Anyway, if your backstop is your daughter's room, you should give some extremely serious thought to reconfiguring your fields of fire or changing your tactics. There's no way in hell I'd even think about launching rounds with my daughter directly behind the bad guy.
A "good chance"?!?!?!?
In all but the most brazen and well executed home invasion we should be able to eliminate the issue by stepping into the hallway (her room and bed it diagonal from ours).Anyway, if your backstop is your daughter's room, you should give some extremely serious thought to reconfiguring your fields of fire or changing your tactics.

ok a well tested response?A "good chance"?!?!?!?
Bottom line is yes given a better floor plan it would be non issue.
Remember the size of the dog doesnt matter if there is a big enough bite thats got his back..
If you view him as a (very!) portable alarm, that's fine. Good on him for saving you from the fire, by the way! I was mainly kidding - my own dog is a gentle Australian cattle dog. I have no interest in the fighting breeds.
But of course a bigger dog may slow down the intruder and give you more than four seconds to mount a defense. Then again, some people crate their fighting dogs if there's a fight brewing.
Getting back on topic, does anyone have an 18"-20" 870 barrel in 12 gauge they want to part with?
I grab my 9mm on the way to my 12 ga...
If 1 gun is good 2 is better...
I bought mine brand new through Midway for under $100. Mossburg brand 870 barrel. Blued, to match my gun, or flat if you want. Works great. Fits perfect.
Thanks, Jeff. I've had my eye on that very one, for when I redeploy back to the States. Always looking for a bargain, though!
I second the chihauhau (mine's 3.2 lbs of pure terror), but if that didn't work I guess I'd grab my Glock. That and my trusty Red Ryder 200 shot Air Rifle!
Id grab my Glock 19 9mm because i'm its reliable, and acurate. I beleive the first shot will be key in making sure I come out on top..
You also cant go wrong with the sinister sound of racking a 12 gauge shot gun..
Also I recommend that you prepare yourself in the event of a home invasion. I personally set my alarm to wake me up iin the middler of the night to trigger a "breakin drill." I go for the glock 19 (unloaded) and pretend he's walking around while i wait to ambush him.
I've got two mags ready with Corbon JHP rounds for the necessary stopping power.
Goggles that I'm selling on ebay as of right now:
It was tight. My roommate laughed at me when I came walking down the stairs but I had to stay warm somehow.
A little league football helmet with an open facemask should suffice, assuming I properly adjust the chinstrap. I actually have a funny story about a rat...not this past fall semester but the one before, I had just moved into my fraternity house for a year. We had the entire ceiling and floor ripped apart in the front hallway so there were tiles all over the place. I came downstairs around 2am and opened the door and there was this ginormous rat standing there. I swear the thing was damn near a foot long not including the tail. I actually thought it was a oppossum at first. I chased it into another room and called one of my brothers down and we couldn't find it. The very next night at 2am I went downstairs and there it was again, perched on a busted ceiling tile. I yelled at Scott and he grabbed this huge sword he had mounted on his wall and we went after it. I lifted every couch in that room several times and he'd swing under it but we never did find it. There were a few nooks and crannies in the room we chased it into, but honestly I don't know how it got through any of them. This thing was as big around as my neck.
Possibly you should lay off buying guns and contact an exterminator.
Mike...I am the exterminator...rahrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!! !
Well the Weimaraner that sleeps in the bed with us would let us know that someone was in the house. He is smart about it tho, he will wake me up by licking my face b4 he goes apeshi$,
once I am up he is balls to the wall. I have never seen a dog get that mad about someone being in his house without us knowing, the hair along his spine stand's on end. lol then i know its time to grab the .45
