    As a rule, when I'm hunting, I always unload my rifle at the end of the day, even if camping out. I usually keep a loaded small pistol in my pants pocket at all times when camping and I keep one at home in my computer bag which I keep near my bed at night. I keep my long guns unloaded at home...

    Hunting season has arrived and everyone around here is keeping a close eye on their dogs. Was at the feed store and they had beautiful orange safety collars for $9-$10 bucks. Instead of spending 50+ bucks on five new store bought collars, I ordered supplies for $10.86 online and have enough...

    I have looked, and looked, and looked for credible sites. Very few have any reviews or ratings of real people who have taken the courses. The best I've found is Summitt Training Source. They offer a 30 Hour Class for $179. I'm attempting to better my safety career through paying for my own...

    So, I'm a single young female that lives alone in an 800 sq ft apartment in a big city, and to top it off, by BOL is on the opposite side of the country, with the rest of my family. My thoughts at this point are, how to defend myself/barracade myself in my apartment if I need to stay put...
