    im just waiting for the claims they couldnt see while trying to escape from the property and got hurt in doing so

    sooner or later that claim will come through the system agaisnt the smoke filled room

    I much prefer the deterrent of noise so loud it wakes the neighbourhood up yes it will hurt there eardrums but thats there own fault if you sign it with wear ear protectors :D

    and they dont so tough luck then

    single shot blanks and repeatable propane riffle comes to mind

    Simple to make, dunno about the legality of owning shotgun blanks in the uk though.

    I looked at fitting one of those in the cave, the problem was getting the blanks. Readily available but I couldn't get them posted to me due to carriage regulations. The shops would also have had to order in a certain quantity, too many for my needs. :(

    If one of them went off when you pulled a door open it would scare the life out of you and there would be no mistaking what had happened.

    nothing its not a firearm as its only on a spigot not in a barrel. a few month ago a couple of coppers came round asking if I had heard anyone screaming on the station next to my house . no sorry I haven't . can we look in your back field . yes but theres no point no one has been through my garden the infrared beams and cameras would be activated . had to unlock the gate and tell them to mind the 3 rows of barbed wire above the gate :)they had a look and asked if I kept animals in the field I said no why knowing full well what they meant . they said all this security and barbed wire im surprised you haven't got landmines as well :)well actually I have here it is on the gate post :laughing:they just looked at each other and left

    Pretty sure I saw one on telly where the alarm tripped a load of strobe lights and smoke...pretty hard to steal anything in a fog of smoke I think!

    Not sure I can say it on here but there'll be a nice surprise for the first person who puts a cordless grinder to it and creates a spark inside of it.

    Me too, I think anyone who owns tools and depends on them to earn a living feels the same.

    If these thieves would direct their talents to honest endeavour, they'd do very well in the world.
