Safes protect valuables for a number of reasons including home break-ins, fires etc. Safe’s do the job they are intended for but they can’t protect the individual and that’s obviously not what they’re for.

So when the question comes up: How long will your safe protect valuables when a home-invasion gang is holding a pistol to your two-year-old daughter’s head?

You never let it get to that point. I have an alarm system, a couple dogs and a couple guns by my bed. The dogs will let me know something is up so I will be, the alarm system let’s me know there’s someone breaking in and the laser spot lets those who broke in what I’ll be doing.

Stop copy catting us. LOL!!! If you don’t have a chihuahua get one. Alarm on steroids.

Seriously, we are and have been in anticipation mode for a year or more. We had a home invasion across the lake. 6 Amish with ski masks and shotguns. They held a family and their kids in terror and tried to drag the wife off with them when they fled. She resisted and they finally let go of her. By the time the cops got there they were gone. Bear in mind we never heard a thing nor did their next door neighbors who are friends of ours.

We sleep with Mr. Mossberg 500 on the floor and Mr. Springfiled Armory .40 XDM and Ms. Ruger P85 on the nightstands. Breaking into our house will be the single worst and last idea anybody ever had.
