    Most of the roads around here have so many pot holes http://i138.photobucket.com/albums/q...qster/hole.jpg have been patched it would be tough to know what was what untill you stepped on the wrong one.

    In the U.S. all one has to do is dig several potholes and mine only a few. Fill all holes with "Cold Patch" and it will look like the average American road with failing asphalt. Sawcutting a road leaves a large amount of obvious dust behind, is loud as hell, and will be noticed. However, if you are stillset on doing it cut in an irregular pattern and seal in a manner consistant with the crack sealing evident on most roads.

    Seen these. You have to wrap the shell with several layers of duct tape. (Is there anything duct tape won't do?)

    Years ago in school we were given a bunch of old blue dot flash bulbs, wire and batteries. The flash bulbs are cool because when one goes off in your face it actually incapacitates you for a few seconds and drives home the message. With a little imagination and practice you find out how bad it can get. Take a kleenex out of a box... poof. Take clothes off a hanger... poof. Pull a chair out from under a table... poof. Pick up the toilet lid... poof. Turn down your bed at night... poof. Open a cabinet... poof. Open a pack of ciggs... poof. Sit on a couch... poof. Open a car door... poof. Move danm near anything... poof.

    If you could get a couple of guys to train this, you can get pretty good at setting them and finding them in no time at all. I have no idea if you can still buy flash bulbs.

    Come on guys, use a 3/4 in pipe nipple. I know I am not the only EOD Tech here, but this isnt that hard.

    Not to make light of the subject, this made me think of a comic I found funny.

    I will remember that if the monsterous creature is within clubbing range, it is a tight situation, and start clubbing. This is true even if my firearm still works. No reason not to club and shoot at the same time.

    Ok, theres a lot of ground isnt getting covered here either.

    First off, you guys are making life too hard. Duct tape, black powder, this is all amatuer hour stuff.

    6in 3/4 in pipe nipple, a roofing nail and an end cap, with a 12 ga shell. If I have to explain that you need to go back to the airsoft field. Mousetraps are theoretically just the thing for running a trip wire setup for these.

    Second, the majority of burgalar alarm triggers( i.e. magnetic, passive IR, active microwave etc) run on 12 volts. Thats all Im gonna say about that issue. Use ya damn head for more than supporting your ears. If it will sound an alarm, it will probably, theoretically set off a cap or flashbulb.

    Nothin says lovin like a passive IR goody left behind to "educate" pursuers.

    I would never actualy consider this, it would be illegal.

    ATF boards: boards with nails sticking up right; you could use said boards to funnel enemies into a .'fatal funnel'. Think Montgomery at El Alamein.
