Home invasion: some useless advice
Here is advice from Simplisafe Security Sellers. Put a deadbolt lock on a closet and retreat there, then use your cellphone to call for help. I guess it never occurred to them that a modern closet door (and for that matter, most interior doors) are nothing but two very thin sheets of plywood that would be easily broken by a kick.
But don't grab a weapon, not even pepper spray! "They all sound like a good idea, but again, we don't know how the burglar will react to seeing an armed person." No, but we can probably predict how he will react to the impact of 1.25 ounces of 00 buck.
