Getting Started – Beginner’s Basics for Buying a Gun

Buying a Gun in Firearms StoreGetting your first gun is a big step. The first thing you need is to be sure you are getting it for the right reasons and that you feel ready to take on this kind of responsibility. Owning a gun also means:

  • Keeping it locked away from others who should not be able to gain easy access.
  • Learning how to fire it and use it properly.
  • Cleaning it and maintaining it regularly so that it will work correctly when you want and need it.

Truthfully, the first step towards getting your first gun or any gun is making the choice for yourself that you want to own a gun and are ready for the responsibility. Some of this also means understanding your intentions for getting a gun.

One of the most common reasons for getting your first gun is for protection and self-defense. For others, buying a gun could be for sport or to become a collector, or various other possible reasons. Make sure you are aware of your reasons to own firearms, and if you are ready, you can move on to the next step.

Top Tactical Tomahawks

SOG Voodoo Hawk

SOG Voodoo Hawk

Tomahawks are the famed small axes invented in North America by her native people. The tomahawk is many things, but most of all it was designed as a weapon.

The tomahawk can be used as a tool for sure, but often a hatchet is a better small axe. Tomahawks gained extensive popularity after the European colonists settled in North America and Canada.

The Tomahawk was adapted as a weapon by the Royal Navy for their famed boarding parties. They recognized the usefulness of the tomahawk in close range and its ease of use. Even the modern U.S. Army issues a tomahawk to their Stryker Brigade for use in Afghanistan as a dynamic entry tool.

Best Non-Lethal Options for Self-Defense

Non Lethal Defense Weapons

Non Lethal Defense Weapons

Carrying a concealed handgun is the ultimate equalizer when it comes to self-defense. But is it the only ‘real’ choice for self-defense?

I believe non-lethal alternatives are still a good option for self-defense. No why is that?   The handgun is a lethal method that has no flexibility to its use. Some people live in states that restrict their citizens’ right to carry. Other folks may never be comfortable with a gun, but still want an effective self-defense option.

Some may want to complement their firearm with an alternative means to give them more flexibility for self-defense. Whatever one’s reason, there are tons of non-lethal options out there.

Deep Cover Concealment – Concealment Methods for Non-Lethal Items

PS Products Cell Phone Stun Gun

PS Products Cell Phone Stun Gun

Concealed carry has exploded so much in popularity that even traditional anti-gun bastions like Chicago have to acknowledge that a person has a right to conceal carry.

Now, guns are typically the most concealed weapon for obvious reasons; they are the great equalizer, but it’s good to have alternative options as well. Concealed means concealed, and there are both social and tactical reasons for concealing a weapon. The social are important, but not important for this post.

Tactically, the one concealing a weapon has the element of surprise, and the element of surprise is a true force multiplier. When an attacker chooses a victim he’s assuming they are unarmed and will be easy picking. I doubt any attacker sees someone and thinks he or she looks like a good fight.

History of Martial Arts

History of Martial Arts

The term martial arts refers to the numerous types of self defense and combat techniques practiced all over the world.  The origins of martial arts are thought to have been developed in the far East, in places in close proximity to China and India.  In its early stages, there were only a few different types of martial arts that were known to have been practiced.  However, now, there are tens if not hundreds of different forms of martial arts, which are practiced in almost every country.

Martial Arts Today

In modern times, many countries have martial arts that are specific to that country, although it is not uncommon for a martial art to have originated in one country, and then subsequently another country practicing a slightly different style of the same root martial art.

Different Knives and Their Uses

Different KnivesKnives: they’re a simple product, but in simplicity sometimes come profound capabilities.

Tactical knives are as relevant today as they have ever been, and without a doubt, they provide one of the best values and most utilitarianism of any self defense product currently on the market.

What Kind of Gun or Weapon Should I Buy?

Guns and Weapons of all kinds have existed for many centuries, and for many centuries have been evolving. You may be new to the gun scene, or you maybe an old pro, but the weapons available seem to be part of an ever expanding, and at times, confusing sea of guns and weapons which need some sorting out.

There are self defense, home defense, and military weapons; shotguns, rifles, and handguns. But which rifle, which shotgun, which handgun do you choose?

It depends on who you are and what the intended expectations for using the weapon are…  Is the gun for self defense?  Is the gun for Home Defense?  Do you plan of using it in your vehicle?  Is it a long range tool meant for deterring closer conflict?  Will you use it for concealed carry?  Is its primary usage for hunting or range shooting or fun, instead of protection?

Before these questions get an answer, you should explore the main varieties of guns and weapons:

Why Firearm Training & Self Defense Training is a Must

Female Shooter Training

Female Shooter Training

There are several reasons people buy firearms, namely for self defense, hunting, and shooting sports (although not necessarily in that order). Today we will address self-defense. There is a wide range of experience levels of those who shoot, ranging from I just shot a gun for the first time , to I’ve been shooting all my life. 

Whether you’re in the former category, or the latter, it never hurts to practice on a regular basis, as the only way to really master something is by repetition.

If you want to get better at shooting (or anything else for that matter), it takes practice, practice, practice. Especially in regards to self-defense, a handgun or rifle is not going to be much use to you in an emergency if you’re not fully confident of how to use it or if you can’t hit anything with it.

Even for the experts who deal with emergencies every day, they will tell you an emergency situation requires significant training to handle properly. When you have significant training, you don’t have to think about acting, you fall back on your training and know instinctively how to respond.

Effective Weapons for Self Defense – Mace & Stun Guns

Sabre Stun Gun

Sabre Stun Gun

There are many weapons on the market nowadays that can help you defend yourself that are both tactically effective and cost effective. Our philosophy is, there is really no reason NOT to have some type of tool/weapon on you just in case something were to happen.

I’m sure all of us can mentally fill in the blank on what something could mean. My personal definition of something is when anyone approaches me with the intent, or threat, of causing me bodily harm.

With technological improvements to self defense products over the years, these weapons are now, for the most part, very small and affordable, and easy companions for your pocket, purse, car or backpack. Although obviously not as effective as a firearm would be, non-lethal defense tools & weapons can still be quite effective and definitely give you a big advantage over not having anything with you at all.

Self Defense Knives/Tactical Knives

 

Tactical Knives

Tactical Knives

Tactical Knives can be very effective self defense tools. While not as advantageous as having a firearm, a knife can definitely improve your odds against an attacker vs. simply having just your bare hands (unless you are Bruce Lee, of course).

Even if you have no self defense training, a knife is both easy to carry on your person and easy to use.

Here are a few of the many reasons a tactical knife might work for you:

1. You are in a city where firearms are prohibited and you want a tool to be able to defend yourself if necessary.

2. You don’t have a concealed carry (CCW) permit and want a tool to be able to defend yourself if necessary.

3. You use a knife on a regular basis anyway but want one that is functional both as a tool and for self defense purposes.

4. You do not keep firearms in your home but want a self defense tool to defend yourself if necessary.
