How about calling 911 and reporting them? I see people on Next Door reporting this type of activity and most of the time those posters never call the police.

Calling the sheriff or 911 doesn't help a whole lot where we live. We are very isolated, away from mainstream everything. The only bad thing is that if something does go down, LEO will never get here in time. The last time we had to call it took them 45 minutes to get here and that was one of their quicker responses. If something happens which requires immediate response, we are on our own.

Same here. I think there is only one (sometimes two?) deputies on duty at night to cover the whole county.

Just the other day there were 2 guys that parked their silver car away from the house they were knocking on the door at.

In a cul-de-sac where I live.
No reason for them to be there I was taking the trash out and on the second trip they were still knocking on the neighbors door.

I went inside got a dark heavy coat and stood in the shadow of the Oak tree in the yard .
This was 8:30 pm. I also have my 45acp ready in hands.
One proceeded around the front of the parked vehicle in the drive way and looked around the side of the house.
I asked if they were lost and they said they were missionaries.

I said It is too late for this Bull **** you need to GIT!
I then said Hit the Road MFers .

I then thought UUUHHHH They could have a gun also.
So I squatted down to make myself a smaller target and still hiding in the darkness of the tree with my dark clothes on.

One walked to the car with his hands out in front of him and the other followed.

When they were walking up to the house before I rn them off they waived at me and I did not know them and to me that is a sign.
of a confidence booster type thief move.

I talked with the owner and they were gone and did not expect any company and have no dealings with missionaries.

A day or 2 later the neighborhood had 2 break-ins or 1 and 1 attempted and it was 2 guys in a silver car.

Probably the same squirrels.
I should have got a tag number.


Now for the question at hand.
I want a camera as i do not have a phone.
Or at least paper and pencil.
More ammo!
Not the (My) 1911 firearm as it is not as reliable on chambering rounds yet.

I will take my hi-point I kid you not.
Stupid accurate and never fail to chamber or eject.
A chest plate would be nice.
Or other type of body protecting device.

I do not need a bunch or crap hanging off my body.
That will slow down a foot chase or possibly make clanging or other noise as I am trying to move quietly.


"You serious, Clark?"

I understand that, but the call is being recorded the minute you dial 911 and you never know that day might be your lucky day and help is around the corner. It’s an interesting enough topic and deserves it own thread.

Frikkin A! I told off one lady who saw a guy kicking a door and snooping around the neighbor's yard to call to police instead of posting it on next door. There were 21 likes on that post in a few days time.

Calling 911 first thing is always your best bet. That way if something does go down and you have to shoot someone, you are on record having called for help first.

Personally if I am patrolling the neighborhood or just out for a walk, I like to be armed and with a couple spare mags, and my cell but I try not to stand out. It is all concealed. When I can get my sword cane I will carry that too because it blends in and I will still look like a non-threat. Remember the most dangerous threat, is the one you did not see coming.
