Drawing from experience helping law enforcement, military, private security and people just like you understand how to protect themselves or others, Rob Pincus presents detailed information about planning for, training for and, ultimately, defending yourself and your family from a violent predator inside your home. Though there is a focus on armed defense, fundamentals of security, evasion, barricading, and non-lethal defensive actions are also covered. Pincus stresses the importance of being safe and secure inside your own home, regardless of whether or not you choose to utilize a firearm for protection. Because this book is concept and principle based, the information provided can be practically applied to any home, apartment, or workplace, and any family size or budget.

Explore the importance of practicing home invasion response drills for ensured preparation should an actual event occur, basic survival fundamentals, how defense principles should be adapted based on the layout of your home, and more. Find out how choosing to utilize a firearm for protection fits into the basics of home defense, as well as which types of guns apply to different survival situations. Even if you do choose to use a firearm for protection, introduce yourself to the ways you can add additional security to your home, just in case. Finally, learn principles of reality-based training, so you really know what to do in the moment should a home invasion occur. Whether you live alone, with roommates or family, occupy and apartment, own a house, or want to use a gun for protection or not, discover the crucial fundamentals of protecting your home and loved ones.
