I've been telling her that it needs to be within arms reach at all times!! Bathroom, bedroom, kitchen, etc.... If you're there, it needs to be near you. Am I too paranoid, or do you agree??
I see it this way.
For when you're home.
You have smoke detectors in strategically placed locations?
You have the proper fire extinguishers in strategically placed locations?
You have a jack and a spare in all of your vehicles?
Do I have a weapon in strategically placed locations in every room?
I refuse to be a cooperative victim.
When we are not home.
If someone makes it through helldog, they might find SOME, but no one will find it all. The wife and I also run drills with our SOP if someone is in the house when we come home.
In todays society alot of the 'home invasions' are done by the homeowners own damn drug addict kids.
A lethal booby trap is a prison sentence but a pepper spray fogger system is legal and effective. You just need to make sure the dog is not in the house at the time.
I know of a case firsthand where the guys' daughter was sneaking in and stealing him blind. He was wondering why the dog wasn't attacking the culprits so we set up cameras.
SHO'NUFF little ghetto mouth negro lover is in there with her yo boys rifling through the place, eating his food and having sex in his bed.
Anyone who calls another man paranoid is only revealing his narrow minded stupidity.
