How a steel security door helps prevent "push in" home invasions (video)

Below is a video of an attempted "push in" armed robbery at a marijuana dispensary which demonstrates some important truths about how a steel security door can be used to prevent a "push in" home invasion at your home.  Actually, the business and the armed security guard who answers the door bell are using the steel security door bass-ackwards, and that forces the security guard into a completely preventable gunfight. But you can learn just as much, if not more, about how to do it right and how valuable a steel security door can be by watching this event.

Timely review of burglary prevention steps to be taken

Here's a local TV station's segment on preventing home burglaries.  They asked 86 people serving prison time for burglary to provide information and what they got was very revealing (though standard stuff).  Worth a watch (3:29), though you should take it all with a grain of salt, because these are people who got caught and convicted. wink

New products to improve the security of your doors

Doors are the most common points of entry for burglars and home invaders.  The fact is that most doors are designed to keep honest people out and are easily breached with one to three good kicks.  Rarely are tools needed to kick open a door, and burglars rarely bring the necessary tools because of that.  If I could only do two things to prevent or deter a burglary they would be: 1) install a monitored alarm system, and 2) fortify all your doors.  Below is an article reviewing door security hardware meant to be installed by homeowners.

How would you have fared in this home invasion attempt?

Watch this home security video of a recent Philadelphia home invasion attempt and honestly ask yourself: If these guys had done the same thing at my house, how would it have turned out?  (Don't just read my description of the home invasion below, because that will only engage you intellectually.  Watching the video will engage you emotionally too, and you need that to properly learn from it.)

Time to batten down the hatches?

Michael Snyder, in his signature way, is advising readers to batten down the hatches regarding your safety based on recent developments.  I live in Philadelphia so I battened down my hatches a long time ago. However, just this week a began carrying a second spare Glock magazine on my belt and wearing a Kevlar vest TO CHURCH (mostly because of a "premonition" re: ISIS).  Trouble is brewing, but I'm not sure I see it the same way Snyder does.

Real world survival tips from Ukraine (via FerFAL)

FerFAL, author of Surviving the Economic Collapse, recently posted some very valuable survival tips on his website gleaned from people who are surviving in the current civil war in Ukraine.  There are numerous very valuable lessons we can learn from the survivors' accounts and advice, and we should learn them now vicariously before we have to learn them by personal experience in the "School of Hard Knocks."

Home invasion armed response on camera

In an apartment building, a crazed man kicks in his neighbor's door wielding a machete intent on killing the two people inside.  The resident locks his door but when the crazed, homicidal man kicks in his door he fires three shots from his handgun, putting an end to the danger.  The crazy neighbor with the machete lives and will now stand trial on serious charges.

Hi Kathy! Michigan is quiet! It's you and me!

Any specific discussions you'd like to see open up for Michiganders? Excited to see who will find/join us! What are your preparedness priorities? Our family has focused on the basics -- alternate location with shelter, food, sustainable future food, off-grid living and protection. It's always a pull as to where available resources should go next, right? I'm interested in hearing if anyone has dealt with their retirement savings yet -- as in self-directed precious metals so you can actually get them if the SHTF, etc.
