    Sounds more like open carry did the discouraging.

    Thanks for the story, DaveT. Glad for the happy ending.

    That is sweet

    It's to bad that they're probably bothering someone else now.
    Being peaceful does not guarantee peace, strength and a willingness to commit violence when needed does.

    I've done the same thing, on a lesser scale, myself.

    We live near a homless charity (actually really nice folks and not a usually problem), but every once in a while a panhandler who gives me the willies will start up to one of us while working in the front yard.

    I usually just take my cover garment off and keep working... they always go away.

    DaveT, I have just one question, well actually two combined. Are you actually the retired former Chief of the town or was the Chief just doing a little creative embellishment? Either way good job.

    No, he was telling the truth. I am retired, and during my law enforcement career, I was Police Chief here back in 1979, 1980 and the early part of 1981. Left here for a larger department that sent me to SWAT school, something I had always wanted to do. But I was not the Chief here at the time I retired.

    My wife and I moved back here because her family is from here.

    Most folks remember my time served here, but it was such a long time ago. Now there's a whole generation of folks here who weren't around back then and don't know. The current Chief's reminder was most certainly appreciated !!

    Easy solution to the problem.

    Well done!

    Just wait until the renters from hell break into your house while you're not there and you find all your guns missing.

    Well protected that way.

    House is very well secured, gun safe is hidden in a wall and welded into place.

    If someone were to break in, all kinds of alarms would go off, including instant notification to both the local police and Sheriff's Department. My cell would also be dialed.

    Crooks would be on camera by hidden video cameras. so there would be a good record of their presence inside the house.

    At night, motion sensors let me know someone is on the property and motion floodlights are automatic. Backup generator in case the power goes off.

    Then there's the dog....... he really doesn't like strangers.

    Wasn't always this way, but the constant succession of low life's renting the house across the street has given me every reason to stay current with the latest in security technology.

    There is no such thing as 'absolute' security, but what I have set up is better than what most home owners are willing to bear the cost for.
