This was on another forum, or maybe Facebook. But supposedly a sign posted at a residence"

Pretty good advice to follow just walking out your front door and going to work. You just never know

No such signs here. Given circumstances, such displays could go poorly in court. The kids gave me a "I don't dial 911" sign which I hung but one has to be within the living area to see it.
I removed the 'guard dog' sign and replaced it with "WARNING surveillance cameras in use". Non-threatening but sends a message.

I like the thought,, but I like to surprise anyone who'd try it with me home. Sadly, I wasn't home when we got broken into several years ago.

My SIL (retired LE) takes that one step further. He has:
"WARNING,
video cameras in use,
dogs on premises,
NO TRESPASSING,
per AZ code yatta yatta yatta".
Seems to cover everything, making note of applicable laws involved. :D

He started with beware of dog, then thought better of it because that implies you
KNOW the dogs can be dangerous. Where the "dogs on premises" is simply you
notifying others of them being at the house.

"Guard dogs on premises" is the signage we use for the areas where the livestock guard dogs are working. For information not as a threat. For the past 2 weeks, they've been in fields just outside my yard. Anyone or anything coming remotely near their assigned area gets immediate notice by means of deep throated barks/growls. FedEx guy asked the very first day if the dogs could reach the driveway.

I like the sign that simply says: "PROTECTED BY John Moses Browning."

In the late 60s a gas station close to me kept getting broken into at night when they were closed. So they put up a sign Beware Of Cat. Yep not your normal Cat it was a full grown Cougar that they would put in a cage out front during the day and leave loose at night in the station. No more break-ins. :D :D

Probably can't do that today :( :( Seems the old ways worked.
I almost forgot the owner of a junkyard in Rosenberg kept a Black Bear at his place.

Me too. Missed out of the opportunity a few years ago when I got broken into. They were going out the back door as I came in the front. Would of been messy. Was coming back from weekend in the woods. Still had my 10mm on my chest with heavy bear loads.

Civil lawyers get giddy at the thought of filing law suits against people who put up signs like that and shoot someone.

An old bootlegger in our area years ago (in the days when it was a "dry" county) kept a large black bear on a log chain in his front yard. One day my dad and I were quail hunting in the area, and dad drove up to Mr. Luther's place. He introduced me to the proprietor and the bear. Mr. Luther said, "yes, son, that bear has sobered up many a drunk." Some time later the bear got in the house and was reportedly attacking Luther and he had to shoot it.

Like that scene in "Death Wish."

"Do you love Jesus?"
"Yes I do."
"Well, you're gonna meet Him."

Why do I have a vision of your dog trotting around the yard with a gopro camera strapped to his collar?

Cutsie saying. Problem is it implies you will shoot someone. That's otherwise known as meditated (1st degree) murder. There are DA's all over the country like that jerk that prosecuted Rittenhouse, knowing it was self defense.

Well put.
No signs whatever at my place, especially signs having to do with guns. Advertising the fact that there may be guns in the residence is an invitation to thieves. And lawyers.
And making cutesy threats with generic signs is right out....

YMMV,
Jeff
