over here it's slightly different: they wait for older people to open their door, when they get back from walking their dog or doing groceries, then force their way in with them beat/murder them and rob the place.
more and more they use guns too, usually knives.
entering your house can be just as dangerous as answering the door.
same goes for parkinglots, cars whatever.
situational awereness is the key.

like my neighbourhood has burgerly (AARGH! spelling??) issues, just a week ago another place got burgeled into down my street, and some minor junky problems but only in summerime.
the bigger cities here got the more rough variant of armed entrance and the richer suburbs got stuff like armed entrance in order to get carkeys.
the cars are so well secured that the criminals take more desperate measures.
all and all home entries are rare, there's more violent thingies such as armed robbery and stabbings/shootings/fights during the weekends.
im pretty sure nyc knows all about that/

Having a plan for burglaries and home invasions isn't a bad idea. We have a serial rapist(s) working his way through our area back home. A suspect was caught for a series of assaults on the base but the police aren't sure if its the same guy who committed a string of assaults last summer. They bastard was targeting house where he knew the men were deployed. We always had a basic plan for such things just like we have for fires but I made sure we went over again just in case.
One simple thing I always advice that helps in both is a dog. Sure you got to feed it and look after it but a good dog with a loud bark and do wonders. In GA someone attempted to break in our neighbors house. Their dog raise such a wracked that they fuckers fled. Some kids tried to **** around in my yard one summer kicking over our patio furniture and such. The combination of the dog and the sound of me chambering my clock resulted in us never having a problem again. But keep in mind if you can punt it then its not a dog!______

You can't practice Judo just to win a Judo Match! You practice so that no matter what happens, you can win using Judo!The key to fighting two men at once is to be much tougher than both of them.

Gezere - thanks for the back up. Unfortunately I don't own a gun and if I got a dog it would have to be small and cute.

I always remember an incident from the time that I lived in the People's Socialist Republic of New Jersey.
These douchebags that worked for the county would show up unannounced to "check the tags" on our dogs - ostensibly to see if the tags had expired, though I think they had other agendas. I had been cleaning my SKS Carbine and was expecting company, so I simply answered the door with the carbine over my shoulder.
The color quickly left the county guy's face. He even fumbled in his pants and showed me his county ID. And there were two barking alsatians behind me.
I think he probably needed a drink that night. And new underwear.

What I do for a drill is run through a vacant place. Sometimes I pretend the people are armed, or old, or whatever to just change it up. Sometimes I'll try under different lighting.
Don't forget to carry a bag or an item of electronics - there's no point in learning techniques that get you out, but leave the loot behind.
One tip is to not just grab a big, expensive item - you also want to look for small things like jewelry or cash, and never neglect the smallest, lightest electronics - ipods, laptops, game systems, etc.
