    What other weaponswould you all suggest for home defense when a firearm is not a workable solution due to safety( I live in a mobile home/RV park) because of the nature of thin walls and close proximity of neighbors?

    A reputation as a nut goes a long way in a small community.

    Shotgun shells with rubber shot. I tried them at the range. They seem to do the trick up close. Rubber bullets. Pepper spray. An alarm on windows and doors. Thin board with nails or a bag with broken glass placed at windows. Door jams. A real sword or machete. A bat or mace. A knife or dagger. An evil demon dog. Learn martial arts.

    a large sign saying you have a Rottwieler with Rabies might deter some.

    For sure a good home security system.A couple of dogs patrolling the yard.Bright Motion sensing lights,pepper spray,taser.A bat or a baton(if legal in your area)Hell,even a CO2 gun will hurt.I make sure to have the sheriff's office and local P.D.'s number on speed dial should I ever need it for non-9-11 situations.
    Maybe asking the police,Sheriff's Dept. for more patrols.Or ,you can set up a neighborhood watch with other citizens in your park.

    The responses are very informative, thank you, the sheriffs patrol regularly as the station is less than a mile away,I will look into the rubber slugs for shotgun,I have a katana and a machete,as for the crazy neighbor thing, I have a pentagram on my front door,it scares the crap out of my mostly hispanic and catholic neighbors :D

    A sign which says "Please try not to wake up my pet Rattlesnake."

    Final Net Extra Hold Hair Spray in the small pump bottle.

    (also makes a pretty fine medium grade glue)

    Take a plastic shopping bag, drop a full soda can, or a small

    soup can into it, and swing it by it's handles.

    Some of the current, crappy plastic bags may not hold up beyond the swing. A pillow case might be better.

    The bag is better because it's improvised, and readily available.

    The pillow case makes it appear premeditated.

    You could always double the bag up, for

    **two times** the fun**...

    compressed air can held upside down with a lighter makes roughly a 10 ft flame thrower :D . My buddy used to use this method to heat his living room rather quickly when we were in college.

    Bear spray! You have a huge amount of pepper spray that will quell a crowd. Make sure large containers of pepper spray are legal in your state before you order bear spray!
