    H&K USP45C, HydraShoks loaded, double action, safety on.

    If disaster strikes, then Colt AR-15 Tactical carbine, EOTech, flashlight, laser, 40 round mags.

    IZ 109 Saiga, 19 inch 12 guage automatic with pistol grip, folding stock, and 10 round mag of 00 buckshot. If you think the ratcheting of a pump shotgun is intimidating just listen to the noise pulling the bolt of that bad boy makes.

    Glock 17 w/ 124gr Golden Saber +P and an mag of the same(35 rounds at the ready). Surefire Z2 keeps it company. Other choices are within 10 feet if these don't get the job done.

    I have a S&W Model 65 in .357 right by the bed, a Mossberg 590, and my CCW piece o' the day on the night stand. My Point Blank vest is in my hawk bag at the foot of my bed with an Uncle Mike's Under Armor holster with a Taurus Millenium PT-145 on it. Actual first line of defense is my GSD, Rudy, and my two cats. :D

    Rudy is very possessive of me and my property and the cats, well, let's just say they can get cranky if you get them up out of their nice soft beds. ;)

    .

    I live in Tucson AZ at 345 19th Avenue. White house red trim. Usually a
    white Nissan pickup outside that's mine. Four steps up the front porch.
    Locks and doorknobs are Schlage F series. Two other points of entry, one
    around back and one on the side facing the garage. The garage is always
    unlocked, by the way. I have no pets. My firearms include a .357
    Smith which is kept in the sock drawer of my dresser, loaded. I have
    a number of hunting rifles in locked cases in the closet in my bedroom. My
    bedroom can be accessed from the front door by going straight back, past
    the kitchen, and taking a right turn.

    My name is Bill Swanson and I am a white male age 35. Single, no kids. I
    vote Republican normally, and I haven't committed any felonies. I have never
    served in the military. I work as a landscape designer at Ferris Landscapes
    in Tucson, and I've been there for 3 years. I have no history of mental
    illness and I am not currently on any medication. I have a CCW and I carry often.

    My hobbies include darts, gardening, and reloading.

    Tactical Remington 870 combat shotgun with 3 Hornady SST slugs and the rest Hornady TAP shells with five more on my shell holder on the stock.

    I have a loaded XD-40 with 3 glaser blue safety slugs and 7 federal hydra-shock hollow points. If need be I also have the Para Ordnance P14 filled with Extreme Shock anti-terrorist munitions in the closet.

    The 20 gauge I just keep for skeet shooting and snake control.

    I live in Los Angeles, its not pretty out here.

    Cell Phone

    Yes.

    Cell phone.

    What?

    You don't think I'm gonna clean up that body and blood by myself, do ya!?

    That's what the cell phone's for.

    I mean, you could just wait until the next morning and all that, but I think it's common courtesy to call the constabulary and EMT guys before things dry to the point where it's hard to clean and things start to smell.

    And then I call Merry Maids to do the rest. They have the tools for cleanups like that.

    That avoids excessive damage to my hardwood floors, area rugs, and other surfaces.

    After all, if you don't defend your investment in the home, the appraiser will stick it to you.

    That's proper home defense.

    "And then I call Merry Maids to do the rest."

    I'd send that bill to the perps family, or take them to small claims for it. Why should you have to pay for all that.

    Some folks I know and what they use.

    1. Lady has Osteo so bad, she stepped down one morning getting out of bed and broke her foot. Doctors orders, no driving, no heavy recoil.
    She has a faithful "mutt" she found at the 'dog pound' years ago, better locks, motion lights, alarm, ...and uses Marlin 60s , all she can use.

    2. Born without an arm on weak side below elbow, again we have a lady, with the home secure, a plain old dog that is very protective. She uses Revolvers, prefers Model 10s with standard pressure 158gr.
    She is quite good with a 1100 in .410 with slugs.

    3. Wheelchair bound gentleman, always carries CCW, and is still quite good with a 870 20 ga pump.
    He too beefed up home security, guns just part of the tools.
    His faithful dog got sick and died.
    He is considering another dog, just the pain still hurts from losing the one he had for so long.

    I also have a XD 45 ACP for upstairs use.

    Now that's a great idea. I would call that poetic justice to hit the perp's family with that while the're on camera saying, "He was always a good boy!"

    19th Ave?

    It's a stealth address.

    When they rename Grande Ave, it's gonna be called 19th Ave.

    Oh, rats, was I supposed to keep that a secret?

    1. "Organic Defense System" = Dog that barks at any little noise

    2. S&W 686 6" w/ 158 gr. HydraShocks about 2' from my head when sleeping
    3. 870 with buckshot in the closet, about 4' away
    4. couple nice knives behind the bed
    5. keep car remote next to me so I can hit the panic button, horn honking and lights flashing, good chance some would-be intruders will just take off, maybe not all, but it might buy me some time if they didn't run off to prepare
    6. cell phone next to the car remote
