Default My worst fear...

My worst fear is having to fight off roaving street gangs. Everyone except me is "Going To The Mountians".. I live in the country not in town. Cities will be raped, robbed, looted and burned to the ground just like they are doing right now. All the bad guys have dope and guns and nothing to loose except their freedom. If you build a prison style fence around your house, it will be like a bill board saying I have good $#!T and I don't want to give it up...

No good solutions. How many days do you think you will have before attention is turned to your area? Will you have time to prepare?

You can create a single means of entry, that gives you only one area to protect. Build a swamp or mud field on one or more sides of your home. Pretty easy if you already have the equipment. You could also drag timber into an area making it impassible, at least to vehicles. Inexpensive man traps can be built in advance and deployed days before you expect to be targeted. You will need a generator and plenty of fuel to light the areas around your home. Nothing like light to keep the cockroaches away.

The issue is, you cannot stay awake 24/7, you will need help.

Broken glass covered in human crap is cheaper and probably a little more quiet. Ever noticed the groovy broken glass-topped walls in the old part of the New Orleans French Quarter; it ain't decorative.

I think a couple of Robo Cops should take care of any situation.

But we only have one RoboCop, and he's not on the forum as much as he used to be.
