    Nearby residents tell local media that there have been a string of burglaries in the area, but police have made no link.
    Give it a week or two and they'll have a link I'm sure

    AR-15, no home should be without it, though personally I'd prefer something more compact for in house defense...

    It works. Bit of an overkill for squirrel reduction but compared to taking out a $300 drone with a guided missile, it's fine.

    Long rifle not very convenient inside house, something like this might be more appropriate:



    On the other hand somebody who is prepared would make a long range ambush for burglars who leave your house with the goodies...

    Squirrels would be good practice for such situations too - bottom of the garden makes them a similar range to a fleeing burglar.

    Either that or the serial burglars will stop and it will be written off as the dead perps.
