Re: Chem-light Brands

I don't think many of us "plan" on using chemical lights .... but they are good to have on hand for an emergency. I find they provide enough light to light up a small dark room - just to see whats going on. Water proof and battery-less. Perfect. This, to me, is their best selling point as well. You...

Re: Carrying while riding a bicycle.

I've had the best luck using a shoulder holster while CCW on a motorcycle. I'm sure the same principle applies for a bike.

Re: Biometric gun safes

Agreed ... GunValut has a very good product. Battery powered code safes can STILL fail, but it is very unlikely, as long as you make sure the batteries are fresh. I've got a several-year-old Stack On (i think?) brand safe, which is much harder to access than the GunVault, but I've never had it fail....

Re: Biometric gun safes

finger print readers are finicky at best. don't put items that can save your life behind doors that may or may not open quickly in an emergency.

edit: whiskey beat me to it.
