That would be my whole family, pretty much. I'm the only conservative among them (that I know of).
On my mother side my uncle is like me and I still to today hear my mom ask how I am like Doug. Hell she even calls me Doug every once in a while.

On my fathers side which I don't see much are like us here. Both Brothers and their children.

You sure are right about all they know is what they see on the news.
They probably learn a lot from the TV talk shows.
I feel bad for you because Foamily is Family and you have to still love them even if they do have faults.

Yes it is.


Well, actually you don’t. I have one lib relative; and I choose not to have anything to do with her.

Life’s too short to be exposed to that idiotic BS on a personal level.
My aunt actually went to the anti Trump parades and had a pin k ***** hat on. I feel bad for my Uncle. He's married to her.

What says the gang? We live out in the country a little bit. Unknown response time from Sheriff. Property is gated but easy to walk through. I have hardened door/entrances with long screws, etc.

I carry inside all the time, also walking around the property. If I watch a movie the pistol is on the coffee table pointed away next to my right hand. My concern is that we have a nice place and visible nice things that people might want, a couple fancy cars etc. I feel like our exposure is from a planned event like crashing doors/ home invasion style. Bathroom downstairs has Glock on a magnet and cell phone and a heavy bolt on inside for the wife. We sleep upstairs and have several rescue dogs.

I know some people have guns hidden around the place and so do we, but I’m just wondering how others handle security with the proliferation of home invasions on the rise. We have cameras outside too. Any thoughts, suggestions?
Sounds like with tg he dogs you will have advance warning to get to several guns. If they make entrance into the house and you start shooting, they will go away in search of less deadly prey. I'd say your okay!

Here is what I got on Amazon a few years ago.
Better then trying to have it in a drawer or under a pillow.

I didn't even know they existed ! I had the same exact years ago & still do have it in the exact same place as your's ! Excellent for First Reach when in bed at least !

Quite handy I do have a 'few' very lethal ones in all different configurations close by . Without going into too much detail , it would be sufficient for a squad ;)

100% of home invasions happen at home.

When I get dressed, I put on shorts with a belt and a holster goes on the belt.
Guess what goes in the holster...
38 snub? No
380? No
Glock 19? Close, would have been correct until recently.
Glock 17? You win!!!

Glock 17 is on my belt all day everyday, everywhere.
Are there exceptions? Yes, push mowing yard & jogging "just" a PM9. (No belt)

Do I think I "need" a Glock 17 everywhere? No, Hope I don't need a gun at all, never have.
But if I do, I want a gun I shoot quick & accurate, Glock 17 at home & other "good areas" ;)

As stated elsewhere, I carry 100% of every waking moment everyplace I am not prohibited by law, but I'm never without some sort of weapon, including improvised weapons! 🤠

carry 24-7 here, if the sign on the door says you cant enter, I have a conversation with the manager on the phone later.
That's when he finds out how much $$$ he missed out on a sale.
I vote with my wallet !

Have you considered some sort of 'electric eye' system that would alert you if someone crossed your property line. I realize that critters may set it off at night but there may be a way.
I'll let you borrow my new rescue Dog : 'HOPE' . She watches and listens at the window just about every hour on the hour , Or Less ! She has a better 'Nose ' Than our Beagle had ! Just Incredible how alerts she is (y) (y) (y) 'G'

Just noting, it is a fine line between "alert" and "hyper". :)
At least at the puppy stage!
Well going on [ 5 ] , YOU tell me ... Either Way , IF SHE'S SAVING MY LIFE BY BEING 'HYPER' AND OR ALERTING ME , 'I'LL TAKE IT / JUST NOTING ' :rolleyes:'GEESH' . By now after many breeds , I should know

It is well-established fact that dogs, and wives, have excellent selective hearing!
That explains a lot. The mrs. will completely miss something I say right next to her at conversation volume. “What did you say?” is a common phrase in our house. Yet, if I go into the other room mumbling under my breath, cussing about how she never hears a damn word I say, she hears that in Dolby Atmos Cinema clarity.
