    Alert- Middle TN

    Apparently some creepy dude(s) are knocking on people's front doors while talking on their cell phones. Once the home owners answer the door, the perp just walks away. Some home owners are following these guys trying to figure out why they are just walking away. It's pretty clear that their casing for potential homes to rob. This has been happening in Williamson County and other middle TN counties. Just a heads up!

    Wow. They're not even pretending to be looking for a lost dog or at the wrong house. I guess that makes it easier to assume they're up to no good than if they fed you a line about something else.

    Well here ya go. Breaking news in Franklin,TN. This happened in my in-laws neighborhood this morning at 10a. It's a upper middle class neighborhood. This is one of my biggest fears when I'm home alone in the shower. I'll be changing up my game now.

    Down here in S. FL we have the "pillow-case" burglars who break into homes and cart everything off in the homeowners' pillow cases. Three made a mistake of breaking into an occupied home (owner was sleeping) and got caught. One 18+ and two juveniles. I hide all my pillow cases to make it tough on them.

    goddam it, I just watched Colion Noir's video on home carry and was thinking I don't need to go that far. but fat lot of good a home arsenal does when you get caught nekkid in the shower at gunpoint! Granted, I don't live in Franklin, but I think it helps to keep the house as plain looking as practicable no matter where we live. I do plan on moving a bit more north into Hendersonville but they do seem to get their fair share of home robberies and then some.

    Oh, and just looked up the subdivision; looks like a new-ish subdivision filled with half-million dollar homes.

    I've had a couple of funny instances here in SE TN. Sitting in the car the other day, waiting for my wife. A couple of colorful characters were waltzing around the small parking lot. I have tint on my windows, so I guess they weren't looking too hard. Looking around, they tried my passenger door, then saw I was there. Had my iron at the ready. Got me thinking about these guys that are stupid or desperate or both. What if one had pulled on me out of panic. I didn't used to keep the radar on nearly as much as now.

    Had two guys knock on the front door. It was dark, and unless you looked closely, one might think no one was home. I answered, M&P45 on my belt, but left the storm door locked. They claimed car trouble, but neither one of these two 20-somethings had a cell, despite driving a late model SUV. Told them I'd call the SD for them. THey said thanks. No one found when the deputy showed up. Probing, I think is what this is called.

    Be safe out there, fellas.
