Trying to get their guns out of all the fully enclosed cases. But not me.

I just want to be clear about this. I'm supposed to live in a falling down shack and ride around in a crummy car just so the bad guys ignore me? Does that really make sense?

Not at all, but let's just keep it between us.

To Village Tinker,

Thank you for posting your fix to prevent lifting out the sliders. It looks simple and effective. I plan to install it.

No. You deserve all that you have earned. We honor your planning and efforts and feel better that we live in a country with second amendment rights.

We see your success at living independently as a tribute to your hard work and saving and we respect your habits that allow you to drive a decent car and live in a comfortable home and pay large taxes so that others can have a home and a car and a phone and health insurance...and a gun.

We all love you Skippy.





I am SO sorry. Sometimes I just can't be good.

To all who saw my idea and liked it, THANK YOU for the kind words. Agree with some for the previous comments, lets share ours ideas and keep the bad guys out.

PS: update on my design, one neighbor had much less clearance then I had, so we figured that you can use ANGLE aluminum (either 1/16 or 1/8 inch) and Velcro in a similar manner. Hope this helps.

Which subject?
Pick one:
Why are police at the gates?
The difference between burglary and robbery?
Door-to-door soliciting?
Local crime demographics?
Alarm systems survey?
Concealed weapons?
DIY Burglar Proofing?
Concentration of wealth?
Gerry and the Pacemakers?
Costume jewelry?
Are we gated?
Real estate licensing?


Did I miss anything?

With all of the talk about security, I may get this golf cart for driving around the villages.

Yeah, you left out the part about the poor being able to have health insurance.

You're right, gracie. Sometimes you ain't good!

"Concentrated Wealth" is all relative. Compared to most of our surrounding towns, we probably do appear wealthy.

HOWEVER, it's like running away from the lion. You don't need to be the fastest guy in the tribe as long as you stay ahead of the others! So, we become the targets for the envious, and those who ignore the threats become "lunch". Be prepared.
