    It seems like you should put the dog in the front yard. We have a bunch of these people where I live and they do not want to work and its the same people year after year. There are those who have fallen on hard times but are willing to work and then there those who cheat the system and will rob you blind. I think you sent the scumbag and his mother the right message the last time you answered the door.

    The police are never going to do anything about a pack of stolen smokes or two, and all they can do if they catch them there is tell them the same thing as you did, which is "don't come back." You're a nice guy, like many who has been taken for being of kind nature. Myself, being one of those people. We don't want to stop "being nice" to anyone, nor do we want to pass up an opportunity to help someone in real need. But this druggie-duo has obviously made a "bidness" out of decieving and stealing from good people and you have become a target now. In short, don't stop being a nice guy, as someone may one day really need it. On the other hand, next time don't answer the door at all.........let your dog answer the porch.

I have no trespassing and beware of dog (85 lb Doberman) signs which are clearly visible from the street. Yet, this guy comes around about every two months or so with a new sob story looking for a handout. I take the blame for enabling this guy's behavior. I was foolish on several occasions and gave him money just to get him to leave.

    Not long after giving him some money the first time, his mom started coming around using the same M.O.. Being a Christian...I felt it was my obligation to help anyone in need. So I would give them a bible tract and a few bucks. His mom came to the door one day saying how she needed gas money to go get her daughter who was at some hospital. My wife and I gave her $20...after she left, my wife went outside to smoke. The woman had stolen her cigarettes and lighter that were on a small table on the front porch. My wife was infuriated to say the least. We chose to forgive her for that, she seemed so desperate.

    Several months later during a cold snap, they came knocking on the door again needing money for kerosene. I did not have any money at the time to give them, but I had some containers of kerosene that I had picked up at Walmart. I told them to wait on the porch while I retrieved the kerosene. I came back to the front door and they were gone. Needless to say, the light bulb came on for us and we were no longer so welcoming.


    To make a long story short, we moved to a new address. Not long after the move, guess who showed up looking for money? I told them to leave and stop coming to my house. I noticed when they left this time that they did stop at one other house on my street asking for money. After they left there, I walked over and talked to my neighbor who was just visited by these scumbags. My neighbor knows them, he told me about their drug habit and how they would habitually target people that would give them some money.

    So, tonight at about 9:30, while my family and I were watching the Panther's game, I hear a knock. My dog starts barking, I grab my Taurus Pt145 which is in a Fobus paddle holster and I look through the peep hole and this guy is on my porch. I happen to notice a white car parked a couple houses down. I think his mother was driving it. I was not going to open the door, but I remembered how they would steal anything not tied down.

    When I opened the door, his eyes intermediately went to my strong side where my hand was resting on my .45's grip. I instinctively looked at his hands to see if he was brandishing a weapon. Before I could say anything, he started to run down my porch stairs. I raised my voice and told him to leave and to not come back. Minutes later, my wife goes out on the porch to smoke, guess what? Her new pack of cigarettes were mysteriously gone.

    I am so angry and just wanted to vent a little. I welcome any critique or advice on this event...

    maybe this is a sign for her to quit smoking.
    as for the dopers,you'll hear from them again.
    now when you go to the door watch for a crazed gunman blazed-out on crack,
    waving a revolver in your face.
    SEND HIM TO HELL. i mean,defend yourself.

    Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.

    If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.

    I looked at the website for the cigarette loads, they also sell a spray called "Liquid Ass." Don't know how effective it might be on a crackhead , but if the offending party could somehow be discreetly loaded up with that stuff on a shirt, hankie, etc., it could provide some deterrent effect. At least your dog could give you about a city block's worth of warning.

    Answer the door and act like a lunatic by saying random things that make no sense and have nothing to do with one another. People do not mess with people that they believe are crazy (this is how I deal with telemarketers and it is effective. They don't call back). For example, let him say whatever and just stand there 10 seconds and stare at him without moving. Then say things like:

    "It sure is dark in here" (tilt head)
    "I hear butter" (look around)
    scream, "The sea monkey has my money!!!"
    "I like spaghetti...it's squishy"
    start making random farm animal noises (rooster, cow, pig, etc.)
    start singing "Jimmy Crack Corn" as lound and off key as possible

    If none of that works, spray him with the poop spray....or cover yourself with crisco and cling wrap and then answer the door. Many alternatives available....get creative with it.

    "Liquid Ass."


    cover yourself with crisco and cling wrap and then answer the door.


    Great ideas...wonder if the "liquid ass" comes in a SD spray?

    I'm sure my wife would swear that I already have that...and it is well concealed. It's really more effective for sneak attacks (such as dutch ovens and covered wagons) than self defense. As a matter of fact, it could be considered offensive.

    I just never thought I'd hear of a product called "Liquid A$$" as being a solution to someone's problems. Can't wait until the "ShamWow" guy starts advertising it.

    I'm easily entertained...yeah, that's what we're calling it now...as you can see, it doesn't take much. My wife doesn't share my sense of humor...she thinks it's ridiculous that I'm glad to get the now rare telemarketer calls. Hey, they called me, and the object of my little game is to get them to hang up on me. Like I tell her, with me, what you see is what you get...and sometimes, it ain't pretty.
