I have a hallway that is approximately 8 yards long. I have 2 bedrooms on the North side of the Hallway; 1 Bedroom/Office at the West end of the Hallway and a Bathroom on the South side of the Hallway.
I’ve talked to my family about using the Office area as the assembly area (the office has a large closet behind the bathroom wall). However, the first Northside bedroom is close to the dining area which has a sliding & french door combination. Moving from this first bedroom would take valuable time for my Son to move to the end of the hall. I do have door braces we can use for both bedrooms which I could have my family utilize while I take my weapons to the office area to protect the hallway. I have a handgun and Kel-Tec Sub 2000 carbine with high capacity magazines.
This might sound funny, but I have a 180 round battery operated BB gun that fires at 240 fps like a machine gun and could be used as suppressing fire until the family can move to a safe space where I can utilize my regular firearms.
I’d like your opinions on how to properly protect the hallway and your thoughts on using the office area for family assembly and defense.
