What holster works for me?

With so many companies out there and hundreds of designs it can be hard to make the right purchase for a holster. First you need to figure out how you are going to carry. Open carry? Concealed carry? Both are great, but each have there pro’s and cons. How you feel about it really matters. How you dress matters. Your lifestyle will play a role in it as well. Can you wear a firearm on the outside of your clothing and still conduct your daily business? Now when I make comments about this keep in mind I am very comfortable with firearms and makes me feel safe seeing some Responsibly armed citizen with a firearm on their side. But a businessman in a suit may not look “right” open carrying. Then again if your pants are worn below your butt cheeks maybe carrying on your side may not work well no matter what you do, Continue reading

Guardian 1300TL Tactical Light By SUPERNOVA Review




The Guardian 1300TL tactical light is the most powerful flashlight in its class. With a background as a Certified Corrections Officer, Protective Security Officer and Owner of a Contract Security Company I have seen a lot of tactical flashlights. This tactical light is the best I have ever seen. Weighing just 5.1 oz.(145 Grams) it is light and easy to hold with one hand unlike other full size lights with a quarter of the power. The flashlight is 6.25 inches(15.8cm) in length and 1.75 inches(4.5cm) in diameter. That does not steer away from the fact that this unit is made of smooth, brushed aircraft grade aluminum alloy finish that gives the light a scratch and shock proof exterior. The upper to this has a stainless steel strike bezel for the perfect blows to the face, stomach or the kidneys given you the advantage over any attacker. The technology behind this tactical light is just as impressive: Continue reading

Personal Safety Tip Of The Week: Is Your Gun Safe All It’s Cracked Up To Be?

 This weeks post is about gun storage safety. I was so excited. My wife bought me a new gun safe for Father’s day from Amazon. I spent a while online reading about safes and knew just what I wanted. Now we are not rich so price was a big deal when it came to this and the one thing I wanted was a bio-metric safe. If you are not sure what that is, it’s when you can scan your fingerprint on the safe and it opens. I have had a Gunvault handgun safe for a while and I love it. Having kids always around, safety is a MUST and the Gunvault was perfect for this. Having a key and quick access option of four buttons on top in the shape of a hand print to program in any combination you want. But now it has come time that my guns I have are too many to fit. Plus quick access to all my guns and safety is important to my wife and I. When you know someone is in your house to do you harm, you will never have time to get in the closet, grab your shotgun, take the shotlock off, and load some shells in. My hand gun was always ready with a full magazine in my Gunvault right beside my bed. But when I left for work, That was also my service piece that I carried. So my wife was left with a shotgun unloaded and not ready. Time to upgrade. Continue reading
