I kinda want a Roo Catcher* (Bull Guard here in the States, I think) built onto the front of my bus. In case I ever have to shove something out of the way (...like a WALL), but that's more like SHTF And Everybody Went NUTS stuff than anything else.
Bullet proof glass, heavy and expensive. Looked into the Lexan as an alternative since that stuff is strong and lighter weight than glass. But then my information might be out of date so don't hold me to it.
I have plans for a modified WW1 era flame thrower but that more than likely won't work for anything but novelty stuff ("Hey, dude, check this out! Hold my beer!" <-- Famous Last Words) and weed control/clearing land. It can switch from Gasoline to Water depending on which tank I'm using.
I'll have a very large dog at some point, but I think we all know that the Gentle Giants tend to be couch 'taters than attack critters. Pita was an attack cat.
Just to cover me arse**, I'm gonna sign up the bus with "DANGER: BEWARE OF DOG" at any rate.
If I'm home I
should be considered a deadly weapon, especially if you're interrupting my studies or painting.
If I ain't home, well, I do intend on having a security system on a battery backup. Because...
My, uh, my store was broken into the other day. They cut the power and the SecSys wasn't on the battery bank like it was supposed to be. Nothing's been taken but they did break our door. And I know how they did it, too, just not the who or why yet. The Police squad here didn't even fingerprint the breakerbox or the fuses for next door that were yanked out.
But if anyone REALLY TRULY BADLY wants in, they're gonna figure out a way in.
I intend on never keeping anything worthwhile anyhow.
