    Three or four years ago when I was a homeowner, I was doing some reno work at the top of the stairs. I was alone in the house, it was late at night, and I had the music up loud. For whatever reason, I happened to glance down the stairs just in time to see a shadow move (I had no pets at that time).

    I dropped the plaster knife, grabbed the tomahawk (yes, a tomahawk. Am I the only one who uses a 'hawk when doing drywall?) and let out a "HOLY ****!" ... and then my student Ken sheepishly stuck his head around the corner, and apologized for startling me. He had keys to my place, and was just dropping some stuff off for me.
    "Your student Ken"....was "dropping some stuff for you"... hmm....im sure he did...Happen to have Keys to your place...Did you come out of the closet to greet him? Jk man.

    grab my emerson knife, head for the front door quietly, if possible grabbing my composite escrima stick on the way there. then kill anything that moves, and ask questions later.

    There have been a good number of break-ins in my city so this scenario does have me somewhat worried these days. The only real weapons I could use are swords which would be probably useless. So I figure I will just put a life size cut out behind my door of this.:

    if the wife and kids are home - i quickly grab the aluminum bat from under the bed and try to get to the intruder before my wife encounters them as she tries to reach the kids.

    if i'm alone - i get my 9 and wait.

    why dont i get my 9 in the first scenario??? because the wife will be sprinting across the house (1 story with our room on one side and the kids room on the other) to reach the kids. not enough time to go into the top drawer and pull it out of the safe.

    On the serious side...

    If you live in a flat and it is yours I think the best defense is installing a solid reinforced door and window by the fire escape. If you live in a house and have a family, especially in a bad 'hood or working risky jobs, where somebody might come after you (there's a horrible example Geoff Thompson wrote about in Watch my back), it must be a whole different story... Luckily I can't imagine how it must be constantly worrying about safety of your kids. But I think I would try to turn at least bedrooms in some kind of improvised panic rooms and make sure that operating phone will always be in them.
    Keeping everyone armed would also make me edgy, because one might open up on another, who just needs a glass of water and creeps around trying not to wake all house... And keeping weapons close by in every corner is never a good idea in a house full of kids.
    The problem is, that a good and relatively safer house 'armor' attempt costs much more than say a glock, beretta, taurus,... (which might just be out of reach when **** hits the fan) but that would be a money well spent.

    Just my thoughts. By the way like Erezeb's home, my house also has some iron ornaments fixed over easily reachable windows and doors. It poses a bit more of a problem for a potential vengeful spirit or housebreaker, and is less morbid than looking through bars.

    Actually, we have plans for multiple scenarios at my place. I have had both my spouse and son over to the leo complex for training in home invasion, car jacking and various role playing stints. Should a break-in occur, there are weapons stashed (plus body armor, lights and extra mags) at strategic spots throughout the house. Plans call for cell phone use to offset possible cut wires and barricade while I confront the intruder(s). Safe words and rally points have also been set up. Even went so far as to go through plans for bug out and how to deal with threats while mounted (for when we are out and about in the vehicles). Too many home invasions and car-jackings in our area not to be prepared.
