Ha! Rambo is not available then for my house in Tegu. Well, never mind, I already have a man with a gun who watches the gate to my humble abode in Tegu.That's what we do in Honduras. We really do have men with guns. And signs that say perro bravo. (brave dog). In NOLA, I have a shotgun and a rottweiller. Nuff said.

Laurie, so if somebody broke in, would you use the gun? That's a big ethical debate for me, am I capable of hurting/killing someone to defend myself?

Yeah, be careful of those perros bravos, they are not only brave(valientes) but also angry(bravos)!

We're friends with a bunch of volunteers who live and work in Honduras. They are always happy to stay at our place. We also live across the street from a security company. And our nieghborhood has a security patrol. We have a very trustworthy gardener, too. He's always working in the neighborhood and he watches the house. I've also set booby traps.
