I'll look into the "kill stick" and for the sprinters maybe a crossbow with some cord attached. I f*#king hate chasing perps.

The Swine Hole thing is good too. I better warn the UPS man.

- short range: pop a haulbag over their head, and dispatch with hammer. You should have some durable bags around, good for multiple uses, and this system also contains the splatter. For 2 meth heads at once, deploy the Snake Charmer.
 the sprinters: toss the special bolas, made with Fish hooks and funkness cables. Then saunter up and deploy the short range tactic to finish off.

You could get a German Shepard, or a Rotweiler, or a Troll.

An official Red Ryder carbine action 200-shot range model air rifle with a compass in the stock and this thing that tells time.

Just don't shoot your eye out, kid!

The answer is the M18A1 Claymore mine. At 50 yards it provides a kill zone 6.5 feet high by 55 feet wide.

The drawback is that any tripwire activated configuration is prohibited by the Anti-Personnel Mine Ban Convention. So it must be command detonated.

You could take one of the Thai slave girls sewing down in the basement and put her to work manning your new Claymore Command and Control Station.

That Glaser Safety Slug doesn't sound, well, safe! Not if you're slugged anyway.

I like the bolo idea.

Anybody in the market for an atl atl?

I guarantee Russ comes at you in some black jammies pointing a poison dart equipped blow gun at your meth addled neck, you're outta there!

given where you live, in proximity to 29 Palms (and Pomona), you should look into getting one of these babies:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phalanx_CIWS

mounted out on the periphery of your property...
could be hell on the coyotes and other small critters though...

pretty sure you can program that rig not to shoot holes in your house, get them before they get in alleviates the need for messy cleanup of the compound...

this will also work if they try to come in from the air...



no need for nukes...

G'damn! That Phalanx rig reminded me of the Hippo Fart vid! Looks very effective for perimeter security.

We're talking CA here. No more than 10 rounds or suppressors on that rig allowed.

Anyway, I think we're really overlooking the weapon choice of Klingon warriors everywhere:

I'm pretty it can also serve as OW pro in a pinch.

Step up Russ, don't be a wuss and come at them mano e mano brah! You don't need to go shootin on people, use yer wits and if needed, fists. Thats what I did last go round I caught some jackwad trying to climb in my house window. 3am, in nothing but my skimpies ....


...talkin to the policewoman afterwards...nearly buck assed naked....3am near naked outside in teh cool night air after the post confrontation adrenaline rush: shrinkage comes to mind....humorous to me given the arsenal I'd left back inside my home.

However on the advice part, I'd personally go with a 12 ga if I could only have a single weapon. It would be a Mossberg Mariner 590. 2nd choice the 870 Marine Magnum.They typically come with full stocks but you can put the pistol grip on it. Shooting it in that configuration will work your manliness and ain't for the limp wristed. It's for personal defense only, and no joy to practice on it. Here's my son holding the short config 870 Remington. They go for under $300 I think.

Marine magnum version I'd rather have.

If I added a pistol it would be a .45 Sig Sauer P220 in stainless. They make a couple models, the Sport N being a larger, but sweeter shooter. If you go down this road, get a nice safe with an electronic lock (fast access) to keep your stuff in. Or some good hiding spots like this clock below.

Meth heads are basically like zombies so I'd go with a crossbow.
