The fine for having a fire stick without a PAL is bad enough.

Hard to buy a fire stick without said PAL....and a hand gun isn't in my interest range that's for sure.    I have fired enough of a buddy's hand guns to realize that unless you do it regularly and I do not, best to stick with what you already are comfortable with.....I perfer something a bit longer with one of those tubes you look through with graduated cross hairs with in it.....and a red dot laser dot.....It sort of takes all the guess work out of what it is said projectile is going to strike.  lol....Then you also have the option of a shorter pump rock salt fire stick for closer encounters which may or may not be lethal....one rock salt.....one bird shot.......one slug......a graduated teaching tool...no....?

I bought a security camera system in Nov...just haven’t had time to install it yet. Will be a priority now.... in the mean time, we bought a hunting camera and mounted it in a tree near the garage in hope that it’ll see something next time around.

 

Should really buy a gun.... :(

 

i picked up a hikvision refurbed unit at a decent price ...and bought some fairly inexpensive hikvision colorvu cameras for it...

 

i am very very impressed with how well they work in low light /moonlight...

 

i highly recommend them...if the area is total darkness you can simply add an led motion activated area light (the colorvu has a built in led light but i turned mine off because i prefer the brighter motion light) 

 

 

the difference between the infrared at night and the colourvu at night is literally day and night..the colorvu with 0.0003lux makes moonlight appear as sunlight (i placed the motion light in the area that has many trees and lack of moonlight/streetlight )

My DIY security ....about 30 years ago before technology lol I had a problem with ppl stealing our snomobiles I took a motion sensor light and mounted it under the eave of the shed (wired it with an extension cord) directly above where the sleds were stored I pointed the sensor down at the sleds and in the socket instead of a bulb I put in a screw in adapter that turned it into 2 prong outlet now in to this outlet I plugged in a an old battery charger and ran the charge leads to 2 nice loud Chrysler car horns all mounted up under the eave of the shed it worked very well we would park the sleds go in and plug the cord to the motion light. And yes it worked great the sensor area was directly down over the sleds so it never went off unless someone was poking around out there and they were!  All we ever saw were the tracks they left behind...lol now days instead I would use a laptop adapter instead of a battery charger and for the horns some of them self contained air horns would be cool to scare the crap out of them.

my  tool shed has something similar but i used a deep cycle wheelchair battery ,,a solar panel to keep it charged ...a home security siren and the trigger is one of those emergency trailer brake actuators...i just reach in and hook the cable to the door to set it

 

then i leave the lock open in the hasp

 

 

the city recently changed all the sodium street lights to led and it dropped the quality of video a bunch so i had to add some motion lights and will probably add another one even

 

 

 

edit:and now i feel weird because i see i already posted most of this on the other page

You need to have a way to release something like skunk spray or bear spray onto anyone not welcome into your property if they get inside so to speak. Not sure if even this is legal any more....it's a sad world we live in where the criminals have more rites than law abiding folks do...... Personally I prefer the harmful approaches, sorry constable but I paid for my stuff so I expect to keep it...!!!!   I used to own a Jeep way way way back, my first one......I mounted a Mack Bulldog on the hood. Yes I was very young....lol.  Any way people liked to try and break it off at night damaging the hood etc  So one day I installed needles in the collar, eyes and nose of the dog, sticking out 1/8"...yes I realize illegal  so to speak now a days, but 40 years ago, questionable.....The next day I saw a blood trail on the hood, in the snow and it never got touched again!  The foot prints were my sized so it wasn't kids and the dog was securely fastened so it took strength to bend it the way it had been.  Some people simply need to learn the hard way....shame....but it's how some are wired.

Me too, and I'm too old to give a rats' @$$ about legalities.  You steal my stuff and I catch you, be prepared for some serious pain.

my dad has a similar story involving my grandfather...someone who liked stealing gas at night in the dark...and a gas cap with some fishhooks somehow attached to it (knowing my grandfather he probably soldered them on

 

it didnt take long to get a blood sample but that was way before dna was known
