Arizona – -( In this video from South Africa, we see the clear utility of an alarm system and or a dog.

Neither were available in this case, and it was only luck or God that aided the armed residents.  The cats were useless.

With today's technology, audio would be an easy addition.

The residents are armed with revolvers, likely five shot revolvers, because the frame appears fairly small.   It is something to consider that there were three invaders, and the woman fired two shots, without any obvious hits.  Clearly, more firepower is called for.

I believe that it is easier to obtain the very restrictive firearms permits for revolvers in South Africa than for semi-autos.   AK-47s are said to be cheap on the black market, but that does not help law abiding people, who are vigorously prosecuted for “gun crimes”.

The crime rate in South Africa is one of the highest in the world.

    1. Dean, thanks for posting this on
      I receive newsletters regularly and am a South African living in South Africa, and glad the world is seeing this – this type of home invasion is a regular occurrence in our country now. Our Government-run police have just admitted to “losing” more than 3000 weapons in the last three years, 700 in the last year alone!! Now, together with “Gun Free South Africa”, the govt want to impose even stricter regulations for legal gun owners – quite a joke considering they themselves are guilty of “losing” weapons – it is these “lost” weapons that find their way to the criminal element who use them to attack innocent people in their homes. The “cheap” AK47’s you mention were mostly brought here by the govt who were “freedom fighters” before they got power in 1994.

    2. Crimson Trace laser grips are in order here.

      Recommend a used police trade in s&w m&p 9mm and crimson trace laser for front rail.

      Range time too, shoot each week and stay sharp.

    3. I’m glad there were no injuries to the homeowners, but she needs some more range time. Gun control is hitting the target, no matter what.

      1. A trip to the range now and then to practice would help a lot…then all she would have had to do is call the coroner to pickup the cockroaches!
