I mean well with the increase in population you will get an increase in crime you just have to accept it... wtf, why do we have to accept crime?

Then later when the guy suddenly starts talking about taking someone out where nobody will bother him and the crook, that sounds like an answer you get when you ask what you'll do if they hurt someone in your family, but lets just edit out the question.

Man that irritated me..

The average police response time here in the United States is roughly 10 minutes. Quite a few things can happen in that amount of time and I have no intention of playing hide and seek for 10 minutes if someone breaks into my home.



Gives me plenty of time to call my insurance company and mop up crew.

Dog tennis ball launcher, eh? Sounds...different


As for Ramboesqueness (is that a thing?)? It would beat the two alternatives. Killing, or being such. Let me know how it works out for you.

Its just an idea to keep it legal.

Probably not viable though, not enough oomph.

I don't know... It would, I suppose, depend upon the projectile used.

Would something like that be legal in Oz? I'm not familiar with self defense laws in Oz. Simple bows and arrows are allowed, aren't they?

Compound bows are legal.

As home defence? Very illegal.

We can throw inanimate objects at best ...

We can utilise some sporting equipment if we can prove we participate in said sport.

Oh, I think we may, under extreme circumstances, get away with throwing rocks. ( no slingshots )

It’s a pretty gray area, isn’t it?

I do recall hearing a story of and old fella shooting at a couple of intruders and getting away with it.

It does happen.

What about a empty beer bottle? Surely we're legally allowed to take a potential home invader out with a beer bottle?

It'd be downright Un-Auatralian to deny us of the right to crack a potential home invader over the head with a beer bottle... since, its all most of us really have on hand...

A sharp paint scraper on a 6 foot extension would make a passable spear,for that matter a 6 foot walking staff and a little practice would be formidable.More people are killed in the USA by hammers,clubs,and fists than by shooting.I would rather kill a intruder and worry about the law after,if you don't there may not be a later for you and your family.

That Japanese beer asahi has a good solid and heavy bottle


My personal favorite would be those spikes from a date palm fired out of a blow dart.

Those rules are insane. How can you even count on the cops when they may not even come to your neighborhood.You should be able to own a weapon and defend whats yours, pathetic.

Razor wire seems like a bit much honestly, especially if you have dogs... just get some good security windows and doors and rely on your blades if someone manages to get inside.



I hear ya but the wire is cheapest and the main worry is the dogs when we are not home.

I can be a scary mofo with a blade and the doggies, inside our own home in the dark.

Landlord won't spring for the permanent security.

One of them giant tree trunks spiked with bamboo that swings down out of the sky or a giant ball like in Indiana jones!

I can go with a couple drops of extra virgin on the tile stairs.

Better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6.

Little plate of sashimi at point of entry?

Wasabi and some soy?

Puffer cookies?

lol.

How about hanging a dummy, all bloody and stuff with some rotten meat for atmosphere?

Are we talking daylight break ins?

Baseball bats, aluminium. Swing for the fence.


A catcher's mitt is a decent knife deterrent.

I have no mercy for dirtbags that would invade someone's home.

Use bed frames for window guards to stop rocks etc.

When one room is broken, demolish it and stack the leftovers against the next most important wall for protection.

Buy a bale or armfulls of the best bags you can find and when the time comes fill with sand from the side of the bounday fence.

If you can afford it, buy the steel fence materials and hide them somewhere and when the time comes then put them in the ground.

pre-dig some crapper holes and put the large size PVC pipe about a metere or so into the ground with caps on them in readiness for use when the time comes. Buy a crapper that wll fit inside the PVC pipe if that can be done.

There's been plenty of cases where the property owner/occupant has taken physical action against an intruder and ended up in more legal trouble than the intruder. Defence measures like anything that could be considered to be a 'mantrap' are also highly illegal IE things like a pit in the backyard (with or without spikes). I recall at least one case where a fleeing intruder tripped over a garden hose or something left in the yard resulting in a fracture and successfully sued the owner for damages :O

Loud aggressive dogs are still ok though (as a deterrent measure)
