Well, I sleep with my guns cocked and loaded, one in each hand and one on each side of my head. Every single light in the house is on, my stereo blasts that crazy heavy metal stuff (so people think that I am not only home, but awake), I also glue my fingers to the triggers and I tape my eyelids open...that way I will always be ready for something!!
Thanks man! I liked the part about the claymore mines best. I used to do that a while back, but had to get rid of them. One night I got drunk, and forgot about the mines under the carpet, and blew both of my damn legs off.

So you guys think that some psycho BG ,armed, high on drugs and alcohol, is going to be terrified at the sound of a shotgun being racked ????? One friend who blew away an armed BG couldn't understand why the BG did not respond to commands to drop the gun !! Of course not ,the BG had three drugs and very high levels of alcohol in his system .

Great point, that is the EXACT reason why I don't give the BG a chance (or time) to hear a racking noise, a verbal is all you will get from me.

I'd go so far as to say total stealth until the bg knows you are there. At that point you go dynamic, yell at him, tell him you have a gun and then wake up the rest of the swat team and clear your house. "Clear on the left, dad" "We're clear on the right"... until you can finally call the all clear and everyone just goes back to bed.
Just doing the best I can.

I remember reading a story years ago in one of Mas Ayoob's columns. A guy and his wife were found in bed dead, skull shot by an intruder; the guy had in his hands a 1911 with a failure to feed jam.

It only takes once...

If someone were to come in my house and had real good ears they might hear the "snick" of the safety on my 870, but if they hear it rack it's because I missed.
