8. Trade gun fights for sword fights.
First of all, if the homeonwer has a machete, there's no reason why the assailants would not avail themselves to similar weaponry.

But even so, you're still reduced to a physical contest of strength against your attackers. The sword allowed the medieval knight to hack down peasants with relative ease, but they could still pull him down from his horse and kill him, especially when they brought pikes to the fight.

You can choose to return to the middle ages and trade gun fights for sword fights if you want, but myself, I'll stick with a firearm. I'm not as spry as I once was.
