    Hopefully only one mag, cause I usually only carry the mag that's in the gun. That's still 15 rounds of .40 ... 16 if I wanted to carry +1.

    Be aware of the choke points in your house (doors, stairs, windows, etc.) and use them.

    The first choke point is the point of invasion entry, door or window, and if you are armed and can immediately suppress it, do so. If not, retreat to a point where you arearmed and at the ready, and have a choke point (doorway, hallway, stairway) between you and the BG's and set up to defend it. If a BG breaches orwill about to successfully breach the choke point and you can retreat beyond another choke point, do so.The point is, it is better to force the BG's to have to go throughchoke points you are defending than for you to go into or be ina room with BG's in it.

    I have a fallback weapon at all times in the house... Shotgun or SKS.
    Anything I post may be my opinion and not the law... you are responsible to do your own verification.

    Blackstone (1753-1765) maintains that "the law holds that it is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer."

    Of course it was near Oak Street. What else is new?

    I keep telling all of my friends down that way to arm themselves. Of course, that neighborhood is made up of INCREDIBLY anti-gun people, who would rather lose everything they own and risk the lives their loved ones and themselves, then DARE be caught with something as evil as a gun in their bedroom.

    I swear to God they need to up police in that area or at least have someone convince the ignorant liberal arts kids who inhabit it that protecting yourself is a GOOD thing.

    Because that whole area of Kalamazoo has been going down for a few years.

    There used to be tons of Police in the student Ghetto. Problem is, they are/were only concerned with MIP and Open Intox.
