We've got most of that covered.
1). We have ADT
2). Our dogs are Large Bladder, African Veldt, Weasel dogs. Cute when young, but they will attack a she-lion if she's carrying prey. Oh, we have to shop for their dog food at only one store on the far west side. It sells the only brand that tastes like a fresh kill. They got the nickname "large bladder" because once they hunker down to attack they will not move for anything but prey.
3). Both my wife and I shoot--and shoot again as needed.
We laugh about the cops coming to our house to chalk the body of an intruder. The lead detective will swear, "Yikes, I was sure this perp had a left leg when we got here..."
The little girl is my favorite. A solicitor going from house to house foolishly rang our doorbell. I looked at the little girl and she had the thousand yard stare of 'dead eyes.'
Call first if you drop by...
Here, 70% of home invasion fall into somewhat defined categories.
Biggest, guys, gang or not, hitting a house selling drugs for the drugs and money.
Most of those don't even get reported unless someone is hospitalized or killed.
The second largest is gang related to the above reason but to include vengeance on the occupants.
Third is drug addicts needing money and to stupid to realize people are at home, they (perp.) get shot the most.
Anyone breaching my door/doors won't know, but they will have run into tremendous firepower.
It would be a very low percentage that survived that would come out into the country foraging,
and would be terminated quickly.

if a force of 30-40 comes screaming over the hill at the homestead.. will likely just give the broken arrow signal.. do as much damage and pick off what you can from 800 yds whilst the women and children retreat.. then fade away and guerilla the sh*t out of them at night.. which is why we would not store all our supplies in the houses, worst case they burn the whole place, and would have emergency shelters several miles away. communication and scouting within the ten mile radius would limit this, but anything is possible...

I agree that being heavily armed with training and good sense is necessary to deal with marauders, but they won't get you far without constant, (24/7), observation of the area around what you're trying to protect.
This type of gang relies on stealth and surprise to avoid a direct shootout with their targets. For example, what if you had a wife and they somehow kidnapped her for ransom? That's just one example of many possible ones. All I'm saying is, don't think your guns are going to guarantee deterrence of these gangs. And even if you understand this and are prepared for it, how many others in your parts would become victims because the gang is expert at finding and exploiting the small chink in their armor?
