    Be ready,be quick & go nuts.

    Girl in my work told me the other day her mum had her purse stole from her kitchen when some low life crept in her kitchen door & took it.

    My question is this.
    It's 3am & you know someone has just climbed in your kitchen window,what do you grab that's next to you for protection ?

    I would grab the TV remote from under my pillow :-/

    What would that do lol........

    Ermmm my chair! If I was at Uni but at home ermm only thing I would have to hand would be my extion plugs lol go to town with that! X

    got half a snooker cue next to my bed lol, wouldnt be much use though cos if you caught someone its gonna be hectic and they are gonna see you swinging something like that or a golf club from a mile off.
    Id be getting stuck in with my knuckle dusters

    i'd just put on rebecca blacks friday,

    the would be burglar would soon be running for the exit.

    umm my husband has army knife in his cupboard above our bed and he has 3 samurai swords too. I don't think I would use them though. but with them in my hand I would like to think it may scare them lol Probably not though!

    I would not go and look though. I would just grab it, grab my son and go and sit in my girls room, they can take what they want.

    If you had samurai swords & this guy came in you would have to use it would you not,because he maybe more than just a thief.I wonder if it would be classed as unnecessary force.

    If he did come into my girls room then yes I would like to think I would naturally use it. But I would probably end up the one in trouble for self defence. I would try to avoid a confrontation though at all cost.

    Steel trunking that is lying in my room spare (Has been for over a year now, dont think ill ever move it coz its nice and shiny)

    If someone were to break into my house i reckon id have to give them atleast one broken knee and a sore face if not more.

    Don't forget all - if you do go downstairs and confront the burglar you are likely to get arrested yourself if you cause harm.

    Now, I didn't say don't do it - just carry out the assault, drag unconscious burglar to the bottom of the stairs (or bedroom hallway in a bungalow) and claim you feared for your families welfare when the coppers turn up as he was heading towards the bedrooms.

    PS: Whatever you have, remember that a can of hairspray\deodorant etc gives you a massive advantage at close quarters - a good spray in the eyes and face has surprise and pain elements

    Sounds like experience talking here ?

    My 9mm pistol in one hand and a machete in the other.

    often think about this scenario, sky remote would be best thing I have

    I would just pull my pants down and say to the guy "Lets get started then", it would freak him out.

    id just quicksope him.

    Unless he was that way inclined and just pounced on you and started to . . . well you know

    Or if it was cold, then he may laugh

    Not my personal experience but how the coppers wrote up a friends attack on an intruder (just a prompt here and there as to location of the attack etc). The hairspray\deodorant was also on their advice as it gives you both a surprise and, possible, disabling advantage giving you more time to apprehend\deal with the intruder.

    Got 3 samurai swords in the bedroom, so probably one of them.

    Also got a metal ruler, which i think would hurt quite a bit.

    I'd get the wife to cook him a meal, or is that too bad?

    A dusty electric guitar, or my Force FX replica lightsaber.
    Maybe I would dual wield...

    I should do, I disturbed some in the middle of the night whilst 5m pregnant, i was half way down the street chasing them yelling obscenities, when I stopped and realised, I was naked pregnant and unarmed. I would have knacked them had i got hold of them.
