    I've been relying on a highly modified 338 Winchester self-loading Browning Auto Rifle with a custom 30 round magazine but I am uncomfortable with having only 30 rounds available without a reload.

    I'm thinking that I need a 7.62x51 rifle with a 90 round drum magazine for patrolling my hallway. I realize this is stepping down in caliber so I'm looking for some exploding bullets to make up the difference but I may have settle for something else due to legal issues with the bang-bang bullets. I also worry that my insurance may not pay if I burn my house down with the incendiaries I picked up at the last show.

    If I can find a load using a 220 grain bullet with tiny projecting knife blades that spin with the bullet and rip the target in half as they pass through at 4,000 FPS do you think this will be sufficient for home defense or should I pick up that 20mm cannon I've had my eye on?

    If fyou feel that's enough then more power to you, but I might tend to feel under gunned with that set up. I personally would get dual RPG launchers.

    Although just about as realistic as some of the other threads that have gone through here.

    if you don't have any pets i recommend setting up some claymore mines in the hallway before you fall asleep, just in case

    You need a BFG-9000. Anything else just won't cut it.

    Ok then I'll play, I have a 40mm grenade launcher at one end of the hallway with HE rounds, beside my bed is a M14 with a M203 and 5 HE grenades for it in case I need to "rally", And at the ebd of the hallway I got a M240 with 200 rounds in case the fight goes outside. Out side there is a minefield for 20 yards, and on the sidedoor there are bobby- trapped clamores. And I sleep with a 35lb tactical vest on with 1 .500 S&W revolvers with 5 extra rounds, 5 stuns grenades, and 5 HE grenades. :evil:

    By God, the only way to protect you and family is 4 Cambodian trip wires. The first at the main entrance and the rest at the back door, garage, and kitchen entrance. Protect your fridge and kids at all costs.

    Go with the 20mm Vulcan you had your eyes on. Be sure to use frangible bullets, since they may tend to over penetrate a little bit. Remember to always know what is behind your target.

    Something you might not have thought of, is flame throwers. they are not technically firearms (FIREarms) in the eyes of the ATF. So no paperwork or FFL transfers. They are also good on holidays when your wife is googling new methods for cooking turkeys.

    Why stop there?
    Enlist the neighbors as your personal defense squad! Rig the exterior with tiger pits and claymores...
    Then, don't forget the 155mm artillery support and napalm air strikes!
    After that, you can move in to secure the perimeter and get that last piece of fried chicken in the fridge.:)

    Would also be a good idea to surround the yard in an electric barbed wire 12 foot fence with a guard tower (sniper with 50bmg in it of course) and teach the kids to use mortar launchers as well.

    Your situation seems to preclude the need for just a mere rifle. While some ideas here are a bit "out-there", may I suggest the following.

    Except for a few safe spots known to just you and your family, install a switch that unlatches your flooring areas and drops anyone on it into a basement of hot oil.

    Side benefit;
    Not exactly best set-up for energy savings during the summer months, but just having it in place it should really help temper those winter heating bills.

    And besides, family pets can become rather boring after a while. Why not recycle?

    While I agree that those weapons are marginally satisfactory any competent defender of the home will employ 24/7 guards, armed with aforementioned weapons, and if possible these guards should be 100% loyal robots with titanium armor.

    I think you should meet up with Gecko45 and find out his secret techniques on duct taping rifle plates to more "difficult" portions of the body.

    Arm yourself with a 12 ga shotgun loaded with flashette(sp?) rounds. The shotgun must be black, have a short barrel and a long magazine, a flashlight, a lazer, a way to hold extra ammo on the gun itself and should be a pump action so that in makes a loud noise when a shell is loaded in the chamber. (I use an automatic shotgun and keep a shell in the chamber, I am not trying to scare anyone with noise.)

    Motes are good for keeping the black nights at bay, at the very least.

    Saxon, your fire power just isn't up to snuff. I think you need to do a serious re evaluation.

    I'd venture, your not going to show us pics of the Browning anti personnel rifle...

    are ya?
