    Other than that, you've got nothing.

    If I fire in the dark from the bed, the other two guys are going to light us up from seeing my flash point.

    So I'm a coward because I don't want to be killed next to my now dead wife? That's a brilliant plan you've got there.
    How pathetic. My bedroom is also a safe room. I have a plan and actual cover (not just concealment) in that room. If I had a wife to protect, I'd sure as HELL have at least some plan to protect her.

    And btw, silencers also suppress some muzzle flash and are legal in alot of states....are they legal in TX? Do you know?

    There is nothing cowardly about not being a gun blazing idiot, as you and your wife would be dead.

    Dig? Idiot!
    What, you assume they'll let you live after they rape her?

    Just as likely shoot you both and burn the house down.

    Me, I'd rather fight for my life than sit and wait to 'see what they'll do to me.'

    Your comparing apples and oranges I have lived in both the US and the UK and socially they are very different. The chances of an armed group invading my home in the UK are slim to none and our homicide rate is very low in comparison to the US. We still have our fair share of violent crime but the large majority of it does not involve firearms and its unlikely any potential robber would carry such a weapon.

    If the person attacking me has a gun, then they have already introduced it to the equation. In my home, on my turf, I have a plan and I have the advantage.

    Should I just let them kill me? Or is that too messy for you?

    Yes but they can still subdue you with a bat or large wrench (a weapon of choice, I've read). So they can beat you all into submission and then rape your wife or daughters.

    What are your plans...with no firearms, fine...to prevent the devastation of your family?

    I have no objection to people deciding that firearms are 'not for them.' What I cannot comprehend is that people do not prepare and plan for protecting themselves, period. You dont need necessarily need a gun for that, at least not where you are I guess.

    I have a nice cricket bat under my bed just in case not that I foresee myself ever using it however it is there all the same.

    p.s you need to chill out a little and enjoy life. You sound very paranoid.

    Yeah, d0gbreath' s stated plan for a home invasion is to offer up his wife's ass as appeasement because quote "a raped wife isn't a big deal". He then counts on these armed rapists wanting to leave witnesses.

    The things cowards say.

Your already outnumbered, outgunned and you have to worry about your familys safety as well as your own. A gun will only take you so far as countless soldiers have learned over the years.
    What measures are those?

    Not at all...how hard do you think it is to plan ahead a bit?

    I am alone on a rural property....no cops are coming anytime soon. I have dogs and locks and lights...and guns. I sleep just fine at nite. I did, here, before I owned a single firearm.

    I just think about how stupid I'd feel if someone broke in and I had no means to stop them and protect myself once they were inside.

    I have twice responded to screams on the property next door. The teenage daughter is deaf. I had to jump in my car and go over (didnt have to but that is what neighbors do). Both times I considered taking my gun...and I took it because...just how stupid would I feel going over there and being overcome by whatever threat was there, as unlikely as it seemed? When I knew I 'could have' had my gun? So then why not take it?

    Yeah, I will say it....we do not need guns with magazines that can hold enough rounds to kill a dozen people in one fell swoop.
    Huh. And just how many bullets do people need to defend themselves against multiple attackers?
