    Very nice, but I still want the one that says: Forget the big dog. Beware of the owner. Posted under a picture of a nine inch target with a three inch group of .45. (Or 9mm would do nicely.)

  2. Joel says:

    Aw, c’mon, ML! I can get something like that at the local drugstore. (Couldn’t find a pic with the target group, though…)

    You know, out there, there is the SJW version of ‘here, hold my beer and watch this’ that will enter. Then their lawyer will tell the judge that the sign was an attractive nuisance and they/their client needs monetary compensation for real or imaged injuries cause they thought you were BSing them.

    One thing I learned over several decades doing emergency response at the Toronto Zoo & Ontario Place is that while signs are very nice, no matter what is on that sign people will do what people will do. You really can’t fix stupid.

    My neighbors S&L had a no trespassing sign at the foot of their steep driveway, then for some reason S had put up poles and a chain at the top of the ridge about 200 yards up the driveway. I used to sit on Landlady’s ridge with binoculars and watch tourists come to that driveway – which was at the end of the road so it kind of looked like a continuation of the road – stop, read the sign, then drive past it till they got to the chain. Got to where they’d worn a regular turnaround right at the chain.

    It was at least somewhat at my recommendation that he put the current gate where it is now, where the sign used to be. That fixed the problem.

  6. “Protracted court battle”, etc…

    I’m not finding any references to this step in my 3 S’s manual…

    😀 I didn’t write the sign…

    Anyway, the first rule of Curmudgeonly Hermit Club is no written references to the 3 Ss.

    I prefer to keep it simple:

    “Trespassers Will Be Violated (survivors will be shot)”

    >:-)

  9. MamaLiberty says:

    I think you got that a little garbled… Isn’t it supposed to be: Trespassers will be shot… survivors will be shot again.

    🙂 I’ve actually seen signs that say that!

    “Aw, c’mon, ML! I can get something like that at the local drugstore. (Couldn’t find a pic with the target group, though…)”

    But the target group is the whole point. LOL A real target with real holes in it. Anybody can post a picture of a gun. 🙂 I’d have done it long ago, but I need to make the sign and target weather proof.

  11. Joel says:

    I believe both versions are canonical. 🙂

    . . . and likely evidence of premeditation . . .

To the stake with the heretic!
