Re: ARE YOU A SURVIVALIST?
A bunker, or safe room, isn't a terrible idea - anymore than perhaps a gun safe is. Of course I took down the concrete block walls in my basement years ago to open it all up....(had a garage there, coal room, another room). Ahh, hindsight!
There are house invasions all the time- well, not daily in every neighborhood but enough that it's a worthwhile thing to protect against. But how?
From what I've seen on the news the targets are often elderly...I can't stop growing old.
They often come to the front door and appear as utility/census/church folks while someone else goes in a back door. So keep your doors locked helps.
You can open the door 3" and shove a barrel out to greet every knock...and if two well dressed young folks come to the door they're more likely mormons than gang bangers - but if they jump you you've got little chance to react and CCW won't do much good.
