    Don"t let stupid be your skill set....

    And Shepards we shall be, for Thee, my Lord, for Thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand, So that our feet may swiftly carry out thy command,
    And we shall flow a river forth to Thee, And teeming with souls shall it ever be,

    Yellow vests should make easy to see targets.

    Why would any group of utility workers ever have to have access to one's home?
    People have to keep their SA working...even at home.OMO

    Unless I called in a problem, they are not getting into my home. If I did call in a problem, they will show proper ID before entering my home.

    My guess... and I'm only guessing here, is that the vests and utility worker outfits were meant to mentally disarm them for only a moment. A guy with a tool belt (assuming) and a bright colored utility vest knocks on the door.... for 1.) the neighbors probably don't think anything suspicious of it, and 2.) the homeowner probably thought, "huh, wonder what these guys want" and open the door innocently thinking nothing of a threat at all. Once the door is opened it would be easy enough to push your way inside.

    Vs.. a couple strange guys show up in civilian clothes and knock on the door. The owner looks out.. see's a few guys he doesn't know and maybe his guard goes up.

    They just need a little bit to get you off balance, and then they land their blow.

    My electric meter, gas meter and phone box are all outside. Two of them in the back yard where the dog is. Phone company doesn't come out unless I call. Electric meter sends signal for meter usage. If my electric needs work it is done by two brothers I have known for 30 years.

    I think I would tell them to get lost, and then make sure I paid attention to where they went what vehicle they got in ect. If it looked fishy would call 911.

    Although for most folks who remain in condition white, zepoll is probably correct.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.
