    Not a brand new video, but definitely interesting to watch. Guy had security cameras outside his home, captured an attempted home invasion on tape. What's scary is how fast it happens. Four guys, two with guns in hand, jump from car and rush the house.
    :shocked:

    Owner drives them back with a splash of lead persuasion. He saw them on the camera before they got in, and was prepared.

    I don't have cameras, but I have weapons around the house, always a gun in easy reach. But this kind of attack, this quick? Very grateful I have my dogs, great early warning system.

    I could be absolutely wrong but I bet these 4 heavily armed men were running in on a known drug house. Druggies have cameras everywhere.


    But maybe it's a very well prepared normal guy who happened to be targeted by 4 heavily armed men at random.

    I'm leaning towards this. Not that it's impossible, but the old man doesn't strike me as a drug-runner. I could be wrong though.
    :dunno:

    Some guy told me the other day...I dont need to carry extra ammo on my shotgun and I dont need to worry about reloading my magazine tube in a home invasion because statistically you will never need more than just a couple rounds to stop a threat.

    This is proof that having extra ammo and being good at reloading your gun "IS" important. Hell, this is proof an AR15 is a good HD weapon.

    I have a dog that loves to bark at anything that hits the property, an AR by the bed, and 4 pistols at the foot of the bed.


    And I'm usually not too drunk to wake up!

    i got out of the city for many reasons, this is one of them.

    now i have 200 yards of driveway, a pack of hyperactively vocal dogs, and i can see the entrance to my property from a window where i currently sit, a window in my bedroom, and a window close to where i normally sit in the afternoon.

    yes i can still be got. but it's gonna cost the attackers dearly, and it aint gonna be for a lack of trying on my part.

    there are people out there that want your stuff more than you do so keep your neighbors aware, you chamber loaded, and 911 on speed dial.

    Prepare the best you can or as much as your wallet will allow, and hope for the best if **** goes south that's my opinion. you never know what you could be faced with regarding you own home or out in public.

    Personally I do the best with what I have in my daily life but don't go around in fear.

    Just remember, everybody that has cameras on their home is a drug dealer. :upeyes::upeyes::upeyes:

    Please, give me a break. There are those of us law abiding people that appreciate the value of good security cameras. Trust me, they do work to a home owners advantage and do land people in jail that violate the law.

    All while having nothing to do with drugs. :wavey:
