assuming the criminal didnt takeit from her and use it on her family. thats a case by case "what-if" scenerio. i would go for a small simple firearm with a clip. something easily concealable under the cover about waist high near your good arm. that way you arm it raise it up slightly and just shoot through the blanket with the criminal none the wiser until its too late. too big and too much effort takes too much time and draws too much attention. in my humble opinion.

Thank you, Annie Oakley. FYI: There are numerous semi-automatics chambered for the cartridges I mentioned available in what is called sub-compact configuration. They are light weight with short (usually 3") barrels and 7-10 round magazine capacity. Beretta PX4, Kimber UltraCarry II to name a couple. The Beretta can be had for around $ 500 whereas the Kimber will set you back in the neighborhood of a grand.

Hell yea, point shooting from under the covers, thats a winning strategy in a gun battle, or a fight for your life. Laying on your back in a static position, instead of being on your feet where you can move and use the bed or other furniture for concealment/cover.

BTW, what happens when the blanket keeps the spent cartridge from ejecting fully from the gun and then it fails to load the second round because it is all jammed up. Wait, you have no idea what I am talking about do you?

Didn't Linus have a blanket ? I doubt if tanftx has ever owned a firearm.

i was merely offering a what if scenerio where you are half asleep and you just dont have the time or mental awakeness to jump up all rambo and such. that assumes a best case scenerio of the criminal waiting patiently while you wake up, become alert, stand up and get the weapon, load it and point it all rambo like. that would be great if they were that considerate to wait and all but most people do not always spring up from sleep so fully alert.

State of the art home security system, plus I am a light sleeper. Kimber .45 in bedside table in 7+1 mode. All I have to do is drop the safety and pop a cap on him. More like 3 or 4. 185 gr. Golden Saber +P. Good night, Irene. Hate to think of haaving to have ARS in to clean that mess up.

If you have good doors with deadbolts installed and don't leave them or windows unlocked, even without an alarm system you should have ample warning when someone is trying to break into your home.

You don't have to do any "rambo" moves, to simply get the gun out from its secure storage and put yourself in a position to be ready for the intruder at a choke point. Whether that choke point is at the door they are trying to come in, or another doorway, or hallway entrance, you can be ready for them.

If you have crappy doors and locks, you may not have time, but you can certainly do yourself a favor by making preparations in advance.

A good dog doesn't hurt either, nor do motion sensor lights on the perimeter of the home.

It all boils down to layers of preparedness. Dog, motion lights, alarm, video survellance, and firearms make for a good start.

Totally on board with layer concept. The only thing that I don't have on the list is the dog. Have dusk to dawn LEDs that use tiny amount of electricity. I used to be away for extended periods on business and installed measures to protect the wife. Hope others take your advice.

Backyard dog prolly keeps you awake some nights Tom, when a cat, possum or coon wanders under the fence. Indoor dog sleeps down at the foot of the bed and can hear when you, Tom get up to take a leak at 2AM and lets everyone inside know. Backyard dog weighs 100+ and sounds like he'll eat somebody's arse off. Hence the neighbors behind me pretty well stay out of their backyards.

If they get past those two AND the state of the art alarm, there is a 1911 in the bedside table that will certainly finish the job.

I can attest to the fact that Texan2455 lives in a nice middle class neighborhood as we live within a couple blocks of each other; but he, as am I, is just employing common sense household security measures. In addition to our individual efforts there is an active neighborhood watch program.
