Alarm Drop Response


Post by Archery1 » Sun Oct 22, 2017 8:47 am

I had an alarm drop about 3 00 am the other morning which turned out just weather related, but in the end it opened my eyes to my unpreparredness. The ONLY thing I had or did right was having the nightstand gun ready. After it was all over and secure, I realized all my errors. First, no reading glasses to see the bedroom keypad to even know what part of house affected. Then, walking into lit area of livingroom, again, not knowing if should be looking east, west, south or even where I came from. I see that I have night lighting to help me, but it's also only where I am. Dark halls, closed rooms, etc... make up the rest of the house. Felt like a sitting duck.

Was wondering what reading sources anyone recommends or just plain personal tips you have or things you do to be more prepared AND to respond more defensively. I've fixed the reading glasses issue. Sits by gun. But, things like hall lighting, motion lighting, or even general best proceedure...
