    Well, I have steel security doors on all entrances, so, it would be a noisy effort to get in. Plenty of warning to call the police and get the bat. Or the sledgehammer. Or the many, many knives I keep razor-sharp in my kitchen.

    I may not even need the gun.

    Beat them down with a frying pan, chainsaw them, and possibly defenestrate them. And to finish it off, call the cops. Self defense.

    To be honest, some of us are joking, some of us seems really serious, and there is too much Charles Bronson like statements, so I don't like the direction this thread can take.

    Not the right place for this I believe.

    Also, for all gun nuts, most of gun related death when a burglary happens have actually as victims the gun owner...

    I will say that I was I was being silly. Honestly, if someone was sincere in their efforts (I do actually have the steel security doors) there would be crying, hyperventilating phone calls to the police while I clutched the cast iron skillet. (Which I probably could use in a pinch; I've seen Tangled half a dozen times.)

    I always wondered why my Dad thought I was joking when I suggested digging a moat around the house, full of snapping turtles. Not to mention the fence covered in thorny blackberry vines.

    I'll probably throw the nearest thing to me then proceed with pounding him with a chair. The chairs here are not that heavy and they are quite durable.

    I happen to have a claymore I could use to scare them off with. I'm also pretty tall, that would definitely help with the intimidation factor.

    The Security Guards would take care of him or her. Always these extreme Fans.

    Maybe handing out a T-Shirt with a Print of Mine as Souvenir.

    Why I'd invite them to have a tea. Or actually force them.

    Recently prepared tea, still boiling. In their face. Teapot included. And maybe down their pants as well, I'm unsure. I'll have to think further about that.

    I mean, it's a pure mix of politeness and fairness.

    Unfortunately this really happened to me 20 years ago. I was 8 and my mother was pregnant of my brother at that time, luckily I was too busy being a kid and so watching cartoons and she was too busy doing her chores of course, this means that both of us didn't even realize what was happening.

    Basically my mother left the door of our house a bit open for my father, he was returning from work (she spotted him from our balcony) when a few minutes later while she was doing her chores, there was this unknown man that suddenly appeared, entered and sneaked in my parents bedroom and (I have no idea how he found it because it was so well hidden) stole my mom's gold necklace that my grandfather gifted to her and ran away with it.

    Me and my mother were completely unaware of everything, we didn't hear a single noise, that man was insanely fast but not fast enough for my father luckily, that bumped into him along the way while he was still trying to get out of our house, punched him, blocked him while my neighbors instinctively called the police in the meantime, that came immediately and arrested him. I don't even want to write where he was hiding that necklace...

    Days after his mom came here apologizing countless times and crying begging for forgiveness but my father didn't want to hear excuses, my mother was pregnant and the scare of seeing that man could've easily caused her serious complications.

    U shyt'n me? LoL

    My goodness, where in the world has life gone to? o_O

    That lady surely needs a big slap on the face for a wake up call!!! O_O

    Other than that, sounds to me that it could probably have been a friend of ur parents friends if they knew where the stash were at or a friend of hated relatives that are in dire need of hard cold cash X_X

    I agree and yes, it's definitely possible that he was investigating, asking around and planning to do it for a while, it wouldn't make sense otherwise. People can be scary and freakishly nuts.

    Ignoring the fact that my new apartment here in Japan is like a god dayum fortress despite it also


    obviously, by its facade, not being the apartment of


    a particularly well-to-do person so no intruder is likely to come in, I would probably do what I did the last time I thought


    an intruder had gotten into my previous apartment (I had just bought a dog, and so I wasn't entirely sure if the sound was


    coming from the dog or something else because it was pretty "non-doggy" sounding)


    Very quietly get out of bed, readied my cell-phone to quick-dial the emergency number, took out the baton I keep under the bed


    next to the night-stand, and positioned myself by the sliding door to my bedroom, on the side


    least likely to be the one a person unfamiliar with my apartment would look to first when opening the door,


    and then I stayed there until the sound quieted down.


    Once I waited for a reasonable amount of time, I got my tac-light, and did a sweep of the apartment, checked all closets, windows


    and the front door, and finally got back to sleep.

    All intruders here are considered armed.

    They would be met with a loaded pistol.

    We have alerady had our security gualds killed once.

    Do you feel more comfortable if you have a gun at home? I think I wouldn't, because the gun would always remind me of the danger.

    Imagine you see the gun in your bedside cabinet every time you go to sleep. Would it really calm you down? I think it would make me paranoid, thinking about what COULD happen, even if it likely won't. I probably couldn't fire it at a human anyway.
