Chain link fence. Keeps most people out. Let's other people see in.
I recently surrounded my yard with black vinyl-coated chain link fence, and it looks fairly nice. It completely eliminated trespassing issues........

That's why I have Rotweillers & an alarm system on an uninterruptable power source (UPS). The alarm autodials me & LE/Fire via cell phone and sounds a 180 Db Klaxon.

I have some very nice and thorny roses up close to the back house windows windowsill high.

I might be the exception, but for the few times that there have been attemped or successful break ins, within a block of my house, everyone targeted had the opposite of my set up. I've been told by my LEO friends that my property would most likely be passed on by amatures.
My place is more trouble to get out of, then into, in many aspects. And the Video is obvious and out of reach of the amatures.
Then again, I've put a lot of G-2 into my defense in layers.
Never post anything (sign or stickers on your vehicles or property - yes, even NRA) that announces you own firearms.......
Things that help block views of the home do so whether the occupants are residents or intruders. Always have, always will.
To me there's a limit to how much I want to change my lifestyle to reduce risk. I live in a wooded lot, and except for winter it's pretty private. It's one of the reason I bought my house. Yes, I could live in a fishbowl...but that's not for me. I gotta live my life so I can enjoy it....Some things just aren't worth worrying about (at least to me, to other, well, to each their own).
One word..... Claymores. :D

I used to have blackberry bushes. They are the most awful bushes I have ever dealt with. They have thorns, thick foliage as well. A deer was eating the berries once and one of my dogs saw it and started barking. It tried to hurtle the bushes and landed 1/2 way in them. After a great deal of difficulty it emerged and was bloody from the things. They are lethal

To all those that say gun signs are advertising, I would say they no more advertise you have valuables (in this case guns) in your house than an alarm company sign. After all, nobody pays an alarm company to protect a house without valuables.
I have had a sign for years, and many people that I know have had the same or the "never mind the dog, beware of owner" signs and have never beer robbed. Growing up we had the Honeywell security (top of the line at the time) signs and system...and we're robbed twice.
The repeat robbery probably happened because they found things of value in the purse and where there's smoke there's fire. If your logic is that criminals re target houses where they expect to find guns, don't use a gun safe because the criminals will be back when you are home to bludgeon the combination out of you. You'd rather they just get the guns the first time.
And finally, Mas Ayoob is on the board of the SAF, do you think they would basically give the stickers away if he didn't approve?
Anyway, you are free to keep your opinions and I will keep mine. I will post back up after the meth heads looking for the absolute fastest money possible have cased my house for weeks to find out when I am not home to rob me. Keep your eyes peeled to this thread. Should be any day now.
My shop has a sign on the door that says, SMILE FOR THE CAMERA. I watched a meter reader turn around and look for the camera. LOL
Across the highway from me are two businesses. i told the owners they should leave the porch light off or use a motion sensor. if the lights are off, and i see light, I will check it out. If they are on always there is nothing to catch my attention. I have an indoor switch on my motion lights so i can slip out quietly and investigate any disturbance in my yard without losing the advantage of surprise. I spotted one guy in my yard one night, he was about to take a leak in the dark, i was watching him with night vision. He pulled it out and I stage-whispered "put that away or I'll shoot it off". I swear his shoe soles left melted rubber tracks in my dirt. Found a free gas can and hose in the morning.
I don't always have nothing to say, but when I do, I post it on Facebook.
