1 TIP That Can Help Protect You And Your Belongings From Criminals

 1 TIP That Can Help Protect You And Your Belongings From Criminals Put your car keys beside your bed at night. Tell everyone, your spouse, your children, your neighbors, your parents, the check-out girl at the market, everyone you run across. Put your car keys beside your bed at night. If you hear a noise outside your home or someone trying to get in your house, just press the panic button for your car. The alarm will be set off, and the horn will continue to sound until either you turn it off or the car battery dies. It’s a security alarm system that you probably already have and requires no installation. Test it. It will go off from most everywhere inside your house and will keep honking until your battery runs down or until you reset it with the button on the key fob chain. It works if you park in your driveway or garage. Change the remote batteries regularly for the best range. Weak batteries can’t transmit the signal as far.  If your car alarm goes off when someone is trying to break into your house, odds are the burglar/rapist won’t stick around. After a few seconds, all the neighbors will be looking out their windows to see who is out there and sure enough the criminal won’t want that. And remember to carry your keys while walking to your car in a parking lot. The alarm can work the same way there. This is something that should really be shared with everyone.  This would also be useful for any emergency, such as a heart attack, where...

10 Ways to Stay Safe in a Dangerous World. 

10 Ways to Stay Safe in a Dangerous World. 

10 Ways to Stay Safe in a Dangerous World.  RELEVANT NEWS STORY . 1. WHILE THE CAT IS AWAY Some people left their car in the long-term parking lot while away, and someone broke into the car. Using the information on the car’s registration in the glove compartment, they drove the car to the people’s home and robbed it. So I guess if we are going to leave the car in long-term parking, we should NOT leave the registration/insurance cards in it, nor your remote garage door opener. . 2. GETTING LOST AND LOSING IT Someone had their car broken into while they were at a football game. Their car was parked on the green which was adjacent to the football stadium and specially allotted to football fans. Things stolen from the car included a garage door remote control, some money and a GPS which had been prominently mounted on the dashboard. When the victims got home, they found that their house had been ransacked and just about everything worth anything had been stolen. The thieves had used the GPS to guide them to the house. They then used the garage remote control to open the garage door and gain entry to the house. The thieves knew the owners were at the football game, they knew what time the game was scheduled to finish and so they knew how much time they had to clean out the house. It would appear that they had brought a truck to empty the house of its contents. Something to consider if you have a GPS – don’t put your home address in...
Review – Ganzo G7412 Pocket Knife

Review – Ganzo G7412 Pocket Knife

The Ganzo G7412-OR-WS Axis Lock Pocket Knife – I was contacted by Gearbest.com about reviewing some items from them (look for the review on their Convoy S3 flashlight; Coming Soon). I was surprised when the package showed up from the UK pretty quickly. In the box was the Gonzo G7412 and the Convoy flashlight. Both arrived in pretty basic packaging. I’m ok with that. They were bubble wrapped for protection and packaged well. On to the review… I carried the G7412 for a couple weeks. Now, I use my knife several times a day, for work. I cut everything from cardboard, to thin plastic sheeting. I cut masking and duct tape, electrical sheathing, puncture metal can caps (it’s the only way to open them), and cut masking against metal and concrete. Needless to say, I’m hard on a blade. So, when the Gonzo showed up, I was pleasantly surprised to find that it had an excellent edge on it. Literally “shavin’ sharp”. Seriously, I have the bald spot on my arm to prove it… I put this thing through my usual daily torture and it held up very well for a 440C blade. 440C is good metal but it isn’t exactly tier 1 steel. What I do love about 440C, is the ability to put a great edge on it easily. A quick pass over my DMT fine grit diamond stone and a few passes on the Tandy Leather Strop (at home) or the Lansky Strop I keep in my EDC kit, and the edge is slicing through that pesky 0.3mil plastic like butter. The Ganzo 7412 uses an...

Firearms – by Mark Anderson

Just a quick background: I started my formal firearms training by dropping out of High School and joining the US Army. Started as an MP, became a LRRP, Finished by becoming a Weapons and Tactics Instructor at Fort Jackson. After the Army I started college for Law Enforcement. Wound up as a Level 1 Reserve with a rural Sheriffs Department. While there I became active instructing in Automatic Weapons and Combat Shotguns. I have also been able to attend Gunsite Ranch back in the early 80’s when Jeff Cooper was still active there. I also attended Massad Ayoob’s Lethal Force Institute. Does this make me an “Expert”? Nope. Experienced? Yup. Opinionated? Yup. Remember, “X” is an unknown quantity and “spurt” is a leak under pressure. Beware of someone who claims to be an Expert. I wanted to write this as to give you all a little sage advice. And that’s all it is…advice. My pet peeve lately has been reading about and actually listening in the gun shops to people telling others which gun to buy. Only buy what they like, all others are substandard, too big, too small, wrong caliber, etc. Example; A family member recently purchase a Beretta M9 9mm. He asked me what I thought. I told him I couldn’t stand it. As he looked at me kinda funny I said, I hate the sights, The trigger guard bites into my fingers. I don’t like the grip as it feels weird and the trigger is atrocious. As he started to mumble a few choice words I told him that all things considered it was one of...
6 Personal Safety Tips To Help You Stay Alert

6 Personal Safety Tips To Help You Stay Alert

Today, I am going to focus on some personal safety practices you can use when you are out and about. 1. When walking or jogging, make sure you stay in a well lite area if at night or in a known neighborhood during the day. Be aware of your surroundings, both in front and behind you by keeping your head up and if you use headphones, keep the volume low enough to hear vehicles or just in one ear. Do not walk or run towards people who may be acting suspiciously or appear to be watching and waiting, avoid these unknown subjects by crossing the street prior to getting close to them and maintain visual awareness. 2. Walking to and from stores, mall, etc keep your head up and be aware of your surroundings, Walk with a purpose, do not divert your attention by texting or talking on the phone, digging for car keys or be burdened with too many bags or packages.
Distractions put you in “Condition White” and drastically decrease your natural reaction time. 3. If you are lost or can’t remember where you parked your car, return to the store and ask for assistance from a security officer or store employee. not Wandering around looking lost paints you as a potential victim. If someone you don’t know is in, near, or leaning on your car, do not approach it, walk back to where you came from and call police or security. When you do get to your car, look around it and inside before you get in to make sure no one is around or in it....
