Agreed, in a true SHTF scenario, I'm booby trapping my property, woods, and certain areas of my home. Punji pits and all. Especially if it's dark out, I'll just light up the night sky at every noise I hear. I'm not taking any chances.

That way folks can get ready alittle for company. In a shtf, I'm sure even more measures would be worked out.
I beep the horn a couple of times. Holler out and let them know you are there, making yourself a clear target with your hands empty and in sight. it's just polite.

If someone calls out for help or knocks on my door, I'll answer politely. If someone peeks in my windows or tries to get into my garage or pilfers my garden, I'll assume they're not friendlies.
