Why An Ankle Gun Holster Is A Good Idea

An ankle gun holster is a good idea on many levels. For people in law enforcement or someone in the private security industry, having an extra firearm can save your life in a pinch. We have all seen movies where a person is in a bad position and they quietly reach down, unlock their ankle holster, and before you know it they have the situation under control. While these are of course just movies, the idea is sound.

Back in the wild west, you were often not allowed to carry a gun in town; you had to give up your weapon to the Sheriff until you were ready to leave, so many people would conceal another weapon in their boot, just in case, so here is where the first ankle gun holsters came from. Of course back then it was quite uncomfortable and downright dangerous to carry a gun in your boot, you could accidentally shoot yourself in the foot and you could get bruised from the gun banging around against your leg.

While having an ankle gun holster is a great idea, there are some things you should know. If you are looking to buy an ankle holster, check around carefully. You want a holster that is going to fit snugly, but comfortably around your ankle. If you decide to buy one that has Velcro, make sure that this Velcro pad is large enough that it won't start opening just by your movements. Make sure there is adequate padding on the inside of the holster so you can carry your concealed weapon around without causing a bruise on your ankle. You want one that is not only going to keep your weapon secure, but one you don't have to fumble with when you need it. Let's face it, if you need to reach down and get your reserve weapon, it is going to be in a dangerous situation and the few extra seconds you spend trying to get out your gun can make you vulnerable.

There are a number of different people who may use an ankle gun holster. An ankle holster can be used by the military or law enforcement. For police officers', carrying a concealed weapon means that even if you are not in uniform, you have a weapon in case it is needed. There are many television reality programs where a person comes into a convenience store to rob the place and there happens to be a customer who is an off duty police officer shopping. They take out their reserve gun from their ankle holster and defuse the situation right away. Those that want to protect their family can do so without anyone else knowing they are carrying.

These are just a few of the many reasons why an ankle gun holster can be a good idea. Whether it is protecting your family, having a reserve weapon in case of an emergency or just for peace of mind, and ankle holster can be a valuable tool to help you protect yourself.

Liberty Gun Safes Withstand the Test of Time

Liberty gun safes take longer to break into than their competitors. It is said that the average burglary lasts 7 minutes. So Liberty Safe says that making a more secure safe is all about buying more time. The longer it takes a burglar to break into your safe, the less chance that he will succeed because he will just run out of time. To prove their security, Liberty ran a pry test between their entry level safe, the Centurion, and a competitor's equivalent entry level safe.

Both were full size gun safes that were tipped on their backs, this allows for better leverage. Ttwo men then attacked each safe, one had a regular pry bar and the other had a much longer, steel pry bar that allowed for better leverage. The timer was started to see if the safe's could hold up for the 7 minute average burglary time. The competitor safe lasted for 1:15, the Liberty Centurion gun safe lasted for over 10:00 minutes, about 10 times longer than its competitors.

If you think this is impressive, then you will really be pleased with Liberty gun safes higher end models. All of these models: the Colonial, Franklin, Lincoln and Presidential, come with security upgrades. One upgrade in particular is what Liberty calls "Tough Doors". There are five main features to a Tough Door:

  1. They are a composite door that is thicker normal, at least 1" - 1.5" thick.
  2. There door has inner steel plates to increase the door's rigidity.
  3. These Liberty gun safes have larger diameter bolts, bolts that are 25% - 50% larger than their competitors. The bolts also longer, extending 33% further from the door and into the frame. This makes it much more difficult to pry the door away from the frame.
  4. The higher end Liberty gun safes also have anti-pry tabs which increases a safes resistance to prying by up to 300% than safes without these tabs.
  5. They have more bolts along more sides of the doors. Instead of just having bolts along one side like most entry level safes, the Colonial and Franklin have bolts along three sides, and the Lincoln and Presidential safes have bolts on all four sides of the door.
One other primary security feature is that the safes all come with anchors to secure them to the floor. This way the safe cannot be tipped over for easier prying. It also makes it much harder to steal the safe for breaking into elsewhere when time is not an issue.

All Liberty gun safes are Underwriters Laboratory tested for security. In these tests professional safe crackers try to break into the safe. When a safe passes a certain level of security test, they are rated for that test. All Liberty safes are UL rated, with the higher end safes earning higher security ratings than the safe below them.

