    Warning to would be robbers
    Pros and cons, IMO. It's a feel-good, surely, but whether it's actually achieving the intended goal is open to question. I'd think robbers that enter such a home would be far more willing to come in blasting, if they're forewarned they're about (or very likely) to meet gunfire. Personally, I'd prefer them to underestimate the target.

    ^^I've been wondering about things like this... just how innocent do you want to look though? do you want "save the whales" stickers and peace signs decorated throughout your cars or home? or do you want to have NRA stickers and a "don't tread on me" flag outside (local house has one ha)? 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?

    When the Tornado destroyed Tuscaloosa last year we lived right on the edge of the rampage and had some damage (stupid tree decided my house should be a convertible) I put a "you loot I shoot" sign that I spray painted on my front yard. It was interesting to say the least.

    Comes down to each their own....

    Some believe such signs/flags deter home invasions.......

    Some believe such signs/flags invite home invasions.......

    Food for thought many posters on this forum have stated that no weapons signs at businesses invite criminals. Seems a sign saying one is armed would deter criminals..... Just saying.......

    I always wondered:

    If your home and car are trashed and you're ordered to evacuate to a crisis shelter which is a legal gun-free zone, like a local school....what do you do with your gun?

    I personally don't like the signs that imply there may be a firearm inside,IMHO A lot of burglars will just watch your house til you leave for work etc and then break in and look for your gun/guns to steal

    boy that would be great, they better eye the neighbors too, they're a bunch of leathernecks that like weapons too and we have a good ole time talking weapons, and do our yards together.

    I'm willing to err on the side of it being a precaution. If it's a 'professional' burglar, as opposed to a theft of convenience, probably nothing you can do about it anyway. Besides, if they have truly been casing my house out, they will have seen me leaving for the range with different, uh, bundles, at least once a week.
    But, I'm willing to bet if it's just someone searching for open windows and doors, they'll be far less willing to risk it. And, if either group decides to break in, they better bring some good tools to break into my Liberty, anyway. Oh, and get past the two dogs and home alarm.
    It's not the quiet guy I'm scared of. It's the guy slamming a machete down on the end of his desk screaming that he's gonna kill the next person who sneezes. Or something along those lines.

    Luckily, the pistol is pretty universal.

    Putting their severed head on a pike out front works pretty well around here.

    The bravado of such signs is lame in my opinion. They will do more harm than good and possibly invite a break in.

    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.
