Did have a friend that had a box with two rattlesnakes that he kept by front door. He thought it amusing to have people, such as myself, go through the roof when they sounded off when they entered. A recording that sounds like this under the steps might work quite well.

(Slightly re-written)

Behind the door the owner keeps a shotgun
He keeps it in the springtime and in the month of may
And if you ask him why the heck he keeps it
Just after you break in he may blow you away
Blown away, Blown away, Just after your break
He might blow you away.

Now understand Mr. Bad dude does not know if you have a shotgun or not.. But as a rule they are cowards and why take the chance.> Them shotguns can mess you up big time. (This last line is an actual quote from an actual criminal).

Our rig has an alarm system. I sometimes forget it's armed and open a door. It gets very noisy and lights flash too. That in add'n to some other devices help in an emergency.

A set of muddy size 14 or larger work boots sounds like a good idea.

Perhaps a couple of dummy M18s with false wiring might get their attention.

Would love to have one of those, we used a few on a night exercise rigged with flash cubes, totally destroyed the incoming intruders night vision.

I like it! But, I would add an NRA sticker as well.

I wouldn't. As was stated earlier, burglars are generally cowards. They will case your place as much as they can from the outside, watch your movements, learn your habits, and if there is an NRA sticker, that means there are guns inside, and they can get good money and/or dope for those.

There are no stickers of any kind on my TV or TT that will give away any of my hobbies, identity, possessions, etc. Anyone that really wants to rip you or me off will figure those things out pretty easily just by watching me or you for a couple of days or a week.

I don't even trust my neighbors anymore since I had some neighbors rip me off not long ago. I treat everyone nicely and with the amount of respect I believe I deserve in return, but I just don't trust them.

Place this sign on your outside door "This coach is protected by a mean and miserable SOB with a loaded Smith and Wesson, a Rugger and a sawed-off shot gun! All are loaded and aimed at your dumb-ass-head. Enter at your own risk."

Or we could use the M18s that have all the C4 removed to heat C-rations.

Let's not forget truck key fob with the red panic button and a can of hornet spray (more effective than a club and won't get you in as much trouble as "whatever")
