    The downside of gaming with a headset on.

    So I was just thinking, I PC game with my headset on pretty much always.
    The downside of this, is what if someone breaks into my house?
    I probably wouldn't be able to hear shit, especially if the thief doesn't make much noise.
    My PC gaming set up is upstairs, and I live alone, though I do have my girl over quite a bit.
    Usually not gaming when she's over but still. I got a Bull Mastiff, but he's still a pup.
    Vet said he should grow to anywhere from 180-200 lbs., so I would imagine once he's an adult that should scare the fuck out of an intruder.
    Debating on getting an alarm system, but don't need any more monthly charges.

    I have guns and all that, but if I don't have the element of surprise those are pretty much useless.

    Thoughts?

    You don't need a actual alarm system like a company go to Home Depot you can get these little things you put on your doors that when they are armed and loose contact they give off a super loud alarm/noise they are meant to scare people away they also work on windows

    I never game with headsets, I don't understand how people can do it. I bought one before and I only used it for the mic, never put it on my head. Also your dog will bark if someone breaks in, you can probably hear that.

    Build a little shaft under the desk by your leg so in case it doesn't happen and the thief is just a guy that's unarmed then you will have the advantage, also if you do what versa said it would help your problem a lot.

    You could set up your own security system for under 200$ I'm sure, you could get cameras from a spy website for like 50$ each, and they go directly to your iPhone or to the program on your desktop.

    Contrary to popular belief you don't have to live in a shitty neighborhood to get your house broken into.
    Would make sense that the majority of houses that get broken into are in nice neighborhoods.
    Why would someone want to rob a ghetto ass house that probably has no good loot?

    What are the chances sm1 is gonna break in your house?

    If you have a car parked outside, someone has to be a real stupid fuck to try that.

    Trust me Dave, people are stupid.
    When I was about 11 or 12 and living in an apartment in South Boston, this nigger climbed our fire escape and tried crawling through our kitchen window.
    The light was on, and my fucking dad was in the kitchen. Well poor blacky didn't realize he was breaking into a Marine's house.
    I hear this this ruckus, so I get up and check it out and my dad is pulling this dude through the window then he proceeds to bounce his face off the counter.
    Was scared shitless, though now that I think about it shit is funny as hell. Haha the cops found a crack pipe on that nigger too.

    Btw, I have a 1 car garage so..
