    Interested in hearing what some of you use as far as home security goes. Anyone have any unique or cutting edge technology for there home? Touch screens, wireless connections or anything else that may be new to this market? Thanks.

    I don't lock my doors or my garage, and never put the alarm on. If someone takes your stuff....you get new stuff.

    Ok, seriously... Hmmm, how shall i say this. Know the son of Gun And Ammo magazine owner and began using firearms when i was 8 years old. Have taken various safety courses....

    In the end if you see the below, it WILL BE the last thing you will EVER see.

    Personally, if it can be replaced with money then it is not THAT important. Material objects can usually be (relatively) easily repurchased/tracked. It is also good to take some personal defence courses and brush up yearly.

    Enjoy the Drive,

    Yep, get a dog. A gun will NOT wake you up when the thug comes in the door at 2:00am.

    Then a gun, actually a shotgun for home-d is the best choice. In fact a pump one was our recommendation. Everyone in the world knows exactly what that sound it when you cycle the action.

    That sounds like good advice. That must be bone chilling to hear that thing.

    DrStranglove,

    Agreed... In fact ANYTHING that brings LOUD noise and unwanted attention to a robber/burglar is an excellent deterrent in an of itself. Will not discuss the home security here due to obvious reasons.

    FYI: Have worked in that field and am aware of various intricacies. Noise is the first best defense (generally). The LAST thing is pulling the trigger. There are various things between those two extremes.

    Enjoy the Drive,

    Steven R. Rochlin

    I know what you're thinking punk. You're thinking did he fire six shots or only five. And to tell you the truth I forgot myself in all this excitement. But being this is a 44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world and will blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself a question. Did you enjoy the music? Well did you, punk? :D :D

    Pelco security cameras, I can view my home from my family website any where I can get web access plus I can speak via web to external speakers ( UPS deliveries and such). Normal hi-end security system connected to motion lights which show up on the house tv's. I have a huge arsenal like the others but heck anybody can be brave pulling a trigger, hand to hand is much more fun. Plus we have private security in our enclave ,never had a real threat. All the security crap is more for the coolness factor than paranoia of being broken into. My childhood buddies military types designed the system. Piece of mind is easy all it takes is big bags of cash. Biggest use so far was neighbors annoying cat and dog on my property, he claimed they weren't I showed him the tape told him to chain them or they would go into the ocean or my Korean friend's restaurant .

    Hey Mark, the 44 magnum is a wussy gun compared to my Smith & Wesson 500 revolver.

    Some very interesting replies. Didn't expect to see many gun advocates, but I suppose it is a viable option and a good one for that fear factor as explained above. I guess i was thinking of the actual system of hopefully detering someone before they could actually enter. As in what wakes you up and so forth, but yes when i move I will definitly be getting a dog as well and hey i like dogs so that is no problem. I suppose it costs a decent amount of money for a LCD screen that displays your whole system and such to turn parts on and off. Interesting though.

    Texas!

    DrS, I talked to an FBI agent many years ago. He told me that the scarest thing in the world to a B&E guy was hearing the clack of a pump shotgun or a 9mm or 45 being racked.

    Personally, I'd go with the pump. Imagine seeing my wife with a pump loaded with buck, screaming at the top of her lungs, waving the gun around knowing that there is no way she can miss with a shotgun.

    DrT

    ps In Texas, it is legal to blow away somebody as long as they fall into the house. There have been some strange cases where the pep somehow got blown backwards into the house. Imagine that.

    Yeah, it is bigger. Unfortunately many people try to make up for lack of shooting skills with firepower. The faithfull are still boycotting S&W too.

    My home is patrolled by an elite team of Nuns with guns...
