Simple infantry tactics.
Three day siege. some H&I fire to deprive you of sleep and peace.
Direct, smart, simultaneous assault from multiple directions at the right time, or multiple times.
He doesn’t have the means to sustain a 24 X 7 X 360 degree multi-layered defense.
there is no way he and his family of four (guessing) could keep ‘me’ and my band of marauders from taking ‘you and yours’ in three days/ 72 hours. he simply cannot control the order of battle or its tempo. I can. It is simple to war game this.
Besides, piss ‘me’ off bad enough, and I’ll burn/smoke you out.
BTW, your .22 is laughable against what I would use. with what I have, If I can see you, you are in range. Not true for your .22 And I have NVG.
a family cannot defend their suburban homestead. period.
In truth I and mine will not be the ones who come for this guy. REAL barbarians will.
by staying, you condemn your family to die in place.
p.s. I read the article. He may have a good plan, but it’s not there, and he makes no reference to it.

You’re a wild dreamer!
Where would you get your trained, armed troops?
Stealth is the only answer to security. Nothing to know, no one to know it. Keep it that way.
Well stated. If we break down to that level, then I’m just out of luck. Yes, I could probably defend against a haggard guy, but what about two ex-cons...maybe. How about when they come back with 7 or 8. The point being, unless you can kill each attacker and each group of attackers as they arrive and then bury the bodies without anyone knowing anything has happened (i.e., dead rabbits tell no tales), then you will be eventually overwhelmed - and of course killing and burying everyone is not possible - unless you’re a drug lord (I saw a show on that). It just can’t have a happy ending.
If things break down to a Mad Maxx type situation (and I dont think they will), we can predict what will happen based on real life. Take Somalia for example. Lone rangers don’t last long. Those in groups do OK, the better armed and organized groups either merge or kill each other. Warlords start to appear and they absorb/kill smaller groups. They want to grow to become more powerful than their enemy. If you want to survive you will be a member of one of the warlord’s militia. The warlord establishes the laws and enforces them. You either fight for, work for, or pay taxes to them. That’s how it always plays out. You can try to stay off the radar but that is very hard to do as the militia groups will be constantly scrounging for supplies. Once they find you it’s game over unless you join and the price of admission is everything you have.
Don't overrate the enemy; that's as harmful as underestimating them. Just as car thieves could pop the lock on my car but instead simply walk on by and search for one that is unlocked and easier, I don't think there will be many organized bands of zombies staging a multi-day siege. If they get rebuffed from kicking in the door, they may try a real attack. If that leads to casualties, I expect them to simply leave. Remember, I don't have to defend my wife, my children, my food, and my home from you. I have to defend against someone lazy, untrained, and unskilled enough that he has chosen to be a predator. That is a MUCH easier task, especially if they know they can find an unarmed grandmother (or even easier, a liberal) to rob in the next neighborhood over.
