Security: How to defend yourself from a home invasion

IN CASE you don’t own a gun.

Okay I was wondering what is the best way to protect yourself in case you don’t possess a firearm at that moment or you don’t live in Muttistan.
What would PrepHole do in this scenario.
>Hide in a closet or corner while you alert the cops
>Boiling water
>Kitchen knife
>Martial arts
Honestly there’s a lot of possible scenarios like if the guy is carrying a gun by himself in that case what’s the best possible way to react.

    Fishing spear for when they try to get through a window or doorway and then a machete for a follow up.

    Make sure your doors are locked, put up bars over the windows, reinforce the doorframe, add camera, even if they're just fakes, to the outside, put up a security system sign even if you don't have it, get proper locks for all your bedrooms, reinforce those door frames, hide spare keys VERY well. Also, don't loiter around danger zones. Enter and exit your house quickly. I've seen too many vids where some schmuck takes his dear sweet time entering or leaving only to have goons barge in through the entryway. Garage doors are notorious for giving mercs a perfect ambush point.

    If you've got no weapon, the VERY FIRST thing is to secure your dwelling. You don't have to worry about fighting anyone off of they can't get in to begin with, and even before that, making your house an undesirable target with signs, cameras, and good outside lighting will ward off anyone from even trying.

    If by some unfortunate stroke of chance someone still cases your house, breaks through your defenses, and enters, locking yourself in a room would be your safest bet. If you HAD to engage an attacker, know how many there are, don't get jumped by 3 dude.

    If luck is on your side, an ambush is the perfect way to gain the upper hand. Know your house, the hiding spots, and the blind spots. Assuming you're physically fit, post up with a knife, a bat, something heavy, anything. Boiling water would be slow and clumsy with the need for pre staging. You also run the risk of burning yourself. Get the jump on them and be ruthless. Don't stop until they stop moving.

    If its multiple guys, either lock yourself in a room and pray or immediately exfil out of the house. I understand the importance of stuff, but dying leaves you with nothing.

    Wherever you are, stay safe.

      This.

      I'd reinforce the doorframe to the bedroom too and go buy a machete or cutlass rather than a knife, you want to be able to outrange their knife/hammer/bat.

      Just want to add that this sort of thing is great advice for gun owners too. I've seen way too many gun people with thousands or even tens of thousands invested in gucci stuff and a shitty front door with no bolt. If you're dead asleep you need SOME time and warning to get alert and get armed. If they're inside in 15 seconds you're already at a disadvantage unnecessarily. Firearm is not a magic shield bubble and is no excuse to ignore the basics. And it's still best of all if someone takes a look at your house and decides to keep right on moving for an easier target.

    Knife would be the #1 backup plan. They can be just as deadly at HD distances. Doesnt have to be a kitchen knife either, there are plenty of good options for real knives made for this purpose.

    Beyond that - less than lethal would be a good next step, but it has to be something immediately incapacitating to give you time to get away. Pepper spray / taser are the main two I'd focus on.

    Boiling water? What, are you going to ask them to please not kick down the door for 5 more minutes so you can get a pot of water up to temp? You're better off just beating them with the empty pot if it came down to it.

    Depends how much time you have and how many people there are but a makeshift spear using a broom and any random knife or even multiple knives would be the smartest plan if you have access to tape, the knives, and a broom. Their point of entry has to come from somewhere that puts them at a disadvantage and all you need is one clean stab before they're either going to commit or start making significant mistakes. The shock of being stabbed should be enough for you to bolt before they start shooting and then you wait them bleeding to death.

    If you don't know where their entry point is then you're kind of screwed now aren't you? If you're close to your windows are then you can bolt to the windows and shimmy somewhere and at worse take a fall into a roll to try and minimize the damage to your legs. If you're not close to your windows then you need to arm yourself with whatever scissors or maybe cleaners you have on hand nearby but that's a last resort since good luck accurately hitting someone's eyes with cleaner who probably is already wearing some form of mask/glasses. I imagine you know some inconHispanicuous place you can hide in in your house that they're probably not going to check since they're going for immediately valuables.

