I have wave file of 12ga pump and M16 bolt being drawn back. PM me if you want copies. The M16 plays on concealed wireless speaker if motion is detected in back yard. So far it has done a good job of scaring the racoons.

The wav file (the sound of the shotgun being pump/loaded) can also be found here. Then use a motion sensor to trigger the sound to play. There are a bunch of ways to cause the wav file to play. I use [the software] Bill's Voice Commander (BVC). BVC will not only play the wav file it will also speak the text I give it to speak... and it listens to/for the X10 commands (like a motion sensor) so it knows when to play or speak.

You can also do a similar project using an MP3 player, motion sensor, appliance module, and computer speaker.

My backyard voice warning can be seen in my old YouTube Video here. http://www.youtube.com/suitmanIM Good luck with your project!

Ah, before I opened the thread, I thought it would be about hooking a shotgun up to your front door and controlling it with X10. Darn  ;D
