    Is it me?, or has there been a dramtic increase of Home invasions in the Boise area recently? altho I suspect many of them are not random.

    How many of you keep your weapon holstered at home at all times?

    Don't know if you guys watch the news or not, but a couple weeks ago, there was a guy that got stabbed at his g/f's apartment by the girls ex-b/f. turned out to be one of my freinds brother. long story short, he took on all 7 guys, when the kid stabbed him, the vic stepped back and was like WTF???, and the perp was shocked, and was some how expecting him to just drop down dead, the vic ran back and grabbed a baseball bat and went outside and took all 7 of them on!

    the video on ktvb shows him with a blackeye, but that was a result of a bar fight the night before. those kids were lucky he wasn't packing!

    but then agian, the vic is no angel, he is known as a hard core scrapper in his circle.

    And also less maneuverable and easier for the suspect to disarm you...for a house I would honestly not use anything other than a handgun with nice sights...

    I have noticed that crime in the Boise area is on the rise, a few years ago watching the news all you hear about is all the good deeds the Boise people are doing for the community...now its:

    "BREAKING NEWS:

    A man is shot in his home.


    An elderly woman is raped and beaten in her home."


    It's getting ridiculous...and all the more reason to OC anytime you go anywhere remotely dangerous...the bank...at night...etc...

    I may not "always" have something holstered, but that dosn't mean it's not handy.

    Another New one, this sudden crime spike is just weird.

    UPDATE: Kidnapper shoots woman, kills self 01:27 PM MDT on Monday, March 31, 2008 KTVB.COM BOISE - Police say a man broke into a home and kidnapped a woman Sunday night in Boise.
    Now, the Box Elder County, UT Sheriff's Office tells NewsChannel 7 that the suspect shot the kidnapped woman in the leg before shooting and killing himself.
    The kidnapping happened last night at about 9:45 p.m. at a home on North Liberty St. in Boise near Franklin and Allumbaugh. Witnesses called police and said they saw a man with a gun.
    Police say when they responded to the home, it looked like someone busted in - and a woman in her mid-40s was nowhere to be found. Three children inside the home ran to a neighbors home. They were not harmed.
    The Box Elder County Sheriff's Office said just after 2 a.m., the man stopped at a convenience store near Snowville, UT and tried to purchase beer. A clerk at the store refused to sell the beer since it was after the legal hours for selling alcohol. Police say he then stole the beer and took off.
    Early this morning, two rabbit hunters spotted the couple in a secluded area in Box Elder County arguing. The hunters said they thought something was "weird" about the situation, and alerted the Box Elder Sheriff's Office - then left the area.
    Before deputies could respond, the man shot the woman in the leg. She was taken by helicopter to a Salt Lake City hospital. She is alive, but her condition is not known.
    The man then turned the gun on himself as sheriff's deupties approached. He died from the gun shot.
    Officers say there's a history of violence between the suspect and victim. They have not released the name of either in this case.

    Four posts and not one more comprehensible than another, I say you can't be a day over 14. I mean I could be wrong, but I trust myself on this one.


    Law enforcement are out there not only to stop crime, but to PREVENT crime, solving problems...this doesn't mean that you cannot spend some time protecting yourself...because there is less than one cop per...300 people usually?

    I don't always carry at home, but there is always a loaded gun within easy reach. 12 guage pump next to the bed or the couch (depending on where I'm spending my time that day) and my normal carry piece on my computer desk or kitchen table. I've been considering hiding my small 45 somewhere with easy access. It's nice not having kids and being able to trust your roommate (also a gun nut). Anytime I have company, the easy access to the guns is removed and my handgun is holstered.

    If I am awake, I have my .45 on my hip. When I am in bed it is locked and loaded in my underwear drawer 18 inches from my head (no kids of course).

    Came home on friday night last week at about 2:30 AM to find a cop car in my driveway. I entered my home with my glock holstered, ready for trouble. My mom was up with a an Ada County sherriff dusting her car for fingerprints.

    Apparently my mom witnessed at least two (maybe a third?) males break into her car that was parked in the driveway. They got away with about $100 worth of stuff. From talking to the cop he said that 2 similar incidents had been reported in the same area that night.

    Note that I live in Eagle. This is not what is traditionaly considered a 'bad part' of town in anyway. Yet all of these incident reports were happening between midnight and 2 am. Very brazen, potentially dangerous.

    Just one more reason to carry 100% of the time

    "for the suspect to disarm you"

    Minor pedantic nitpick: when they're doing it to you, they're not "suspects". They're perpetrators. Suspects are people who may or may not be connected to a crime, under consideration at some point removed from a crime, or persons at the scene where a crime may have been committed but one is not sure.

    Police interact with suspects, citizens interact with bad guys.

    Goblins, bad guys, perps... the guyyou catchbreaking into your house is one of these, not a "suspect"

    On another point, a handgun is what you carry when you're not expecting a gunfight. A 5' fowling piece is not the shotgun you want for home defense, but a shotgun neverthelesscan bean effective home defense weapon. And very few things are as chilling as the sound of a pump shotgun being racked in the dark.
    Be prepared. Be very prepared.

    Ex SC Attorney General Charlie Condon made great hay and ended, for a while, SC's home invasion problem by promising NOT to prosecute residents of invaded homes.

    Yes sir, that's worked out very well for our glorious state of South Carolina. We are a true Castle Doctrine state.
