Relocked
Cameras set
Dogs (large Lacey dogs that do not F around) on the back porch
Locked and loaded
First time since this began I felt the need to ramp up security
If someone comes through and makes it to the house, it will not be pretty. Dogs will absolutely get em first and if they fire a weapon toward house or dogs......it's on!

Y'all some edgy sons a *****es.

Speaking of keeping your edge, if you pop a *****, make sure you have the admins delete the texags post with your plan.

IF someone comes through I might just let the dogs have their fun. If you know Lacey's, they are pack & territorial driven.

Not really worried but why did someone mess with my gate?

Seems like nods and an IR laser would be more useful...

Lost. Drunk. Stupid kids. Thought it was their gate.

How did they "mess" with it?

Unchained and unlocked a thrown bolt. Left it slightly open for (in my mind) easy entry.

If you have a place, you know how you leave your gates.

Unlocked? Broken? Cut? Picked? Neighbor who has a key forgot to lock it back?

You sure the Amazon driver didn't have the wrong address?

Better call in those dogs before they find a porcupine...

Now that's a good point amazon (and porcupine too) but dogs have sentry duty for the night. They love it!!! Primal instincts kick in. But keeping them in the house area, not just running loose in the acreage. .... that's the plan anyway

Good plan so far. However I would recommend you call this guy ASAP.

You got a teenage son or daughter?

Chill out. You might be shooting someone you know

Make sure you have the place posted and have a beware of dogs sign up. My good friend had a similar issue and it turned out it was the power company coming through to mark poles with a new system. Co-Op guy got bit pretty bad and sued him and won quite a judgement. Trial was by jury and the whole deal came down to him not having signs up according to my attourney. We do that now on our ranches and also in English and Spanish.
He had received a letter from the CO - OP that they were going to be doing it but he threw it away thinking it was junk mail.
Our attourney told us it was really important to post the place with signs or purple paint and to have signs up about our GSD,s. Seems trespassers have more rights than the landowners.

Back from my walk about. All good. No excitement and gate still locked the way it should be.

Those Lacey dogs if I kennel, they lay down and sleep. Sasquatch could walk up and they would not care. But if they are out of kennels and loose, oh baby they react to everything.

This. I hear a LOT of, "if someone comes on my property I'll shoot'em"....well that someone could just be lost, someones kid, a delivery guy or whatever....either way, someone in the act of standing on your property, even if trespassing, is not a licence to kill them. You'd better think this through. Even if you beat it in criminal court, that civil court is a whole other hurdle.

Invest in a very strong flashlight (*coughs* Surefire) so that, if something happens at night, you can ID your target.

I too am a Lacy owner, and they will let you know if something is out of place or something/someone is around. If there is a threat, they will let you know...just make damn sure its a real threat before you pull the trigger.

Thought this was going to be about someone's wife getting frisky.

Driveway alarms and motion lights. Solar if no good power supply.

That's bird shot...that won't kill a man.

KerrvilleAg said he lives in the country like a lot of us do. Driveways are sometimes dirt roads that can be a mile or so long, so alarms don't work and motion lights around a home in the country would be coming on every five minutes from deer and other wildlife.

Electric company unlatched and came through my gate the other day. They were trying to get to some pole on the property behind me. Wrong gate. I know they have a job to do, but still feels like trespassing.

Just heard of incident outside Fredericksburg yesterday ...broke into house at night, attacked man, woman(fianc) fired warning shot then put one in his head when he didn't stop the attack...he's dead!!! Then the fianc made sure her man was revived (dude was choking him out) before calling 911 for intruder. Life flighted the scumbag to SA, wasteful use of money. I'll look for story to post when I'm home.

I read about that too. It was on Hill Country Scanner FB page. The victim was 70 something year old male. Lady who shot bad guy was 60+ years old. Bad guy was 20 or so.

Really, No kidding??
Quick thought: out here you help yourself and neighbors because Calvary ain't going to be in time.

Some people thought I was nuts for ramping up security after finding issues with my gate.

My wife's aunt and uncle live on tiveydale road, about 12 miles outside of Fredericksburg. How close was this to that?
KerrvilleAg

Tivydale is west of town. This was off 965 north of town.

No doubt the dead perp was the same guy that tried to get into OPs gate.
