More security ideas, including wireless game cameras if you are next to or in, the woods. Most require a power source and the net.

If prepping is a lifestyle, you are still in your home and living your life, he does not recommend making the windows look like a fortress. He gave tips such as a type of plastic sheeting on the window to strengthen it. He said if your living room looks like an episode of hoarders TV show, you are likely doing it wrong.  :)

My Note: All that said (I feel) if you actually are in your survival location, bunker, dome whatever yes the windows need to be small and unbreakable and secured. Or they are no good at all to stand up to high winds, intruders, etc.

Interviewer Dave Womach suggested netting etc. Presenter didn't think it was as foolproof as boards on door.
(My note: Where boards are depends on if the door opens out or in...)

Force On Force Training - http://simunition.com/en/

Presenter empathized this point: When bullets are flying there can be unintended fatalities. Over - penetration is when a bullet intended for an attacker passes through and hits someone behind him - or it goes through a wall where one of your family members is!

Try to avoid ever having that gunfight... do it if you need to, though.

Here's a few suggestions. also posted in the Topic, Lack of money.

This is about protecting your goods from thieves.
...


One thing which might work is spend a bit of cash and get a hole dug in the back of the house, on your survival location.

•   Put in a reinforced concrete underground supply storage
•   A reinforced wooden cover which you can move.
•   If you use a concrete or metal cover it may need a rope looped into it -
•   so it can be moved by a couple of people
•   I would put some mold inhibitor crystals in the corners; put a tarp inside
•   a few shelves and -
•   a small ladder which goes down into the inside.
•   I would put a lot of the supplies down in there, cover it up.
•   I would put a flameproof spray on the lid (if wooden) and -
•   sprinkle gravel all over it, then some other kind of chamo.
•   RV, camper or other vehicle on the property? Drive it over the entrance to the underground food storage.
•   Not putting the wheels on the door of it, just straddling it.

Any other ideas on how to disguise and protect an underground storage?

Destiny comes to those who listen, and fate finds the rest.

So learn what you can learn, do what you can do, and never give up hope!
