Then I'm going to have a delicious bowl of cereal.

I'm a little concerned that Searcher leaves himself and his home/family unprotected when in the shower. Has he considered investing in a Lexan shower screen and hiding a pistol in an excavated cavity behind a purposefully-loose tile in the bathroom wall?
Joking of course - but I did once read a comment on Usenet from someone who claimed to have covered the underside of his bathtub with kevlar, the idea being that he could make his kids lie down in the bath when 'they' came for him and started shooting up his house...
I'd go one further. I'd reinforce all my soft furnishings and doors with kevlar too, to serve as convenient cover for the inevitable gun battle to come (I got this idea from watching Terminator - The Sarah Connor Chronicles).

Funny, but my father is oneof those hiding the PVC pipe guys. Plus I have an aunt and 2 uncles who are just like him. They make me nervous when I amaround them. I have run across guys and women at handgun and rifle training that are to the extreme as well. One husband and wife team I know have land back off the road that is stockpiled with food, arms, and ammo. They are also stocked up in other survival items and they try to get more people to be like them. They have been reading books like Patriots a little to much.

I was home alone last night and watching Supernatural. I started wondering what I'd do if I had one of those movie moments where a zombie slammed itself in front of my window and I started hearing scratching sounds on the roof.
Is there any oven/flame-based defense I could use?"I'm reluctant to sound like a total fa66ot as well, but my background in sculpture gave me an edge in understanding how we're expected to move thru space." - The Other Other Serge

Snake - cold I get the name of that product? I caught some of the damned neighborhood kids trying to climb my wall last week and I'd like to discourage that *g*.

Genuine home defence question:
Better to ambush or stalk/investigate unexpected noise/stranger/etc?

Can't help thinking though, in any area where a home invasion is likely, a burglary is more likely. Some criminal breaks into your home when you're not there, they're now going to be an exceptionally heavily armed criminal.
I suppose that a rejoinder to this would be that, "Yeah, but if no one's home, there's no threat to my - and my family's - safety. They can be as heavily armed as they like, they can't shoot me if I'm not there." And if you don't feel responsible when some innocent person gets held up - or worse - with what used to be your unsecured gun, then I suppose there's nothing I can say to you.
Regardless, if I lived in an area that required me to be armed at all times in order to feel safe, my chosen method of home defence would be to find a good real estate agent.
