Hey guys,


Just filed my income tax and I'm getting 5,500 back in income. I've been planning of getting home security / home defense for my home. I've planning it for sometime now. I've have my eye on this.. http://www.dpmsinc.c...ucts/?prod=5763, well, the civilian version of this. I've price one out for a little under a grand. What ya think??

I went a slighlty different route with an alarm with siren and a few sensors and for when I am home a Glock Model 27 (Mini Glock) and find it suits my needs, you however appear to fear a hostile takeover by a large group of renegades it would seem, looks like a "fun" solution to home security.

Both are good and will work well as long as the system it is connected to is programmed correctly

Recently NC changed the castle law so that you can protect yourself and your belongings and loved ones in a better (to me) fashion now, no more strict rules on them being 100% inside and posing an actual threat by pointing a gun for example, instead now if they are on your property without consent they can be considered a threat or potential threat and you are allowed to protect against said threat. Obviously there is a bit more to it but that's basically how it works now which is much better I feel. You can now also protect your car and workplace and such, the info is here for those interested or that live here in NC (Mark for exampe) http://www.freerepub...s/2813483/posts

They did the same thing here, in mizzery. The thieves here are a little miffed about though. They have to actually work at it now. :Its about time:

Soon the crimianals will file a law suit stopping all this madness of self protection!
Or, they will use it in their defense saying, "I had to shoot the person I was robbing, in order to protect myself because the person I was robbing was going to kill me"!

This is true, but the wounded and the ones wanting to commit crimes will. Or some lawyer.

I've recently been coveting this guy: http://ruger.com/pro...ard/models.html but not for home defense. The reason I don't want to use it for home defense is I think the nato round delivers too much energy and is a higher risk of going through the walls and hitting an unintended target (5.56 is supposed to be able to penetrate 1/8in of steel 600m away). For home defense I use a cz75 with hollowpoint rounds with less energy and penetration. A shotgun would probably be far better, but I can't find a reasonable way to secure it from the kids while keeping it accessible to myself in case of emergency like I can with the pistol.

You guys in CA still have a 10 round magazine limitation, right?

One more thing to add.. If you do nothing else, get some of those yard signs/window stickers that say you have a monitored alarm system (even if you don't have the actual system). Everything I've read indicates those silly things are probably the best preventative there is...

I know this post is over a year old, but I had mine Ar15 since February 2012 and customized and look really nice now. For home security goes, I just bought a 16 channels cctv system for my home and in the process of routing the wires from all the camers to the dvr. I bought the unit off ebay and the brand is called "Elec". Its an off brand, but I will give out the review as soon as I hqve it hook up.

What would it take to get you to post a pic of your AR? I would like to see what mods you have applied to it.

Hey Ken,


I just just got minor mod to it. I replace my stock hand guard to a qual rail free float hand guard with a UTG foregrip and a Bushnell scope and a fake surpressor. I am saving up for a .50cal Beowulf upper, .410g shotgun upper, and a CMMG .22l conversion kit. I've should of bought it before the Sandy School shooting. Most or all is either backorder or high price. I've still have a whole brick of Remington .22l ammo, so planning to get the .22l conversion kit within a few months. The 410g shotgun upper is pricey and the .50cal Beowulf is pricey+on backorder. So I hope to get all of my upper within 2 years.


My SSD took a dump on me so I can't upload my pictures using my Note 2. I will figure a way to upload it when I get off work.

Sorry to hear about your SSD. They still make me nervious so it will be a while before they find thier way into my case, besides anymore about all I do with my computer is e-mail and browsing.

Hey Ken,

It's been a while now since I got my AR. I added more modification to it. So here's the pic of it now. I like it a lot. I got the CMMG .22lr conversion kit so now I can shoot both .22lr and .223/5.56.
