1. Could you survive an attack like the one in this video on your location?
2. Could members of your group perform this exercise?

I suppose you realize thats a perfect trap for the attacking force and an exceptionally bad location to place any size force without outliers.
Could I survive this. No: stupidity has consequences
If I had a group. I would expect some discussion.March 2, 2015 at 5:49 am #37763
The likelihood of surviving an attack like that on a residence is pretty slim unless you had fortified walls. Even then it would not help much if you didn’t know what to do after the shooting started. Throw in screaming kids and a hit family member and you have a worst nightmare. Training for such an attack with your group and having obstacles in your yard that would funnel you attackers into shooting lanes would help. Of course that is assuming those pulling security in your group are relatively capable. As Brulen stated having outliers and other perimeter defences would go a long way in giving you the upper hand.March 2, 2015 at 7:48 am #37769
My first thought was of the Rhodesian farmers fending off just these sorts.
Urine poor use of cover. My 10yo could lay waste to them with her .22.
What was that, 1000 rounds fired? Slow aimed fire is much more effective. And keeps heads down just as well.
My “group” such as it is, would be laughing for a while.
With three Afghan vets and two Iraq vets and a solo Vietnam vet, there would be a bunch of arguing as to who would get to have fun with them.
And ooh, look, a $500 Eotec on a $500 AK.
I forwarded the link to one of the guys (SF medic), his comment? The chick with the G3 is the only one that might survive, if she bugged out quick. The rest? Cannon fodder.March 2, 2015 at 2:04 pm #37784
“With three Afghan vets and two Iraq vets and a solo Vietnam vet, there would be a bunch of arguing as to who would get to have fun with them. ” whirly
Thats all nice for them, how about the people on the forum that didn’t spend time in active combat. I think Matt’s response is more realistic, unless you are prepared you will have a difficult time surviving.
Whirly, Your 10 year old? Not unless she had great cover and concealment. 6 on 1 is not great odds.
Tactically whether you agree with their methods or not is not really the point. At my location I would be more concerned about 5-6 guys jumping out of a car in front of the house and making a sprint for the front door. However 5-6 people attacking could still be a consideration, and maybe they will use cover and concealment.March 2, 2015 at 2:56 pm #37786
74, the original post asked about us/our groups.
I put forth my opinion about my chances and what a group member opined. Because of our training, because of their combat experience,there will be disparity between my answer and others, however, that doesn’t make the answer wrong either.
My location has certain tactical advantages, despite it being in town, or perhaps because of that.
She has an evil side, she has always been one of the last ones standing when the kids play paintball, she’s a back-shooter, and pops out of places one doesn’t expect.
She shoots at ping pong and golf balls, and can keep them moving out near 50y.
And we have great cover and concealment as well as firing positions.
And we were discussing this video/situation, not some guys running up from the street for the front door. Each situation is different.March 2, 2015 at 3:11 pm #37789
It doesn’t make it the wrong answer, just not well stated. You make a much better and more instructive answer the second time. I’ll raise your grade a letter.
BTW thanks for the link to Thunder Ranch, I hope everyone watches it.March 3, 2015 at 6:00 am #37842
Think I’ll add a ghillie suit to my preps. Stealth and concealment is more my thing.
