How to Protect Your Home from Looters When All Hell is Breaking Loose

Article kindly provided by Danny Major of Alpha Survivalist

Proper home protection and self-defense is essential when it comes to situations when resources are scarce and looters might be lurking around town. If you don’t want your home to be broken into, it is very important to take all the proper precautions required in such cases.

Fortifying your home is important, but simply not enough in most cases. You also have to be careful about how you protect your home, what resources you store in order to avoid having to go out too often, and how to protect yourself against intruders who have already breached your front door.

Replace All Doors and Windows

It’s important to start by replacing doors, windows, gates and fences. Everything that might be used as an obstacle in the looters’ path should be enhanced.

You can start by replacing your regular windows with strong, non-breakable Plexiglas windows for added resilience. Also, make sure you secure steel bars to your windows to discourage looters from breaking in. This might seem like a desperate measure, but it could possibly save your life in the event of a riot.

Another option is to replace your locks. A lot of looters will find it easy to get past regular locks either by breaking them or using special devices to open them. However, a strong deadbolt is a whole new level of challenge altogether.

In most cases, possible intruders will be discouraged and move on to the next house, when they see that you have a heavy deadbolt in place. At the very least, you’ll give them a hard enough time to delay them and give yourself a chance to defend your home.

Carry a Weapon and Know How to Use It

Firearms are good for self-defense, but they’re also very useful in scaring off looters. No one wants to risk their life to get possession of a few trinkets and supplies that they can get with a lot less hassle and endangerment elsewhere. In short, if you’re armed and ready to defend your home, most assailants will immediately get the message and go elsewhere without hesitation. Of course, this can only happen if you actually have a license to carry a gun.

But did you know that the vast majority of the population can’t tell the difference between a real gun and a well-designed replica? This can be used to your advantage particularly if you don’t have a firearm license.

Buy a perfect replica of an intimidating hand gun or rifle, and point it at any assailant as they try to enter your home. In most cases, this action alone will have the desired effect.

Use Camouflage and Illusion to Your Advantage

A measure that isn’t usually discussed is the use of camouflage. When you’re trying to survive a SHTF type situation, there’s no guarantee that rioters and looters won’t enter your home at some point. So, it’s a good idea to have some measures in place to defend yourself and a good place to hide should they do so.

Hidden rooms are the best choice for hiding places, since potential intruders will not be able to make a valid assessment of the size and shape of your home based on what they see outside in the dark. So a hidden room is perfect for hiding your family and any valuables and supplies you might have.

There are also many benefits to concealed doors, hidden closets and trap doors that lead to secret underground rooms or areas of the basement not readily accessible through regular entrances. Incorporating any of these types of concealment into your home maybe one of the best investments you will ever make!

Food Storage Recipe - Hobo Chicken

This is a really yummy and easy meal to make. Everyone will love this.


 ● 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

 ● 1lb chopped cooked bacon

● 3 chopped potatoes

 ● 3 peeled and chopped carrots

 ● 1 peeled and chopped yellow onion

 ● ½ cup butter

● Garlic salt to taste

Cut four large squares of aluminum foil – large enough to create a foil packet around each chicken breast. Grease each foil square with spray butter and then place a chicken breast in the center of each piece of foil. Divide your cooked bacon among the four packets and sprinkle on top of each chicken breast. Now place your potatoes, carrots and onions on top. Top this vegetable mixture with 2 tbsp. of butter and sprinkle with garlic salt to taste. Fold over your foil to create a tightly sealed packet around your ingredients. Place your sealed packets on your hot coals or your grill and let cook for around 20 minutes. After 20 minutes open up one of your packets to check that your chicken is cooked through. If it is not cooked all the way through, continue to cook for 5 minutes at a time until it is.

Bug Out Bag: What Should a Prepper Pack For Those Critical First 72 Hours

Bug Out Bag: What Should a Prepper Pack For Those Critical First 72 Hours was a free kindle book at the time of this post. 

 here are some people who think that those who create a bug-out-bag (or survival tin) for use in escaping disaster are just paranoid survivalists who always expect the worst in life.

Well guess what? The same people who think that are also the same people who come crying to the survivalists (aka preppers) to help them when disaster strikes - because the "nothing's-going-to-happen" people weren't prepared!

None of us knows what the future holds. Not next year, not next month, not next week, not even today!

Worldwide events show us every single day that by tomorrow (or any time, really) in any given place and at any given time - especially on a local level - our own personal world could be devastated by a man-made or natural disaster.

Don't be taken totally by surprise - BE READY!

Read this bug out bag prepper's guide and find out what you need to have ready - in a moment's notice - to help you survive the first 72 critical hours of most disaster events.

It could mean the difference between surviving - and NOT!

Rechargeable Lightbulbs!!

I found these rechargeable lightbulbs at Lowes  a few weeks ago.You use them as a lightbulb and then if your power goes out these will kick on and last for 3.5 hours! They will flash for a few seconds before they go out all of the way so you can be prepared for the dark! I bought 2 of them. Put 1 in the living room and one in my son's room. They are surprisingly bright, even after the power goes out. I have been using the one in the living room every night. By time I get ready for bed , It goes out on it's own.
