Violence or Defense, Bullhide, How Are You Packing & A Great Safe

**************************************************************************************************

Anti gun people never understand one small thing... I am not committing an act of violence if I should draw my sidearm in self defense.  I am reacting to violence against me and mine,  I am not being violent.  I am stopping violence.

Big difference.

I bought my first gun belt from the Holster Store Custom Leather on Ebay for $39.95.  Thick, heavy, stiff, it arrived a few days later. I shipped it back to them 5 days after I received it when the inside of the belt, at the holes, cracked and peeled to the point it was flaking off.  A complete piece of junk.  Filed a complaint, with pictures, to eBay and my money was refunded.

I didn't want to spend a lot of money on a good belt as I am in the process of losing a lot of weight.  But buying cheap didn't work.  So I went back online and ordered from another company.  Just yesterday I received my new one from Bullhide Belts ($74.95) and it looks miles better than the other one.  It comes with a three year warranty - I bought the belt in the picture here.  Hopefully it will do its job for the foreseeable future.

UPDATED:  This belt has been terrific!  One year into everyday wear and it is still stiff and straight.  I wholeheartedly endorse Bullhide Belts!

This country averages around 385,000 home fires and roughly 600,000+ defensive gun uses each year.  Average response time from the Fire Department and the Police is about the same, 6-9 minutes.  Now, if the anti gun people claim you don't need a gun, because the Police are only a phone call away... why do they have a Fire Extinguisher in the home?

Do tell...

You could give me 1000 situations and I believe I would be hard pressed not to find a way to skee daddle in 999 of them.  I want out.  I don't want a fight.  I don't want a confrontation.  I just want to go home.

What do you use as your range bag?  My Father-in-law passed in 00' and I use his leather golf accessory bag.  Three zippers - Main bag and two side bags.  Works great for my guns, ammo, eyes and ears.  In the bag you will also find a small tool kit, targets, gun oil and other miscellaneous stuff.

I use the Sentry Safe gun safe for my close-by storage.  I tried a couple of other safes (made very chintzy) and saw a video of how easy it was to break in to some of them.  I then read reviews about the Sentry Safe, bought one and never looked back!  The Sentry Safe's reset button is under the battery plate and can't be reached without opening the safe.  The leading edge of the safe door is rolled down to make it very difficult to get a wedge in deep enough to pry it open.  Its 12" x 9-15/16" x 3-3/16" x 3" and it weighs 12 lbs!  I'm not saying you can't get into a small safe with a little extra effort, but this one makes it a little more difficult.  I have five Grandkids at my house almost daily (we have a pool and they live less than a mile away).  They range in age from 2 to 11 and I don't worry at all - that and the fact the safe is butted up to the ceiling of the wall (I'm 6-3 and reach it just fine).

I would recommend the SentrySafe to anyone, and do it without reservations.

How do we educate the public on the Second Amendment?  How do we make them understand that guns aren't the problem, but the people behind the trigger?  By being the cogent, concise, low key and rational one in the discussion.  That's how you educate the populace.  That's how you find vindication.

Gavel Graphic from Fully Informed Jury Association
I have served on several juries.  I've found it quite interesting and enjoyed the experience.  Plus, never forget Jury Nullification!  The layman's power (and by the Constitution - our Right) to tell legislators that a law is no good or that a law is unconstitutional.  A judge who tells you - 'if the evidence shows the defendant is guilty, the law requires you to vote guilty' is lying to you.  Once in the jury room, you can vote whichever way your conscience leads you.
