So I'm new to the forum and although I always wanted to excercise my right to bear arms living in NJ always made it a secondary priority with the strict laws and wait times. But then 2 months ago my wife gets a knock at the door, she answers with my then 4 month old APBT by the collar in one hand and my 5 month old daughter in the other arm. This was a Friday, this guy proceeds to ask my wife for me by name and says that I own the house down the block and he is looking for the person who is renting it. My wife responds with no we just bought this house, now mind you we don't live in a particularly bad part of jersey or town for that matter. But he insists that I own this house and asks her to step in to the foyer to show her this paper he had which had my name my former place of employment and stated that I owned the house. So of course my wife didn't go out but instead asked is theres a problem he was posing as an FBI agent with a badge and everything. Flashes his ID like they do in the movies real quick, he says no there is no problem with a dog like that no one is going to rob this house. Now of course my wife starts thinking why the hell would he say that it wasn't part of the conversation. So he then just says well the person who is renting that house is owed some money and they were just looking to get in touch with him. After that he left, my wife calls me and tells me what happened. ( She is very street wise) Tells me she is not comfortable and would like me to come home so I did. The weekend past and its just bothering me so that Monday I called the tax department to find out if maybe when I bought my house someone screwed up with the paper work. You guessed it not listed in my name, so I call the Police department, FBI office in my area, and the sheriffs department. Asked them if they had sent out an officer that Friday well you guessed again no officer was sent out. A week later a man in a town not to far from mine was home invaded by four men posing as officers, they tied him up and robbed him. A week before my incident a man had posed as a department of water works technician and also robbed the home. Since then I have had an alarm system installed, installed out door surveillence with recording capabilities and will soon be armed. But I attribute the non-invasion to my dog who at 4 months 55 pounds with cropped ears scared him off and for that he will always get a little extra at dinner. He too is now being trained in personal protection. Nothing is more important to me then my family and I will do what ever it takes to protect them PERIOD! I'll post some pics of my dog tomorrow. Got to figure out how to do it on this site. Hope I used the right forum, if not MOD please move it.
