Inside
, no such "benefit of doubt" exists.
Cover, concealment, moving, active...several contradictions there.
Not contradictions, Options
. I can use them all
to My advantage, especially inside my home. I know the layout, the BG(s) likely won't. (If they are intimate enough to know the layout, they also likely know they have entered a very "gun friendly" environment as well, that makes them even more dangerous in my mind)
Can you cite any recognized experts who recommend anything other than a saferoom strategy for home defense?
I cited Dwight55
. A combat veteran, and a veteran LEO. I think either qualify as "experts" in the areas of defense and (equally important) offense. Are they "recognized"? I have no idea if either has been published in an authentic article or book But
, They have both survived more dangerous situations than the average Joe, and can offer "first hand" advice, I personally hold that in equally high regard.
Also, you keep using the word "saferoom" There is a huge difference in a Saferoom
and an ordinary Bedroom
like the ones found in the average stick house, consult your experts on this subject.
