A more civilized way to put this....

"Here lies the last dog that crapped in my yard."
(Point the sign toward the direction the perpetrating dog enters from. Put small mound of dirt in front of sign.)

only problem people is that the burgalar could sue you for being hurt on your property or equipment. There was a contiversial case here in KS where a burgalar broke into a mans home in KC and the homeowner shot him in the leg. The robber ended up sue the man and one. The homeowners lawyer told the man that he should have finished off the burgalar. So think twice before you do something stupid.

Dead men tell no tales. And Florida also has the right to shoot laws. Right after Hurricane Andrew, almost all buildings had signs saying looters will be shot. And the police didn't even care, just picked up the body and hauled them off.


Sign you don't want to run into in the woods:

You can defend your life when trying to defend for your property you suddenly fear for your life!

Thumbs up

No peice of equipment is worth a life, yours or theirs.

That being said. I have carried a pistol since 1990 (including 9 years of military service)

Comming from someone who has actually shot human beings, I would always choose to walk away than to fight.

Will I stop (or try to stop) someone from taking my gear? You bet.
But the pistol is not a deterrant it is an exit strategy.

Most theives are cowards, if thy werent cowards they would be hijackers or armed robbers. There mere presence of lights, cameras or the chance of getting caught send 80 percent of theives packing.

Professional theives wont eye your backpack blower, not enough profit.
So that just leaves stupid amateurs who are looking to make a quick buck, or more likely than not, competeting landscapers that need your equiment.

Lock it.

Trimmer trap a couple of cables, yea its apain, you're tired you dont feel like it, but its better than taking or risking life.

Having been in combat ill tell you NEVER broadcast your intentions, if you do the other guy will be ready. Because you told him.

Also there are 50 states and 50 different gun laws, so anything you have seen on this thread is all wrong for you unless it comes from a lawyer with a license to practice in your state who specializes in gun law.

just lock your stuff up... If you arent trained with guns (and if you were trained youd know your states gun laws) dont play with guns.

Forget all that "if you think you're man enough to pull the trigger" stuff...

Here's your problem with the sign:

That just might be construed as premeditated murder.
Just think, 20 to life.

Doesn't mean they have to take your side of the story either.

A dead body is not something I would want around if I were holding the smoking gun.
Could turn into bad news fast, real bad.
