I wouldn't listen to any of us on here. Consult your lawyer.

We just had a young fellow that I new who was just shot dead. He was inside someones car in broad day light. The girl saw him in her car and yelled to her freind who was inside the house.He ran out with a hand gun and shot him six times. He is now charged with second degree murder pending his trial. The victim was unarmed though news report said he had a ski mask on. I new this young man and it's belive he was trying to retreive items from his x-girl freinds car. This was really a said situation. I attended his funeral last friday. He was in college with a 4.0 grade avg.

Dont make the sign serious, Just let it be informative yet with a light harded attitiude.

Something like this: If violators or trespassers ever wish to walk again I would recommend turning around and running away before your legs will be amputated by use of an 12 gauge Buck shot.

It isn't to smart to rob someone in a ski mask

Just that there are times I leave the trailer on the side of the house with the equipment on it when I worked a long day and don't put it in the garage.
If you shoot, shoot to kill, then drag the body inside.

My grandfather told me this, unsure why you drag them inside but he was retired military and knew what he was talking about.

You shoot them in the leg then they will just sue you... shoot to kill...

Because inside your house, you have more rights in how you defend yourself. And this also was taught in college Law Enforcement classes in the 70s.

This is called the "Castle Doctrine" Be aware it may not be applied in all states as each state differs in self defense justification.


It's still taught in LE classes today.

Consult your lawyer.
