I realized after I wrote the post that I had forgotten about the time of night. Totally agree that someone knocking at 1am would certainly have them more on guard. This also is a small friendly town though. I think the only way that they would’ve KNOWN something was really off was if they recognized the person. I could be wrong, but Barron seems like the kind of town where if someone came and asked to use your phone because their car broke down, or your neighbor rang your bell late at night because of an emergency that most people would be happy to help. But i definitely agree that a family more in the country may grab a gun to check the door late at night just to be safe not even thinking anything is wrong. #locksmithnottinghamprice

This kind of stuff goes down really fast and I am sure most people panic and don't always make the most logical move. On the part of the father, confronting the intruder might have been his only choice if he couldn't get to his guns in time. Or it might have been a reflex action to go towards the intruder rather than pick a different strategy. Because he may not have had time to do something else. In hindsight, maybe he could have run for the daughter's room and put her out the window and told her to run then taken his stand there. Who knows. But he didn't have the luxury of thinking through scenarios. Most people go into flight or flight mode. For men, it is usually fight mode by instinct and for women flight mode. So he confronted the intruder and they hid. For the mother and daughter, hiding in a room and locking the door, like the bathroom, might have been a panic instinct rather than trying to get to guns that they may not have been comfortable using or loading or that they weren't sure they could get to in time. #locksmithsherwoodnottingham

I'm picturing this: You live in a rural area. Lots of animals and such. You have guns. They make you feel safer, but you have never had to use them on a person. You have never experienced a home invasion. You hear a noise or knock and go to peek outside, expecting a raccoon. Imagine the horror to find a man trying to GET INTO YOUR HOUSE. Your wife and child are in the kitchen. If you go for the gun you are running past them. Instinctively you hold your ground between your family and the invader, screaming at your wife to call 911, grab the gun, get back or whatever. She is slow to respond in her own shock, and instead yells "Huh?" or "Why?" In the meantime the guy starts kicking the door. You scream "What the fuck!? What are you doing?!" Still slow to realize how imminent the danger is, and in shock at the sudden turn of events. You still don't move away, still instinctively standing in front of the door because YOUR CHILD IS NOW RIGHT BEHIND YOU. You tell her to get back, but she isn't comprehending what's in front of her. None of you are. And then it's too late.

Our Go The Extra Mile Service often makes such a huge difference to the feel of the locking system entirely, leaving even old doors feeling new. All curtesy of Locksmith Nottingham.

We are very proud of the fact that we are the oldest locksmiths Nottingham founded and still operating in the city. Originally the business was created as Lock & Safe Radford and operated out of a small workshop behind the family home on Radford Blvd in the heart of Nottingham. During this period of time Radford was a thriving working class area with a factory on every corner including famous sites like Players Cigarettes & Rayleigh Bicycles and the family business thrived providing and maintaining secure locks for factory gates and doors and safes and lock rooms for the workers wages to be stored and payed out from. In the late 1970's the business had out grown the humble workshop and a dedicated shop, workshop and warehouse was opened just down the blvd in Lenton in a purpose built modern unit. At this point in time the business had changed, the focus on safes and there maintenance and supply had now gone. Modern banking saw workers payed direct into bank accounts and not the beloved brown envelopes they used to collect in person and most of the factory's had now closed or had moved production out of the area so the name changed and become LS Locksmiths Nottingham to indicate we were more then just lock and safe people but that we encompassed the whole security side for both commercial and domestic customers during this time the Nottingham locksmiths were in the hands of two second generation locksmith brothers. With the advent of the internet the business saw the foresight of being able to offer products, services and even training online and LockSmart was born, in keeping with the original Nottingham locksmiths name the L & S stands out proud. LockSmart Locksmiths is LS Locksmiths just like it was once Lock & Key Radford always evolving but keeping one thing the same... we will always offer the customer the best service at the very best price that's why we've lasted so long and are the oldest locksmith Nottingham.
