It keeps you from hearing where the bad guy is, and, if you're usually with the girl, it probably gives away your position.An acquaintance of mine had an incident. He was asleep in his bedroom and his wife fell asleep on the couch. At about 1:30am someone kicked in their door. The wife woke screaming and the dogs went crazy. With all the ruckus the invader turned tail and ran to a waiting car that zoomed off down the street.
I saw no mention of this in the news, which surprised me in light of what just happened with that craigslist thing.
After hearing that, I did a refresher with the wife on what to do in case it happens to us and decided to taker her to the range for our next "date night".
How many home invasion happen that no one ever hears about?
