Home Defence

Post by Ryan » Mon Nov 26, 2012 2:23 am

Any thoughts on armed and unarmed or lightly armed (a pen, a flick-knife) home defence and protection?

I came up with a number of ideas, after a certain event... to say the least I won't go into it.

Ideas such as...

COMPROMISES:
- External property compromise. They are outside your property and garden trying to get in. Say through an external gate or hopping a wall. They are trying to get IN to your property.
- External compromise. They are specifically in your garden, on your lawn, on your driveway. They are ON your property.
- Internal house compromise. They are in your house, specifically not in the same room you are in. Barricade, search or escape plan.
- Internal room compromise. They are in your room. Emergency actions.

With each came scenario training.

I then thought about specific contacts such as dealing with short weapons, long weapons, projectile weapons and where I could put myself in the best advantage for a counter. I.e. a door ambush.

Does anyone know any specifics how thieves normally operate? Two man teams? What?

You can divide them up into two catagories: The pros and the amateurs.

In my personal experience, you have two sub-categories within each. The ones that are trying to be "professional" by just getting the "score" and leaving. And the ones that are the "thrill-seekers", looking for an adrenaline rush.
If you have `cleared' all the rooms and met no resistance, you and your entry team have probably kicked in the door of the wrong house.
