I would like to state that I hunted cats till I found the one I married. Pound for Pound, she shoots better than me. So, I vote for Cats. Especially spurned cats.

Regarding the 3 second entry into a safe... I can do that easily in complete darkness going only by feel on my keypad access Liberty. Unfortunately, it is also located pretty far from the bedroom... that is why I have strategic hidden holstered weapon locations I can access quickly from any room in the house, and I practice getting them in darkness to stay proficient.

Mild Paranoia is not a bad thing especially when there really are people out to get ya!

You know damn well you can get into one of those fingerprint safes in less than 3 seconds. You're thinking about a big upright safe with a combination.

Wolves are not cats. They are dogs. Size being equal cats will always win in a dog/cat fight. I'm not real familiar with wolverines but I'd guess they have claws like dogs rather than cat type claws which are almost useless when compared to cat claws.

Who knows, if they did it might turn out like the ligers. I don't think they are quite as aggressive as lions or tigers.

Couple things I noticed that are just points of interest.

Cat's are generally solitary hunters... a pack of wolves wins that fight.

Wolves are Lupines and Dogs are Canines.

Wolverines are like a combination of a cat and bear.



Ligers are so big and stupid because they are defective genetically. Their Hypothalamus never stops production of the growth hormone and thus they get as big as they do... they are almost all sterile and considered obese with joint and back problems. There are some exceptions.

Your mom goes to College, Chickens have large Talons, and I am pretty good with nun-chucks.

Oh yea! There is that. It must make up for being obese and stupid.

this has been a real good thread...

boundary layers is a good deffensive tactic for sure and one I use for my property and home..

some guys have never experienced a break in or a threat to where a weapon would be the last line of defense..

around 33 years ago I lived alone in a 3 story appartment building being on the 3rd floor.. at the time I owned several weapons in various calibers and was an avid shooter..
I was introduced to a fella that needed electrical work in his home and I was contracted as a side job...turns out this guy was a total nut case...I did the work as expected and was payed..some of the work entailed brick work which I roughed the electrical in for..the brick layers had just left and this guy calls me and informs me of the work and wants me back NOW to install this heavy exhaust hood which mounts on the brick..I informed him that the mortar needs a few days to set before I can finish up...
he gets very belligerent with me on the phone demanding his money back...I told him no as he still owed me money so lets call it even and leave me alone..with that I hung up...he kept calling..

finaly I was awoken out of a nap from this guy pounding on my door screaming that he wants his lousy 75 bucks back for a $150 job...I didnt answer the door..he went away...thats was around 8:30pm...

around 11:30pm I was waken by noises of someone trying to break in...I can hear a screw driver trying to force the door ajar..( I was a lite sleeper then)..

I imediately pulled out most of my guns and loaded...I had a 9mm that I kept loaded at all times but I wasnt sure if that would be enough...so I loaded a .44 mag...357mag..asorted 22's and my 9mm already to go...thoughts went thru my mind in blistering patterns like..which caliber to shoot this guy with...will it go thru him and kill my neighbor?..so mili seconds later I had the police on the phone...

they caught this guy red handed with a .357 in his belt...the police detective sees all my weapons out ready to go and one in my belt...what he said to me I never forgot(I was 26 at the time)..he said: make sure you shoot him in the frontal area, never in the back or sides and must show threat to do bodily harm....since they caught the guy red handed they didnt need me as a witness...he did serve time and I moved away from there..

what was my line of defence there?...well he broke thru a secure door down stairs...good thing I installed a double lock that used a 2" locking bar that went thru studs...I feel I was lucky that night ...

line of defence now...3 dogs, alarm and assorted weapons that I am completely intimate with placed in strategic locations...I have no children

hope this was a good read...blaze away

I've never seen one, but if you say so. I'm counting the time to get to the safe as well. So if it's right there next to you, it shouldn't be a problem. If it's in the other room like the other guy posted on his full size safe, it's not very convenient and adds quite a few seconds. My dogs/cats/kids/wife are pretty good alarms if they hear something. LOL. I'm not really worried about someone breaking into my house un-noticed. It's not a big house, all the windows and doors lock, doors have deadbolts etc. And where I live, I have a better chance of being struck by lightening.
