    Wait a minute, I just realized I couldnt vote in this because as a single parent I sleep in the middle of the king sized bed and I have guns on both sides. How do I vote?

    I really need to get one of those. I used to keep my .380 under the mattress but after my daughter was born, I moved it to a more secure location but not very easy access.

    Dogs are a great alarm system. Good thing my dog, while being a huge baby, looks all mean and tough. Plus I saw somewhere that according to statistics, houses with dogs are much less likely to be robbed.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    we have a Mossberg Military shotgun in the closet behind our bedroom-since my kid is 16 and a competitive shooter it is no longer locked
    I have a hand forged Katana within two steps of my bedroom as well

    My son's room upstairs has a gun safe and in it is a 20 g Mossberg semi auto "tactical shotgun" and a Colt M4 carbine

    I just have this image of a grown man cuddling in bed with his guns. Certainly an unusual menage a trois, right?

    Now now, lady, I never said the guns were in my bed, I just said they were beside the bed...

    well we have two dogs and an alarm. The older dog is worthless now since he is deaf but the 7 year old barks like crazy if anyone even drives up the driveway.

    and if things get real ugly, I have another M4 in an easy access safe with 30 rounds of quad 556 (hp, AP, tracer, and FMJ) and a Gen 3+ NVD on it

    Non firearm weapons suggestion

    Knives are for small fast people
    clubs are for big strong people

    a small woman with a baseball bat isn't all that effective

    Yah. If a stranger talked puppy talk to my big dog he would maybe love him to death...but he puts out plenty of advance warning as soon as he knows people are there. I really doubt we have much to worry about where we are at. Its a fairly well off area. Plus...the dog already has a bit of a reputation. After about two weeks of living there one of the neighborhood teens thought it would a good idea to cut across the back acre. The dog went tear assin off after him and the kid started running. To the dog...that means game on and the dog caught him and grabbed him. Cept...the dog doesnt have hands...he only has teeth. SO...he grabbed him with his teeth. Right on the ass. We ended up paying for doctor bills and a 6 foot high fence around the property...but the reputation alone has far surpassed the benefit of any alarm system we could install.

    We keep pepper foam canisters available. I dont want my wife wrestling with anyone with either a knife or a club.
