I believe in #4, but haven't quite loaded up my arsenal, which would make this the most effective method. I try to go through a scenario in my head to determine how I would react if "surprised" by a home invasion, or even someone breaking in while we sleep. Would I even be completely ready to unload on the intruder? I just don't know.

It is something you need to know before you are faced with the situation. Mindset is the most important tool you can have in your toolbox.

Security is best dealt with in layers.

Well, good locks is a must.
Good firearms are an even better must.
Good back-up to good firearms is VERY important, bats, axes, chainsaws, I mean, what will YOU do when the zombies attack?
Definitely not a dog, they have to be fed, and if they feed on zombie flesh, they will turn to zombies, then what do you do with a 120lb eating machine that cannot die?

Buy a sign that says protected by such and such security alarm. Cost 15 dollars.

Nothing like a 12 gauge pump action shotgun to strike fear in the heart of any intruders. The handguns are only there to give you time to get to your shotgun. So I would add the shotgun to number 4. Load it up with 00 buckshot.

Number 2, but then I really don't dwell on this subject too much.

What an idiotic post. Any shooting my be proven justified, any death resulting from a self-defense shooting is investigated and treated like a murder until it is proven otherwise.

Without a second thought? Seriously? The financial and legal implications are huge. One must be certain of the threat and it's potential lethality before choosing to use lethal force in self defense. Not all states have "Castle Doctrine" legislation.
