My bedroom is where I keep my sword collection and all my Historical European Martial Arts gear, so I could launch a defence from there appropriately.
I don't have any decent firearms as they require hard earned licenses and great wealth to obtain (plus my training is limited to shotguns and only partially).

I have:
- Blunt/sharp high carbon steel swords.
- Riveted maille haubergeon (half-sleeved shirt).
- A few bows with a quiver of assorted field arrows.
- Synthetic HEMA gauntlets.
- Hard plastic HEMA splinted arm guards.
- 16 gauge steel greaves
- Air rifle and .22 calibre pellets in their hundreds.
- Knee and elbow pads.
- Hunting knife with belt sheath for any close-play melée.
- Other knives and daggers for fellow defenders.
- Hatchets and billhooks for fellow defenders.

And finally a lockable front door so I can get all that bloody kit on!
If attack is imminent, I would just grab a sharp sword and hope God and my training save me till dusk.
