    Thank you!

    We're hoping to be able to show people where the deficiencies in security are in their homes, as well as provide them with some realistic "in home" firearms training.

    Any chance you could post some bullet points?

    * bullet resistant 3M glass treatment for first floor windows
    * do-it-yourself safe room/room reinforcement
    * interior lighting choices
    ...and so forth? (just some examples).

    Nothing to give away your course for free, but some topics you'll cover, a bit less vague than the OP?

    TIA

    Each house is a bit different, but I look at interior/exterior lighting, shrubbery, soft target areas, various alarms, and of course some in house firearms training....

    PM me if you have a specific question.

    No, no specific questions. However, one of my sample topics is a very good one. 3M makes a sheeting you can cover your first floor windows with making them very bullet and break in resistant.

    There are also some specific manufacturers that make hardened front and rear door screen doors for about $300. To me those are really overlooked measures that can make your home very difficult to breech.

    What is a 'soft target' area?

    TIA

    Making the first floor more difficult to gain entry to is definitely crucial. Strengthening the window glass and screen doors is a good idea.

    A soft target can be various things, like a side window on the 1st floor that has poor exterior lighting and low visibility from the street & neighbors.
