Crime Happens Fast
This incident took place in Neptune Beach, Florida.
Three criminally inclined gentlemen decided to burglarize an apartment. Notice how fast it happens. One, two, three and the door is forced open. None appears to be armed, but one does slip on some gloves. You see them going inside the house and then a few second later, they go flying out the door and down the stairs. One dude vaults over the landing railing and takes a nasty landing. If you have the sound off, it's almost funny to see the suspect fleeing.
Couple of things to notice. Again, the front door yields after three fairly minor impacts. Most apartments and homes have similarly weak doors. Can you get to your gun and deploy it the seconds it took to breach the door? That's one hit recognize something's up, one hit to begin to react, and one hit to start moving while the criminals are pursuing you. Home carry or a pistol at hand seems like a good idea.
Three burglars mean multiple targets. Can you engage multiple targets effectively, especially at ultra-close distance? What if they are armed and shoot back? Are you prepared to shoot from a sitting position? Around a door frame or behind furniture? Does your self-defense weapon have the ammo for such a firefight? Not all of them will flee at the first shot though.
