I made notes when I wired the house, including where the feed starts after the panel. Up here, if you're building your own house, you are allowed to do the electrical, plumbing and gas yourself. Bummer was I had a few boxes of 20A breakers left from my previous house I was going to use, then bought the then current electrical code book and discovered most had to be arc fault breakers. They are pricey, but haven't been any issue.

 

Yeah, IMO the AFI breakers were, and still are, a solution to a problem that (for the most part) didn't exist. Lobbyists and big money started influencing NEC many years ago and hasn't stopped. The AFI requirements have added completely unnecessary costs to new and some remodels.

We have drivers that drive on the left side of the road here in the US also. We call them drunk drivers.:o

There is an rifle like electronic countermeasure that disables the drone's GPS, that wouldn't be shooting it down, probably illegal as well.

Having heard a security presentation by someone who did this under controlled circumstances witnessed by a Fed, his equipment was confiscated on the spot.

 

No charges (as he disabled his own drone), but he did not get his gear back.

Yep.

 

Communications Act of 1934 -- felony to 'jam or otherwise interfere with' approved electronic signals (radar guns, cellphones, GPS, radio communications/control signals such as RC cars or drones -- if it's associated with a device that's been commercially sold, it's an approved electronic signal).

 

I looked into getting a cellphone jammer once, this is what I came up against.

I wonder why the warden is wearing a vest?

 

If Patrolman Johnson, of the 12th precinct, gets shot in the big city, he most likely is getting shot with a pistol, and wearing a vest would be helpful.

 

But if Warden Barker there gets shot at in the deep woods, he's going to get shot with a high powered rifle, and that Kevlar ain't going to do nothing.

He's probably wearing a vest because; a) it's required by his agency, and; b) he considers it a possibility that he might be shot with a shotgun or with a handgun and believes it would be beneficial. Even after disarming a suspect in the field, they could have a second weapon concealed.

 

Also, wildlife agents aren't always working in the field. Some make entries into suspected poachers' and smugglers' properties to conduct searches. 

 

And even if it comes down to being shot with a high-powered rifle,  I'd guess some ballistic protection is better than none.

 

But that's just my thought -- YMMV.

Some years back I acquired an older, class 2 vest. We took it out to the range to try it out. It stopped pistol rounds just fine. It did NOTHING to slow down .308 rounds though.
