Or even an Akubra, and I bet he's got one of those fancy foreign dogs instead of a dingo.

Thinking about home defence I think the best Aussie solution is one adapted by our troops and pioneers throughout time. Guts, Determination, Common Sense and the spirit to defend what is rightfully ours

My first layer of defence is the lego minefield, depth is provided by larger childrens' noisy toys which make noise if bumped along with toppled kids furniture and numerous tripwires made up of controllers randomly attached to various games consoles. Furniture is arranged in a random complex pattern labeled " Just put it there Darling!"
If they get through that unscathed.......

I NEVER KEEP NOR CARRY ANY INSTRUMENT FOR SELF-DEFENCE!

SUCH IS THE LAW WHERE I LIVE.

AND.

I RESPECT AND OBEY THE LAW!

IN IT's OBSERVANCE!

NOT IN IT'S BREACH!!

Chemical fire extinguishers in the home and the vehicle are to put out fires, just as the First Aid kit in both are to treat injuries.

I would not dream of spraying anything other than insects with Baygone.

There is absolutely NOTHING sir/madam in my kitchen or tool box which was EVER designed or intended for the destruction of any other human being!

My long torch is for power failures and road breakdowns ONLY.

I do not own a gun.

My bow is for target practice only.

I would NOT own a slingshot as such things are illegal where I live.

I am a gentle and pacifistic man who KNOWS that the pen is mightier than the sword and that a car is mightier than both.

How ANYBODY could possibly have such a sick gun fetish as to be cleaning their telescopic sighted double barrel Luger shotgun a 0300hrs is beyond me!

I just think you all worry too much. :-(

i'm in a van also so limited space is the issue... i have a baseball bat near the door as a deterrent but no room to swing it ;p

currently have 6 knives, two hiking staffs, a piece of metal pipe and all the knives and forks in my cutlery drawer 4 feet away from the caravan door

terrible shame.... ;p

why are you on this forum then ? not having a go but seriously curious...

i am here as i grew up in the bush going camping and hiking etc and this is a great place to maintain and learn new skills AND to also see what other people are up to around the world...

i do believe at some stage in our lives we may have to decide if we need to head out bush or defend ourselves, either from a man made threat or from a natural disaster

i think the only real threat Australia will face as far as i can see is the 2029/2036 asteroid "Apophis"... apart from that i hope we are too far away for any "real" wars to threaten us - http://www.universetoday.com/35645/2036-asteroid/
you never stop learning...

Kind of limited for time but even a cheap pressure washer will put somebody down at a decent range

42 feet is a little long, don't you think? How easy is it to use such a long implement?

Long, - (not lunar long sjambok is a fine deterrent for snakes and mean tempered mutts).

It is also a sex toy within some circles.

And by law no-one should be discriminated against because of their sexuality.

B...but ........."YOUR WORSHIP!........MY WIFE WOULD LEAVE ME IF I DID'NT SPANK HER WITH THIS!!"
