  1. Firearms General Discussion
    I've been shopping online for a small home safe, and I've noticed that nearly all safes now have digital keypads. Apparently the general population really likes the James Bond touch, and doesn't realize what a truly bad idea this is. Electronics malfunction. All it takes is a strong solar...

    I've always used Surefire and still do. But the Streamlight tactical lights are impressive with their ability for taking abuse.
  4. Pistol and Revolver Forum
    This curiosity came from the recent .44 load thread, I didn't want to derail it. What are your thoughts on a .44 magnum for home / personal property self defense, and open carry? Model 629, Colt Anaconda or similar.
  5. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Hey all, I made a video on the mechanics of handgun self defense, it also touches on the need to have well thought out plans BEFORE you find yourself in a crisis situation. Many folks obsess over their aim at the firing range and believe the goal is to take down an attacker with one or two...

    I want to take up a self defense system that's not rooted in any mysticism. I researched it as much as possible and I couldn't find any. Does anybody know if its safe from any mysticism?

    I wake up. It's the middle of the night, why am I awake? Did I hear something? Slightly confused, I hesitate for a moment, and think of going back to sleep. THUMP. Ok, that was definitely a noise downstairs, maybe near the back door. My mental haze clears, and I throw off the covers. Reaching...

    I have no idea how unique or plain this thought is, but here it goes: Could it be that a robber would have a higher chance of survival if you, the victim is armed, assuming you have extensive self-defense and/or martial arts training? Armed victim: The robber makes his attempt to rob you, with...

    Wack! Wack! My ears were the first to become aware. There was silence, only the sound of the ceiling fan broke it. Was the noise imagined? Some vivid dream or.. WHACK! *Crashing sound* My eyes shot open and I sat straight up surveying the room knowing that the sound I was hearing was not...

    So, tonight I was assaulted in broad daylight, because a couple of thugs wanted to make a statement in front of a crowd. Long story short, I walked my girlfriend to the car after going out. As soon as I get her in the car, the two guys approach me. One video taping the situation and one getting...
