I spend a ton of time home - I work from home - so I tend to have a lot of time for contemplation. I live about hour from the closest town (Holbrook, AZ) and really have not been to any town in about four weeks. Whe I talk about defense it incorporates so many different things. Most people just think bang bang...home defense.
It all started for me when I read a good book called Patriots, ( http://www.rawles.to/patriots.htm
) now this is the extreme edge of home defense but good reading and the fiction is not bad. The book opened my eyes to looking at home defense in a whole new light! Have you ever thought about "getting outa Dodge" so to speak...or what is in "your bug out bag" - would/could you leave your home and where would you go if the end of the world as we know it - comes about?
I guess before I get to far into the whole home defense thesis -
How many of you live in the city?
How many of you ever think about having to evacuate?
How many of you have a food storage?
How many of you have a way to filter water?
How many of you have a bug out bag?
How many of you have a place to go if you need to leave the city/town/or even township?
Ooops notice not a word about guns or bow and arrows yet....
Well, if you are in the four state area and have skills - you can always show up on my doorstep!