Later, Liberty did the same pry test that was done on the Colonial and its competitor, but on the higher level Lincoln safe with the Tough Door. For over an hour two guys tried to break into the Lincoln safe with pry bars, before they gave up due to exhaustion. That was one tough safe! If you need security, then look into Liberty gun safes, and you are sure to a model that suits your needs.

 


Night Vision Scopes for Hunting

Night vision scopes for hunting are often overlooked by even the most avid hunter because they seem cumbersome and unnecessary. Why would you need a night vision scope when most of your time is spent in the daylight? The fact of the matter is that conditions are not always ideal which makes having a variety of scopes a smart idea. Night vision scopes for hunting can greatly enhance your hunting capabilities in harsher environments and weather thus enabling you to hunt more animals than ever before.

Hunting nocturnal creatures can be a hassle. Their eyesight is much more accustomed to darkness than ours, making them a lot harder to sneak up on and take out. Having a night vision scope for hunting can make discovering and killing nocturnal creatures ten times easier than without a night scope. Hunting at night can make taking down daylight prey a lot easier as well. You will be able to catch them unaware and possibly asleep at night. You will also give yourself a huge advantage because many daylight animals have limited visibility at night as well. With a night scope for hunting you will be able to become a silent and more effective killer.

How does it work? Night vision scopes take in the limited amount of natural light in an area and enhance it to maximize your field of vision. It even brightens infrared light which is invisible to the naked eye. Night vision scopes for hunting can cost an exuberant amount of money which makes most hunters choose to purchase night binoculars instead. However, many soon find out that separate night vision devices are not as useful as night scopes. A scope allows you to keep your eye on your target before, during, and after the kill is made. If you're using a separate night vision device you will have to take the time to readjust your eyesight and rediscover your target when you go to make the kill shot. In that amount of time your target could move and you could lose it entirely. Like any hunter knows, the less amount of time between discovery and kill, the better.

A night vision scope for hunting is an absolute necessity for anyone looking to hunt cave dwelling or nocturnal creatures. It can be a bit difficult to adjust to at first but once you get the hang of hunting with a night scope you will be a much more prolific hunter and have an overall easier time. A night scope will make it possible for you to hunt effectively all day long; as night falls all you will have to do is switch scopes to continue hunting at your best. Do yourself a favor and get a night vision scope for hunting as soon as possible.

 


Hanging Game Feeders

Hanging game feeders are great to place in areas that attract a lot of deer. As many people are increasingly leaving the city, and building their homes on property that are close to wildlife, they will find that the deer will come to their property, looking for food. In some cities, people find that the deer will get hungry, and come into their yards, looking for food. After all, the deer are used to being in the area. When humans build their homes on land that used to be the home of the deer, the deer don't know that they should leave the area, and they have nowhere else to go!

If a homeowner has a vegetable garden growing in their yards, this will attract deer, and other animals that are hungry. This can be frustrating to the homeowner not only because the deer is eating their vegetables, but when the deer and the fawn come into the yard, they will destroy the landscaping with their hoofs. They also have an unfortunate habit of leaving dropping in the yard, which drives many homeowners insane! But, many people feel at the same time that they don't want to hurt the deer and the fawn, and they want the animals to be treated in a human manner. This is why they'd do well to invest in a deer feeder, such as hanging game feeders.

Many homeowners will use hanging game feeders along the edges of their backyards, or in the front, depending on the entrance that the deer like to enter into their property. For example, if the deer like to visit homes from the front of the home, then the homeowner could simply hang their deer feeder on a branch of a tree out front. This way, the deer and the fawn will be attracted to the feeder, and they won't be tempted to go to the back of the property, where the lawn and the vegetation is.

Or, if the deer are entering one's property from the back area, the homeowner could hang the hanging game feeders on a tree in the back. They could also attach a deer feeder along the fence area in the back. This will feed the deer, and this could deter the deer from hoping over the fence, and entering into the property of the homeowner. Not only are deer feeders great for the roaming deer, but they can feed other game as well.

It's important that if the homeowner buys hanging game feeders, or a deer feeder, that they buy the appropriate food for deers. Deers eat vegetation, and grass. They also will eat specialized deer pellets, as well as grain, such as dried corn. It's important for the human to change out the food, so that the food isn't rotting away from humidity, and the elements. There are also automatic feeders as well, which protect the freshness of the food that will feed the deer and their fawn.
