Multi-levels of perimeters

6 posts in this topic

Had a new kid from on top of our hill, hop our fence(6 feet high] to cut through our property to try and get to his friend’s home farther away. I “encouraged”him to hope back over, and go around. I hadn’t planted blackberry starts there yet, but I did this morning. My neighbor and I had  6 foot high chain link fence installed across the back property line of both properties, because of teens trespassing through. I installed no trespassing signs but apparently, this little turd chose not to read, and YES! It was in Spanish and Ingles’.  Yes, he’s Anglo like me. We then had to install barbed wire to further discourage climbers, but, not yet in the area, where this joker came over. I thought that with the fence, blackberries, barbed wire, trespassers would get the message.  Nope, little cretins are first class jerks. I added the extra barriers, so, that when our GSDs, challenge and bite them, we can prove their trespass was not “accidental”,thus negating litigation and liability. Plus, we want to be able to charge them criminally if it continues.

This led me to remember the multi layered perimeter approach we used in the military, same kind of strategy and tactics, we let their own actions, show us, if they are good guys, or bad guys. If at all possible, around your home location, see if you can (or want to) add a few barriers (legal) to show the claimed “casual intrusion”,is anything but.  Seems like a little thing, but it does work. Hope this helps somebody get creative and better hardened on their perimeters.

go out beyond your fence and use a post hole diggers and make a grid of pot holes and then scatter a pile of Broken bricks and round rocks (ankle breakers) throw your empties over and hope they smash on impact ------ or  motion sensors linked to a siren pointed out and cameras to document and turn over to law enforcement after the second time it is a felony trespass here or if they do damage or refuse to leave after being informed to do so. 

consider crimping the loops of barbed wire inside your fence thus inside your fence / property one person on the other side with hog rings and hog ring plier and as you raise it to the top edge they crimp it keeps them from leg / body roll over it can still be done with a blanket so in the days of WROL you can do the first paragraph on both sides along with blocks of wood with wire nails at all angles I also love 45degree angle cut differing lengths of rebar  you know punji sticks clap traps with a solar charger for cattle. trees with treble hooks on the tips of limbs I have a few more favorites but they are not people friendly.

i live in a mobile home park and we have the same problem its why i cant have a garden anymore they vandalize it every time...

that is just sad shows just how far respect for other people effort and property has gone but there again look at all the silliness going on it has finally boiled over in Vegas and the alt left is agging it on in fact even stated that they were probably Trump supporters and deserved it this is coming from move stars and pop culture icons how morally bankrupt and demonic can a human be the Las Vegas shooting was the most disgusting display of cowardice IMO.

there are more than a few groups attempting to start a civil war and numerous TV Internet and radio host have proved it they want to disarm America and cede our power to the UN who cannot manage their own countries promote socialism Marxism and communism splitting up even the left into splinter groups fighting each other like Bernie supporters and Hillery groupies.  I thought is was funny as hell when Nancy Pelosi was heckled and attacked at a presser she looked like a bug eyed goldfish she can dish it but can;t handle it.

There is a lot to be said for big ole dumb dogs. 

We keep an English mastiff on our property...curantly on number 4. We have had one for the last 20 years...in that time only one phyco tried to open the gate without permission. Thor our 150 lb mastiff took the guys entire hand in his mouth and firmly let the jack ass know he wouldn't be getting it back til I said so. This guy was WAY off his meds...babbling crazy stuff and being all round skitzo....but even he stopped dead in his tracks at that point...which gave me time to arm up and run him off.

Nothing beats a if dog to keep ALL kids of predators at bay....they work for rude little shitz too.

    • did you get the ruger or the cz for the trip?
    • Thanks Wally! I should have added, that no matter how hard I try,I continue being a poop magnet in life. Im going to get myself, some nice T shirts that read, “ Go ahead! poke the bear!” Or, “Of course, I’m an (insert favorite expletive here), I’ve been married longer than 40 years, my wife already let’s me know that!” I do think she would beat me severely were I to wear one of those!
    • what an adventure i am glad you made it back TP safe and sound...
    • So, we went out to the Midwest to see the son and his family. Trip out was uneventful, trip back was “interesting”.Hurricane Force north winds, driving snow and ice, and several idiots with vehicle keys that had no business operating any motor vehicle. Gangs of fun! No, seriously, it was the pits. Learned a lot, about our winter driving preps that we put into the vehicle for “just in case”scenarios like the trip coming home. No, we didn’t get stuck, or have to be rescued, we were merely inconvenienced as opposed to caught with our knickers down and twisted in knots. So, we are fanatical about never getting below half a tank, and that saved our bacon. We managed to get one of the last hotel rooms, in a nice small town, in a decent hotel, because we gassed up, upon arrival in town, before we did anything. We learned I-70 was closed and would remain so for about two nights. Well, in the a.m., it was opened for a very short window, and while others were in line at the gas (petrol for the Canuck) station, we and five FedEx tractor-trailer rigs hit the road. About 90minutes later, we were back down to 60mph sustained winds, with gusts going higher, and the folks behind us, got stuck for another night.  Of course, we had plenty  of TP, wet wipes, bags, water and food just in case, SUVs come in handy for hauling. If we had to be out in that crap we would have perished. Glad it wasn’t a century or longer ago!  So, while visiting with the family, we went out to dinner in the adjacent large metro area they live close to. I of course was legally carrying concealed, as was my bride, as we were leaving dinner, a few BLM knuckle-Haids, were trying to intimidate folks as a prelude to their strong arm robbery main goals. One of them, looked at me and said, accusing me of Oedipal relations with my mother, “why don’ you give me yer money?” My reply was 8ndeed polite. “Because, I don’t have to give you anything at all.” I calmly replied. His response was “interesting”, “ I’m goin’ to f*** you up!” My response was still polite, “No, you aren’t, and we’ve got nothing worth you and your associates dying for.” I looked him 8n the eye, and was prepared to draw and shoot him, until one of his associates said, “Dude! He be strapped. He be lookin’ to shoot a brutha! “ After be8ng called a few more invectives, which were neither original nor hurtful, nor threatening, (my wife WAS laughing), they jogged off.  Made me realize that my Glock 26 NEEDS a BUG buddy in my off side pocket, so I can still be “old man”polite and have my hand wrapped around a nice J frame equivalent. It dawned on me, that as I am getting older, still early 60’s and not feeling “old”, some jackass might think I’m an easy target. I would like to be grey man, and still be ready to go all Ninja-Pops on some Richard-head if needed. So, I’m now shopping for a new “friend” in earnest. I never “thought” I could be construed as an easy mark, even now. Huh! Learned something.  Oh, I did have my hickory cane with me, so, that item might have chummed him in, since he wasn’t an obvious intellectual standout. That was unintentional on my part.(really)  Have to have better wits about me from now on.
    • ....so the barrel is longer by a bit....but the slide and frame aren't? So you can just install the "evil" original barrel?
