SFCSMITH(RET), that is a great location! They could have a concrete saw and be there for a very long while. That's the kind of setup I'm looking for. It's not going to keep a pro or a determined person with time out, but it will make most people say it's not worth it.
The worse the economy gets the more desperate people will become. Sadly, I think the time will come when my house is broken into. If not before before it hits the fan definitely after. I'd feel better knowing I've protected them as best as possible.
Once I get the gun safe squared away I'm going to work on securing a lower level bedroom where I can keep my food storage for the same reason.
