Clifford,

The very first thing that crossed my mind, admittedly a short trip, was the comment about your wife's blood pressure.  Now that has all sorts of ugly consequences.  I wondered if you had addressed that problem with your Dr.  There are fast acting tranq.s that get things back to a"livable" range quickly but I am just groping with that subject.  Be prepared with the right ammo, gun and meds.  God knows we love you guys.....Please be careful and be a good Scout.

Your Friend,

John

Yep John I have a young EMT to thank that came with the police I guess that is common practice to take care of any vent holes in the thief but he took one look at her and check her blood pressure then transported her to the ER.  


good luck

Hi, Cliff.

I finally got online!

Has Sonja gotten better since her pressure spiked?

I'll be home in a few hours and call you again after some rest.

Glad everything came out reasonably well for you. I would just like to add that an empty gun is just not a good thing for a couple of reasons. If you are going to be passive then it is best not to appear aggressive because the appearance of a gun could cause escalation of the force from the idiots that invaded your home. You just cannot count on these type of personality (those who would boldly break into your home and rifle through your valuables) to be unarmed and back down at the appearance of a gun.

I believe a person needs to be prepared to use the gun if you choose to escalate the situation. Just as the police officers do and for the same reason, keep the gun loaded and ready to use if you are forced to use it. Otherwise I would say you should not display an empty and useless gun and take your chances on the mercy and reasonable thinking (yikes!) that the invader might show you and your loved ones. Seems clear to me that taking responsibility for oneself and for your family is not having the ability to call 911 and wait. Nor is it to grab an unloaded gun and point. Don't get me wrong, guns need to be safe and kept away from untrained persons that might misuse them and also be kept away from the idiot that invades your home so they don't easily grab and use the gun on you. Concealing gives you a great advantage. If you pull it out then be prepared to use it. Also, when dealing with these type of idiots, I would not want them to have an opportunity to return under any circumstances. Glad you survived this ordeal and I sure hop your wife is doing better.

A year ago I was doing some remodeling.  I hired an ex-con to help and he worked out very well and I left him in the house while I went for materials.  One day when I returned he told me that the dogs had earned their keep.  Seems they went off barking, not all that rare an event, but he thought there was a different tone so he called them.  They refused to come or stop barking.  He found them in my shop staring down a young jerk that was frozen in place half way thru the laundry room.  26 and 17 pounds of "you aren't supposed to be here".  At first I was pissed that I hadn't been there but later I thought "maybe its for the better".  I fed the "troops" steak that night but I only had to cook one of'em.
