Imagine being tied up and helpless as you watch 3 thugs hauling your wife out of the room… sobbing… and not knowing what they're about to do to her.
You desperately try to think of something (anything!) you could do to save her and end this nightmare but the ropes around your wrist are so tight, they're cutting off circulation… and your gun might as well be a thousand miles away because you can't get to it.
This scenario is more common than you think and here's…
One Couple's Home Invasion Nightmare – And How They Survived!
A home invasion is every couple's worst nightmare – and one husband and wife's reality in Lakewood, Washington when three armed thugs forced their way into their home.
The home invaders pistol-whipped the husband and slashed his wife, then tied the couple up.
It's very likely that rape and murder were on the menu that night… and the husband's legal pistol was hidden away in the couple's bedroom.
Fortunately, the husband was able to free himself while the thugs weren't paying attention and planning their next move with the couple.
Freeing his wife, they ran to the bedroom and he was able to get to his gun, killing one of the invaders as they tried to make their way through the bedroom door.
While the story has a happy ending, this could have turned out very badly.
Lessons Learned For How To Survive A Home Invasion
1. Don't be tricked
This invasion started with a knock on the door.
You may think no one would be “stupid” enough to open a front door when 3 men are standing outside, but home invaders are very clever.

2. Know where to hide your gun
The #1 best place to hide your gun at home is on your person in a concealed holster.
Home invasions are typically ambushes and you won't have time to go get your gun from where it is stored in a bedside drawer or safe.
3. Know how to escape
If you were tied up with rope or bound with duct tape, would you know how to escape?
Home invaders know better than to let you fight back against them should they start to touch your wife.
That's why they'll likely beat you and tie you up or handcuff you so they have full control over whatever they want to do.
Remember, home invasions are NOT always about taking your t.v. and cash – they're about control and brutal violence – plain and simple.
Trying to bribe your attackers or just telling them to take whatever they want and leave won't have any effect on them.
They're there to watch you beg and suffer in the most horrible ways you can imagine.
Don't wait until you're staring down the barrel of an attacker's gun.
