    Blatant premeditation--just saying. You know a prosecutor would.

    I fly the "Don't tread on me" also NRA on every door. In the Milwaukee Area, you bet I want to be noticed and left alone....it works!

    You have just advertised that there is something even more valuable in the home than the typical home furnishings.

    I really question the mentality of those who want to advertise their guns to the world.
    I couldn't agree with you more. I want to maintain the element of surprise.

    It's the same with the folks that want to run off the home invader with racking the shotgun. The first sound to be heard from my shotgun will be boom.

    Well, so far it has, but so has my complete lack of the same.

    What do you guys think would be a good middle ground to where you don't look like a target for a random burglar but also don't look like a threat to one that is ready to shoot?
    IMO, it's about being under the radar, avoiding both "innocence" (naivete, likely target) and bristling advanced warning. IMO, it's about the simple lifestyle and tactics changes we can make in our daily lives that can make a world of difference, without advertising much.

    While at home: having garaged vehicles; having videocams (or at least fake ones); having a decent-sized dog; having a decent perimeter / early-warning warning system; having neighbors involved and aware of the neighborhood's traffic patterns and "kosher" visitors.

    While out and about: having good awareness; keeping an eye on strangers; avoiding risky spots (ie, don't lollygag upwind of a blind hedgerow); doubling up with others, whenever possible; shoot-n-scoot (ie, avoiding heads-down attention grabbing activities; aka get-r-done).
    Your best weapon is your brain. Don't leave home without it.

    My response to unwelcome visitors will speak volumes when read in the next morning paper or when seen "Breaking News Alert", Home Invasion Stopped by Homeowner!!!! I don't think any "sign" could top that....JMO
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    Only sign we have.

    If someone were to break in they will quickly learn the error of their ways.
