Something I may not have mentioned when I took the CCW class, but it’s been long enough I can repeat the tip without it being too hackneyed.
Some folks don’t/can’t carry at home (Why? Dunno, but there it is.) So as a lesser precaution, stash a pistol in your internal bathroom.
Home invaders work with shock and speed, most times. The ones that don’t just beat you to death, the NICE violent criminals, will herd the frightened residents into an internal bathroom. That way one guy can watch the door while the others take their time and pick through your stuff. It gives them more time to get away, too, as you don’t want to peek out to see it they are gone. With no windows you can’t escape or shout for help, and there is rarely a phone in the terlet for 911. Smart robbers will get your cellphones before shutting the door.
But you can put a cheap .38 revolver in a ziplock bag taped up under the vanity. (Remember to retrieve it when the plumber comes out.) This gives you options. The bag keeps the humidity from playing hell corroding the works. If you have the possibility of kids being over you can put a combination trigger lock on it and still have access to a functioning firearm in 10 seconds.
Just a thought. Or you can carry at home. That lessens the chance for the initial 'beat you death' option.