    If you've been cased then good luck, I have no idea. A spear still seems like the best idea but it's far more dangerous if they pincer maneuver you or just come from other directions of your house, and if your escape route is cut off then good luck.

    Pitch fork. Better than any spear type weapon, because you impale the person 4-5 times rather than once. Imagine walking into a room and you get five, 15"-long metal rods through your chest. Yer dunzo.

    Anyone that cares about living has a gun. If you can’t own one because you are a felon, get a black powder gun like a .45-70 lever action. Stop being a retard. If you are not American, you are probably a goy slave in Europe who will freeze to death in the winter, which is the best thing for you. If you are not white European or America, then who gives a shit.

    Shhhh.... I'll tell you a secret but don't tell anyone.

    One of the most effective, easy to use, has overwhelming power is available to everyone is....

    a powder fire extinguisher.

    I'd suggest a larger size with a hose, it will blind and suffocate an intruder. While they're chocking go smash them in the head. Place them throughout your home. And in case you have a fire you'll be prepared as well.

      This anon knows. We had training at work and it was stressed to avoid eye contact. Powder's corrosive as fuck. If any gets in eye, rinse immediately and go to emergency or else you'd go blind.

      In last years water-foam estinguishers have been developed for home use, so i suspect powder ones might get phased out as too damaging (both property and human).

    For starters, don’t live in a cardboard house. Have a proper door you keep shut und locked, same for your windows. Don’t be an easy target and don’t draw the scum to your house in the first place by showing off and telling everybody how rich you are. Have a dog.

    Spear if you have a good position, rapier if you have an okay position. If they're too close already have a buckler and a short sword or a mace.

    A regular 8" chef knife is incredibly dangerous. Pepper spray is good if you have the kind that is concentrated enough to travel and not just immediately cloud up into your own face. Although it's probably still worth it to spray even if you get yourself.

    If they have a gun you are probably fucked. But chances are you are not facing The Night Stalker or whatever, it's just some guy who wants your stuff. The less of a shithole you live in, the less likely they will think shooting/stabbing someone is worth it too; so by spraying them and showing you are already ready+resisting they will often not want to deal with the situation. They want easy money and minimal wanted stars. Statistically in a non-shithole many invaders are unarmed and trying to sneak around while you sleep or they think you're away on vacation. If you live in South Africa then you should probably own a fucking gun.

    Obviously comply if the gun is on you though. Nothing you can really do there.

    A sword. Longsword around 1.2m of length, plenty of places sell them sharp out of the box too. The weapon of choice for our ancestors unless you had other dudes line up with you with big sticks in an open field.
    >dude bigger than you
    Stab him
    >dude with a knife
    Cut at his hand
    >baseball bats or pipes
    Stab, cut, parry.
    >firearm
    Ok you're fucked, but you could possibly stab the guy before you bleed out.

    I think in most countries they don't even get pegged under the law different from normal knives.

      Don't think a dude is going to hold still while you saw on him. And I doubt a saw makes a good slashing weapons with the teeth.

      WD-40 and a cigarette lighter like Ed Calderon and Black Triangle show looks like a wicked combo.

    I'm 6'3" and 285 lbs, I've been lifting and strength training since I was a teenager and I'm nearly 30. I'm genuinely bigger than almost everyone I encounter in real life unless they are a competing powerlifter. If I didn't have a gun my plan would be to cut the lights, grab my trusty crowbar, and stand silent and motionless in a random room off the main hallway of my house completely naked.

    If they have a firearm my chances aren't great beyond the element of surprise from being suddenly jumped by a screaming naked man-animal with a metal beatstick, but if they don't they are about to experience some cro magnon tier ultraviolence.

      Honestly mate, I'd say that puts your chances right up there. Most people breaking into houses aren't T1 operators or even really expecting any resistance, one good blow to their gun arm as they come round the corner and they're fucked.
