Home Invasion Hostage Rescue

This may be a tough situation for you to consider…

But it’s important for you to have a plan NOW so you know how to react if your home is ever invaded and your family’s life is on the line.

You see, home invaders thrive on power and intimidation.

So let me ask you…

What would you do if an attacker was holding a loved one hostage?

Here’s a technique I developed for our home invasion survival program at that could save their life…

Home Defense Tactics: A Risky Way To Save A Home Invasion Hostage…That May Be Your ONLY Way To Survive!

Home Invasion Hostage Rescue

One of the most horrific scenarios you may find yourself in when home invaders break into your home is that they’ll often take a family member as a hostage.

They know that if they put a knife to the throat of your child or spouse, you’ll do pretty much anything they tell you to.

You’ll lay down your weapon… you’ll back away… you’ll even handcuff yourself to a railing if they tell you to!


Because the alternative is that they’ll kill someone you love right before your eyes, right?

Besides, what if you’re armed and “take the shot” but miss and kill your family member instead?

Look, you have to make the judgement call yourself.

But personally, If I’m armed, I’m not going to place my trust in some scumbag thug with no decency or respect for human life.

Here’s a tactic that could help you save your loved one’s life if they have a weapon on them and you’re armed…

First, I understand that the home invader’s brain is focused on YOUR actions, NOT on killing your family member.

Most likely, he’s concentrating on yelling at you to put your gun down.

This is where you ask him, “Ok, where do you want me to put it?”

Here’s why this is important…

When you ask him a question, his brain “disconnects” from harming your loved one to answering your question.

This is called a “break state” and it’s added insurance there won’t be an accidental discharge when you employ this next move…

As he’s answering you, he may motion with his gun or knife away from his hostage and in the direction he wants you to throw your weapon.

At this point – WHILE he’s talking – shoot about a foot over his head and to the side away from your family member.

The shock of the gunfire will create a split second moment for you to immediately rush forward (you can be anywhere within about 20 feet and pull this off at lightspeed).

At point blank range, shove your gun right into the attacker’s body (or head) and pull the trigger.

If you can move his weapon away at the same time, great – but you’re not looking to get into a wrestling match.

What you’re going for is a point-blank kill-shot!

I know the courts frown on me using the words “kill-shot”, but the God’s honest truth is that in this dangerous of a scenario, you may only get one follow-up shot… and it has to end the standoff instantly!

Is it risky?

Hell yeah! But home invasions are the most violent and unpredictable of all crimes.

You can’t wait for the perfect moment to make your move.

It may NEVER come!

That’s why you need every single dirty home defense trick you can get your hands on so that you can CREATE your own opportunity to counterattack or escape.

Tactical Home Defense: Home Invasion TRUTHS About Cover And Concealment

Okay, okay, admit it: the old Michael Keaton film “Johnny Dangerously” is a guilty pleasure.

Joe Piscopo’s line makes me laugh every time.

“This goes through armor… then it goes through the victim, through the wall, through a tree outside… It shoots through schools.”

The thing is, Joe’s “88 Magnum” isn’t actually that special…

Because right now, if you’re a gun owner, you own a gun that shoots through buildings.

I talked to legendary firearms expert Massad Ayoob about this issue, and here is a summary of what he told me.

The TRUTH About Using “Cover” In Your Tactical Home Defense Plan…

The gun you’re not safe from is ANY handgun in most standard calibers.

A locked door is not enough.

Even a wall isn’t enough.

That’ because  handgun rounds will travel through the walls of the average home.

They’ll pass through the hollow-core wooden doors inside your house like a hot knife through butter… and they’ll even penetrate most exterior walls.

So where in your home is safe from bullets in a home invasion?

Here are three tips to keep in mind where cover and concealment are concerned.

1. Bookshelves Are Your Home’s Best “Bullet Absorber”

Pay attention to where the natural points of cover are, and where in your home you can expect bullets to stay put rather than passing on through.

A .45 auto bullet, 230 grain, that would go through as much as 30 inches of muscle tissue-simulating ballistic gelatin, will generally stop after about six inches of hard-backed book material.

Heavy bookshelves full of books are therefore a good “bullet absorber.”

Those layers of paper do wonders for stopping a bullet, even though an individual book isn’t enough.

2. Anything With Lots Of Metal Is Cover!

Any item in your home with lots of metal in it has a good chance of stopping a bullet.

This includes obvious things like cast-iron fireplaces and old claw-foot iron bathtubs.

But it also includes major kitchen appliances like freezers and ovens.

Sadly, though, you just don’t find much natural cover in most American homes.

That’s why strategically placing your bookshelves is so important.

So what else can you do?

Well, that leads me to…

3. When Possible, DON’T BE THERE

Your best option when it comes to taking fire in a home invasion is to anticipate where the intrusion is most likely to be.

Where are YOU likely to be when this happens?

Typically these things occur in the deep-sleep hours.

The single most likely place for you to be is in your bed when a home invasion occurs.

Consider your plans in that context.

That way, when the bullets fly, you won’t be in their path.

Instead, you’ll have a superior position… and you’ll be ready to take those invaders down.
