One good practice for advance warning - is a good watchdog, & sleeping behind a few locked doors. I have a DA/SA Sig pistol for immediate use, & a short carbine that is 6 seconds from ready - with both red dot optic & green laser, + 30 round magazine, + other options.

It depends what floor your on (we have 3). STI pistols on the first and second. Remington 870ís with #4 buck on the second and third. And a Sig MPX PCC that follows us from second to third wherever weíre spending the most time. Thereís also a moss reg shockwave in the garage.

We live in a pretty densely populated downtown neighborhood we we use guns and rounds with less likelihood of going through numerous walls. When Iím keeping a eye on the streets from a balcony I have a 5.56 or 6.8 for the extra distance.

Tactical Yorkie that lets nothing go by. Currently, 45.'s in every room w/ tactical ammo plus machine guns in each of 3 bedrooms. I was carrying a Cobra but went back to one of my Special Combats in a Crossbreed.

5.56 will go through far less than any of the options you mentioned especially after it leaves your house if you miss.

I have some beautiful .45’s from my SAA to various Govt. models but my HK P7M8 is what sits by my bed. I’m sold on its squeeze cocker, accuracy and primarily Its just a safer design, no manual safety needed, and I train with it.
One late night i got worried heard a noise, kids in bedrooms, dark, i was a dealer with a large, too large choice of weapons, thats what I grabbed, never changed after. If I was in a military situation I would be more interested in my Colt special combat govt 45 or perhaps my old Sig 220 in .45. I like bigger slugs🤠

My house gun is a Glock 17 w/124gr HST because that is what my wife shoots and shoots well. I'm retired so I'm usually home and I always have a Colt CCO 45 on my hip. At night I put a TLR-I on the Glock in the night stand and a J frame next to it.

At our old place I used to keep a CH .44 Special Bulldog in the knife drawer. No way to get to the bedroom if anyone was coming through the front or back door.

There is a Springfield Armory next to my bed.
Assuming I make it out of bed, the safe is standing right there too and inside is my Remington 870 with factory extended magazine, a side saddle and a selection of #4 Buck shot and slugs.
If the heathens are rioting in the street, there is the Savage Recon AR platform rifle.
My Colt's Government Model is in semi retirement. I shoot it whenever at the range with handguns but no longer use it for daily carry.
My wife has never gotten comfortable with seeing that hammer in the cocked and locked position.

The bedside table drawer yields a pair of 4" Smiths in .38special and many speed
loaders. I need no light inside the house. Under the bed is a short break
action 12ga w/ single ball LLA for bear response. During waking hours, a 1911
is always available, as is the 590. If it all goes South, a pair of AKs in 7.62 are
very close at hand. Various others have convenient places to be secured.
What am I afraid of? Nothing.

Usually a pistol belt with my series 70 and two spare mags. And a maglite ML50L, it's a 3-c LED with "tactical" features... one of them is a momentary on/off. If you wait more than 1/4 second between taps, it goes momentary on/off. If you tap quickly, it cycles through modes. Takes a little bit of practice to get used to it. I use it as a weapons light as taught by Jeff Cooper: Flashlight in left hand, pistol in right, right wrist over left wrist, the light ends up at 3 o'clock of the gun, and the flashlight wrist supports the gun wrist.

Usually the rifles sleep in the safe, but lately? THe M1 sleeps in the bedroom, a clip clipped to the front of the sling, and a loaded bando in the sock drawer next to the rifle. The rifle's more of a thing for when S *really* HTF, not for like say 2 guys invading the house. That rifle's there for when I hear artillery at 0230. When I see techincals riding around. That's why I keep the M1 out these days. It could happen.

Don't make me add a bayonet to this.. aw hell, I will just because.

No dogs, but I do have the place wired with alarms and glass break sensors. Even the garage. Doors and windows locked and bolted. Most my doors have passive deadbolts, too.

I do practice scenarios, and have a few spots selected, but honestly folks, drywall ain't gonna stop the bad guy's rounds from hitting me. I'll just have to hit first, and well. THe wailing of the alarm and the 600 lumen light may help with that.

Kinda back to the days of hanging a flintlock over the hearth, no?

but geez, with my tastes in old guns, my kit is taking on a decidedly WWII flavor.. the pistol belt's a M1936, the holster's military.. so's the ammo pouch.. so's the rifle, and its sling. OMG I've turned into a reenactor

At least all of it is made here. There's this place called atthefront.com, they make WWII gear in Kentucky with original type materials and fasteners. Got the belt and a fantastic case for the M1 from them. The sling I got from ammogarand, made here, dunno where, but well made (cotton web sling). I most emphatically do not want nylon chinesium anywhere near my war tools. I dont want tacticool. I want it to be made here, work, and last a lifetime. If I look like a WWII solider, so be it.

This is more for the disaster prep forum, but my next steps are to build a personal survival system.. tent, cot, heat, bug control, etc. That's gonna probably be all milsurp too... I remember ALICE, I hear MOLLE's much better. Maybe I can be persuaded to go nylon. But no chinesium!!!

Indoor shotgun

At one time in my law enforcement career, we had to do some security for a gang related death threat in a building that was otherwise occupied by people unrelated to the situation and we were not allowed to evacuate. In our experience, the only safe weapon. one that wouldn't penetrate two layers of sheet rock. was our shotguns loaded with number nine bird shot. In the confines of a medium sized room, the pattern of shot is confined to about the size of a fifty cent piece. Ask any emergency room personnel about short range small shot wounds and they will tell you that they are very lethal due to the tissue destruction. If you think of that kind of shotgun ammunition as a giant version of the old Glaser Safety rounds you can see that it isn't something you want to be shot with. I just mention this as a consideration in confined residential settings with the double ought possibly doing unintended damage to others.

Thats an Inforce weapon light. Does the job if needed.
