    I don't believe it is paranoid to be prepared. Even the most rural areas aren't immune to roving bands of thieves, home invaders, and sexual deviants. My yard is pretty well lit, but I will be adding more light. We have 2 dogs that raise an absolute fit if anyone enters the yard...better than an alarm system. We have guns and have discussed what we will do in the event of an intruder. Suffice to say we will not be roll over victims.

    I also agree with the idea of keeping your preps under wraps. If people don't know you have a year of food and other supplies they will be less likely to target you. To me the best camoflague is to hide right out in the open...

    Had my wife read the article that BB posted, and told her I thought she was getting complacent. When I came home from work, the .357 was sitting beside her, within arms reach! Thanks BB!!

    This is the first book ever published to explain how to capture that most dangerous animal: man. Based on Ragnar's own mantrapping experiences while on special assignments in Asia, Africa, North and South America and Cuba, this gut-wrenching book covers such mantraps as the Malaysian Hawk, the Andes Mountain Trail Trap, the Sheepeater's Rock Fall and the Cuban Water Trap. To know how to trap your enemy is to know how to avoid being trapped yourself. For academic study only.

    Sad thing is, one has to be real real careful with booby traps..
    Poor guy in Miami kept getting his warehouse broken into..
    Rigged his grates on the top of his business with 220 volts..
    Wet the A.O.. Whoops..
    Perp grabbed grates to break in, so sorry bout his luck.. Fried..
    He was charged with murder, do not know how much time he got..
    Clean up real fast if you use booby traps..

    I thought that's what the Everglades and shovels were for.

    Had a friend when I was younger who specialized in explosive devices. (NOT certified in any way, shape, or form.) Kind of a good hearted evil genius if you will. He did some work for a local used car lot. The owner of the lot was tired of the cars having their stereos stolen, so my buddy took a bunch of mid grade car stereos and wired a small explosive device into each of them. Then he put them back into the cars without any power wires being hooked up. The theory was that once stolen the new owner would install and once he hooked up the positive wire, it would blow a nice gaping hole in their car dash. Unfortunately he wasn't thinking that he was not getting at the thief, only the end buyer who could be anyone. He stopped the practice, but apparently it did do some good, as the break-ins definitely slowed for a few months. Of course later on, the car lot owner finally broke down and got a good camera set-up to try and record the thieves.
