My brother is really into axes and knives, I’m into guns.
If someone ever breaks in, they better hope that I’m the one that finds them.
Some of those axes are terrifying.
Also a rifle caliber really isn’t a good home defense unless you live on a ranch or somewhere that you won’t shoot through both your walls and the neighbors.
@shocking60, there's no statistical evidence that owning a gun keeps you safer.
(This might not be the case if the CDC wasn't banned from researching guns)
@shocking60, You guys really need to work on your building standards if a rifle like that will shoot through your walls - I’m pretty sure my house could stop a tank shell. (It was built just after WWII by the company who made the bunker HQ for Bomber Command, probably from the same materials. Seriously, I need an SDS drill to hang a picture frame!)
@shocking60, AR-15 is a great home defense weapon. It is likely to go through walls than handgun rounds. The rounds don't have the mass to keep going once the rounds hits a wall, despite the higher velocity. The round tumbles and loses velocity rapidly.
@Nellybert , moderns houses aren’t built to that tough of standards. At least not in my area.
Wood framing, bricks on the exterior wall will some weather barrier, then drywall on the inside.
223 goes right through.
@shocking60, Ah, Ok. Over here it would probably be concrete blocks for the inner skin (the load bearing one) and faced with bricks these days.
The internal walls would normally be wood frame and plasterboard (I think that’s the same as thing drywall), but for some reason they made the ones in this house from concrete too.
@shocking60, ditto, shotgun and sub Sonic caliber handguns are best for home defense
@shocking60, .223 won't travel as far through drywall compared to 9mm, .40, or .45 because it is a lot lighter. Heavier bullets are less susceptible to slow down
@shocking60, this guy, this guys knows his stuff.
@Depressed Panda, so why cops got gun
@Osama bin Dead, yes .223 is lighter but it has a ballistic tip and penetrates well, where 9, 40, & 45 all have parabolic tips and don’t penetrate well. And 10mm rounds have a small flat spot on the tip of them.
But let’s just be smart and use hollow points so we don’t have the issue of shooting though exterior walls during home defense.
@Coozination, This is getting too complicated. I’m just putting metal plating in to the wall on the stairs and a claymore in one of the steps - the explosion should propel the corpse back out the front door, so just a quick skim of plaster on the walls and some new carpet to get everything back to normal.
@shocking60, I'm into weapons in general. I actually got an airsoft gun, machete, and hatchet for Christmas.
@Nellybert , ballistic tip = pointy bullet
Parabolic = roundy bullet
And you can’t use claymores because booby traps aren’t legal I think. Aka Kevin would be in jail in Home Alone.
I sleep naked, best home defense
@TheHippie52, I sleep naked and have a gun.
@jizzgenerator, this is my rifle, this is my gun, this is for fighting and this is for fun!
@TheHippie52, fvckin scary home defense
@TheHippie52, your getting robbed... OH GOD DONT DO THAT OH NO!
I don't have any weapons, but every night I plant lego traps so I can sleep safely
an aim point magnifier with an eotech... TRIGGERED!
This is my home defense
*Throws down Slifer, the Executive Producer*
@SimonPetrikov, it’s no match for my Mega Ultra Chicken!
Two words: wasp spray. Will fvck a person up. Like mace but comes with a straw that makes it spray 30 feet.
@BearDaniels, “It is a violation of federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.” Also, some states have laws against using wasp spray like that.
And they make pepper spray that shoots just as far.
@Coozination, pepper spray doesn’t work as well. Pepper spray is irritating while wasp spray is probably more on the level of mace. Castle doctrine allows for whatever force is necessary to repel an intruder up to lethal force with freedom from prosecution. Particularly if the state has a stand your ground law. If all you have to repel an intruder is wasp spray then that’s fine according to the law.
Top pistol looks like a Glock G19 Gen 3. I have one of those. Super user friendly and ultra reliable. If you need a lifelong companion for defense, can't beat a Glock product.
Guys i cant post comments
I keep a baterrang for home defense
Speaking of hatchets, Wolfenstein 2 story time.
So stealthing Along using the axe to kill them Nazis and I audibly yelped whilst killing one as I tomahawked him in the taint. Whole household heard me was interesting to explain
I'm accurate with my tomahawk and throwing knives up to 10 meters. I'd call that good enough for home defense.
I have a gun dealer as a friend, I’ve been to his house. He is definitely a “beyond hardcore” guy.
Do people really use an a scope and holo sight together? 99% of my gun experience is from video games so I wouldn't know but I would think that it would make the holo dot/crosshair bigger and harder to aim
@Nudity Industries, it’s just a 3x magnifier usually.
It doesn’t make it hard to aim
@shocking60, I run a 3x magnifier and and an aimpoint pro. Doesn't make it any harder to aim.
