Re: Do I really *NEED* a shotgun?

I always considered the shotgun as the PREMIERE home defense weapon. Nothing says 'get the hell out.' Like the sound of a racking a shotgun. On a dark night, in your house, with a shottie covering the door while you call 911, you almost can't miss. I would prefer it even to a handgun if I was statio...

Re: Signs of a zombie outbreak.

My boss has a friend, she tells me, whose husband died a few years back. He was an avid hunter and loved taking mule deer etc, all over the country. One day he started acting weird, very weird, he was admitted to the hospital, and when he tried to attack a staff member he was thrown in restraints. H...

Re: Good Breed for a guard dog. Cant be Pitbull or dobermann

I dunno a whole lot about danes. I know they were the preemininet boar hunting dogs in northern europe, and that they are friggin gigantic, but i have no idea if they are still usable as working/guard dog. I have never seen one used as a PP or schutzhund dog, so i couldn't tell ya. I do know that th...

Re: Good Breed for a guard dog. Cant be Pitbull or dobermann

I'm going to go out on a limb here and suggest a Boston Terrier. They're not so big you'd have to keep em outside and not so small that a would be burglar/tresspasser would just scoff at them should they encounter one. Plus it's in their personality to be VERY protective of their owners. My sister'...

Re: Good Breed for a guard dog. Cant be Pitbull or dobermann

Forgot about a standard poodle. Those things are usually great as well. They are classic working dogs, as in water retrieval, but their intelligence and size (standard poodles are big. real big) make for a good guard dog. They were used for police work by several cities in several countries in the ...

Re: Feral dogs

I was out for a run today and passed by a house that has one of those invisible fences for their dogs.

Re: Good Breed for a guard dog. Cant be Pitbull or dobermann

A Great Pyreneese is an excellent watch dog. They are huge dogs, over 100 lbs. They are often used in conjunction with hearding dogs to guard flocks of sheep. They're not the smartest dogs in the world but if anyone comes near your property they'll let you know in a hurry and they have a very scary...

Electrolyte imbalance? F/E imbalance? something along those lines?

A good lab actually should make a poor watch dog. They were bred to be extraordinairly friendly to strangers of all ilks. If you lab is showing guard dog tendencies, he may have some health issues.

A gun should be stored safely [ie unloaded] under lock and key. No arguments. If that happens to be close and you have the key on your person so be it. Where was it kept? Just lying around in a draw? What if a kid found it? :( An unloaded gun is useless. a locked up gun is useless. and why are rand...
